  • WHEREAS there has been an increase in the number of problematic occupied and unoccupied properties in Ottawa; and

    WHEREAS the City of Edmonton developed a Problematic Properties webpage to help residents navigate these types of complaints or concerns and Ottawa residents could also benefit from access to similar information;
    THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT staff explore the feasibility of creating a Problematic Property page on the City of Ottawa website which includes the
    definition of what is and what isn’t a problematic property, a link to 311 and other resources, a flowchart to assist communities, and a list of departments involved in a problematic property.
