The City of Ottawa is laying the foundation for a new official plan and is seeking input. There's a series of discussion papers about important issues and an online survey for giving feedback.
On Friday, November 13, 2015, Brian Mitchell, Chair of the Glebe Community Association Traffic Committee, presented the results of the Lansdowne Impact Survey to the Lansdowne Transportation Management Committee (LTMOC). What follows is a summary of his presentation.
Response to the survey during the month of October was steady and strong. By the closing date there were:
With the first summer of activity at the fully redeveloped Lansdowne behind us, the OSCA Traffic Committee is looking for feedback on how the community is using the new Lansdowne and on its impact on traffic (including pedestrian, cycling and transit matters), particularly day-to-day activities at Lansdowne but large events also.
Last chance to complete this traffic survey! The survey will remain open until October 31, 2015.
On Tuesday, September 17, 2013, OSCA endorsed recommendations from the OOS Traffic Survey launched online in June 2013. The survey was initiated in response to traffic management issues raised at the Lansdowne Transportation Advisory Committee (LTAC), chaired by Councilor David Chernushenko.
The OOS Traffic Survey acts as a bridge between two official City of Ottawa studies, one completed in 2012 west of Bank Street, the other initiated in May 2013 east of Bank encompassing Riverdale Avenue & Area including Sunnyside Avenue east of Bank (results expected late 2013 or early 2014).
Thank you Old Ottawa South! Your response to this community’s Traffic Survey has been outstanding!
Deadline for the survey was Friday, June 21, 2013. Since then a review team has been formed, a process established, and a deadline for draft recommendations set for early September. It’s a big job: total number of responses to the survey is 626 with 285 comments. The narrative component is significant and it’s important that we give this element of the survey the attention it deserves. Each comment will be reviewed.
In the meantime, we will be working with City officials to share certain elements of the survey to make sure that they are submitted in a timely manner to official parallel processes. For example, the survey includes responses & comments that directly affect the City’s Riverdale Traffic Study. These will be shared with the City this summer to ensure their consideration under their established community consultation process for traffic studies.
Come September, more detailed data, analysis, and recommendations will be available in the OSCAR & online. So stay tuned.
In the meantime, we would like to share with you some of the following results:
