Problems with the new routes (such as not fully connecting across downtown Ottawa) have lead to this survey to get feedback to present to municipal candidates, and to the formation of the Ottawa Transit Riders’ Group.

Subject: Overhead Catenary System – Electrification

To that end, I am attaching a bilingual education poster for you to share with your community association and neighbours. I will also be sharing this poster with the local schools.

The purpose of this information session is to engage and obtain input from property owners, businesses and residents affected by this potential change. Stakeholder feedback and information will then be included in a forthcoming report that will go to the City’s Finance and Economic Development Committee (FEDCO) and City Council for final approval.

Nous aimerions vous inviter à une séance d’information publique sur le tronçon en tunnel de la ligne de train léger sur rail (TLR) entre les avenues Cleary et Woodroffe.

Vos commentaires contribueront grandement à équilibrer l’importance accordée à ces trois secteurs. La réunion aura lieu le 14 septembre 2016 à l’église orthodoxe ukrainienne.

Cette séance d’information vise à attirer l’attention des résidents, des entreprises et des propriétaires fonciers concernés par l’éventuelle modification du tracé et à obtenir leurs commentaires à cet égard.
