2. Time to Yourself When you’re busy managing work, family, and friends, it can be hard to find time for yourself. We all deserve a couple hours to sit back with a warm beverage, cozy up with a new book, take a nap, or get through some errands without worrying about the kids. On February 6th we are offering a Valentine’s Craft Workshop from 1–4 pm for children 6–12 years old. Enjoy a few hours just for you while your kids have fun making beautiful Valentine’s Day themed crafts. Call or come in to the centre for more details.

City of Ottawa Information

The City’s Planning and Growth Management Department is undertaking a study of small scale, residential infill housing.

The work stems from concerns expressed by citizens and community groups about the impacts of new infill housing on their neighbourhoods. The study has focussed on inner city wards (12, 13, 14, 15 and 17) and the Councillors in these wards have been informed about the project. Initial findings suggest that there are opportunities to improve the local impact of small scale infill.

You can read more about the findings at The City will be hosting a series of public consultation meetings to present the findings and explore possible solutions to address patterns of infill housing that appear to have a negative impact on neighbourhoods.
