Passed    Motion To: WHEREAS it is required by the Ontario Planning Act that the Official Plan be regularly updated to ensure that the plan implements any changes to the Provincial Policy Statement or provincial plans; and WHEREAS an official plan update provides an opportunity to ensure the official plan continues to address local priorities and changing community needs; and WHEREAS an update is required to be completed ten years after a municipality prepares a new comprehensive official plan or every five years where the comprehensive review is to up-date an existing official plan through an amendment to the plan; and WHEREAS the current policy framework in the Official Plan reflects an approach to growth management that has been in effect since amalgamation, almost fifteen years; and WHEREAS the last official plan review was completed in 2013 as a comprehensive review to up-date the official plan requiring the next review to be initiated in 2018; and WHEREAS changes to the Planning Act allow a new Official Plan to have a longer implementation and review period (10 years) than the traditional five-year review cycle for an updated plan; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Planning Committee recommend to Council that: 1. Planning, Infrastructure, and Economic Development staff begin a Comprehensive Review of the Official Plan under the Provincial Policy Statement and a conformity review under Section 26 of the Planning Act for purposes of developing a new Official Plan for the City; and 2. That staff bring forward the findings of Ottawa Next: Beyond 2036 study, as directed by Motion PLC 36/7, a detailed work plan and budget for the Official Plan review at the first Planning Committee meeting of the next term of Council.
