In the context of the Governance Review which the new Council will consider on December 5, FCA-FAC has written to request the terms of reference for the Transit Commission be changed to permit Councillors to review (and be held accountable for) major operational issues. Currently Council votes only on the OC Transpo budget, fare structure and labour negotiation mandate. The FCA letter is found at http://fca-fac.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/181128LT.pdf
Some FCA members presented to the Police Services Board November 28th, 2017. Here is a link to the document which summarizes their presentation.

The City of Ottawa’s current Transportation Master Plan (TMP) was approved in 2013, based on 2006 census information, 2011 traffic data, background reports and public consultation. It contains targets and strategies regarding walking, cycling, transit and vehicles for 2031. The City originally intended to update the TMP for 2018, but now does not expect to begin the process to update the TMP until 2021.
On Saturday April 8, 2017 (8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. @ Tom Brown Arena, 141 Bayview rd.) the FCA Transportation Committee will hold a half-day workshop on building a new Transportation Master Plan for our city. Please see the attached Agenda or click on it here:
