Speaker: Alain Miguelez
Topic: Ottawa: A City Grows Up
This presentation will recap some the salient changes and transformations in Ottawa over the last decade, and delve into the major projects and initiatives that are in the pipeline and will further transform the city and its region. Particular attention will be placed on the urban core, where significant investments in rapid transit, commercial and residential projects, and a renewed attention on urban design, are placing a new spotlight on one of Canada’s most liveable and enjoyable downtowns. The session will conclude with remarks on some of Ottawa’s key up-and-coming areas and neighbourhoods. Several points of particular interest to Almonte will be discussed.
