Overnight parking restriction in effect

Environment Canada has forecast snow accumulation of 7 cm or more for the Ottawa area. As a result, overnight parking restrictions are now in effect from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. across Ottawa. This overnight parking restriction will remain in effect until the City announces it has been lifted.
During an overnight parking restriction, vehicles are banned from parking on any city street so that crews can clear them easily and effectively. Vehicles that remain parked on the street during an overnight parking restriction will be ticketed. On-street parking permit holders are exempt from this restriction.
The City of Ottawa's priority for snow clearing is to ensure that streets are clear and safe for motorists, public transit, pedestrians and cyclists.

L'interdiction de stationner la nuit est en vigueur

Environnement Canada a prévu une accumulation d'au moins 7 cm de neige dans la région d'Ottawa. Par conséquent, il est actuellement interdit de laisser des véhicules stationnés dans les rues de la ville entre 1 h et 7 h du matin. Cette interdiction demeurera en vigueur jusqu'à ce que la Ville annonce qu'elle a été levée.
Nous tenons à rappeler aux résidents que lorsque l'interdiction de stationner la nuit est en vigueur, il n'est pas permis de laisser des véhicules en stationnement dans les rues de la ville. Cette mesure vise à donner la possibilité aux équipes de déneigement de déblayer les rues facilement et efficacement. Les propriétaires de véhicules garés dans les rues alors que les restrictions relatives au stationnement de nuit en hiver sont en vigueur recevront une contravention. L'interdiction ne s'applique pas aux titulaires de permis de stationnement sur rue.
La priorité de la Ville d'Ottawa, pour ce qui concerne le déneigement, consiste à s'assurer que les rues sont dégagées et sécuritaires pour les automobilistes, les véhicules de transport en commun, les piétons et les cyclistes.

Below is the text of an email from Councillor Hubley’s staff.
Please find the information that has been gathered regarding your inquiries below:
1.  Are the results of the Eagleson Pedestrian Safety Survey available?        The analysis is not yet complete, but we should have more information soon. This was a study of multiple intersections in the ward, including Castlefrank/Tamblyn and one in Bridlewood.
2.  Has the report on the May 3rd traffic count at the Castlefrank/Tamblyn & McCurdy intersection been released?             Currently the intersection only meets 90% of the warrants for signalization. Councillor Hubley is working with staff on future options for this location, as he believes that we should only be a year or two away from action at this intersection.

3.  Now that the flood mitigation project from Belleview on to Barrow Crescent is completed, what is the status of the Vanstone & Belleview area flood mitigation project?         We have a few projects at various stages in that vicinity:
There was a project that was undertaken this past summer to construct a new stormwater overland flow route from Belleview Drive/Vanstone Drive via Barrow Crescent.  All the work on this project has been completed as of mid October – except for some minor deficiencies to address and the installation of a newly requested traffic control gate system at Belleview Drive and the asphalt pathway between Belleview Drive and Kakulu Drive.  We are still coordinating with the contractor for that installation.
The project leader is currently working on plans for future work in the area.  His project will be re-grading and re-instating the ditches along Vanstone Drive, Belleview Drive, Oakview Road and Pineview Road to improve overland conveyance.  The existing culverts will be upsized and replaced where necessary.  These roads are currently being surveyed and the design will be finalized over the winter.  We are currently expecting to have a tender out in the spring for construction in 2013.
 4.  Has there been any progress on to letter requesting intensification developments “pay the cost of infrastructure upgrades that intensification would make necessary”?        Pursuant to our phone conversation, please let me know if you locate the original document and I would be happy to investigate.
5.  Did the recreation department respond to the proposal for a pathway from Kakulu about Barrow West to Pickard Park?          From the PM, ROW Information and Approvals:
The parkland between Pickford and Kakulu is City owned Park. There does not appear to be a ROW linking Millman to this park.
I have copied staff in our Transportation planning group and Recreation Planning for any comments they may have on this request.       From Transportation:  This pathway, while a nice park amenity, would provide only marginal pedestrian transportation benefit over the existing sidewalks on Kakulu and Pickford.  It is not a facility we would pursue from a Transportation Planning perspective as it would be recreational in nature. 
Answer from Recreation is still pending.
6.  Has the date and time of the meeting on upgrading Young’s Pond Park been set?       Not at this time. We will be doing more work on the liner next spring, and a meeting will be set up following that work.
The Belleview second coat of paving was the prime focus of discussion.       Residents paid extra amounts to the City of Kanata because the developer went bankrupt before doing much in the Belleview-Vanstone area and the City of Kanata agreed to provide water, sewer and roads in exchange for cash either lump sum or annual extra amount with taxes.    This was a contract.     
As it happened, the second coat of paving which is normal process in paving was never done, because the last homes were not finished until well after Kanata was amalgamated into the City of Ottawa.     
It was proposed that the second paving coat become part of the next step in the flood mitigation project.        The above information from Councillor Hubley’s Office shows that the City flood mitigation plan is to clear the ditches and replace the culverts on the Belleview area Streets.       While the ditch work need not mar the street surfaces, applying the second coat of paving on those streets so as to both meet the original contract and to ensure that the streets will not be left damaged, was seen as logical.    
Councillor Hubley’s representative was to find out from the City’s manager on the Belleview area flood mitigation whether a second coat of paving was being included in the flood mitigation plan.        
Further, having a public open house on the next stage in the project provides residents with the opportunity to draw attention to refinements that could improve the project such as the right angle turn on The North end of Belleview Drive and the intersection of Belleview Drive with Pickford Road where hedges limit a driver’s view onto Pickford.
It was pointed out that there is a missing section of sidewalk on the North side of Kakulu Road between Pickford Road and Eagleson Road and that there is a gap in street lighting on Chimo Drive where Cattail Park and Larsen Park meet either side of Chimo Drive
The status of the request for a sidewalk from the Shearer Park Bus Stop to Drainie Drive was not included in the inquiry of the Councillor’s Office because the matter is being assessed by City staff  

Meeting adjourned at 9:00 pm

Building A Liveable Ottawa 2031




“We need to prepare for the future while preserving what makes Ottawa such a great place to live – our distinct and vibrant neighbourhoods” says Mayor Jim Watson quoted in the media release  on Building A Liveable Ottawa 2031.

Residents can get online to have their say on the future of Ottawa with Building a Liveable Ottawa 2031 – a city-wide review of land-use, transportation and infrastructure policies that feed into the City’s Official Plan, Transportation Plan, Infrastructure Master Plan and the Cycling and Pedestrian Plans.

 The focus of the project and public engagement goes beyond a visioning exercise. It deals directly with proposed solutions to 12 current planning issues.   The issues are intensification, urban land uses, protecting the countryside, creating people friendly environments, transit oriented development, employment land review, infrastructure needs, public transit, streets that have room for all modes of transportation, healthy transportation, reducing dependency on cars, and affordability. 

Each of these planning issues is profiled at Liveable Ottawa The site features a summary of each issue and each proposal, a video, and feedback mechanisms – including a survey that is available until March 1. Residents are urged to review the information before providing their survey responses.



In addition to the online consultations, Open Houses will also take place.
