As I note at the bottom of this post, there are several more processes that I expect to kick off in the coming weeks, and I'll update this list when I can.

Permanent Holland bike lanes

As the new Jackie Holzman bridge was being constructed, the City installed bike lanes and traffic calming on Holland while pedestrian and cycling traffic was detoured and a level of cycling infrastructure installed. As I noted in my newsletter a few times, I've received requests from cyclists and Bike Ottawa to make those measures permanent. Staff have been evaluating whether that is feasible, and I have been informed that it is.

At an open house, I heard a clear open-mindedness to encouraging the developer to seek a zoning by-law amendment that would allow them to go a little taller in return for pulling the building away from nearby buildings. I advocated strongly with the developer to consider it.
