KS – August 10, 2017


Week in Review

It is my personal belief that there are some people we meet in our lives that are very special and it is an honour to have met them.  Cecil Kavenaugh was a business person in Ottawa and Kanata for six decades.  We can only imagine how many jobs he created over the years.  He worked for years with his son Don and other family members at AAA kavtech on Edgewater and was known as an honest business person by everyone.  Cecil passed away last week and I would like to publicly thank his family for sharing him with our community all these years and I believe he will be an inspiration for many for years to come.


Wild Parsnip

Wild Parsnip is a noxious weed that is commonly found within the city of Ottawa in areas of uncultivated land, roadside ditches, nature trails, as well as surrounding rural and residential properties. Wild Parsnip sap contains chemicals that may cause skin and eye irritation and make the skin prone to burning and blistering when exposed to the sun.

Earlier this summer the City’s Parks Department has sprayed at locations around the ward where Wild Parsnip has been known to grow and signs were posted in areas that have been sprayed. Within the next week or so as the plant reaches maturity, it will dry up and no longer produce the sap that causes skin irritations.

As always please watch for Wild Parsnip when outdoors this summer and continue to report Wild Parsnip on City property by calling 3-1-1. For more information please visit ottawa.ca.


On-street Parking Regulations

As per the City of Ottawa’s Parking Bylaw, (2003-530), all residential side streets whether signed or unsigned are subject to the 3 hour parking regulation between 7am and 7pm. The new proposed changes to this By Law would allow for 6 hour on street parking on weekends and holidays during 7am-7pm.

The City does not post signs for the 3 hour on street parking bylaw, as all residential streets in most of Ontario have a 3 hour parking restriction, unless stated otherwise.

In all residential areas, outside of the downtown core, the on street parking bylaw is enforced on a complaint-basis only.

The City of Ottawa offers special consideration parking passes for residents who are restricted from accessing parking on their property due to infrastructure work or work they are undertaking on their property. This allows them to park on the street for longer than three hours. You can apply for special consideration parking passes at a City of Ottawa Client Service Centre.
