City seeking public input on commemorative naming proposals

The City of Ottawa Commemorative Naming Committee is conducting public consultations on four commemorative naming proposals and comments are being requested! Of the four proposals, one of which is in Stittsville.

In recognition of the Kavanagh family’s historical significance to the community of Stittsville, a proposal to name a future park at the southwest corner intersection of Hazeldean Road and Stittsville Main StreetKavanagh Green” has been submitted. For nearly a century, Kavanagh family members have made important contributions to the community of Stittsville and surrounding areas which include owning and operating the popular Stittsville Flea Market for 25 years and volunteering with the Food Bank, Holy Spirit Church and the Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice.
