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 (email@example.com).
By-law & Regulatory Services experienced an overall increase of 8% in total call volume compared to Q1 of 2016.
The full report can be found by clicking 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 (140) however it only comprised 1.5% of the city’s total parking requests. Alternatively, Stittsville’s greatest reflection against the city as a whole were requests regarding parks (3%) which only saw 2 requests.
Learning from these trends means that as a City, we will be better equipped for knowing where to invest resources in 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 well thought-out ideas regarding how to improve our community. You can do so by emailing me at Shad.Qadri@ottawa.ca.
