In a little over the month, not long after the clocks tick over into 2019, a major chunk of Elgin Street will be closed to cars and will be torn up for one of the more ambitious street re-designs in recent Ottawa history, and on Wednesday night residents got their final chance to weigh in on and ask questions about the design.
At a public information meeting at city hall, Alain Gonthier, Director of Infrastructure Services with the City of Ottawa, asked residents to “imagine the new Elgin Street [...] and imagine a street that’s filled with human activity. A street that really puts the focus on people, and less on cars.”
There has been a high level of public engagement on this planning file so far, and many of the hundred or so people in attendance were there for their second or third time.https://www.ottawamatters.com/local-news/residents-take-final-chance-to-weigh-in-before-elgin-street-overhaul-1140081
