Week in Review
Last Friday, I was with our Mayor when he announced LRT would be coming a lot closer to Kanata and a lot sooner. I want to thank Sueling Ching of the West Ottawa Board of Trade for joining me and all their members for their strong support in moving this plan along so quickly.
18 months ago the plan was to study or look at going beyond Bayshore in 2031. I then moved a motion to take a look at advancing the plan.
Our MP Karen McCrimmon then found federal dollars to get an Environmental Assessment done by 2019 moving that planning horizon even closer.
Now we have Moodie added to Phase 2 and a plan to have trains running by 2023.
OC Transpo will now be able to revisit the current Kanata routes to get you to Moodie without the transfers that otherwise would have been needed.
More on the benefits of this announcement to come.
As a 2017 project I am pleased to invite you to join me in documenting the people, places and activities that make Kanata South a great place to live, work and play.
Please send me your ideas of who you think should be highlighted in our book and why.
We will gather all your responses and compile them into a memory book available to everyone and placed in the Library for future generations to have a snapshot of what made Kanata South special in 2017.
Here are some questions we would love to know:
- Who do you think should be highlighted in our book and why? Who makes our community special? Could be a teacher, a business owner, etc.
- What is your favourite part of Kanata South? Could be an area, park, business, favourite place to eat etc.
- Do you have a special memory that took place in Kanata South? Tell us about it! Ideas could include Grand Openings, special events, community events etc.
Please don’t forget to include your name and address!
More details regarding this project can be found on my website under the Community tab.
