What approaches are available to ensure that there is enough park, sports and community centre space in our quickly growing ward? Dovercourt and Plant are wonderful, but still small and full already, and there are no sizable filed or rink facilities anywhere nearby. With increasing density in our ward and in neighbouring wards, this community (from kids to seniors) really needs some additional capacity. (Kitchissippi)
Greenbank and Merivale roads are both very uncomfortable for bicycling, so most cyclists choose to ride on the sidewalk. Both also have an asphalt "kill strip" which is pretty continuous and quite bikeable. I usually ride on the kill strip, and it seems like this would require only some pretty minor changes to make it into a real cycletrack. What is stopping us from making Greenbank and Merivale Rds. bike-friendly? Example image on Greenbank Rd.: http://goo.gl/maps/3fMWp (Knoxdale Merivale)
Uber as announced intention to try and expand to Ottawa. So far most of the official reaction is they must register as a cab company and use licensed cabbies.

Stittsville Main Street is a mess. Boarded up buildings, empty lots, abandoned townhomes. Not to mention traffic congestion and no bike lanes. What are some concrete steps that you will take in the next four years to improve conditions on the street? (Stittsville)
