EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE A SAY IN HOW THEIR NEIGHBOURHOOD CHANGES
The last five years have seen significant shifts in Ottawa’s West Centretown community. Many new, large construction projects are geared to upper-income homeowners and condo owners. As a result of rising home and rental prices, long-time residents have been forced to move, rooming houses have been shut down and resold.
The Building Community Together (BCT) project was initiated to respond to these troubling trends. During consultations with more than 500 people, we learned that community members are concerned that these changes are placing the community’s affordability and diversity at risk.
