QTSRCA President Attends Infill Meeting

On Wed., Oct.30, QTSRCA President, Andrea D'Agostino, attended the City's meeting (click here) to solicit  input from the public on  infill residential development in the mature neighbourhoods of Ottawa.

Infill is when large buildings (like the one at 2522 Thorson) are built in older neighbourhoods because it allows developers to condense the population in an area and build larger buildings on the lots (hence, "filling IN" the neighbourhood).

QTSR is a mature neighbourhood that will probably be dealing with these issues on a frequent basis in the future. We need to be vigilant about what is being allowed to be built in our community as it can have a major impact on the character of our neighbourhood.
