Overbrook residents demand infrastructure improvements
Metro Ottawa

Residents of Overbrook are concerned about what they see as a lack of basic infrastructure in their neighbourhood, which is home to a high percentage of low-income residents.

“There’s a lot of areas that don’t have sidewalks,” said Overbrook Community Association president Rawlson King. “And the way the city typically operates is that sidewalks only go in if there’s new developments.

”Some of the concerns were generalized—residents just want better infrastructure, but not specific infrastructure. Others were more specific—King says the community would like to see OC Transpo roll back some 2011 cost-cutting measures that saw routes in the neighbourhood reduced.
