Too many parcels of land outside the greenbelt are sitting vacant, prompting the city to hire a consultant to conduct a review of the properties zoned for employment.

The city had a policy of maintaining a rate of 1.3 jobs per household, but that practice didn’t always extend to neighbourhoods such as Barrhaven, Riverside South and Orléans.
