Regular readers [thank you !] of WestSideAction know this is a blog with stories about planning, transportation, cyling, pedestrians, and events on the west side of the downtown. People living and working outside that area have been known to read it from time to time.
The Ottawa cultural affairs blog Apt613 asked me to do a story for them on the similarities of redevelopment of Lansdowne Park to the Sens moving to LeBreton Flats. The result is a single article that is extracted from my Building LeBetter Flats series. It kicks off a series of stories about the future of Ottawa.
Why not check out Apt613 if you are not familiar with it? http://apt613.ca/the-future-of-ottawa-series/
If this is your first time here, having been directed here by Apt 613, welcome newbies and planning wannabies. My building LeBetter Flats series started last December, you can find the first of nine parts here:
You could do worse than reading all ten [yes, there are 10 stories, nine of which got numbered and one of which somehow escaped numeration], and then continuing on right up to the most recent posts, by clicking the “next post” arrow button at the bottom of each story.
If you like what you read, or dislike it so much your blood pressure soars and you crave the stimulation, then you can subscribe [free] to get each and every new post directly to your email inbox as it happens, by filling out the email contact box on the top right side. There is a comments section after each story so you can vent or share information.
There is also a temperamental Search window on the right that you can use to enter key words and come up with wildly variant results. And there is a window to the right that lists the titles of the last bunch of stories, to pique your interest.
Thank you for visiting WSA, please become a regular.
