Huge BOX STORE Commercial development proposed along the Ottawa River

Tuesday, June 25, 2013 - 9:30am to 5:00pm

Please read the attached Tamarack Proposal for the Cardinal Creek Village Official Plan Amendment Proposal, there are things in it you may like to know..

The proposal will go before Planning Committee on June 25th at 9:30 in the Champlain Room, City Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West. 


  •  "The Arterial Mainstreet 'A' designation along Ottawa Road 174 is intended primarily for a wide range of commercial uses in recognition of the high volume of traffic along this significant commuter highwayThe range of uses may include large- format retail, convenience and personal service retail, and office and institutional uses; however, higher density residential uses, including above ground-oriented retail or office uses, are to be encouraged in this mixed use area."
  • "The Arterial Mainstreet areas illustrated on the land use plan on either side of the proposed intersection of the north-south major collector road and OR 174 are intended to accommodate a mix of residential and retail land uses to serve the personal and commercial needs of the Cardinal Creek Village community and inter-urban commuters."
  • "To serve these large commercial blocks from a traffic perspective, consideration has been given to two proposed restricted right-in/right-out accesses to and from OR 174." This clearly targets residents outside of the city. Why is Cardinal Creek Village building box stores on the river for Clarence Rockland? 
  • Proposal suggests 6 lanes required to accomodate traffic.
