ByWard Market Public Realm Plan

City Council unanimously approved the ByWard Market Public Realm Plan on January 27, 2021, which is a document to guide the evolution of the Market’s public spaces and provides a framework to coordinate investment opportunities.

The plan will ensure the ByWard Market remains a unique, pedestrian friendly destination in Ottawa. The report recommends strategic advancement of priority projects, establishing a working group to lead economic recovery in the market in 2021 and a review of district governance options.

The Public Realm Plan is supported by several documents under separate cover, including technical memoranda for transportation and utilities; a Lighting Design Master Plan; a Public Life Study and public consultation reports produced over a two-year planning process.
