Terms of Reference

On July 29, 2013, a Special Housing Committee (SHC) was created to deal with the question of the university’s plans for residences off campus. ASH VP, Robert Forbes, will act as coordinator for:

1. Short term ASH response to the university’s recent correspondence (http://www.ash-acs.ca/univ-ottawa-residences/), to gather more information and maintain constructive dialogue.
2. Short-to-medium term strategy to directly respond to this initiative as well as articulate the community’s vision for Sandy Hill.

A number of excellent ideas have already appeared on these subjects and more will be fleshed out in the coming days.

Needs

1. Board members to help with item one, above.
2. A variety of volunteers to work on strategy and steps, particularly for item two. If you would like to volunteer or otherwise contribute to this effort, please contact us at info@ash-acs.ca.
3. Contact details for potential external consultants, planning, legal, other university, campaign etc. are also sought.
4. The inclusion of other stakeholders including: other community people, our councillor and city staff, other levels of government, alumni, heritage, schools, businesses, etc.
