OPINION: A 'Great Place' that could be Lost

Traditional Main Street In Old Ottawa SouthWhy 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.
