434 Hilson Avenue: my letter of opposition to the Committee of Adjustment

I've written this morning to the Committee of Adjustment about the application to sub-divide and provide variances to create four, three-storey units at the corner of Hilson and Byron. It goes to hearing tomorrow. I don't write often to the Committee: it's deliberately a hands-off-to-politicians process. But, in this instance, it's not a run-of-the-mill application.

Champlain Oil station proposed for heritage designation

Next Thursday, our Built Heritage Sub-Committee will consider heritage designation for the old cottage gas station at the corner of Richmond Road and Island Park. The report recommending designation is attached below. I support the recommendation, and am looking forward to the debate. This building has significant potential for any number of uses that could be positive. Over the years, I've heard a lot of support for protecting it.

Queensway widening consultation next Tuesday

The final phase of Queensway widening and bridge replacement is the widening of the Queensway to four lanes between Maitland and Carling, rehabilitation of the Merivale bridges, replacement of the noise barriers, and various related works. The province is holding a Public Information Centre to provide an opportunity to review and comment on the proposed works. It will be held on Tuesday, August 11 at JA Dulude Arena, 941 Clyde Avenue, from 4-8pm. Apologies for the late notice, but I've just received it.

Samba in the Park

I've posted some video from last night's Samba in the Park event at McCormick Park. The event's been run for 14 or 15 years now. Originally it was a fundraiser by the Hintonburg Economic Development Committee to help build a new play structure, but each year since Ottawa Samba has come back to entertain residents with their energetic music. This year, the HEDC asked people to bring donations of toiletries for another local initiative, the "Clean Kits" put together by Mimi Golding and others.
