We, the undersigned, applaud the City of Ottawa for considering Complete Streets as one of the planning issues to be used to review the Official Plan, Transportation Master Plan, Infrastructure Master Plan, Cycling Plan, and Pedestrian Plan. Ottawa needs Complete Streets, where safe and comfortable access for pedestrians, cyclists and public transit users of all ages and abilities is not an afterthought, but an integral part of the planning process for the construction, retrofitting, and maintenance of all roadways.  

We urge Mayor Jim Watson and all Ottawa City Councillors to support the passage and implementation of a comprehensive Complete Streets policy into all planning documents under review. The policy should be applied to the entire urban boundary so that residents in urban Ottawa, as well as citizens living in the suburbs and villages, all benefit from Complete Streets.

For the past 10 years the City of Ottawa has been spending far too little on improving our roads for pedestrians, cyclists and public transit users and far too much on roads primarily designed to be conduits for automobiles. It is time for Ottawa to move in a new direction.

PÉTITION POUR LES RUES COMPLÈTES

Nous, les soussignés, applaudissons la Ville d'Ottawa d’envisager les rues complètes comme l'une des questions de planification qui seront étudiées lors de la révision du plan officiel, du plan directeur des transports, du plan sur le cyclisme et du plan de la circulation piétonnière. Ottawa a besoin de rues complètes, où l'accès sécuritaire et confortable pour les piétons, les cyclistes et les utilisateurs du transport en commun de tout âge et de toute capacité,  ne soit pas une arrière-pensée, mais une partie intégrale du processus de planification pour la construction, l'amélioration et l'entretien de toutes les chaussées.

Nous exhortons le maire Jim Watson et tous les membres du conseil municipal d'Ottawa, d'appuyer l'adoption et l'intégration d'une politique de rues complètes dans tous les documents de planification à l'étude. La politique devrait être appliquée à l'ensemble du territoire d'Ottawa, de sorte que tous les résidents, qu'ils soient des secteurs urbains ou des banlieues et des villages, bénéficient des rues complètes.

Au cours des 10 dernières années, la Ville d'Ottawa a dépensé très peu pour que nos routes soient accessibles aux piétons, aux cyclistes et aux utilisateurs du transport en commun et beaucoup trop pour des routes principalement conçues pour servir de conduits pour les automobiles. Il est temps qu’Ottawa se dirige vers une nouvelle voie.

We need to be looking at the Dutch way of doing things, not only concentrate on the downtown area of the city but also the outlying areas, like Orleans, Barrhaven, Kanata. After all I would guess at least 70% of the population lives outside of the Ottawa core. As far as the painted cycle lanes on roads like Innes, Hunt Club and Woodroffe and Greenbank, these are just kill zones. They need to be separated from the traffic as vehicles keep drifting over the lines and running in the lane.

Riverside drive has the space for continuous bike paths/lanes from Hunt Club to Mooney’s bay :)
