OCA meeting to consider City’s initiative to revitalize a section of St. Laurent Boulevard

Building Better Revitalized Neighbourhoods (Vanier South-Overbrook) — or BBRN — is the name of the City’s initiative to examine ways to revitalized communities. One of their focuses is on St. Laurent Boulevard from Montreal Road to Coventry Road.

A meeting will take place at 7 pm, Thursday, 18 May at the Overbrook Community Centre, 33 Quill Street when Melanie Knight, City of Ottawa, will give an overview of the project and hear feedback from community members.

The study will consider:

  • A range of economic development incentives and initiatives for businesses along this stretch
  • Ways to improve pedestrian and cycling routes along St. Laurent Boulevard as well as to and from this commercial area
  • How to coordinate with other City projects that are ongoing or upcoming in the area
  • Key sites within Vanier South and Overbrook that may be redeveloped

Join us and have your say on these important issues.
