After months of community pushback, an Ottawa car dealership has parked its plan to expand into a nearby forest.
Otto's BMW had requested to extend its parking lot over approximately 1.57 hectares of the nearby forest at 400 Hunt Club Rd. because the dealership was dealing with space issues, and needs more room to store and park cars.
The dealership has now voluntarily paused its zoning bylaw amendment application, which was set to go before Ottawa city council on Sept. 9, as it assesses other options.
