Week in Review
Congratulations to all the winners of the 2017 West Ottawa Board of Trade Business Excellence Awards! Many Kanata South businesses were nominated as finalists this year. Please join me in continuing to support Kanata South businesses.
Woodlot Rehabilitation Program
There are a significant number of dead or declining ash trees in the Katimavik Woods and Cattail Creek Park that were scheduled to be removed this winter. The work was to be done once the ground had frozen to allow for heavy machinery to be brought in and not damage the surrounding areas. Unfortunately due to the warm weather we received in February, the large scale removals could not be done and will be rescheduled for removal next winter. Any trees that require immediate attention due to declining health or hazard will be removed via normal Forestry Operations.
Once I receive notice of the removals for next winter, I will post the dates on my website with maps of areas where work will be done. Please note that residents adjacent to the woodlots will be notified by mail prior to any removal work.
Hydro Corridor pathway
Hydro One, has issued a renewal of License of Occupation to the City for the continued use of one of their hydro corridors located between Eagleson Rd. and the Greenbelt south of Stonehaven. This area includes 5 kms of trails with a parking lot that is a popular connection for residents to some of the other great pedestrian networks within our community.
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 email@example.com.
