Possible Speed Bumps on Coldrey Avenue

May 30th, 2017 Comments off

Our Councillor Riley Brockington is seeking your feedback regarding possible Speed Bumps on Coldrey Avenue.

This proposal comes as a result of the MTO’s pending decision to close the 417 on-ramp on Carling (adjacent to Westgate Mall). The proposal also includes road narrowings and centre median islands (one at each end) along this stretch of Coldrey Avenue.

If you have any questions or concerns with the installation of three speed humps on Coldrey Avenue, please share your feedback by email at Please provide your feedback by Monday June 12.


Ottawa Police hosts information sessions on service delivery changes

Ottawa Police hosts information sessions on service delivery changes

(Ottawa) – The Ottawa Police Service (OPS) is hosting a series of public information sessions for residents to learn more about changes to its service delivery model.

These changes are part of a strategy called the Service Initiative (SI) Program, which is designed to improve how the OPS serves the community.

At the information sessions, residents will learn about their Community Police Officers, how to access policing services, where to direct concerns about safety in their neighbourhood, and more.

Three sessions are being hosted across the city. Spaces are limited (100 spots per session) so residents are asked to register online, starting today.

Date Time Location
Monday, January 16, 2017 7-8:30 pm Nepean Sportsplex, Hall C and D

1701 Woodroffe Ave, K2G 1W2

Wednesday, January 18, 2017 7-8:30 pm Kanata Recreation Complex, Upper Hall A

100 Charlie Rogers Place, K2V 1A2

Thursday, January 19, 2017 7-8:30 pm Bob MacQuarrie Recreation Complex, Hiawatha Park Room

1490 Youville Drive, K1C 2X8

A number of changes have already been made to the OPS service delivery model – such as a new organizational structure for investigative units and the Strategic Operations Centre, a hub for frontline, day-to-day operations and acts as a virtual back-up for officers on the road.

Effective January 23, 2017, the OPS will be launching the last of the major SI restructurings, the new Frontline Deployment Model, which is aimed at improving community safety by making it easier to move resources across the city to where they are needed. The new model will also have more streamlined processes for partners and the public to access services.
