UPDATE: Carp Road Corridor development planning 12 industrial lots

UPDATE: This item was removed from the Agriculture and Rural Affairs committee agenda for the June 4 meeting, Coun. Eli El-Chantiry’s office confirmed to West Carleton Online in an email today (May 28). The public meeting will be added to a future ARAC meeting, but which meeting has not been confirmed at this time.

CARP – The Agriculture and Rural Affairs committee (ARAC) June 4 virtual meeting will also serve as a public meeting to discuss an industrial development project planned within the Carp Road Corridor.

The meeting is the statutory public meeting for the Plan of Subdivision and Common Elements Condominium applications for 3119 Carp Rd. This public meeting is being done in this manner because of the physical distancing restrictions due to COVID-19.

The property lies within the Carp Road Corridor immediately south of the Carp Airport and is designated as part of the Rural Employment Lands within the city’s Official Plan. The property is owned by Greg and Sallie Storey.

The application for subdivision is to allow for the creation of 12 industrial lots for commercial/industrial purposes ranging in size from 0.8 hectares to 2.2 hectares. The Common Elements Condominium would see the creation of two private roads and related drainage form the common elements.

“The subject site is currently vacant,” city staff wrote in the application summary. “It is surrounded by agricultural uses and mineral extraction operations. A private road divides the subject site from the Carp Airport, located to the north of the subject site. A low-rise residential neighbourhood exists further south of the site. The site is zoned Rural Commercial, Subzone 9, which permits for light industrial uses and offices. Retail stores are permitted and are limited to the sale of goods which are intended for use by the rural community.”

For more details on these applications, please visit the City’s Development Applications site. For information on how to participate in the public meeting, please contact the file lead at Cheryl.McWilliams@ottawa.ca.

The public meeting, as mentioned, will be part of the regular ARAC meeting scheduled for 10 a.m. on June 4. If you would like to view the meeting, you can do so  via the city’s YouTube channel.
