Healthy Transportation Coalition – Bay Ward Neighbourhood Team Meeting
August 21, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
As part of the trillium seed grant, the Healthy Transportation Coalition aimed to create teams in low income neighbourhoods in Ottawa who would identify priorities for transportation system improvements in their area, strategize possible actions to take, and ultimately take action to ensure that those improvements were made, with the support of the Healthy Transportation Coalition. In Bay Ward, so far, they have:
- Generated a list of transportation issues;
- Voted on our top priorities, including ensuring that buses don’t drive away too quickly, before vulnerable passengers are able to get to their seats, reducing bus fares because they are too expensive, and ensuring that sidewalks are better maintained, especially at Poulin Avenue and Don Street;
- Planned and held a letter writing party, where team members wrote letters to Councillor Kavanagh outlining their top priorities and actions that need to be taken, and presented these to the Councillor.
