One of the things you do to get people interested in a topic is tell them what exactly you are doing.
If you’re going to get people interested in this topic, you’ve got to tell them what is at stake. From this release … nothing.
Unless the purpose of all this is not to get people interested so the city can just do what it wants.
When has that ever happened?
The City of Ottawa’s By-law and Regulatory Services Branch is conducting a Noise By-law review, and residents are invited to provide their feedback through an online public consultation survey or by attending one of the three public workshops. The online survey runs until Monday, May 1.
The online survey (link is external)will provide residents with brief facts on the by-law and an opportunity to give their opinions on the possible changes and additions.
Residents can also register at one of the following three, in-person public workshops, where participants can collaboratively share ideas on creating solutions to various noise-related issues:
Tuesday, April 25, 6:30 to 8 p.m.
Greenboro Community Centre
Room: Meeting Room A & B
Wednesday, April 26, 6:30 to 8 p.m.
McNabb Recreation Centre
Room: Assembly Hall
Monday, May 1, 6:30 to 8 p.m.
Overbrook Community Centre
Room: Main Reception Hall
Space is limited at all three workshops. Interested participants can register at ottawa.ca.(link is external) All sites are accessible. When you register, please advise us of any accommodations you may require.
Feedback from the online consultation and workshops will be combined with other studies and stakeholder consultations to develop a recommendations report that will go before the Community and Protective Services Committee, currently scheduled on May 18, and City Council on May 24.
The last time the city looked at the noise bylaw with any kind of publicity was when it granted exemptions to the bylaw for the builders of Lansdowne and the former Les Soeurs de la Visitation convent.
That was walked on to a council meeting. Not good unless you want the minimum discussion possible.
Perhaps now readers see why your agent has some concerns about the unnamed changes to the noise bylaw.
