Bassano Pollinator Garden

We're pleased to announce that we are receiving a grant from the United Way Ottawa to start a pollinator garden in Bassano Park (between Withrow and Rossland). More details to come but in the meantime, we are looking for volunteers to help. Sign up today!

Cash-in-lieu of Parkland Funds

The CVCA continues to fight for benefits from the City like the cash-in-lieu of parkland funds when it comes to development. Cash-in-lieu fees are collected from developers when they do not or can not provide parkland in their proposed developments. City View has one of, if not the lowest, park ratios in Ottawa yet most of the infill development has not provided any cash-in-lieu funds. In fact, our records show that out of some 78 infills in City View since 2013, only 17 have contributed to the parkland fund. Learn more>

Help Keep City View Safe: Keep Vehicles Locked

Reminder to keep cars locked & to report any criminal behaviour to Ottawa Police Service.

We have received numerous reports regarding attempted car break-ins, particularly near Lotta, Bassano and Cordova. If you have been a victim of vehicle related theft, please report it as it enables the police to track patterns of criminal behaviour and better allocate police resources. Learn more>

City's Tree Protection By-law 

The City’s new Tree Protection By-law came into effect on January 1, 2021. Residents and developers must obtain a permit to remove trees on their property. FYI residents also cannot prune trees on City property without permission. Report cases of tree removal and potential violations by calling 311 immediately. Learn more>
