KHCA Minutes February 3, 2014



                                            Minutes
Rod welcomed all                                                                             Present: Councillor Hubley, Rod MacLean,  Art Lamarche, David O’Neill, Michelle Wright (Councillor’s Office), Helen Roper, Jan McGuire, ,Kul Kapoor, Tom & Henne Kahwa, Elizabeth O`Driscoll    Regrets: Marc Labreche, Cheryl Teeter, Nilay Ertemur, Maureen Taylor, Christine Brown, Teresa Frechette,         
Councillor Hubley remarks The distance to residences in the Medical Marihuana Zoning Report was indeed short but medical marihuana production facilities will be restricted to area already zoned for industrial uses outside Kanata.                                                                                                    
 In the discussion of the second sidewalk on McCurdy Drive, many residents oppose the project while others support the proposal.                                                                                                 Councillor Hubley stated that he would not support the second sidewalk on McCurdy Drive unless two-thirds of the homeowners residing along McCurdy Drive supported that construction.  A petition will be circulated in 2016 and as well there would be a public meeting in 2016 before the City budget is prepared.    The 2nd sidewalk in our amalgamated City is required since McCurdy Drive is classed as a collector road.                                                                                     As well because the posting of signage requesting 30 kmh on McCurdy Drive on the hill approaching the Schools and allowing cars to park on the South side of McCurdy  -  combined to slow traffic, the signage  and parking on McCurdy will be a permanent feature of the non-winter months.    Signage will be set away from legal 40 kmh speed limit signs..                                                              
 Further traffic lights will be installed at the McCurdy/Tamblyn intersection with Castlefrank Road.    This project will include sensors accommodate vehicles entering the intersection from side streets and a streetlight on the Northwest corner of the intersection to better light pedestrians.                          Minutes of the December 2nd meeting were approved as revised   
President Update:  Frostbite Advisories will be circulated as received;  With over 300 riders for 2013 Wagon Ride and presentations of Lighten the Night  awards were both a  success;   Rink volunteers are always needed for  Katimavik Elementary School contact  Katimavk_rink@live.ca and for Young’s Pond  contact romansrutek@gmail.com;    International Women’s Day Celebration will be on March 5th at Don Cherry’s 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm; Widen Driveway in Suburbs to ½ frontage area passed Planning Committee;    Medical Marihuana Zoning report (150 meters to residences);  See Councillor Hubley’s E-Newsletter about parking changes you may request and for existing regulations please see: www.councillorallanhubley.ca  at   community tab;

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. Please note that overnight parking is not permitted at any time in City of Ottawa facility parking lots.
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. Veuillez noter que le stationnement de nuit est interdit en tout temps dans les parcs de stationnement des installations de la Ville d'Ottawa.
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.
