Proposed changes in Kitchissippi to OC Transpo routes

No surprise to anyone, in roughly mid-2018 the Confederation Line light rail will begin running between Tunney’s Pasture and Blair Station. This will be the beginning of a profound transformation in how residents of Ottawa move around the City, and there will be multiple changes to how public transit offered by OC Transpo will work.

Bayview MUP pathway paving in June

I've been advised that beginning as soon as June 5 at 9:30 am, paving will begin on the multi-use pathway at Bayview Station to and from the new culvert. The paving is expected to take approximately a week, during which the configuration will again temporarily change.

During the paving, riders and pedestrians will need to use the MUP running just north of Albert (MUP#6) to bypass the construction area.

Ottawa Community Housing buys Oak street lands

I was thrilled today to be part of a major announcement with respect to affordable housing and the use of the Oak Street complex. This afternoon, Ottawa Community Housing has announced that it has purchased the 7.26 acres of vacant land north of Gladstone between the O-Train and Preston Street for $7 million from the federal government – less than market price. The land will be used to build a new mixed use development that will include mixed income housing, retail, commercial and green spaces.

190 Richmond Road (Superstore) at Planning next week

The proposal for two new six-storey rental buildings to be build by Choice REIT on the site of the Superstore will be at Planning Committee for its approval next Tuesday. I am supportive of this proposal after extensive consultation and given its compliance with the high-level plans for the neighbourhood. There will be a new park built on the Superstore site with the development, and I'll continue to work with the community on pedestrian and cycling access through the site, as well as the new park layout.

Encouraging news from Queen's Park on OMB reform

Today, Queen’s Park has announced a series of reforms to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB). For years, residents have justifiably railed at the OMB’s role in land-planning in the province. Arguably, it systemically favours developers in the face of local land-planning decisions. It is prohibitively expensive and time consuming, and is a de facto spur to the abdication of accountability for local Councils.
