LRT to KanataSooner Rather than Later - 2

Following is the email sent by Rod MacLean supporting and thanking Councillor Hubley



Thank you Councillor

It is good to see that transit service to the far west end of Ottawa is not being allowed to be forgotten at City Hall.

We may be ‘beyond the fringe’, but we are still part of the amalgamated City of Ottawa and should experience the benefits of LRT just as other areas of Ottawa will be doing long before 2031.

Our tax dollars will be contributing to the City’s interest payments to bring LRT to much of the rest of this City.   

We in Katimavik Hazeldean support your push for LRT to come to Kanata/Stittsville as soon as possible.

Regards

LRT for Kanata Sooner Rather than Later


the following motion was passed by the Finance and Economic Development Committee

:
Item / Article: #7

Re: STAGE 2 LIGHT RAIL TRANSIT (LRT) ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT
AND FUNCTIONAL DESIGN REPORT – ITEM 7

Moved by / Motion de: Councillor Hubley

WHEREAS Council’s next review and update of the Official Plan (OP), Transportation
Master Plan (TMP) and Infrastructure Master Plan (IMP) will extend the City’s planning
horizon beyond 2031; and,
WHEREAS the affordability model established within the 2011 LRFP for Transit which
establish priority projects for each phase of 2013 TMP will be updated as a matter of
course in coordination with these updates; and,
WHEREAS there are no light rail transit (LRT) projects west of Bayshore planned within
the affordable envelope to 2031; and

WHEREAS the 2013 TMP identified an Affordable Rapid Transit and Transit Priority
(RTTP) Network that included the Stage 2 Light Rail Transit (LRT) project as well as a
number of (at-grade and grade-separated) bus rapid transit (BRT) extensions; namely,
the West Transitway (from Bayshore Station to west of Moodie Drive, and a second
extension from March Road to Terry Fox Station), the Baseline Transit Corridor (from
Baseline to Heron stations), and the Kanata North Transitway (from Corkstown Road to
Solandt Road), as well as an additional $200 million in transit priority projects; and,

WHEREAS recent federal and provincial budgets have significantly increased the
availability of transit infrastructure funding subsequent to the 2013 TMP analysis; and,
WHEREAS the TMP did not give any rankings or timelines as to which BRT or LRT
projects would be implemented beyond 2031; and,
WHEREAS the next update of the TMP creates an opportunity to review growth patterns for employment and residential growth against projections across the City including Kanata;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that staff be directed to fully assess the feasibility and relative priority of rapid transit investment in the west and develop an option to provide a rapid transit rail solution to Kanata at the earliest opportunity, respecting the affordability model established within the 2011 LRFP for Transit, and that this work inform the Transportation Master Plan update and including a review of projects currently within the Affordable RTTP Network.
