As usual, the candidates were voted in without opposition. Guest speakers spoke, reports were made by the subcommittees and many things were discussed (my favourite was the telescope night idea, runner up was a feel good rink story).
The message from the board is:
Thx all for a great AGM, lots of amazing things happening in our neighbourhood – special thank you to Liz from the CPCA and Fiona in Jeff’s office for their help in making the AGM a success!
Here are the public documents from the 2021 annual general meeting of the Champlain Park Community Association.
Call for volunteers for a Community Garden approved for NCC land, west of the Parkdale off-ramp.
Dear Community Garden supporters,
The Goldenrod Community Garden has recently received approval to build a garden on a parcel of NCC land between Goldenrod Drive in the Tunney’s Pasture Complex and the SJAM Parkway. The garden location is just west of the Parkdale off-ramp of the SJAM Parkway.
We received approval and funding from the Ottawa Community Garden Network (a City of Ottawa agent) to purchase materials to build the garden infrastructure including: fencing, a storage shed and raised beds. We anticipate that we will start building as soon as the snow melts in the spring of 2021, approximately mid-April.
We are looking for members of the Hintonburg, Mechanicsville, Champlain Park and Westboro communities who are interested in participating in building the Goldenrod Community Garden in a number of roles. Please read the roles below and send an email with your name, availability and role to: email@example.com
Please register in advance for this Zoom meeting:
An e-mail with a link to the actual video conference will be sent to you (virtual doors open 7:25), along with the location of meeting related documents.

Champlain Park’s AGM Guest Speakers this year are Érinn Cunningham, President, and William van Geest, Advocacy Working Group, from Bike Ottawa (Citizens for Safe Cycling Since 1984). Bike Ottawa volunteers work with Community Associations, Councillors and City Staff to advocate for enhanced safety measures that keep pedestrians and cyclists safe. Recently they partnered with CPCA and other local communities to advocate for improvements to the pedestrian and cycling plans for Scott Street, which are scheduled for implementation in the fall. On January 13, Jeff Leiper hosted a meeting to firm up our recommendations.

Ottawa is in the process of building a new Official Plan, to direct the City’s growth and development during the next couple of decades.
The proposed plan takes a significantly different approach to city planning and redevelopment than has been taken in the past.

The goal is to “Transform” the Inner Urban Transect fairly quickly to accommodate greater density.
The Federation of Citizens’ Associations (FCA) will be presenting four workshops on the next two Saturday mornings. The purpose is to: Continue reading
