  • Please RSVP: pop-up Pedestrian Crossover in Bayshore on Woodridge Crescent (Friday, Sept. 28th); it is going to be great! #ottnews #ottcity #ottwalk #ottwalk http://healthytransportationcoalition.nationbuilder.com/pop_up_pedestrian_crossover_in_bayshore?recruiter_id=913

    pop-up Pedestrian Crossover in Bayshore

    Members of the Healthy Transportation Coalition have partnered with Bayshore residents, City Councillor Mark Taylor, and Ottawa's traffic services department on a pop-up Pedestrian Crossover to create a safe crossing for pedestrians traveling to and from the Bayshore Transitway Station.

    Working with engineering students from the University of Ottawa our pop-up will create a safe crossing for 12 hours so that parents crossing the road with their kids, the elderly, and all people in the area crossing Woodridge Crescent will have a safe place to get across the road.

    Attend this event to demonstrate to the City that this important pedestrian safety improvement is needed permanently. If at least 100 people use the crossover between 6:30am and 6:30pm, we hope to convince the City that this safety improvement is needed now. The City currently has plans to add a safe crossing here by 2023, but residents want it made permanent much sooner.

    Agenda:

    6:30am -- the pop-up pedestrian crossover goes 'live'

    10:30am -- speeches by residents, the Healthy Transportation Coalition, and Deputy Mayor Mark Taylor

    6:30pm -- the equipment is removed

    The City produced this road safety video about Pedestrian Crossovers if you would like to learn more.

  • Ive just signed the petition calling on @ottawacity to prioritize building Affordable Housing Near Rapid Transit, and I urge all my friends, family, colleagues, strangers to do that same, please http://healthytransportationcoalition.nationbuilder.com/housing_and_transit?recruiter_id=913

    Housing and Transit

    Petition for Affordable Housing Near Rapid Transit

    To:       Ottawa City Council, 110 Laurier Avenue West, Ottawa, ON, K1P 1J1

    More than 40,000 families in Ottawa do not have housing they can afford. National trends indicate that housing costs increase near rapid transit hubs. The City’s plan to expand the Light Rail Transit system causes concern for an increase in housing costs where modest income populations are at a disadvantage. Affordable, inclusive, and equitable Transit-Oriented Development is needed to foster safe and healthy communities, people, and a strong economy.

    GOAL: 21 signatures

    I/We the undersigned, petition Ottawa City Council to:

    1) Pass a strong citywide inclusionary zoning by-law that ensures 25% of new development is dedicated to affordable housing and places a special emphasis on deeply affordable housing within 1 km of rapid transit stations;

    2) Ensure that all available government-owned land within 1 km of current & future rapid transit stations is used for non-profit and co-op housing;

    3) Create a 2019-2022 Term of Council Priority that integrates transit and planning, with clear, affordable housing targets; and

    4) Commit at least $12 million/year of City funding, over and above federal and provincial grants, to build new affordable housing

    By signing this petition, I hereby acknowledge that this petition will become a public document at the City of Ottawa and that all information contained in it will be subject to the scrutiny of the City, and will be publicly available. Questions about the collection and disclosure of personal information contained in this petition should be directed to the City Clerk, 110 Laurier Avenue, Ottawa, Ontario, K1P 1J1.

    The campaign for Affordable Housing Near Rapid Transit has been endorsed by the following organizations:

    City for All Women Initiative, Coalition of Community Health & Resource Centres of Ottawa, Healthy Transportation Coalition, Making Voices Count, Ottawa ACORN.
