Coalition to host summit on transportation equity

By Jennifer McIntosh, Ottawa Community News, August 18, 2017

A transportation equity summit could pave the way for an open dialogue with the city’s planning and design managers, said Trevor Haché, a spokesperson for the Healthy Transportation Coalition.

The summit — the second of its kind in the capital — was developed over the last year as a partnership between the coalition and EnviroCentre.

It will be an all-day event at city hall on Sept. 22, for a cost of $30, but Haché said thanks to a 2014 Ontario Trillium Foundation grant, organizers can offer a subsidy for a third of the spots.

“There’s the capacity for 150 people and, of that, 50 people’s registration fees will be subsidized,” Haché said.
