New names for streets within Lansdowne Park

The names of two new private road names within a revitalized Lansdowne Park were approved by the planning committee at its meeting on Tuesday.

Orleans ward Councillor Bob Monett admitted Exhibition Way and Marché Way are a bit ordinary for the overhauled site.

"The names are generic because Exhibition Way, well the exhibition is not there anymore...I would have liked to have seen honouring someone, using Frank Clair as an example or a city builder, someone who was prominent in that community for a long time."

But ultimately, the city and its partner, the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group, seemed to agree.

"If OSEG is comfortable with this, and it seems like the members around the table are comfortable with it, I guess we'll go with it," he said.

Full city council must approve the new names.
