Ottawa: A Blueprint For Growth

The Ottawa 20/20 Smart Growth Summit makes recommendations for managing growth in Ottawa, Canada.

"A long-awaited 'blueprint' for the growing City of Ottawa recommends a crackdown on single-driver commuters, an annual report card on how the city is managing its growth, heavy investment in public transit and a new official plan that also looks at environmental, social and cultural needs of a national capital."
