My name is Katie Stewart and I am a member of the Stairwell Carollers. I have lived in Old Ottawa South my whole life and I am a former student from Glebe Collegiate Institute. I first sang with this amazing choir in May 2017, as a member of the Glebe choir when we performed together with the Stairwell Carollers.

The Planning, Infrastructure and Economic Development Department offers the Planning Primer Program to help residents become more aware of, and more involved in, the land-use planning process. The program is a series of half-day courses.

GivingTuesday: OSCA is Raising $2,000 for a New Kitchen Stove & for the Annual After-Four Turkey Dinner
GivingTuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The “opening day of the giving season,” is a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for their favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday.
In my daily walks around Brewer Pond, I’ve noticed old signs of beaver activity from the beaver that used to live there in 2014. I figured it was only a matter of time before they returned, and happily, they are back.
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.
