The City of Ottawa has received a request to amend the zoning by-law to allow a commercial development at the south west corner of Fernbank and Shea. The land is currently Rural Countryside Zone (RU), and the proposal seeks to change that to General Mixed Use Zone (GM)
The proposed development would include a grocery store, restaurant and retail stores at 5960 Fernbank Road. All of those uses fall within “General Mixed Use”, and since the land is part of the general urban area the rezoning will likely be approved.
The land is former farmland, and has been owned by William “Bill” Davidson since 1975. Davidson now lives in Pakenham but grew up on the farm. Planning documents refer to the land as “Clydesdale Meadows”.
