Development and Transportation Issues
The mission of the SCA Development Committee is to monitor and, where necessary intervene in industrial, governmental and residential developments in the Stonebridge area that may affect our community, its residents and those of greater Barrhaven.
Mattamy Homes Update on Stonebridge Community:
Thank you everyone for your candid feedback at the Public Information Session last month. It’s clear to us many of you have questions and concerns about the proposed development and planning process. We at Mattamy are committed to developing thoughtful, inspired communities and are confident that we can ensure the Stonebridge community remains a great place to live.
We believe the best way to move forward is to withdraw our rezoning and plan of subdivision applications at this time. This will allow the proposed Working Group (Stonebridge residents, Councillors, City staff and Mattamy) to focus on working together to shape the future of Stonebridge without the distraction of the planning application process and timeline.
In the spirit of cooperation, we have collaborated with City of Ottawa Municipal Councillors and Officials who were in agreement with this approach as well as Jay McLean at the Stonebridge Community Association. We are all confident that this is the best approach and are looking forward to an open and productive exchange of ideas that can contribute to the process.
“Jay, thank you very much for your assistance in working with Mattamy. We are pleased to advise this evening that Mattamy Homes withdrew their application this afternoon. We look forward to continuing to work with you, community neighbours and Mattamy commencing with a facilitated session early in September. Let’s Talk!
Jan Harder and Scott Moffatt”
Thank you to all that have taken the time to communicate their opposition to our elected representatives and participated at the meetings!
The possibility of future development of the Stonebridge golf course is still very real, and we must continue to prepare for talks with the City and Mattamy representatives in early September.
An application to develop or reconfigure the golf course could come again at any time, therefore let’s continue to work together so that we are even stronger, united, and exceptionally well prepared to take on the next challenge coming our way.
Our Connect the Community campaign continues thanks to our devoted canvassers. Please also watch for our community-wide survey in coming days, as it is needed to obtain valuable information to support our future efforts.
Stay tuned! Let's stand together to protect the future of Stonebridge!
