Passed    Motion To: That the Planning Committee approve the addition of the following item for consideration by the committee at today’s meeting, pursuant to section 89. (3) of Procedure By-law 2016-377, in order to allow for timely discussion. WHEREAS the City views the new Ottawa Hospital Civic campus as essential community service and a very important city-building project; and WHEREAS the National Capital Commission (NCC) recently amended the federal land use planning framework to permit a hospital on federal lands on the south side of Carling Avenue at the north east corner of the Central Experimental Farm after an extensive process of public engagement and a federal decision to offer the site; and WHEREAS the City provided input through the federal process with respect to the Ottawa Hospital’s new site, providing information on the applicable plans and policies, municipal sewer and water servicing information, transportation capacity and environmental and heritage information; and WHEREAS there is a need for the City to bring its Official Plan and Zoning By-law into alignment with the federal land use decision; and WHEREAS there are 5 different zones that apply to the site: one that already permits a hospital and two further zones permitting development, but not a hospital, (all three together comprising 67% of the lands designated for a hospital by the federal government); THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Committee direct staff to bring forward a City-initiated Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law Amendment to bring the City’s planning documents into alignment with the federal land use decision.
