Lansdowne Transportation Monitoring and Operations Committee Community Report 2016

Introduction

The OSCA Traffic and Safety Committee has been representing Old Ottawa South at the Lansdowne Transportation Monitoring and Operations Committee (LTMOC) for a little over two years.  Each spring LTMOC presents its Annual Report to the Transportation Committee at City Hall.  The community groups and associations participating at LTMOC meetings also develop community reports and these are included with LTMOC’s Annual Report.

When LTMOC’s Annual Report is presented to the City’s Transportation Committee, the communities also have an opportunity to present in person their summations of the year’s activities and to respond to questions from the Transportation Committee.

Early in March, OSCA’s 2016 Community Report was submitted to LTMOC and can be read in its entirety here at www.oldottawasouth.ca.

Traffic Updates March 2014: Some Modest Movement from City Hall or the Giant Slowly Stirs

sunnyside-at-bankThe week of March 3rd at City Hall proved to be both interesting and revealing.  As promised in last month’s column on Traffic Updates representatives from Old Ottawa South (OOS), the Glebe Community Association (GCA) and Old Ottawa East (OOE) met with Mayor Jim Watson and made presentations to the City’s Transportation Committee chaired by Councillor Keith Egli (Knoxdale-Merivale Ward, Nepean).

The Mayor’s Boardroom is located in the heritage wing of City Hall (Ottawa’s former Teachers’ College built in 1874) and comfortably seats about 12 people around an impressive, rectangular, oak table located in the centre of a rather large, high-ceiling room reminiscent of medieval halls that once dotted the British countryside centuries ago.
