Councillor finds plans for Rochester Field unacceptable

By Melissa Murray, Ottawa Community News, October 24, 2017

A National Capital Commission plan to develop part of Rochester Field is unacceptable to the local councillor.

A meeting last month about the rezoning for the Westboro green space — located between Richmond Road and the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway at Broadview Avenue — brought out about 60 people. It was tense, according to Kitchissippi Coun. Jeff Leiper.

“People have a lot invested in Rochester Field. It is very much a treasured green space in the community and any changes to it are naturally going to engender some questions and discomfort,” he said.
