Infill numbers are in for Kitchissippi

By Melissa Murray, Ottawa Community News, October 31, 2017

When city staff responded to Kitchissippi Coun. Jeff Leiper’s request for infill statistics, the numbers surprised him.Using approvals for minor variances and severances, the numbers show that since 2012 Leiper’s ward has 42 per cent of the urban area’s applications.

“I’ve had a feeling since the beginning of this term of council the level of infill activity was high in this ward compared to others, but I hadn’t realized that in some years it was almost the equivalent of our other urban wards combined,” Leiper said. “It was surprising to me.”

(...)There are five new LRT stations planned for the area, there are walkable mainstreets and the ward is full of modest-sized homes on relatively large lots, he added.
