KS – March 16, 2017


 

Week in Review

It was an honour to travel with the Mayor and Sir Terry Matthews to Toronto to visit the Premier and key Ministers in the provincial government recently.  As the seconder on the motion to create a Centre of Excellence in Kanata for driverless and driver assisted technologies, I was certainly there to support that effort but as the council designated sponsor for all Smart City initiatives along with Councillors Harder and Tierney, we were able to support several local tech firms in furthering their plans to unlock the potential benefits of smart technologies in our city and beyond.  More will be said on this topic in the months and years ahead.

 

Bus Shelters

We have secured funding for the installation of the most new bus shelters in years and will be publishing the listing in my upcoming newsletter.

 

Paint it Up!

Funding is available for outdoor mural art projects that support graffiti prevention, youth empowerment, community safety and the beautification of Ottawa neighbourhoods.

For more information about funding, please visit www.crimepreventionottawa.ca, for the program guidelines and application form.

Projects must contribute to a clean, safe and beautiful city by engaging neighbourhoods and youth in a constructive learning process to create murals to prevent or deter graffiti.

Applications must be postmarked, e-mailed, or received by 4 p.m. Monday, April 4th, 2017.

 

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.

Thank you to all who have sent in their stories and photos.  If you haven’t sent yours in yet, please email them to me at allan.hubley@ottawa.ca.

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