When the City of Ottawa’s environment committee meets tomorrow, it will be looking at a staff report from two departments that citizens from BIG TREES of Kitchissippi are saying has to go back to the drawing board.
The Champlain Oaks is one of 10 groups and community associations that form BIG TREES, and I have been quoted in a press release (PDF will load) being issued today. The BIG TREES group is asking the committee members to reject the report as presented based on it being “flawed and unprofessional.”
It is never good to only criticize, so BIG TREES reps from across Kitchissippi will be on hand at the meeting to advise councillors on how the report can be improved. Please judge for yourself whether improvements are required by taking a look at the update report (PDF will load).
The Environment Committee meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. in the Champlain Room in the Heritage Building, next to the main City Hall via a raised passageway.
