Public Consultation: Plan for the North Shore of the Ottawa River
On November 25, the National Capital Commission (NCC) hosted a public consultation in the form of a workshop on the development of the Ottawa River north shore (Gatineau side) plan for the core sector, including Ruisseau de la Brasserie (Brewery Creek). Workshop participants shared their ideas about how the shoreline parks and green spaces could be used and managed. They engaged in a very dynamic and stimulating discussion. The following are the main ideas put forward during the workshop:
- Highlight the natural aspects and features of the lands.
- Improve access to the water with installations and activities on or near the water.
- Maintain and improve the continuity of public spaces with use of the pathways, as well as with use of the river for boating; create a “tour of the island” interpretive route.
- Promote historical interpretation of the area.
- Establish an overall theme for the lands, and create an outdoor museum.
The online questionnaire is open to the public until Friday, December 19. A consultation report will be posted after results have been collected.
A second public consultation will take place in June 2015, and a draft of the Ottawa River north shore improvement plan will be developed in winter 2015.
