    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.

Winter Maintenance Survey

Winter Maintenance Survey

Capital Ward office has put together a survey to help inform the city's long overdue review (last updated in 2003!) of winter maintenance quality standards (underway now).

The survey focuses on the pedestrian and cyclist winter experience, and it will, along with a subsequent report on the results, supplement the first report on snow clearance and winter maintenance released in early 2020 following a Community Information Session on Snow Clearance in 2019.

Extension for the 15-minute Neighbourhood Survey

Extension for the 15-minute Neighbourhood Survey

The deadline for participating in the City's 15-minute neighbourhood survey has been extended to September 15, 2020. If you haven’t yet had a chance to take the survey, please take a few minutes and do so.

The City survey questions deal with the 15-minute neighbourhood, one of the core concepts for the new Official Plan and asks residents to prioritize the importance of things like schools, clinics, parks and transit. It takes more than access to services to make a neighbourhood a viable, livable 15-minute community though.

Windsor Park Fieldhouse.

A New Fieldhouse for Windsor Park

The quest to design a brand new fieldhouse in Windsor Park continues despite the citywide COVID lockdown. The working group struck by the OSCA Board to engage all stakeholders and find a solution carries on with its mission. Our earlier consultations with the community revealed some of your most pressing needs, while our outreach to specific groups—including a targeted survey of residents bordering the park—gave a clearer picture of what is wanted. Now we have created a portal on the OSCA website that allows Old Ottawa South residents a continued opportunity to give us your feedback.
