Week in Review

I will continue to post community events, updates and information on my website (www.CouncillorAllanHubley.ca) and on my Facebook page. Please email me at Allan.Hubley@Ottawa.ca if you would like to be signed up for my electronic newsletter that we will begin to send out monthly this year and as always, please contact me should you have any municipal concerns or issues.

Woodlot Rehabilitation Program

As part of the Woodlot Rehabilitation Program and Ottawa’s Emerald Ash Borer Strategy, Forestry Services will be working in the Katimavik Woods located at 7 Katimavik Road and Cattail Creek Park located at 38 Chimo Drive over the next few months. The rehabilitation program will begin with removal of dead and hazardous trees and will end with a tree planting in 2018. The tree removal work is scheduled to mid January and should be completed by the end of the month. During the removal work and for the duration of this portion of the project, pedestrians will not be allowed to access specific areas of the Katimavik Woods and Cattail Creek Park (EAB signage, barricades and on-site personnel will be restricting access).

Residents living near the removal work will receive a notice in the mail outlining the work to de done.  Further details can be found on my website under the information tab (Parks Environment/EAB)

Winter Parking Restrictions

I would like to remind residents that as the winter months approach and the snow begins to fall, there may be restrictions to on street parking.

Winter overnight parking restrictions take effect if a snow fall of 7cm (5-10cm) is forecast.  During winter overnight parking bans, residents will have free access to covered City-owned parking garages.  For more information about which City garages are free during winter overnight parking bans, visit Ottawa.ca.

Overnight parking bans can be put into effect in Ottawa anytime between Tuesday November 15th, 2016 and Saturday April 1st, 2017.  These restrictions ensure that the City’s snow clearing crews are able to keep Ottawa’s roads safe and clear for pedestrians, cyclists, public transit, and motorists.

During an overnight parking ban, residents are reminded that there is no parking on city streets between 1am and 7am so that crews can plow easily and effectively. Vehicles parked on the street during an overnight parking ban may be ticketed and towed.

Upcoming Events

January 15th: The Oasis in Kanata will be hosting a free information session for caregivers of people with mental illness.  This month’s session “Is ODSP for You?” will be held at 7pm at the Glen Cairn United Church on Abbeyhill Drive.  All are welcome

Thursday February 1st: Time to be determined – Public Information session to be held at the Kanata Recreation Complex Hall A to brief residents about the CWWF Wet Weather Flood Relief upgrades planned for the Appaloosa-Palomino and Milner Downs Bridgestone areas. Details to follow.
