After a two-year hiatus, the Old Ottawa South Porch Sale is back! Saturday September 10th is the day to explore the neighbourhood looking for deals or to sell your stuff. The event runs from 8am to 3pm.
We want to welcome everyone back to Firehall and are opening up our patio at 260 Sunnyside Avenue this Saturday from 11am to 2pm for a BBQ and music.
We want to provide you with an update regarding our health and safety policies at OSCA.
Last September the OSCA Board made the decision that all participants in OSCA programs aged 12 and above must be fully vaccinated if they wished to register for an OSCA program. At the time, “fully vaccinated” meant having two doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccine.
We wish each and every one of you, the best of this festive season. And we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity, support and compassion.
A time to hope
We are delighted to report that this last quarter of 2021 has been promising. Our summer camps were very successful and youth programming continues to grow as restrictions ease. The Firehall is beginning to thrive once again!
Important: You must pre-register to receive Zoom invitation details and AGM materials. Details below.
OSCA’s Annual General Meeting is more than a legal requirement. The AGM has traditionally been a welcome opportunity to gather in the Firehall in the springtime as a community, hear what our Old Ottawa South Community Association has been doing for us over the preceding year, and share ideas for the coming year. OSCA’s AGM is among the many things disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. Once again, organizing OSCA’s traditional in-person AGM has been complicated by health guidelines, government regulations and practical considerations, all relating to Covid-19.
Old Ottawa South and other inner urban areas are slated to provide housing for many of the 400,000 new residents expected in Ottawa over the 25-year term of the new Official Plan. What will that look like? Where will we do it? How will we get there?
OSCA’s Planning and Zoning Committee (‘P&Z’) prepared a slide presentation about the City’s New Official Plan (‘OP’) and presented it in a Zoom meeting on September 27, 2021. You can view here the pdf OSCA P&Z Community Presentation 21 09 27 (5.99 MB) .
Your feedback is requested by October 13, 2021.
Registration is now open for a virtual community meeting at 7:00 pm on Monday, September 27, 2021 to discuss the impacts of the City of Ottawa's final Official Plan draft on Old Ottawa South. Register via OSCA programs to obtain the Zoom link.
As promised in late August, OSCA has been hard at work developing the details of our vaccination policy. We remain committed to doing everything possible to provide a safe environment for you and your family. Please take the time to read the following text, outlining OSCA’s evolving vaccination policy.
