Thank you for your continued interest in the redevelopment of RioCan’s Elmvale Acres Shopping Centre, located at 1910 St Laurent Boulevard. Late last year, a preliminary long-term proposal for the site was circulated, looking for modifications to the existing commercial footprint and the addition of mixed-use buildings, receiving significant feedback and interest from the community.
A Secondary Plan process is being carried out for the site, a sub-plan of the City’s Official Plan, which will outline appropriate opportunities and constraints of redevelopment. The City’s website has published a dedicated page for your reference during this process: http://ottawa.ca/en/city-hall/public-consultations/planning-and-infrastructure/elmvale-acres-shopping-centre. Please follow this link for additional history, feedback summaries, timelines, and to learn how you can participate.
A key step in the Secondary Plan process is a Community Visioning consultation which has been scheduled as follows:

I will connect with you periodically throughout this secondary planning process and beyond, as important dates and information becomes available.
