706 March Road: Zoning By-Law Amendment Proposal

The City of Ottawa has received a proposal from an applicant for a Zoning By-Law Amendment on the property at 706 March Road. This Zoning By-law Amendment application is to facilitate the development of a large format retail food store, a multi-tenant commercial building, and a drive-through restaurant on the site. 

This property was previously owned for many years by Algonquin College; however, their plans to develop it never materializedWithin the last couple of years, the property was sold. 

The owner has submitted a proposal to rezone the site from General Mixed Use Zone (GM[220]) and Local Commercial Zone (LC7[1516]) to General Mixed Use Zone (GM). 

You can find more information on this proposal on the city’s DevApp site.

I will be working with staff to go over the details of this proposal and provide my feedback. I encourage our community to contact the Planners on the file if you have concerns or questions.  Your submissions will be put on record as well. The Planners on file are: 

Lisa Stern: Lisa.Stern@ottawa.ca  

Kathy Rygus: Kathy.Rygus@ottawa.ca 

I will be hosting a Virtual Public Consultation meeting on February 10 for our community regarding this application. The meeting will be streamed live on my website and social channels.
