Lansdowne Transportation Monitoring and Operations Committee Community Report 2016

Introduction

The OSCA Traffic and Safety Committee has been representing Old Ottawa South at the Lansdowne Transportation Monitoring and Operations Committee (LTMOC) for a little over two years.  Each spring LTMOC presents its Annual Report to the Transportation Committee at City Hall.  The community groups and associations participating at LTMOC meetings also develop community reports and these are included with LTMOC’s Annual Report.

When LTMOC’s Annual Report is presented to the City’s Transportation Committee, the communities also have an opportunity to present in person their summations of the year’s activities and to respond to questions from the Transportation Committee.

Early in March, OSCA’s 2016 Community Report was submitted to LTMOC and can be read in its entirety here at www.oldottawasouth.ca.

Taking Care of Business, Thinking Ahead

Although the work of the Committee continues to be driven by recommendations endorsed by OSCA in September 2013, we are beginning to plan for 2015-2016 and look forward to your feedback, either in written format or at our monthly meetings, the first Tuesday of every month at the Firehall.
