July 7, 2016: Rumour Has It…

  • … That the 10th Annual Hintonburg 5K Run On July 10th (and Kids’ 1K) will have CAKE – and plenty of it.
  • … That the tower coming to Rosemount Avenue (behind the Rosemount Library) will feature rental units instead of condos.
  • … That the Queensway onramp at Westgate has its own Twitter account @WestgateOnramp .
  • … That Westboro Beach is the place to be Fridays – Sundays through the summer with music from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. and fun all day long.
  • … That Parkdale and Wellington will have a new Retirement Living building 9 stories high.
  • … That Community Policing is responsible for Kitchissippi’s admirably low crime rate; among the highest in Ottawa 20 years ago, we have one of the lowest crime rates today. Community Policing – an idea whose time is still here.
  • … That a newly blossoming site in Mechanicsville will host community gardens with accessible water, and someone is busily seeking community gardeners.
  • … That the MCA will install a new mural somewhere north of Scott to protect property from graffiti – a form of vandalism that diminshes property values and highlights those property owners/custodians who are unconcerned with, or unaware of, basic community optics.
