March 4th - Notice of Public Meeting Concerning a Proposed Plan of Subdivision
This notice is to advise that the City of Ottawa will hold a Public Meeting on Thursday, March 24, 2022, at 6:00 PM through Zoom (video conferencing) to discuss a proposed plan of subdivision. Instruction to participate is available at the bottom of the page.
The Owner, Minto Communities Inc., is proposing to develop a 600-unit residential development consisting of back-to-back stacked townhomes with approximately 560 underground parking spaces and 132 surface parking spaces. The north block will have vehicular access from Glenroy Gilbert Drive, while the south development will be accessed from Chapman Mills Drive on the south and Glenroy Gilbert Drive on the north.
The City of Ottawa may choose to give or refuse to give approval to a draft plan of subdivision. The Planning Act, as amended, limits the rights of appeal from such a decision to certain defined “persons” and public bodies. It should be noted that the list of “persons” who may appeal is narrowly defined (such as electricity and gas utility operators) and does not include a general member of the public.
If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at the public meeting, or make written submissions to the City of Ottawa in respect of the proposed plan of subdivision, before the City of Ottawa gives or refuses to give approval to the draft plan of subdivision, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision of the City of Ottawa to the Ontario Land Tribunal.
If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at the public meeting or make written submissions to the City of Ottawa in respect of the proposed plan of subdivision before the City of Ottawa gives or refuses to give approval to the draft plan of subdivision, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Land Tribunal unless, in the opinion of the Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to do so.
If you have received this notice because you are the owner of a building within the area of the proposed plan of subdivision, and the building has at least seven (7) residential units, it is requested that you post this notice in a location visible to all of the residents.
This meeting will be held through remote electronic participation in order to comply with the Reopening Ontario (A Flexible Response to COVID-19) Act, 2020 and associated regulations, which continue to impose limits on large gatherings and support social distancing as part of the Province’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The chosen technology for this meeting is Zoom, which allows for participation by telephone, as well as by computers and mobile devices.
Persons who intend to participate during the meeting may wish to register/sign up in Zoom, if they have not already done so. The following information is provided for your consideration and guidance during remote participation in the meeting:

If you join the Zoom meeting through your phone, please do not put the phone on hold at any time, as this will result in broadcasting “hold music” online once your mic function is unmuted.
To optimize call quality when using a laptop, a headset with microphone is best if available to you; otherwise, whether using your laptop microphone or cell phone, please speak directly into the receiver and do not use speaker phone.
