Do you want more of this in the Glebe?image

Or something more like this?

For those of you interested in the issues surrounding infill, and to make sure that it respects the character of the existing streetscape, you might be interested in the following: 

Low-Rise Infill Housing Study, Stage II

Information Sessions

Proposed Zoning By-law changes will be presented – join us to review the proposals, discuss and provide your input.

The City has been studying zoning changes to ensure infill developments make a positive contribution to the character and quality of mature neighbourhoods.

Public workshops were held In June with residents, representatives from community associations, City Council members and members of the infill industry to explore ways to regulate height, massing and rear and side setbacks to ensure compatibility with established neighbourhoods.

In the News – GCA Priorities and Better Neighbourhood Program


GCA sets its priorities in first meeting of the year, as related here. How about doing something about tear downs and rebuilds, like the house (above) at the corner of Second and Chrysler that recently disappeared?

One really good idea would be to look into figuring out how to make the Glebe a better place to live by thinking off something that would qualify for the Better Neighbourhoods Program. You have until October 21st to come up with something good!
