On Wednesday, March 6, Councillor Glen Gower hosted an open house for residents to learn more about the proposed mixed-use development at 1531 Stittsville Main Street, just south of Orville. About 50 people attended the event at CARDELREC – Goulbourn (formerly the GRC). The proposal from Ottawa-based Huntington Properties, with architectural design by Project1 Studio includes a minor zoning change and a site plan control application.
The open house included a presentation from Alan Whitten of Huntington Properties, Brian Casagrande of FOTENN (Huntington’s planning consultant), and architect Ryan Koolwine. The presentation included updated design concepts for the development, and a Q&A presentation. Residents had questions about the design, construction, traffic, parking, and integration with the surrounding community. You can click here to download a copy of Huntington’s presentation, and a video of the Q&A session is posted below.
The next step in the process is a review of the proposal by the city’s Urban Design Review Panel on Friday, April 5 at 3:30pm City Hall. This meeting will be open to the public, and the resulting recommendations from the Panel will be posted on the City’s website.
