Please see email below for information on the Boundary review.  

As you may be aware, I am one of the consultants for the Ottawa Ward Boundary Review 2020, a project that is meant to establish new ward boundaries for the City of Ottawa to use in the next three or four municipal elections. You are receiving this email because you signed up for project updates or are identified as a key stakeholder.

This email includes updates and information regarding:

  • The release of the Options Report, which includes five options for new ward boundaries

Additional information is provided below.

Release of the Options Report

During Round 1 of public consultation from March 4, 2020, to April 3, 2020, we collected input from the public, stakeholders and Members of Council regarding the City of Ottawa’s current ward boundaries and any desired changes. We heard many opinions and appreciate the input received!

Based on the input, as well as analysis of factors such as population trends and statutory and common law requirements, the consultant team prepared an Options Report that includes five options for new ward boundaries.

Today, the Options Report was released on the City’s website. The Options Report is being provided to the Finance and Economic Development Committee (FEDCO) and City Council for information. FEDCO and Council will receive the Options Report on July 7, 2020, and July 15, 2020, respectively.

 

Opportunities to participate in Round 2 of consultation

In early August, I will provide you with more details on how to get involved in Round 2 of public consultation, which will collect feedback on the five options for new ward boundaries.

Round 2 consultation opportunities will include various public and stakeholder meetings – either online or in person, depending on the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic at the time – as well as consultations with Members of Council, a survey and online discussion throughEngage.Ottawa. We would love to hear your thoughts!

Following the Round 2 consultation, the consultant team will prepare and bring forward a Final Report with recommendations to be considered by FEDCO and Council in late Q4 2020.

Thank you for your interest in this project. Please stay tuned for more information coming in early August about Round 2 public consultation opportunities.
