Bylaw Report Q3


I would like to take a moment to supply residents with a breakdown of the quarterly by-law regulatory service request report.

Every three months, by-law services releases a ward-by-ward summary of general request types. These requests range from a multitude of services offered by calling or emailing 3-1-1 (
By-law & Regulatory Services experienced an overall increase of 19% in total call volume compared to Q3 of 2016.

The full report can be found here and Stittsville’s individual report can be found here.


As you can observe, parking was the most-requested by-law item within our ward (451) however it only comprised 1.6% of the total city’s parking requests (consistent with last year’s statistics at Q3). Alternatively, Stittsville’s greatest reflection in comparison to the city as a whole were requests regarding parks (4.4%) which saw 71 requests for the first ¾ of the year.

Learning from these trends helps the City of Ottawa to ensure that proper investments are made into resources for the future.

I encourage residents to take a moment and see what trends they can spot. Of course, as your City Councillor, I am always keen to hear your comments and ideas regarding how to improve our community. You can do so by emailing me at
