Public meeting on Preston-Carling district plan

City of Ottawa

Urban design consultant George Dark's recommended development plan for the Preston-Carling district, one of the fastest growing neighbourhoods in the city, will be presented at a public information session on Tuesday, February 5.

The Preston-Carling strategic directions will complement two community design plans in the Preston Street corridor: One for Bayview Station District at the north and Gladstone Station District farther south.

This information session will be a chance for residents to see and comment on the Mr. Dark's recommended approach for redevelopment of the Preston-Carling district, including project timelines, and to view the results of a recent public design charette. The Preston-Carling district plan was commissioned to ensure orderly development after the City received a number of applications for major developments in the area.

The charette was conducted by Mr. Dark and resulted in a model showing possible buildings, greenspace and transportation links. After the public information session, City Planning staff will review the public comments and present their recommendations to the City's Planning Committee and Council for consideration in March.

Date: Tuesday February 5, 2013

Time: 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Location: Tom Brown Arena, 141 Bayview Road, Ottawa
