Happy spring! It’s been such an exciting time here in Orléans and it looks like it will continue in the coming months. First, there’s the LRT expansion, slated to be completed by 2024 with riders on board in 2025. The City of Ottawa has selected artists who will be featured in the various stations and we’re thrilled to see who they selected and can’t wait to see their creations. But, we’re even more excited to see how the ease of traffic to the east end – that’s been a long time in coming – will have an impact on the businesses in the Heart of
Orléans BIA. Did you know that we are the very first suburb to
get the LRT in their neighbourhood?

exciting cross-marketing initiatives and new ways of doing business. Read the article in this month’s issue to find out more.
In this issue, we’re truly humbled to share the reflections of two business owners about the benefits of membership in the Heart of Orléans BIA. One of them is a full member and the
other is an affiliate member. We’re blown away by their support and the words they shared. Can you tell we’re blushing?
