Ecology Ottawa Rally to Hold the Urban Boundary Line

Ecology Ottawa Rally to Hold the Urban Boundary Line

The urban boundary decision is the most consequential environmental decision that council will make this term - and that many councillors will make in their careers.

It's a major opportunity for Ottawa to fight urban sprawl. Holding the line on urban expansion means taking action on climate change while protecting precious greenspace, protecting local biodiversity and building more vibrant and walkable communities.

The first of two critical votes that will shape our city for years to come will take place on Monday, May 11.

Despite thousands of petition signatures and direction to halt urban expansion from communities and groups across our city, staff are saying a decision to stop sprawl lacks public support.

Let's prove them wrong. Join us on Friday, May 8 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. for an online rally. Click here to RSVP now.

At the rally, we'll present our petition signatures to council and discuss the impacts of urban boundary expansion with special guest Dr. Dianne Saxe and other community leaders.

See you at the rally, Ottawa!
