In 2024, Trillium Line (MRT) begins the enablement of travel innovation and improved Quality of Life.

The community of 17,000 residents at Mooney’s Bay Beach, where the Rideau River splits to the locks at Parliament and falls on the Ottawa, a Hydro One transmission corridor splits it.

Festivals increase the population (11) eleven-fold, and the community is a major hub in Ottawa for recreation, sports, and social life.

Community is family focused for early development, elementary, secondary, university and advanced medical, high tech and Government careers and services.

Mobilize an embedded, hybrid community-based business network where the Quality of Life provides 66% green (unspoiled) space for highly experiential, effective human activity within a comfortable living environment.

Target Audience
Near term the parents, with students in schools of the Riverside Park and Hunt Club community neighborhoods, longer term the students.

Project Activities

Online resources
Knowledge Base, Website, E-mail based newsletters, Interactive text, Individual/Group posts are established and available through existing community infrastructure.

Evaluation and Monitoring
The program has baselined Pre and Post assessments methodology to measure and receive feedback through subscriptions to initiate and grow long term.

Project Timeline
The project spans the end to beginning of the school term, for approximately 12 weeks.
Communications, media plan and kit will be through the online resources and pop-up venues in place of the public and arriving groups.

$XX,000. allocated over the three activities in sequence 40%, 40%, 20% for mainly student funding.

Auto Thefts continue to be a serious problem in our city and province.

Although no one method will stop a potential thief, here are some suggestions to make your vehicle less desirable to thieves.

  1. Park in a garage or blocked in by other cars. If you have a car with a key start, park behind the car with the push start.
  2. On Board Diagnostic port locks are devices that go over the OBD port and deny would-be thieves access to your onboard computer to steal your car.
  3. Car thefts from public areas have increased. A steering wheel club can be a deterrent, especially in a high visibility area. 4. A vehicle immobilizer. An add-on like the OBD port blocker. It disables your vehicle completely until the immobilizer is deactivated.
  4. Check your vehicle for Airtags and GPS devices. Apple, and now Android devices can detect the presence of Airtags.
  5. Install tracking software or an after-market GPS device. Many cars have features that can be used to track and locate your car (through a subscription).

Although no method is perfect, using one or more of these options will reduce the likelihood of your vehicle being taken.

Many of these thefts take little time to complete, and if a would-be thief sees barriers to their success, they may choose to move on.

If you see something or someone suspicious hanging around vehicles overnight, do not hesitate to call 911.
