Another major infrastructure project has begun along the Rideau Canal: Parks Canada’s rehabilitation of the 262 metre section of the Canal wall running from the Concord Street North to Main Street in Old Ottawa East.
This project is part of the $15 million investment into Rideau Canal wall repairs, stemming from a $3.2 billion nation-wide program to maintain assets within national parks and historic sites, and is similar in nature to the wall rebuild done over the last few years on both sides of the Canal near Bank Street.
Why did I nominate Old Ottawa South as a "Great Neighbourhood" in the Great Places in Canada contest for the Canadian Institute of Planners? (Vote here until Feb. 29, 2012.) You can vote every hour or so, so please do! Vote for Brewer Oval and March Highlands, too--they are not in competition with each other.
In addition to my personal conviction that Old Ottawa South (OOS) is indeed "a great Canadian neighbourhood" for many reasons, I wanted to draw attention to the issue of "appropriate infill housing" in established urban communities such as ours all across the country.
