The City of Ottawa’s Commemorative Naming Committee is conducting public consultation on four separate naming proposals including two proposals in Stittsville. The proposals are:
- A proposal to name a future park located within the Porter Place development the “William Bradley Park”
- A proposal to name a future park located within the Potter’s Key Subdivision the “Allan Frederick Moore Park”
- A proposal to name a portion of the Richardson Ridge Recreational Trail system in the “Lyndall Winters Trail”
- A proposal to name a room within the John G. Mlacak Centre the “Susan Ruth Finch Meeting Room”
William Bradley Park (Ward 6 – Stittsville)
In recognition of the historical significance and extensive community service record of Mr. William Bradley to the Community of Stittsville, a proposal to name a future park in Ward 6 in his honour has been submitted to the City of Ottawa’s Commemorative Naming Committee.
William Bradley left the Canadian Air Force in 1943 to run his late father’s business, a local Stittsville general store which led him to a career in the Stittsville retail food industry for 46 years. Mr. Bradley was actively involved in his community by way of various volunteer initiatives including the community’s volunteer fire department.
Allan Frederick Moore Park (Ward 6 – Stittsville)
In recognition of Allan Frederick Moore’s historical significance to the community, the City of Ottawa has been asked to name a future park, located at 611 Hazeldean Road within the Potter’s Key Subdivision, “Allan Frederick Moore Park”.
Allan Frederick Moore was born and raised in Ottawa, served in the Navy in World War 1 and worked as a lawyer in Ottawa from the 1930’s until his passing in 1969. As a member of the Queen’s Council, Mr. Moore was involved in many major real estate transactions in Ottawa throughout his career.
Lyndall Winters Trail (Ward 4 – Kanata North)
In recognition of Lyndall Winter’s excellence, courage and exceptional service to the citizens of Ottawa as well as his extensive community service record, the City of Ottawa has been asked to name a portion of the Richardson Ridge Recreational Trail system in Kanata North the “Lyndall Winters Trail”.
Lyndall Winters made significant contributions to the City of Ottawa and his country by way of his illustrious and lengthy career with the RCMP. Throughout his retirement, Mr. Winters redirected his focus to the advocacy of the preservation of the environment through various volunteer initiatives within his community.
Susan Ruth Finch Meeting Room (Ward 4 – Kanata North)
In recognition of Susan Ruth Finch’s extensive community service, the City of Ottawa has been asked to name a room within the John G. Mlacak Centre, located at 2500 Campeau Drive, the “Susan Ruth Finch Meeting Room”.
As long time resident of Kanata North, Ms. Finch developed strong ties to her community while teaching ceramics classes at the John G. Mlacak Centre, helping residents explore their creativity.
Each application will be undergoing a 30-day consultation period and pending committee approval, will then be presented to the CPSC and City Council for final approval.
I am always pleased to see more commemorative naming proposals submitted for Stittsville residents and I highly encourage all residents to take a moment to their their comments and thoughts before the deadline of July 18th, 2017.
