Citizens for Responsible Development Ottawa (CRDO) believes that growth is 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 founded in 2014 by a group of resident in whose homes were impacted by a development project adjacent to their properties in Lowertown, Ottawa. The blog began as a way to document the neighbours’ individual and collective experiences. It has since grown to be a volunteer-run platform.
