Monahan Landing Woodlot

 

Dear Resident,

 

Attached is the proposed concept plan for the Monahan Landing Woodlot. The plan for this park is to maintain the integrity of the woodlot while allowing people to move through the site with minimal impact to the forest floor and existing residents, and to plan for tapping of the 150 mature maple trees that can be found in the Woodlot.

The plan currently proposes an informal path to go as directly as possible between the two walkway blocks at Meadowbreeze, and Summitview (the layout will be done on site to reduce the impact as much as possible on the existing trees). A page wire fence (a very light style of fencing) along the North property boundary will be installed and a chain link fence along the east and west boundaries (fences are to be .15m on the City side of the property boundary).

There will be an accessible entrance with seating off the south entry (Pinelock St) and  there will be benches installed and other features.  The plan is to engage the community to participate in tapping the trees for the production of maple syrup. The sap is currently proposed to be processed off site.  The logistics surrounding the tapping of the trees is still being worked out and once we have a final plan, I will be sure to update you. The developer will complete the work in the park and construction is scheduled for this summer.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the woodlot, please don’t hesitate to contact me via email at Allan.Hubley@ottawa.ca or by phone at 613-580-2752.

 

Respectfully,

Councillor Allan Hubley
