Ecology Ottawa is joining Walkable Ottawa to hold a workshop to discuss what would make a successful walkable shopping destination in your neighbourhood. Already have one but think it could be even better? Don't have one yet, but you're looking to a walkable future? Join us and share your ideas!
The Workshop will take place on Zoom: Wednesday, November 30th 7–9pm
The City of Ottawa has put 15 minute neighbourhoods at the centre of the plan of how our city will grow and flourish in future. A key component of a 15 minute neighbourhood is a walkable shopping destination. Imagine small shops where you could buy milk and some basic groceries, a small bakery? A café where you could meet your neighbours? An ice cream shop?
Complete a visual preference survey by November 21st and tell us what you think by following this Visual Preferences Survey. Your feedback will provide important input to the workshop.
The purpose of the workshop will be to get at questions such as:
· Where could a walkable shopping destination be located in my neighbourhood?
· What are the elements that need to be included/addressed to make a new shopping destination a success or to make an existing one even better?
· What steps are needed to encourage a new walkable shopping destination to take root in my neighbourhood?
This is a grassroots process, intended to inform the City of Ottawa and the public on how this can be done and to develop a framework that could be tailored to contribute to creating complete 15-minute neighbourhoods across the city.
