Good news: progress on opening up our Magee Sidewalk. Please see the text of the latest update from the City of Ottawa.
Numerous chants of “free our sidewalk” were loudly heard along Wellington St. West on Wednesday morning, July 24th, 2019 as over one hundred Hintonburg residents and business owners gathered at the Magee House sidewalk barricade to mark the one year anniversary of the collapse of Magee House’s west wall.
Come out to our rally at 8am on July 24th at Wellington W. at Rosemount. It’s one of the few options we have as residents to engage stakeholders and push for a timely resolution of the Magee House closures. Earlier this year we (the HCA) sought a legal opinion.
Everyone who lives, works or plays in Hintonburg has been patient with the sidewalk closure in front of Magee House on Wellington and Rosemount. But enough is enough, the sidewalk will have been blocked for an entire year on July 24th. We are holding a rally to express our frustration.
It’s that time already. Ottawa’s funkiest little road race happens this Sunday, July 14th, 2019 To participate: register here at http://www.hintonburg5k.ca. Just a few more people needed to help out: to volunteer email firstname.lastname@example.org
