SUBJECT: Revision to Cardinal Creek Village Concept Plan
OBJET: Révision au Plan conceptuel du village de Cardinal Creek
That Planning Committee recommend that Council approve the revised Land Use Plan contained within the Cardinal Creek Village Concept Plan, as shown in Document 2.
RECOMMANDATION DU RAPPORT
Que le Comité de l’urbanisme recommande au Conseil d’approuver le Plan d’utilisation du sol révisé compris dans le Plan conceptuel du village de Cardinal Creek, comme il est indiqué dans le document 2.
Cardinal Creek Village is a developing community at the extreme eastern limit of the City’s urban area within Orléans. Generally, it extends from Highway 174 at its northern limit to the south side of Old Montreal Road, and from Cardinal Creek eastward to the limit of the urban area at Frank Kenny Road and Ted Kelly Lane, as shown on Document 1. The lands are currently in the early stages of subdivision development on the north side of Old Montreal Road to implement the Council-approved Concept Plan.
The Cardinal Creek Village Concept Plan was approved in 2013. A plan of subdivision application was subsequently filed consistent with the Concept Plan. Upon circulation and review of the draft plan of subdivision, the four school boards provided their respective comments, conditions, land area requirement and preferred school block location. The draft plan of subdivision subsequently was approved on February 27, 2014. However, as a result of concerns with such school block locations and associated draft plan conditions, the applicant appealed the approved draft plan of subdivision and conditions to the Ontario Municipal Board. While the approved school block locations generally conformed to the Concept Plan’s Land Use Plan, it was the applicant’s contention that the physical characteristics and location of one of the school blocks was inappropriate for the intended institutional use.
In the mutual interest of avoiding a prolonged Ontario Municipal Board hearing, staff and the appellant, with the concurrence of the affected school boards, have agreed to remove the school site in question from the draft plan of subdivision and relocate it south of Old Montreal Road to a future phase of development within the Concept Plan lands. Revisions are to be made to both the draft approved plan of subdivision and the conditions of approval to reflect changes to the affected school block location and the school boards’ respective conditions of approval.
The changes to the draft plan of subdivision described above, in turn, necessitate that the Concept Plan’s Land Use Plan be revised to reflect the change in the location of school blocks; such changes to the Land Use Plan require the approval of Planning Committee and Council, which is the purpose of this report.
With all parties involved having agreed to the relocation of the school site, the applicant prepared a revised Concept Plan. The revised Concept Plan is illustrated in Document 2; the current Concept Plan is provided in Document 3 for comparison purposes.
The revised Concept Plan affects the location of two school sites. The two school sites to be relocated are the elementary schools for Le Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario (CEPEO) and the Ottawa Carleton District School Board (OCDSB). The OCDSB site was originally situated north of and adjacent to Old Montreal Road within the limits of the approved draft plan of subdivision; the grading of the site was deemed too challenging to accommodate a school and its outdoor programmed space. The CEPEO site was originally situated south of Old Montreal Road adjacent to Frank Kenny Road in one of the future phases of the Concept Plan. However, CEPEO has indicated that their time frame for the need for the school is sooner than the developer’s projected construction schedule for that future phase. Therefore, both school sites are now relocated south of Old Montreal Road with the OCDSB site situated at the corner of the future planned minor collector road and the CEPEO site situated south of the main collector road. In order to accommodate the schools in this area, the planned storm pond will be shifted westerly and will abut the CEPEO site; the adjacent designated Arterial Main Street ‘B’ lands will be reconfigured accordingly. The OCDSB site will now abut a planned neighbourhood park, which is in line with the principles of the Building Better Smarter Suburbs initiative.
The above-described revisions to the Land Use Plan present no concerns from a community planning perspective. The revisions are consistent with the guiding principles of the Concept Plan and continue to respect the appropriate number, size and location of school sites with minimal impact on community design, the potential future transit corridor and the dwelling unit projections and housing mix.
The outstanding appeals to the approved draft plan of subdivision and conditions are expected to be formally resolved during an upcoming OMB prehearing once the revised Concept Plan Land Use Plan has received Committee’s and Council’s approval. Staff have agreed to revise the draft approved conditions to incorporate each school boards’ respective conditions of draft approval to address their own specific site concerns; the current draft approved condition respecting the school sites is stated simply in general terms. The former school site within the limits of the draft plan of subdivision will become a residential block.
There are no rural implications associated with this report.
The Cardinal Creek Village Concept Plan requires major changes to be approved by Planning Committee and Council. No public consultation was required. Consultations were held with the four school boards to confirm the acceptability of the revised locations of the school blocks; all four boards have agreed to the revised Concept Plan Land Use Plan.
