The full text of the letter is provided. If…
On 10 November 2023 City Council will decide whether to approve the current proposal for the redevelopment of Lansdowne Park, “Lansdowne 2.0“. Many neighbourhood residents, and your community association, OSCA, have grave doubts about this proposal, involving the construction of 40-storey skyscrapers, the loss of public space, and the implications for traffic and liveability.

The City of Ottawa has received a proposal from the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) to strengthen the partnership and redevelop Lansdowne to make it financially stable for the long term and to rehabilitate public infrastructure.
The proposal is to demolish the existing north stadium stands and arena complex, and build a new, world-class event centre and north stadium stands. This new public infrastructure will make the venues accessible and sustainable, better positioning Lansdowne as an iconic, landmark site. A new retail podium and additional residential units are also included within the proposal. To learn more about the proposal, please visit the Lansdowne 2.0 Engage Ottawa page.
