Register to Speak at the Planning Committee Meeting

As previously indicated, the Planning Committee will be hearing to the application for 114 Richmond Road (the Soeur de la Visitation Convent) on Tuesday September 28 at 9:30.  It is important that as many people in the community come out to voice their concerns with this proposed development.

So far only 5 people are registered to speak.   While there were many more submissions and hundreds of signatures on the petition, Ashcroft has tried to indicate that the majority of people are in favour of this development as proposed.  A large turnout from the community next Tuesday is critical to dispell this notion, particularly if people are prepared to speak.  The staff report has dismissed all concerns about traffic, safety and community impact. Only the community knows how we will be impacted by this scale of development and the impact that this convent has had on the neighbourhood for decades.

If you are able to speak or wish to submit comments, please advise Caitlin Salter MacDonald at either 613-580-2424 ext. 28136, Fax: 613-580-9609 or caitlin.salter-macdonald@ottawa.ca.
