RSVP for All Candidates Debate on Transportation

Cylcing, walkability, public transit and complete streets to be focus of all Candidates Debate 

Over the next four years the Confederation LRT Line will change the face of downtown Ottawa, taking thousands of buses off the streets and offering a once in a century opportunity to build a walkable and cycling friendly Centretown. That's just one topic Somerset Ward candidates can be expected to address at the first all candidates debate of the 2014 municipal election season. This debate will focus on transportation, including cycling, walkability, public transit, roads, parking and how we build our streets and get around. 

When: Monday, June 16, 2014 6:30 - 9:00 pm
Where: Knox Presbyterian Church, 120 Lisgar Str.

This is an open event and all are welcome, but RSVPs would be appreciated. 

What is important to you? What questions do you have for the candidates? Please send your questions to to the following email address and, if you are selected, Rogers TV, Cable 22 will video your question before the debate:questions@centretowncitizens.ca

The event will be broadcast by Rogers TV, Cable 22, and moderated by the Ottawa Citizen's Joanne Chianello.
 
Notably, this fall Somerset Ward will elect a new councillor. The June 16th forum is an opportunity for citizens to make an early assessment of the candidates.

    Excellent opportunity to ask questions:
    1. What will you do regarding the unacceptable encroachment of private-establishment patios onto public sidewalks along Elgin Street in light of the city’s “duty to care” and the public’s infringed right to unimpeded access to public sidewalks?
    2. What will you do about the bicycle lanes along Laurier Ave West and the impossibility of emergency vehicles to navigate the road given that vehicles cannot move to the right as per protocol?

    An important opportunity for sure. Hope that Downtown Moves is considered as it was accepted by Council as a guide to the renewal of downtown streets. Also the EcoDistrict identity can be an asset. "Downtown Moves is an Urban Design and Transportation Study that identifies ways to create more vibrant, inclusive, safe and accessible streets for residents, workers and visitors of all ages and abilities across Ottawa's Central Business District (CBD)." http://ottawa.ca/en/city-hall/planning-and-development/community-plans-and-design-guidelines/design-and-planning-0-101
