PUBLIC CONSULTATIONS RE FORMALIZING GUIDELINES FOR SNOW PLOW DRIVEWAY MARKERS

The City is formalizing current guidelines for snow plow driveway markers and is seeking feedback.

Background

Markers used by private snow plow contractors to identify their customers’ driveways are prohibited by various Ottawa by-laws.  However, a pilot program has been in place during recent winters to allow them on a trial basis, subject to specific guidelines.

The guidelines (detailed below) are primarily intended to standardize the use, locations and appearance of these markers, protect residents and the City’s snow clearing and removal equipment from unsafe installations, and minimize disruptions to neighbourhoods.  They are communicated to snow plow contractors when they apply for or renew their annual business licenses.

Pontiac Depaving Park Expansion Update

Seen in councillor Jeff Leiper’s Kitchissippi Ward Newsletter #100:

Pontiac closure

We are finally in a position to begin closing off the portion of Pontiac between Cowley and Carleton to car traffic after months of discussions with the City. Sometime in early July, planters will go in to block off the road and we’ll work with the NCC to bring down their fence quickly after to join the NCC and City parks. It’s still uncertain when we can de-pave the stretch, and we’re working with the community association on that, as well as some parking restrictions in the area to deal with Tunney’s Pasture parkers.

Neighbourhood Watch Bulletin for 2017-06-19

  • Be on the lookout – Door to door furnace “inspectors”.
  • OPS Gala beneficiaries – Charities selected.
