City staff propose renaming Trillium Line stations

Jacquie Miller, Ottawa Citizen, October 29, 2020

OC Transpo is looking for public comments on changing the name of two of the stations that are part of the Stage 2 LRT Trillium Line.

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson says staff have proposed renaming the Gladstone Station Corso Italia, to recognize the significance and contribution of Little Italy to the cultural fabric of Ottawa.

Carling Station, at Carling Avenue and Preston Street, would be renamed Dow’s Lake Station to better reflect the area and to highlight its appeal as a tourist attraction where visitors flock during the Tulip Festival and Winterlude, Watson posted on Twitter.

Public consultations will begin Thursday.
