In its April 2007 number, enRoute magazine named Hintonburg one of the top ten emerging neighbourhoods in Canada. The same month, Ottawa Magazine said Hintonburg is "hot" and credits our QUAD arts district as the reason residents think we're "cool". Then in June 2007, the Financial Times of London noted that the 'Burg is "thriving again" and the Ottawa Citizen, in a March 2008 editorial, declared "The changing nature of the neighbourhood is fascinating to watch... There is a hip, urban edge." So come explore the living or arts or business opportunities in Hintonburg -- you're sure to get a warm welcome.

Pedestrian Safety Audit
Thursday, April 24th | 170 Booth Street (at Albert) in the basement meeting room at CCOC building (buzz to get in)

Residents will be conducting a pedestrian safety audit of the proposed Transitway Diversion route for the upcoming LRT construction. The first
audit will be with the Women's Initiatives for Safer Environments (wiseottawa.ca) and will look at safety on the proposed new multi-use
pathway that will be built on the north side of Bayview Transitway Station through the Bayview Yards. Residents will also do an audit of the
multi-use pathways on the north side of Scott and Albert streets from Holland to Empress. There will be four teams auditing different areas,
looking for issues associated with lighting, hiding places, calling for emergency help and more.
