A group of nine students in the School of Urban and Regional Planning at Queen’s University are completing a project course that focuses on re-imagining the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway (SJAM) as a linear park along the Ottawa River from LeBreton Flats to Mud Lake.

They would like to ask some questions about the SJAM Parkway, as well as to receive input on things you enjoy or value about the park, any challenges it currently presents, and any changes you’d like to see occur. Attached are:

You can send your answers (the PDF has fillable fields) and the consent form to Alia Tulloch <> (copied). Or you can fax the signed consent form to the School of Urban and Regional Planning (attn. Parkway Project Group) at 1-613-533-6905.

The supervisor of this project, by the way, is David Gordon. Some of you may remember him as one of the speakers at the NCC’s Greenbelt Visioning Workshop in November 2009, where he reportedly said that “some” development could be ok, while also advocating extending the GB to areas further out. (Neither of these ideas went anywhere as the Greenbelt Master Plan review proceeded: a very “green” vision of the Greenbelt was maintained but, except for reincorporating Leitrim Wetland, no major extensions were adopted.)

Hope some of you will wish to participate. I can find no deadline but imagine they want your answers pronto.
