City staff have advised the OECA that the OLRT Confederation Line Memorandum of Understanding between the City of Ottawa and the University of Ottawa has been amended and the replacement parking lot is no longer proposed at 160 Lees Avenue. The new proposed location is 193 Lees Avenue, a city owned property (an untravelled road allowance) adjacent to 200 Lees Avenue (part of the university’s Lees Campus). To view the city’s development application for 193 Lees Avenue, go to the city’s development application search tool aand enter the following application #: D02-02-13-0009.
Thank you to everyone in the community for their outstanding efforts to save the greenspace at 160 Lees Avenue. The community’s successful battle against the parking lot on the greenspace was led by Christine Loth-Bown, pictured here with her son Noah.
