Petition to Deal with Derelict Building in OOS

Old Ottawa South deserves better than West Coast Video eyesore

Little has been done to address the eyesore that is the former home of West Coast Video and Elee Spa in the heart of Old Ottawa South. The building has been empty for 9 years following a 2009 fire. In addition to being an eyesore known to house racoons and other small animals (raising public health concerns), it is an example of how our city is putting developer interests ahead of the people of Ottawa. Old Ottawa South is a vibrant and growing community that deserves better. This space could be, for example, a youth drop-in centre, or it could house a tool co-operative and permanent farmer’s market.

I support action using all legal means necessary to ensure this building transforms into the positive space our community deserves.

    Hopewell School is overcrowded. The building could house several classrooms such as music, science lab, library, computer lab, comfortably.
