There's a by-law for that

Ottawa has dozens of by-laws. This year, many of those will be examined. What's your priority?

Here at the City, we actually have very few tools to accomplish what residents want. We have on the one hand the ability to spend your money on things, and all the policies that go around that. On the other, we have regulations, which typically take the form of by-laws.

Heritage Designation of Broadview Public School

File photo / Ottawa Citizen

Today’s approval by Planning Committee for the heritage designation of Broadview Public School is a positive decision for our community. For nearly 100 years, this campus has served our community, shaping generations of residents and enriching our neighbourhood through its presence. I am happy to see that our city’s heritage is being protected and, more specifically, that an iconic element of our ward in the Highland Park and McKellar Park communities will remain as a sign post pointing to our proud, but rapidly-disappearing past.

This morning, the City distributed the following note to the affected areas, with contact info if you have concerns. Of course, you can always contact me as well at jeff.leiper@ottawa.ca. The work has been stopped, and I am looking forward to finding out and reporting back to you why this has happened.
