Glebe Active Transportation Plan

Client : Glebe Community Association
Completion Date : 2023


The Glebe, situated south of Downtown Ottawa in the Capital ward, has evolved from Ottawa’s first suburb into a vibrant and attractive neighborhood. The Glebe Community Association drives change by advocating for a livable, sustainable, and inclusive urban environment, particularly focusing on improving active travel safety and connectivity within the neighborhood and to neighboring areas in Ottawa.
Commissioned by the Glebe Community Association, Momentum conducted an Active Transportation Study aimed at identifying short and long-term projects for enhancing pedestrian safety, bike connectivity, accessibility, and integration with surrounding neighborhoods. This involved a detailed analysis of existing infrastructure, coupled with public engagement through surveys, open houses, and workshops led by Re:Public Urbanism to prioritize projects and address community concerns regarding active travel in the Glebe. This action plan equips the Association with actionable projects to collaborate with the city and enhance active travel within the Glebe. Read more on the project in the Glebe Report:
