As mentioned previously, the old asphalt sidewalks are being replaced by concrete ones. So both Clearview:
and Premier avenue are being done:
This isn’t directly in our neighbourhood but is likely of interest…

Subject: Update – 190 Richmond Road applications
Please note that all members of the public and registered community groups, whom have provided comment(s) to date, are included on this e-mail and have been Bcc’d in order to maintain e-mail privacy.
The applicants for 190 Richmond Road (Zoning – D02-02-16-0031, Site Plan D07-12-16-0055) have submitted revised plans and studies in response the initial comment period, the community open house (Sept. 2016), and recent review by the Urban Design Review Panel.
All revisions have been uploaded to the http://ottawa.ca/devapps website and can be viewed by searching the address or above noted file numbers.
Highlights of the proposed development include:
- 6-storey apartment building with 187 units
- 143 parking spaces in underground garage
- 94 Bicycle parking spaces (40 at grade, 54 below grade)
- The 5th and 6th storeys are setback 1.5m from the below storeys facing Kirkwood and Byron Linear.
- Additional building setback along Byron Linear to preserve all trees.
- Surface parking lot for Grocery Store and LCBO reconfigured providing 400 parking spaces (approx. 380 exist currently).
- Land set aside for a new park, approximately 1000sq.m in size and located in the southwest corner of the site abutting Byron Linear. Note – the size and location of the park will be confirmed through the Zoning application, but the design will be subject to a separate public process.
- New north-south pedestrian/cyclist connections through the site, including landscaping.
- Section 37 (community benefits) is required for the proposed development. Staff will discuss this with Councillor Leiper.

Street sweeping operations now in effect
The City of Ottawa’s winter overnight parking restrictions are now completed for the 2016-2017 season. The City would like to thank you for your cooperation in making our streets safer throughout the winter season.
On Sunday, April 9 City of Ottawa crews will begin the annual city-wide sweeping of streets and sidewalks, including both daytime and night-time operations. These operations are necessary to remove debris, dust and sand that accumulated over the winter months.

From: Heather Pearl <email@example.com>
Jeff Leiper’s Kitchissippi Ward Newsletter contains a notice about street renaming, that affects two streets in Champlain Park. Patricia Avenue (Pontiac to Premier) and Premier Avenue (Remic to Island Park Drive and from Patricia to Northwestern) are on the list of streets to be renamed.

Pontiac Street partial closure update
It has been a bit of a slog to accomplish the street closure for a portion of Pontiac that we’ve been seeking since last fall. There were some outstanding questions about drainage from staff that we believe we’ve now worked through, and we expect to put jersey barriers in place as a first phase of closure relatively soon. In response to a community request, we’re delaying that until the end of the school year in order to minimize disruption to school buses and drop-off. The background to the closure is here. We’ve yet to figure out a timetable for de-paving, but are working on it!
