Welcome to the Katimavik-Hazeldean Community Association!


Thank you to those who attended the regular KHCA meeting on June 4, 2018.  The attendance was less than we have had recently, probably owing to the seasonal wind-up of so many school and community activities... and of course the nicer weather.

We heard brief reports on many recent subjects;  bus stop improvements, railings to be repaired, streetlight maintenance, and the wrapup of our recent corporate fundraising campaign.  We hope to have a presence at several community events occuring over the summer, with our main focus being the Canada Day in Kanata celebrations.  Be sure to drop by our first-ever KHCA tent and have some cake!  Those who are already members or who become members ($10 per family per year), will receive a lapel pin commemorating the 200th anniversary of the founding of Hazeldean.

A special shoutout to Hayley and Peter who have started Katimakids and turned it into something awesome in the span of two months!  Imagine a vast field full of kids and their parents having fun, where before there was nothing.

All residents of Katimavik-Hazeldean are invited.  Please consider formally joining our association by either filling out and mailing the form under the "Join the KHCA" tab above, or just by showing up for a meeting and purchasing your membership then - you will then be able to vote on the actions you and your neighbours care to bring forward.  The cost is $10. per household per year.

Thank you,

Where is the LRT to Kanata?

Where is the LRT to Kanata?
The KHCA made a presentation to the City's Transportation Committee on May 2nd. We asked them to please get moving on the project as far as Terry Fox. This would cut the cost of the Kanata LRT extension by 2/3 and make it easier to find funding. Why should we have to wait so it can be built in a big arc past the Canadian Tire Place to Stittsville? Why is our long-established neighbourhood one of the few in the City still waiting for a dedicated public transportation corridor of any kind (even for buses)? Consider: Soon we will lose the Kanata commuter buses going directly to downtown. A transfer to the train will be necessary at Tunney's Pasture. This will make our commute longer. And with no LRT to Kanata funding approved it will mean those living in the villages and towns east of Ottawa will enjoy a better commute while we must wait, wait and wait.

Watch Out for Mosquitoes and Ticks

Watch Out for Mosquitoes and Ticks
Rod rightly reminds his neighbours to please empty standing water in your yard to reduce the spread of Mosquitos. Please also watch out for ticks on pets and humans as they can carry Lyme disease.
