One issue which residents often contact our office about is traffic and speeding. Our office takes residents’ concerns seriously and we have been working with communities and City staff to address the problems. You will notice throughout our ward we have installed speed boards on streets where residents have expressed concerns and highlighted a danger due to speeding cars. The data collected from the speed boards is analysed by traffic staff and shared with Ottawa Police Services. When warranted staff and police services look at ways to implement traffic calming measures and enforcement.
PDF files have been attached with the speed board data collected from October – December 2017. The speed boards are divided up by neighborhood, so please take a moment to find the speed board closest to you! Please note that a few speed boards may not be in the following list as they require data to be recovered manually.

Rain didn't stop us from participating this evening in the 6th Annual YSB Sleepout. Participants committed to spending one night outside in the cold to raise money and awareness around the issue of youth homelessness. While the evening does not aim to replicate homelessness, participants spend the evening without many of the comforts of home, calling attention to the realities faced by well over 1,000 young people in Ottawa annually.

Great discussing the City's 2018 Draft Budget with Carol Anne Meehan yesterday.
