Pledge forms are available for 21 Withrow Avenue
The city is no longer considering a tax levy to acquire 21 Withrow, but instead will offer tax receipts for charitable donations. This is a better deal: you will receive up to 50% of your donation back as tax credits! If you previously agreed to the $60 per year levy, then please consider a $100 or more donation per year. This will cost to less, and your dollars will go further. If everyone who said yes to the levy donated $100 per year, we would have most of the required $500,000 over 10 years that the city requires to proceed with purchase. Businesses may also support us. We will provide recognition of all supporters unless you request that your support is anonymous. Please download one of the attached forms, complete it, and send it to:

MEETING ON THE PROPOSED SUBDIVISION AT 21 WITHROW AVENUE — THURSDAY JANUARY 11TH, 2018 7 pm
The City View Community Association has been notified that the City of Ottawa has received a development application for the grounds at 21 Withrow. Here is a direct link to the plans on the City of Ottawa’s web site:
In summary, there would be 4 houses with 50′ lots on Withrow, and 10 houses (including the existing heritage home) on a new private drive, with lots that are significantly smaller. It appears that all trees would be cut except those on St. Helen’s Place at the entrance to the new private drive. The city is currently accepting comments on this plan. You may provide comments directly on the City’s web site at the following link, and we encourage you to do so:
You may also provide your input through a survey that the City View Community Association has set up at the link below. This survey is designed to collect opinions of residents that could be used by the Association in our efforts to represent a consensus of the wishes of the neighborhood. The results of the survey will be presented to council, and (potentially) could be used to determine the need for an appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board.
Please read the petition on preserving 21 Withrow, and PLEASE sign if you agree!
Further information is available on the permanent 21 Withrow tab.
