Next City of Ottawa Planning Primer session for residents - September 13 or 15

The Planning and Growth Management Department offers the Planning Primer Program to help residents become more aware of, and more involved in, the land-use planning process. The program is a series of half-day courses. Please see the city's website for a schedule of other Primer courses and descriptions.

To make the most of the information being presented, residents must attend the Primer I course before attending Primer II and attend both the Primer I and II courses before attending an elective course. The content of these Primer courses is the same as those offered in previous years. The courses are offered in English only.

The excitement of major events happening just across the canal from Old Ottawa East has been tempered by concerns that fans may use our community for parking spots.

The city has posted a survey form on its website that you can use to record your concerns, or compliments. Click here for the english survey, and here for the french survey. If you feel you were affected by traffic and parking, please complete the survey, and let your community association representative know as well at ron.rose@gmail.com.
