Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us and to share your comments on Shepherds of Good Hope’s (SGH) proposed 216 Murray Project (see Project Website for more details https://www.sghottawa.com/216-2/). The Lowertown Community Association strives to provide a voice for the community as a whole and in the past few weeks we have been hearing from engaged citizens both praising and raising concerns about the project.
Your comments and concerns are well timed as the project is still in its early stages of development. The SGH has not yet applied for city approval and ultimately approval to develop this project will be decided by the City of Ottawa, at Planning Committee (Jan.Harder@Ottawa.ca) and at City Council (Jim.Watson@Ottawa.ca). Andrew McCreight is the planner for the project (Andrew.McCreight@Ottawa.ca). When the City receives an application, a large rezoning sign will be put up on the property with information about how to see the full details of the project on the City’s website and where to send your comments.
We would encourage you to send any concerns or positive comments directly to the SGH firstname.lastname@example.org; the Planning Committee (emails above) and/or to Councillor Mathieu Fleury, Mathieu.Fleury@ottawa.ca, additionally:
- If you have comments or concerns about outcomes for Inuit women, you may wish to contact Pauktuutit Inuit Women of Canada email@example.com.
- If you would like to know more about the grant or the Rapid Housing Initiative in general, you may wish to contact Mona.Fortier@parl.gc.ca.
- If you would like more information on homelessness issues in Ottawa, you may wish to visit the Alliance to End Homelessness Ottawa’s website.
We thank you for your efforts and desire to make Lowertown a better community for all.
Lowertown Community Association
