About this event:
Learn how the City of Ottawa invests in Transportation and how you shape its future.
The City of Ottawa recently passed Phase 1 of the Transportation Master Plan – This plan describes how the City of Ottawa invests in our transportation network over the next 20 years. In the Fall of 2023, the city will reengage with the public to help shape Phase 2, looking at travel patterns and trends, transit and road projects, and investment scenarios.
Join this Brown Bag Lunch to get an inside view of City Planning from City Councillor Laine Johnson, learn how amalgamation created an interesting challenge for the City of Ottawa’s transportation network, and discuss how you can have a say in how Ottawa invests in transportation moving forward.
