Ottawa is currently completing a review of five official planning documents, including the Official Plan, and has identified Complete Streets as one of fourteen principles to guide the review.
Ryan Whitney, of the Toronto Centre for Active Transportation, will discuss how a Complete Streets policy can direct Ottawa's planners and engineers to create streets that work for all users at this key moment in the City's planning history. Dr. Rosamund Lewis, Associate Medical Officer of Health, Policy and Partnerships, Ottawa Public Health, will discuss the public health benefits of complete streets. City Councillor Keith Egli, Chair of Ottawa's Transportation Committee, will welcome guests and encourage a discussion on Complete Streets in Ottawa.
The event is being organized by Ecology Ottawa, the Student Federation of the University of Ottawa's Bike Coop, Walk Ottawa, Citizens for Safe Cycling, Green Communities Canada, EnviroCentre, and the Toronto Centre for Active Transportation.
