The Hintonburg Community Association (HCA) works on your behalf to protect and enhance the quality of life enjoyed by all residents of our neighbourhood. Our Board of Directors has been keeping a watchful eye on the planning for the Light Rail Corridor, particularly the proposed stations at Gladstone and at Bayview.
What do you want your neighbourhood to become?
In 2006, the City of Ottawa embarked on a "Neighbourhood Planning" initiative for which Hintonburg is one of two pilot communities and, rest assured, the HCA is at the table. The Main Street Community Design Plan and the Wellington Street reconstruction are rolled into the Neighbourhood Planning process.

Security - HCA Security Committee Website
The HCA actively works with local government, police and the community to ensure that problems are dealt with in a fair and expedient manner. Street-level prostitution is one such issue and a pamphlet, Dispelling the Myths, documents and gives voice to those whose lives have been negatively affected by such activity.
Traffic in older, growing neighbourhoods is always a concern and with planned major road renewal scheduled soon for Hintonburg, it will continue to be an issue to watch.
The HCA is concerned that any new development be compatible with our community and enhance our neighbourhoods. We are also deeply involved in trying to improve municipal policies that determine what is built in Hintonburg and in the city at large.
Arts and heritage
Hintonburg has a rich history, a remarkable built heritage and a lively arts community.
