Who: Organized by Ecology Ottawa & the Centretown Citizens' Community Association (CCCA)
Why: To discuss as a community any concerns related to active transit(1), explain what the audit is and how it is done, and to determine the route and date for the actual audit. A similar audit last month in the Lowertown neighbourhood was a big success and sparked interest from many community groups, the City and media.
(1) Active transportation includes any form of human-powered transportation - walking, cycling, using a wheelchair, skateboarding, rollerblading. Active transportation not only promotes healthy communities but also reduces GHG emissions and other pollution directly by taking cars off the road.
I'll be there and hope to see you out at this event and the August audit! If you cannot attend, but know of intersections or streets difficult for you to walk or cycle on, let us know. And please share this message with other Centretowners!
Together let's improve walkability in our community.
