The Ottawa Journal. 13 : Region's draft official plan battered in all-day neariris 'Saturday; February 9,' 1974 By RON CUNGEN ' Journal Reporter Public input into creation of an official plan' for Ottawa-Carleton continues today with at least 20 groups slated to appear before the region's planning' committee. The draft version of the plan was assaulted from all sides Friday as 29 briefs were outlined during almost 12 hours of public hearings in the region's Capitol Square headquarters, i,' March Township council, In a 26-page document, insisted : the western urban community pinpointed in the draft plan for development -around Ka-nata should have a maximum population of about 100,000. And Cumberland Township, s on the region's far eastern boundaries, complained the official plan does not make provision for what the township believes to be its fair share' of industrial and commercial' development. , . ' Officials contend the recommended limitation on industrial development might , discourage industries, from locating in Cumberland and thus deprive residents .. of . needed emoiovment v While the draft plan proposes a small, J20.000 square-foot shopping centre for the township,) Cumberland council adamantly believes the growing population could support a shopping centre . five times larger. t J" . V The brief argues there is no reason .residents .should be. fored to drive into Ottawa to do the bulk of .their shopping, as they would be forced to do if commercial growth is rigid- , ly controlled. The committee listened nhile George Wilkes, president of the Sandy Hill "Community Development Corpo-: ration, proposed creation of a -. citizens advisory council to advise regional council on Im- plementation of the official plan and to act as an agency ' of regional council "in fostering research in areas relevant to implementing the plan." And Mr. Wilkes suggested regional council should promote greater landlord participation in the Ontario Housing Corporation's rent supplement programs in an effort to im- - prove . integration of public housing within communities. The Sandy Hill group recommended a greater empha- . sis on community participation in planning, creating and operating community health and social development centres. ' , ' V .. The Citizens Committee for Planning in Sandy Hill continued its running attack on road construction with chairman Georges A. Bedard stressing the group's position that "no arterial roads be built without first having a system of rapid transit established.' ' . And, he said, the committee : takeaya "very dim view" of suggestions that arterial roads be located along Somerset Street or on the north-south King Edward-Henderson Avenue route. : ,. Most imaginative of the Fri-: 1 day presentations came from Poirier to dean's post at Algonquin "The appointment of Lionel Poirier to the post of Dean of Applied Arts of Algonquin College was announced Friday by Harold Thayer, Chairman of the board of Governors.

March Township council .and the March Township planning committee. - ,' Councillor-Marianne Wilkin--son, chairman of the township planning committee, ex- plained that both March council and her committee agree the proposed western urban community , and its 100,000 people should be surrounded by a green belt similar to the National Capital Commission Green Belt around Greater Ottawa. " ' 1 ,- The brief recommended the new western community -should be built around a town centre comprised of about 15,-000 people - with government office buildings and about 35,000 Jobs. That town centre, they, envision, ,6hould be designed to. eliminate the automobile as much as - possible. - Parking ' : would be on the periphery and visually hidden. ' March believes regional government should pressure the Ontario, department of transportation and.: communications to depress the. Queensway through the town . centre so the western coramu-' nity can be - easily linked across and over the Queens-way, rather than split in two by it , , The report recommends the western community be broken , into five districts in the vicinity of Kanata. ' One called Beaverbrook would have a maximum population of 10,000. Kitimavik would have ,up to 17,000, Matchwood would have ' as -many as 15,000, as would the town centre Another commu-; nity, to be called Lakeside, possibly would be developed at a later date. . Councillor Wilkinson said . the price of land in March -Township has soared beyond what anyone could afford for farmland and proposed ef-foprts be made to encourage practising farmers through subsidies, .The committee also feels agricultural land should be protected by buffer zones. ! '. The- Campeau Corporation 1 part of the giant corporation which owns the Kanata development presented" similar, views to'those of the township on development of . - the western community.- ' Campeau alsoi presented ' preliminary plans for creation s of a regional shopping centre, r as designated in the draft offi-" cial plan, in the South Keys nine then build en that baseV area on-the west side of Bank v said council of women repre- .
