Residents who live near Windsor Park who wish to submit feedback to the OSCA Working Group considering options for the Windsor Park fieldhouse are reminded to please send their comments by April 30, 2020.
Ever since the Firehall has been closed, OSCA's Executive Committee, the OSCA Board, and OSCA Staff have been working hard behind the scenes to make sure the Association continues to provide some of its essential services and community support. They have also started to make preparations for OSCA's new (operational and financial) reality, now that all City Recreational facilities have been mandated to stay closed until at least June 30th 2020. Below is a brief update of the types of things the Executive Committee and OSCA as a whole have been working on.
The City of Ottawa has announced plans for rehabiliation work on the Bank Street Canal Bridge and is looking for comments by May 7, 2020. With the current public health situation, no public information sessions will take place; project details are posted on the City of Ottawa website.
The Firehall is closed. Our March Break camps were cancelled, as well as the remainder of our Winter Session Programs. And with the extension of the closure of all of the City’s recreation centres until at least June 30th, we have now also had to cancel our Spring programs. But as we are sure you know, OSCA’s staff have been as busy as ever these past few weeks.
The closure of the Firehall has had a huge impact on all of us and like many, we are all missing the connections that our community space provides. As you have probably seen in the news, the City of Ottawa has announced that all recreation facilities will be closed until at least June 30th, 2020, and this includes the Firehall. One of the consequences of the closure is that we also do not have access to our phone line to answer questions and provide assistance.

The world is a different place, but we’re in this together. As I write this (on March 20th) the world has already changed exponentially. I expect it to have changed even more by the time you read this. So perhaps this is better written and read as an historical record.
