What is Planning Primer?
The City of Ottawa is offering the Planning Primer Program to help residents become more aware of, and more involved in, the land-use planning process. The program is a series of half-day courses. The series includes two core courses and an elective. The core courses, called Primer I and Primer II, describe the legislative and policy basis under which land-use planning decisions are made, the way policy documents are amended and how to make a development application.
Who is invited to attend? All members of the public including developers, real estate agents, lawyers, builders and community representatives are invited to attend.
