Welcome to the Website of Councillor Kim Zippel


SARS-CoV-2 without background

I hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy.  We will get through this together and I am looking forward to re-connecting with you in person once it is safe to do so.

UPDATE: COVID-19 vaccines for children aged 5 to 11

I want to share with you the exciting news – you may already be aware – of the availability of the COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 5 to 11.  Appointments can be booked locally for those eligible children in Peterborough and area starting  on Tuesday, Nov. 23, 2021.

Appointments will be offered Mondays through Thursdays and on Saturdays at the Healthy Planet Arena (formerly the Evinrude Centre), as well as at schools throughout the county and City of Peterborough over the coming weeks. Residents can book a COVID-19 vaccine appointment:

More information is available on the website of Peterborough Public Health here.

In the meantime, in addition to links posted in Happening Now on the home page, remember these contact information and phone numbers are for you in case you need to reach these organizations, agencies, or services during the pandemic.  My goal is to keep the list updated with new information, all in one spot on my website, so you can avoid time searching around for these helpful community resources.

Thank you for getting both of your vaccines and for continuing to follow public health guidelines as we enter Step 3!


About the Otonabee Ward Website

This site is intended as a tool to engage, inform and inspire all residents of Otonabee Ward 1 (OW1).  Think of it as YOUR website.  Try it out and then provide feedback as to how we can make it better!  Please explore the site to find answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ), learn about upcoming meetings as well as local events happening inside our Ward. To learn more about your Otonabee Ward councillor, Kim Zippel, please visit the Meet Kim page or better yet, visit our calendar page and join Kim at her next public event.

The website also hosts a blog where you have the opportunity to engage your neighbours  and write about upcoming projects, share personal poems or highlight the wonderful people who live within our community.  It is your opportunity to contribute something valuable! 

The Ward map offers a fun, easy and interactive way to describe and publicly share places and projects you feel are important. Black markers indicate the boundaries of the ward and you can place your own markers on the map too! Instructions for using the map can be found under the Home page menu: How to Use the Map . Please visit the contact page if you have any questions about the ward boundary. 

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 with your request and you will see a message at the top of the map informing that your marker is awaiting approval.  Please be patient as there may be several requests.
