You can create positive change by telling City decision makers about concerns in your community.
Start by identifying a specific issue and considering possible solutions. For example, maybe you’ve noticed that poor lighting on your street makes people feel unsafe at night. A solution could be to put in new street lights.
Next, you can visit the City of Ottawa’s website to identify who’s responsible for fixing this type of issue. There are lots of ways to engage them. For example, you could write letters, participate in public consultations, or organize a rally at City Hall.
