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.

I agree that Ottawa is still pandering to the automobile instead of focusing on public transit walk ability and cycling which is the opposite of the global trend,.

OC Transpo is a farce thanks to Jim Watson and the “transit counsellors”, Ottawa is not planned, but a “Frankencity”, a real stitch-up job.

Streets take up so much community space; it’s important to ensure that everyone is able to benefit from them.
