The Ottawa River shorelines are among the defining features of Canada’s Capital region. The National Capital Commission is currently in the process of finalizing its Ottawa River North Shore Parklands Plan and is inviting the public to provide comments and feedback on the draft plan.
The online survey is open between July 6 to 24, 2017. Your comments will inform the final plan, which will be presented to the NCC Board of Directors in fall 2017.
The plan describes the characteristics of the sites, their environment, history and significance for the Capital. It identifies acceptable uses for each location, as well as the level of intensity of activities that could take place at each site. The area targeted in the plan includes the following:
- Federal lands between Jacques-Cartier Park North and Ruisseau de la Brasserie (Brewery Creek) in Gatineau;
- Both ends of Brewery Creek, given the physical connection with the lands on the river shoreline.
The NCC held previous public consultations on plan concepts in November 2014 and June 2015.
