Back in December 2019, we hosted a public forum on Bank Street Transportation through Old Ottawa South and the Glebe. We know the street does not currently meet the needs of all road users. As a first step, we have released our As We Heard It report. This report includes the presentations by community groups and city staff, as well as the feedback we received before, after, and during the meeting.
As part of the City of Ottawa infrastructure work in the northwestern area of the neighbourhood, a couple new bicycle lanes are being added to the road network. Now in place is the section on Seneca Street, southbound, from Sunnyside to Cameron Avenue.
On Saturday, July 20, 2019, the communities of the Glebe, Old Ottawa East, and Old Ottawa South celebrated the opening of the Flora Footbridge that stretches from Fifth Avenue in the Glebe to Clegg Street in Old Ottawa East.
The second Capital Spokes Bike Rally & Rodeo was held on Sunday, June 2, 2019 in Windsor Park. This year the Old Ottawa South Community Association (OSCA) and the Ottawa Tennis & Lawn Bowling Club (OTLBC) collaborated to stretch Capital Spokes into a weekend event.
