REPORT RECOMMENDATION
That Planning Committee approve a Site Plan Control application for the construction of a new Planned Unit Development, as provided in Documents 5 and 6.
Planning Committee - 27 March 2018
Motion No. PLC 60/2
Moved by Councillor S. Blais
WHEREAS at the time of the original submission for 195 Meandering Brook Drive application, signal testing for the intersection of Meandering Brook Drive and Lester Road was at 89% of the warrant; and
WHEREAS since that time the residents of Deerfield Village continue to express concern with the new development and their ability to safely enter and exit their neighbourhood because the main access is an uncontrolled t-intersection off Lester Road (an 80km/h arterial); and
WHEREAS as part of the development application the City of Ottawa has recognized the importance of transit and is requiring the developer to construct a bus pad on the north side of Lester Road to accommodate the over 50 new riders OC Transpo has identified would result from this development; and
WHEREAS there is currently no safe pedestrian access to the south side of Lester Road and as a result no bus pad is being included for p.m. drop off as part of the development;
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT Planning Committee defer the vote on 195 Meandering Brook Drive until the April 24th meeting and direct Planning Staff to work with the developer and the ward Councillor during that time to explore any and all options to find solutions to the traffic and transit problems outlined above.
