    We need your support

    At a time when community matters more than ever, we're at risk of closing our doors. Due to COVID-19, our beloved Firehall has been largely closed since March. Now, without more funding, we face shutting down for good. Please, donate to the Campaign to Save Our Firehall, and help us continue providing programming, serving our community, and bringing friends and neighbours together for many years to come.

 SAVE OUR FIREHALL

We are now “ringing the bell” and calling on all residents to help Save Our Firehall! We need your help to keep our community centre open. Restrictions due to COVID-19 have had a huge impact on our Firehall’s ability to sustain itself. To thrive, the Firehall relies on revenues from the programs it delivers. The City owns the Firehall and maintains it but doesn’t cover operational costs. If we are to make up the shortfall in operational costs, we need to fundraise. How can you help? You can help by pledging your financial support on a monthly basis. No amount is too small or too big. Every donation counts. Monthly pledges add up over time and with many families pledging their support we can make sure that our community centre remains open in 2021.

Plans for 1050-1060 Bank Street

A community meeting on the proposed development for 1050-1060 Bank Street was held on January 27, 2020 at the Firehall with almost 60 people in attendance. The development team addressed changes that were made to the design in response to resident comments made at the first Firehall meeting held in June 2019. They responded to questions and comments from residents on topics including materials, parking, the best entrance/exit street for the garage, height, and landscaping.

The application to the City is online and comments are requested by February 27, 2020.

Pay Heed: Reduced Speed Limit West of Bank!

Old Ottawa South west of Bank Street has hopefully become safer because of a municipal initiative which designates certain neighbourhoods as 30 km/hr gateway speed zones. This new speed limit reduces the previous default speed limit of 40 or 50 km/hr with a new default of 30 km/hr.
