An official plan amendment, approved by the City of Ottawa's Planning Committee, is expected to update policies for city-owned lands in order to encourage development of a main street and greenspace in the Kanata Town Centre.

The city owns 11.6 hectares of vacant land in the Kanata Town Centre, south of Campeau Drive and east of Kanata Avenue. A concept plan for the area was developed in 1993, but the lands remain vacant. 

The amended policies encourage future development by revising minimum residential density targets to reflect buildings constructed to date. 

Changes would also allow for more open space and provide a functional design for the reconstruction of a portion of Kanata Avenue, potentially a central main street for Kanata.

This item will go before city council on Wednesday, November 28.
