Starting in 2024, Ottawa will open four new light rail transit (LRT) stations: Jeanne d’Arc, Convent Glen, Place d’Orléans and Trim.
In the years ahead, we expect new communities to grow around those stations, transforming properties along the rail corridor as taller buildings and mixed-use neighbourhoods replace parking lots and low-rise commercial areas.
In the coming months, we will need your input in our review of the Orléans LRT Corridor. We want to ensure future development results in livable, resilient, desirable neighbourhoods that support transit and provide the highest quality of life possible. Once our study is completed, it will include plans for the development of lands surrounding the four new LRT stations and provide recommended improvements to pedestrian, cycling and transit connections throughout Orléans.
This project aims to replace two existing secondary plans in the Orléans Town Centre with new policies in the City’s Official Plan, as well as corresponding zoning amendments.
Last week, I outlined my thoughts on the topic in a special newsletter.
