The City of Ottawa will appeal…

The KGPC is very pleased to report that City legal staff are recommending to City Council an appeal of the October 13, 2023 Labrosse decision on the 40% Agreement (40PA).   Due to the budget implications of this additional legal action, consideration and approval by City Council will be required. 

The Kanata Greenspace Protection Coalition (KGPC) is very pleased to report that City legal staff are recommending to City Council an appeal of the October 13, 2023 Labrosse decision on the 40% Agreement (40PA).   Due to the budget implications of this additional legal action, consideration and approval by City Council will be required.   We are hopeful approval will follow given the serious stormwater management (SWM) implications and risks to the City associated with this proposed development.  Nonetheless, we are very pleased to understand the City’s commitment to the problem we face in Kanata North – high risk low reward development applications.  We also want to take the opportunity to thank our Councillor Cathy Curry.  Her unyielding support of the KGPC and our efforts on behalf of the community will prove essential to any success we have.  We truly value and appreciate her and we hope you do too.

The KGPC met quickly last evening to discuss the 40PA decision and begin the analysis of the options open to us with the news of a City appeal.   A final decision on next steps cannot occur until we fully understand the City’s position in defence of the 40PA.   Given that the City is wasting little time, we expect to have that information in the next week or two.  Only at that point will the KGPC be able to fully consider all of our options and bring our decision and a plan to you, our supporters.   We will do that at a Town Hall at a date and place to be determined in the coming weeks.   We will look to the community and our supporters to help us determine our next steps.

We are better together!   Stay with us!
