Citizens for Responsible Development Ottawa (CRDO) believes that urban growth, renewal and rejuvenation are important for the City of Ottawa. However, CRDO sees an urgent need for more effective consultation, better planning and more accountability. We strive to document community stories and foster a public dialogue surrounding issues of community, urban planning and social justice so that we can better serve the interests of our communities.
CRDO was originally founded by a resident in whose home was impacted by a development project adjacent to his properties in Lowertown, Ottawa. The blog began as a way to document his and his neighbours’ individual and collective experiences.
