Kanata North Council expresses similar view to Knoxdale Merivale Council
In a letter to the Ottawa Mayor from a Council similar to the Knoxdale-Merivale Council their chair said in part: ….. As you may be aware, the community associations in Kanata North have united to form the Kanata North Council of Community Associations. Created to address the shared issues facing our community, and to reach out to other citizen organizations across the city, we are taking a proactive approach to planning our city. We have been working with the Federation of Citizens’ Associations (FCA) and have also discussed our desire for change with several other key organizations within Ottawa who share our goal. Many citizen groups are seeking change to the current planning paradigm, and to enshrine meaningful changes to the Official Plan of the City of Ottawa, the Planning Act and the Provincial Policy Statement, as deemed necessary to remedy the current frustrations of the wider community. Knoxdale-Merivale Council and the FCA are seeking changes in the current planning paradigm.
