Who: Organized by Ecology Ottawa & the Centretown Citizens' Community Association (CCCA)
Why: To discuss as a community any concerns related to active transit (1), explain what the audit is and how it is done, and present the route and solidify the date for the actual audit. Similar audits have been done in 2013 for Lowertown, Centretown East/Elgin Street, and specifically Bank Street.
(1) Active transportation includes any form of human-powered transportation - walking, cycling, using a wheelchair, skateboarding, rollerblading. Active transportation not only promotes healthy communities but also reduces GHG emissions and other pollution directly by taking cars off the road.

We hope to see you out at this event and the August audit! And please share this message with other Centretowners!
Together let's improve walkability in our community.
