(press release via City of Ottawa)
The City’s Community and Protective Services Committee approved today a proposal to rename the Goulbourn Recreation Complex to “Cardel Rec – Goulbourn.” The new name is part of a sponsored naming rights agreement with Cardel Homes, a local home building company celebrating its 20th year in Ottawa.
The Committee also approved two commemorative naming proposals to recognize Stittsville residents by naming future parks located in the Abbotsville Development in their honour. If City Council concurs, one future park will be named “Lee Boltwood Park” in recognition of extensive community service, and another will be named “Susanna Kemp Park” for historical significance to the community.
Reports for items approved by the Committee will go to City Council on Wednesday, April 12.
The Committee received an information report from Councillor Catherine McKenney discussing the possible policy implementation of making Ottawa a sanctuary city. A number of community groups and interested residents attended the meeting to speak about the report.
The Committee also received a presentation from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario, which consisted of an overview of roles and responsibilities in the process of liquor licensing.
