The City’s Planning Committee today approved commercial and residential zoning amendments in Stittsville.
Once it is confirmed that the existing infrastructure has the capacity to support new development, the Poole Creek Village subdivision could grow by three residential lots. The currently vacant land was previously in a floodplain, where development is not permitted. The Poole Creek floodplain was updated in 2016, making the land available for development.
A grocery store, two retail stores and a restaurant could be coming to 5960 Fernbank Road, once water services are extended to the currently vacant site. The zoning would also permit other commercial and residential uses.
The Committee also approved a zoning amendment in Kitchissippi, to permit two four-unit apartments buildings on Byron Avenue. Each property already houses a three-unit dwelling. The fourth unit would be added to the basement of each building.
Items approved at today’s Planning Committee will go to City Council on Wednesday, October 25.
