Steady As She Goes At Planning, New Czar Says


Ottawa Construction News interviewed Stephen Willis, the new manager of planning at the City of Ottawa.

It appears from Willis’ comments that it will be business as usual on his watch. He wants to speed planning processes but that doesn’t account for radical change:

“With planning approvals, the department’s been doing a lot of really good work in the last couple of years that I want to continue, which includes streamlining the planning approvals process. We’re going to be doing a review of the site plan approval process in the next year. We’ve also just completed an infrastructure standards review, which both found savings for us, in terms of long-term operations and maintenance of infrastructure, and also it saves in the construction of new homes, where our standards have been adjusted.”
