Community Voice Column – February 7, 2019

Many thanks to everyone who braved the frigid cold to attend my first Kanata North community meeting on January 21 and to the many that joined us online via Facebook Live. Watching our community come together and unite to save our greenspace is incredible! A lot has happened since. Th e city’s legal team has sent a letter to the legal representatives of ClubLink, Minto, and Richcraft to ask that their intentions for the golf course lands be put in writing. For a detailed update on the golf course lands, please visit my website.

On February 21, I am holding a community meeting with my colleagues Councillor Gower and Councillor Hubley to discuss the 2019 budget. I encourage you all to attend to learn more and to share your ideas and concerns.

Many of you have reached out and voiced your frustrations with OC Transpo, specifically routes 63 and 64. I have met with city staff and have asked them to review the routes and make suggestions for improvements. A survey will be made available to all residents in the near future. I will also be holding a separate community meeting soon to discuss this further.

A tremendous amount of development is planned for Kanata North. Our team recently received new applications, which can be accessed via my website.

Feedback on the one-sided seasonal parking restrictions pilot program has been very positive. Fallengale Crescent and Sweetwater Lane have recently had restrictions put in place. Also, at the request of the community, a year-round restriction has been obtained for Pepperidge Way.

If you are experiencing issues with snow removal or parking restrictions and are unsure of when to call 3-1-1, please visit my website.
