Champlain Oil station proposed for heritage designation

You are here

Next Thursday, our Built Heritage Sub-Committee will consider heritage designation for the old cottage gas station at the corner of Richmond Road and Island Park. The report recommending designation is attached below. I support the recommendation, and am looking forward to the debate. This building has significant potential for any number of uses that could be positive. Over the years, I've heard a lot of support for protecting it. My comments in the staff report lean heavily on research and comments made by local chronicler Andrew King in his one of his more popular Ottawa Citizen stories. To read the full King column, just click here. And, click on the .pdf below to read more about the staff recommendation.
