Active Transportation Plan cycling-focused Q&A session
May 11 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Ward 5, we want to hear from you! City of Ottawa staff are in the process of updating the Active Transportation Plan which will combine the current Ottawa Pedestrian Plan and the Ottawa Cycling Plan into one. Staff are in the process of identifying missing links in our Active Transportation Network and are planning the work to be done over the next 10 years.
I have been asked to prioritize some of the missing links in our cycling and pedestrian network and I’d like to hear from you! I am looking for your help in identifying missing links (gaps or barriers) in our Ward’s walking and cycling network. Your feedback will help staff identify possible cycling and pedestrian projects in Ward 5. If there is an area within the ward that you feel could be addressed or use improvement, please let me know. Comments and suggestions can be sent to Ward5@ottawa.ca and we will collect all comments until April 30, 2021.
On Tuesday, May 11 from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m., my west-end colleagues and I will be hosting a cycling focused Q&A Session via Zoom. (CLICK HERE for the Zoom link for this meeting). This session, along with my colleagues Councillors Sudds, Gower and Hubley, will include City Planners who will answer some of the comments/questions that you’ve sent in, and will discuss some of the missing links that are on the list for completion in the coming years.
I have included a map of the Cycling Network in West Carleton, with the purple lines showing existing cycling facilities and the red lines showing in-progress cycling facilities that are projects currently underway or starting soon. I have also included a map where by consultation through Engage Ottawa, some residents have already ‘dropped pins’ and identified missing links within our community. This opportunity to provide feedback and ask questions should be used to address or suggest areas for improvement and/or new projects. Please note this initiative is not to point out maintenance issues such as potholes and/or road work that needs to be done.
