The street that you live on is more than just a thoroughfare for cars. It's also a place, it's a destination, it's an extension of your home, and it's something to be proud of. When the city tears up your street, do you want a say in what it will look like when they put it back together again? If you enjoy riding your bike, walk around your neighbourhood, or if you rely on public transit, then this is the opportunity to have your voice heard!If you want to help Ecology Ottawa push for complete streets in your area, please take a look at the list of anticipated street renewals for your ward below. These lists are a huge opportunity because they serve as a kind of "street map" for building a better neighbourhood. The city has made it clear that the most cost effective and efficient way to start widespread implementation of Complete Streets is by including aspects in upcoming street renewal projects.
Transit, bike lanes, and wider sidewalks will not be part of the plan though unless we make it clear to the City that we want them. This is why we need your help to make sure Complete Streets are prioritized!
