Celebrating the contributions of the Bradley family
On Friday, July 8 we welcomed family and friends of the Bradley Family for a commemorative naming ceremony at Bradley Square on Stittsville Main Street. Three generations – Silas, Sid, and Ross – have been longtime business leaders in Stittsville. For over half a century, the Bradley name was prominent on Main Street through Bradley’s Insurance, and they donated their time and money to many local organizations, charities, community groups and minor sports teams. You can see the plaque on the west side of Stittsville Main along the Trans Canada Trail. See more photos & learn about the Bradley’s…

Landscaping and parking is regulated by the City for a number of reasons, including maintaining effective stormwater management, managing street parking spaces, meeting accessibility requirements, providing adequate snow storage, and to promote an attractive streetscape design. Read more…
