    Our Peterborough Sport and Wellness Centre now has a Poolpod poolside platform lift helping to remove barriers to pool access.

A Happy New Year Message to Otonabee Ward

About the Otonabee Ward Website

This site is intended as a resource to engage, inform and inspire all residents of Otonabee Ward 1 (OW1).  Think of it as YOUR website. 

Please explore the site to find answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ), quick links to online reporting, or to learn about upcoming meetings as well as local events happening inside our Ward and across our city and region.  The ‘Happening Now’ sidebar also provides public service notices and links to the most recent information impacting you and your family.

To learn more about my background and council portfolios, please visit the Meet Kim page or better yet, visit the Calendar Page and join me at the next online public event.

The OW1 website also hosts a blog where you have the opportunity to have a voice and engage your neighbours by writing about upcoming projects, highlighting special places and the wonderful people who live within our community.  See the sidebar to connect to the most recent blog posts or use the Navigation Menu at the top of this home page to access the full list of posts and commenting policy.  It’s your opportunity to contribute something valuable, so please let me know if you would like to submit your own post! 

A unique feature of the OW1 website is the Ward map (please see below).  The OW1 map offers a fun, easy and interactive way to describe and publicly share places and projects you feel are important.   Instructions for using the map can be found under the Home page menu: How to Use the Map.  Visit the Contact Page and email me if you have any questions about the ward boundary which is highlighted on the map in green for your convenience. Please note that all markers are submitted to the website administrator prior to appearing on the map. Once your marker is submitted, an email will be forwarded to the administrator with your request and you will then see a message at the top of the map informing that your marker is awaiting approval.  


This website employs accessibility features that I hope you will find helpful. Site accessibility information  is located  on the Accessibility page.  If you have feedback on how to make the site better or more accessible, please email your feedback to Kim Zippel.
