Official Plan Open House

After 16 years, the City of Ottawa is working on drafting a new Official Plan. The Official Plan provides a vision for the future growth of the city and a policy framework to guide the city’s physical development. I want to be sure that Innes ward residents have the opportunity to seek information, ask questions and provide input to City staff.

With that in mind, I have organized an Official Plan open house. Please join me in this engaging event that is part of a historic milestone for our city:

Thursday, October 17, 5 – 7 pm
190 Glen Park Drive

Community Townhall

Champagne Park Grand Opening

Have your say about rink chalets proposed for Bradley Ridge and Patrick Dugas parks

Thanks to the wonderful work of our community’s volunteers, the outdoor rinks at Bradley Ridge Park and Patrick Dugas Park have been incredible community assets.

Councillor Laura Dudas would like to support the work that is being done by providing funding from her Cash-in-Lieu of Parkland fund to provide skate changing and storage shelters for one or both parks.

These shelters are currently being used at a few parks in other areas of the city. If installed in our parks, they would be maintained and operated by the city, and they are durable and multi-purpose.

Community input it essential and the Councillor is seeking your feedback on these proposed shelters.

You can provide feedback by attending the following pop-up events:

Bradley Ridge Park
Saturday June 15, 2019
noon – 1 p.m.
221 Radhika Ct.

Patrick Dugas Park
Thursday June 20, 2019
