The National Capital Commission will hold two days of public consultations on the development of LeBreton Flats in January, it said Wednesday.

The consultations will be held at the Canadian War Museum Jan. 26-27, the NCC said at its first meeting since the federal election.

NCC CEO Mark Kristmanson said there will be chance for people to see the models and interact with the four groups vying to develop up to 21.6 hectares of land at the site. He said there will also be a written component and a question-and-answer session.

“We want to make sure everyone has a chance to participate,” he said, adding he is sure the proposals will attract “a lot of interest and passion.”

Online consultations will be accepted until Feb. 8 on the proposals.

Claridge Homes, Devcore Group, Focus Equities and RendezVous LeBreton Group have until Dec. 15 to submit their proposals. The December was an extension from the original November date and Mr. Kristmanson said there would be no more extensions.

The NCC also approved the new construction at 7 Clarence Street in the Byward Market, a structure that could be used as part of 2017 celebrations.

The commission also approved the design for the refurbished Canada Science and Technology Museum. The museum is expected to reopen Nov. 17, 2017.

    The proposal by the Ottawa Senators to develop the Lebreton flats looks great. It will put Ottawa on the map, and it will be a fantastic boon to the cultural and entertainment development of the downtown area, something that Ottawa surely needs.
