Downtown Moves

25 Strategies with Guidelines to enhance mobility on downtown streets.

Transforming Ottawa's Streets

DOWNTOWN MOVES:

TRANSFORMING OTTAWA'S STREETS

wntown Ottawa represent the most significant public spaces
Ottawa's Central Business District (CBD). These streets are
d by over 100,000 workers and 7.8 million tourists annually.
ttawa retained Delcan and The Planning Partnership to guide
rban design and infrastructure renewal of approximately 30 km
streets in downtown Ottawa.

This study followed a comprehensive six-phase planning and consultation
process that fostered meaningful stakeholder and public engagement through
workshops and focus groups.
Downtown Moves supports investment in complete streets in Ottawa's
downtown to foster a lively, world-class, Capital City. It identifies ways to make
walking, cycling and transit more comfortable and convenient by restoring
a balance among all street users and directing streetscape improvements.
The team developed a new 'Street Design Decision-Making Framework' to
guide and simplify decision-making on the design of downtown streets and
public spaces, and the "Pedestrian Level-of-Service" (LOS), a measure that
ranks pedestrian comfort and freedom of movement on a six-level scale.
These innovative tools can be replicated by municipalities across Canada.
The study's "Street Design Toolkit" provides a variety of best practices in
sustainable design, including bicycle sharing stations, sustainable planting
and integrated accessibility for all.
A series of 13 "Vital Moves" were identified and prioritized - these moves
represent physical transformations to downtown streets in order to fulfill the
Vision and Strategic Directions of the study.
Downtown Moves was unanimously approved by the City of Ottawa's
Transportation Committee and subsequently by City Council, Master Plan and
Transportation Master Plan. Within one month of the approval of Downtown
Moves by Council the City initiated the study's first 'Vital Move' with the
redesign of Queen Street. By following the vision outlined in Downtown
Moves, the City will be able to meet its ambitious target of 64% walking and
cycling trips within downtown by 2031.

EN_ Downtown Moves guides the renewal of streetscapes, urban
design and infrastructure renewal of approximately 30 km of
municipal streets in downtown Ottawa. As well as setting out to
enhance street environments, the study informs the City on how
to best capitalize on the implementation of the Confederation
Line light-rail transit (LRT), and seamlessly integrate stations at
street level.
The six-phase planning and consultation process engaged the
public through workshops and a "Mobility Summit" lecture series
that attracted broad participation. The planners also pioneered
research into "Pedestrian Level-of-Service" (LOS), a measure
that ranks pedestrian comfort and freedom of movement on a
six-level scale. The final study included a Street Design DecisionMaking Framework and an Implementation Strategy, with
preliminary cost calculations, which included prioritizing 13 Vital
Moves. Within one month of the approval of Downtown Moves
by Council, the City initiated the study's first Vital Move with the
redesign of Queen Street. By following this vision, the City will
meet its ambitious target of 64 per cent walking and cycling trips
within downtown by 2031.
46 LANDSCAPES PAYSAGES

FR_ Downtown Moves encadre le renouvellement du
paysage de rue, de l'urbanisme et de l'infrastructure
sur 30 km de rues dans le centre-ville d'Ottawa. Cette
étude cherche à améliorer l'environnement de rue tout en
montrant à la ville comment profiter de l'arrivée de la ligne
de train léger sur rail Confédération pour fondre les stations
dans le décor.
La démarche de planification et de consultation en
six étapes proposait des ateliers aux citoyens et des
conférences sur la mobilité. Les urbanistes ont aussi créé
une étude pour mesurer, sur une échelle de six, le confort
et la liberté de mouvement des piétons. Le rapport final
propose un cadre décisionnel pour l'aménagement des
rues et une stratégie de mise en œuvre avec un budget
préliminaire couvrant 13 priorités. Moins d'un mois après
l'approbation de Downtown Moves au conseil municipal,
la ville mettait en branle la première étape, soit la refonte
de la rue Queen. En appliquant le plan Downtown Moves,
Ottawa atteindra son but d'avoir 64 % des déplacements au
centre-ville faits à vélo ou à pied d'ici 2031.
