Ward 15: Looking 4ward – October 18

Via D. Huron, see also http://kitchissippiward.ca/content/hampton-iona-looks-4ward-future and https://hamptoniona.wordpress.com/2017/10/12/hampton-iona-looks-4ward-to-the-future/

Message from the Hampton Iona Community Group:

Think about the qualities that drew you to live in Hampton Iona. What made this part of Ottawa a place in which you wanted to live, raise a family and retire? How do you feel about the way your neighbourhood is developing now? What concerns you? What excites you? How do we retain the qualities that make this a special part of the city in which to live, while dealing with issues such as intensification and opportunities such as the LRT?

Come and join us on October 18th for a “big picture” conversation concerning the future of our corner of Kitchissippi Ward. With significant new development, infill and changing transportation systems, Hampton Iona and the rest of Kitchissippi Ward will look significantly different in 10 or 20 years. How can we have a voice in what our future will look like? What role can citizens play in designing our neighbourhoods and city; and coping with change? How can we make sure that our social and physical infrastructures keep pace with our population growth?

Missing Cat

Our cat is missing and she’s unlikely to find her own way home. See attached flyer that I distributed to 50 nearby houses. I posted up 4 notices on lamp posts too.

Book Club Inaugural Meeting – September 19

Amy Steele Kempster is setting up a book club. An inaugural meeting is set for Tuesday September 19th at 2pm, to decide on how to run the club and to find out how much interest there is.

They need to decide on things like:

  • When should the meetings be (likely on Tuesdays at 2pm since that’s available) and how often (monthly, weekly, bi-weekly)?
  • What sort of books should they read? Fiction, non-fiction, or specific genres. Or have the members choose books on a rotation basis.
  • Should they take turns reading and discussing a book, particularly if multiple copies aren’t available, or wait for everyone to have read it before discussing?

Please show your interest by coming to the inaugural meeting.

Champlain Oaks Available for Planting

Daniel Buckles writes:

I have a small number of Bur Oak saplings grown from seed of the oldest and biggest trees in our neighbourhood. The saplings are direct descendants from the ancient oak forest viewed by Champlain in 1613 and that lined the Ottawa River following the last great Ice Age. Contact me if you have a plantable spot and would like to establish one of these trees.
