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. 1 Refer to: Vision Strategic Directions Identify Street Typology from: 2 Prioritize Objectives Based on: e Informed ecisions 3 Plan of Streets aluate Using: gic Directions ility Criteria Vision Plans Prepare Test Scenarios Using: Street Design Toolkit and Complete Street Design Solutions 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.

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.
