For now, the Ottawa sign remains on York St with Inspiration Village, but once Inspiration Village gets taken down, the Ottawa sign will be on the move!
It’s not going far though, just up the street on York closer to Sussex. The plan for the permanent spot includes room for some seasonal decor, seating, and some lighting for those who want to take photos.
Plus the backdrop of Sussex and the steps leading to Parliament Hill will make for an even better backdrop.
The new spot will take away 20 parking spots on York, but the Byward Market BIA says it’s a worthwhile trade off.
If all goes well the new permanent spot could be ready by Thanksgiving. The last day to check out Inspiration village is September 4th. The parking spaces used to create the space will be freed up by September 20th.
