Parkway development report delayed for third time

Ottawa East News

A report for a Beaverbrook development proposal has been postponed for a third time.

The release of the city’s report on a nine-storey building proposed for 2 The Parkway has been pushed back again, as has the planning committee meeting.

The city’s official plan doesn’t support a nine-storey building, said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson at her ward council meeting on Oct. 22. She said the developer is pushing to keep the development as is and has threatened to go straight to the Ontario Municipal Board on the matter.

“It’s back to the drawing board,” said Wilkinson.

The original report was to be released at the end of June, but was pushed back to August after the developer learned the city would not support the proposal. A third revision for 2 The Parkway was submitted to the city so the report was delayed to the fall.

Wilkinson said she is unsure when the report will be released to the public or when it will be heard at planning committee, but will continue to update residents on the progress.


Minto Group has started servicing its Arcadia development near Huntmar Drive, said Wilkinson, adding the public school board is looking at a possible new school site near the community.

Wilkinson said the developer who owns the land at 1131 Teron Rd. is looking at reducing the height of the proposed building, but nothing has been set in stone. She added if significant changes are submitted another public meeting will be held.


Kanata and Stittsville community police officer Const. Lori Fahey updated residents on crime statistics in the area.

She said theft from vehicles is still the top offense in the west end.

“Make sure you keep your vehicle locked,” Fahey said, adding the thefts are mostly “crimes of opportunity.”

She said the number of thefts isn’t as high as in other areas of the city, but she still sees “more than (she) likes.”
