Prince of Wales Bridge

One of the hot topics of conversation right now is the Prince of Wales Bridge closure. As many residents have seen, on Tuesday four new chain link gates were installed to prevent access to the bridge, and at least one of those has already been damaged. I’d like to take this opportunity to address how we got to this point, and where we go from here.

Some interesting development stats: intensification by the numbers

As I just posted this morning, one of the considerations we're asking the Ottawa Public Library Board to take into account in their deliberations about the potential to build a larger replacement for Rosemount is population growth. Kitchissippi is growing quickly through both infill and the big apartment/condo towers. Recently, I asked for the number of building permits issued in the past five years in our ward, broken down by type of housing.
