Green Streets Can Calm Traffic

Recent articles have drawn attention to the unattractive trees and gardens on Bank Street in Old Ottawa South and have raised the question — whose job is it to remedy this situation?

The Old Ottawa South Traffic and Safety Committee, chaired by Winnie Pietrykowski, has also asked that question.  The Traffic Committee, in addition to following up on the OOS Traffic Survey with the City officials and sitting on the Lansdowne Traffic Monitoring Operations Committee (LTMOC) has acted on the notion that greener streets can play a role in encouraging more respectful and safe driving by those passing through our community.  In this regard, a member of the Traffic Committee has become engaged with the Sunnyside Avenue Traffic Calming and Green Streets Project.


How a Tennis Club Found and Kept a Home Against All Odds

Free Heritage Ottawa Lecture about the Ottawa Tennis & Lawn Bowling Club

OTLBC-8857743-sThe Ottawa Tennis & Lawn Bowling Club (OTLBC) has been part of the Ottawa South neighbourhood since 1922 when the club purchased a 5-acre site on Cameron Avenue along the Rideau River, in an area then known as Ottawa South Playgrounds. George A. Crain & Sons constructed 2-storey clubhouse in August 1922, with the official opening in June 1923.

This lecture, by writer Janet Uren and architect Kris Benes, is a chance to learn more about the club's past and restoration plans for the future.
