Tunney’s Pasture Redevelopment Workshops – May 25, 26

Following on from last year’s Tunney’s Pasture Redevelopment Survey

In 2014, the National Capital Commission finalized and endorsed the Tunney’s Pasture Master Plan (TPMP). The Canada Lands Company (CLC) – a federal Crown corporation – is managing the transformation: https://www.clc-sic.ca/real-estate/tunneys-pasture. CLC is seeking your input to this project. Please see the invitation to register for next week’s workshop.

Thanks, Heather

New Scott Street Connection to the Winter Trail

Kìchì Sìbì Winter Trail Announcement: please help spread the word!

NOW OPEN!! The Scott Street Connector at Tunney’s Pasture!

It is with great pleasure that the Kìchì Sìbì Winter Trail Team can at last announce the opening of its new Scott St. Connector.

This newest groomed addition to the winter trail network is located along the tree-lined western edge of the Tunney’s Pasture site, and establishes a new formal trail access point near the corner of Scott St. and Sir Frederick Banting Driveway. This new trailhead is within easy reach of the neighbourhoods immediately to the south of Scott St, as well as to the Tunney’s LRT station.

Winter Trail users (walkers, skiers, winter bikers) can park in the NW corner, or the SW corner, of the Tunney’s Pasture parking lots any time after 3pm on weekdays, and all day on Saturday & Sunday, except during snow clearance operations.

Kichi Sibi Winter Trail – Christmas Tree Reuse

The Kichi Sibi Winter Trail @KichiSibiWT are now collecting unwanted xmas trees for reuse as a wind blocks along the winter trail. Please leave your cleaned Xmas tree of tinsel and anything else at the Remic Rapids Outhouse adjacent to the Remic Rapids parking lot, we only need the tree. At the end of the season these reused xmas trees will be chipped and recycled as mulch.

Many thanks

Tada!

The IPD-Clearview crosswalk is up and running. Great to see cars stopping for kids crossing IPD to get to school this morning.

Many thanks to Geoff/Tom, City staff, the NCC and many others who helped make it happen, including Sam Mizrahi who agreed to pay for it all.

Clearview and Island Park Drive Traffic Light News Update

Traffic cones and other orange coloured things (not pumpkins!) are going up around the Island Park Drive and Clearview Avenue intersection. Could it be that the traffic light is being installed? Here’s the view from this morning, with some more traffic control equipment trucks arriving moments later, perhaps to add more traffic detour barrels.

Clearview and Island Park Drive Traffic Light News Update

From our city councillor Jeff Leiper’s newsletter of October 29 2021:

IPD/Clearview pedestrian crossing

My most recent understanding of when the IPD/Clearview pedestrian crossing will go in is that the contractor is now ready and that they are waiting for a road cut permit. My office is advocating for an expedition of that. We’ll see.
