Springhurst Park playground construction to begin August 1

Construction is scheduled to begin on August 1 at Springhurst Park, located at 24 Brunswick Street. The work will begin with the removal and replacement of a retaining wall in the preschool play yard. As a result, the play yard will be closed while the wall is being replaced and once completed, the area will be inspected and re-opened to the public. Construction will then continue in the open area of the park north of the basketball courts and south of the t-ball net until the end of August.

A complete street for Main Street!

With only six councillors opposed, the Main Street Renewal proposal was approved on July 17 by Ottawa City Council.

The "complete street" design for Main Street will transform our community by reducing and slowing car traffic, providing safer and wider sidewalks for pedestrians, a safe cycle track for cyclists, and an improved streetscape for businesses and future development.

An outpouring of support for Main Street complete street design proposal

There has been an outpouring of support over the last week from local community groups in favour of the proposed "Complete Streets" design plan for the renewal of Main Street. You can read the support letters below:
