The National Capital Commission (NCC) is planning interim improvements to lands in the LeBreton Flats area adjacent to the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway and Wellington Street at the Booth Street intersection. The concepts that were presented at this open house are the result of a workshop that was held with community representatives and interest groups.

A public open house was held on Wednesday, June 4, 2014. More than 50 people attended this session to comment on and submit their ideas about the three proposed themes.

These three themes were generally well received by the participants in the open house session. According to the vast majority of those who attended, the late 19th century Lilias W. Fleck Fountain, unearthed in 2013 during the soil removal remediation work at LeBreton Flats, should also occupy a significant place on the LeBreton Flats site. Finally, positive and useful comments were collected, which will guide the completion of the design process for this project, which has a potential to become the catalyst for a new long-term vision for this historical site.

A summary of the comments received will be available shortly.
