KS – January 12, 2017


Week in Review

With the mix of weather that we have been experiencing over the past couple of weeks, I would like remind residents to park in their driveways (when possible) so that the snow plows can clear entire streets.

Fire Services, waste management, snow removal trucks and ambulances have difficulty getting past cars that are parked illegally on the road.  In the winter months it is extremely important to follow all on-street parking regulations to ensure that the road remains clear so that emergency vehicles can get through when needed and the roadway is clear so that you and your neighbours can travel safely to and from your homes.


Ottawa Police to Host Public Information Sessions

The Ottawa Police Service (OPS) is hosting a series of public information sessions for residents to learn more about changes to its service delivery model.

These changes are part of a strategy called the Service Initiative (SI) Program, which is designed to improve how the OPS serves the community.

At the information sessions, residents will learn about their Community Police Officers, how to access policing services, where to direct concerns about safety in their neighbourhood, and more.

Three sessions are being hosted across the city. Spaces are limited (100 spots per session) so residents are asked to register online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/C9VK6LH

The Kanata session will be held on January 18th, 7:00-8:30pm at the Kanata Recreation Complex, Upper Hall A.


2017 Project

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.

We also want to know what places and activities you believe are special.  Maybe it is a local business, your favourite place to eat, a park or maybe it is the piano in the gazebo by the pond at the KRC.

Details regarding this project can be found on my website under the Community tab.
