May 16 WLRT Meeting to be Re-Scheduled

On behalf of Councillor Hobbs.

May 16 WLRT Meeting to be Re-Scheduled

Dear Neighbours,
I wanted to notify you officially that the Western Light Rail Transit (WLRT) May 16 meeting scheduled from 4 -6 at Churchill Seniors Centre is cancelled.  I do not yet have a firm date for the rescheduled meeting, but many neighbours had indicated that the timing was not good, and there was no flexibility at the Churchill centre to extend the meeting later.
To make sure as many of you as possible can attend City staff are looking at the beginning of June.
In the interim period since the 5 hour Public Open House where neighbours shared concerns and issues I have been working hard to ensure that everything said is being addressed in the planning of this preferred route. I am continuing to work hard for you to ensure we maintain the beauty of your homes and the quality of life along the parkway. This includes looking at the burying of the line.
I want to reiterate that I made a public commitment to residents in June of last year at Council that I will not allow northern rail to destroy our area.  So please be assured I am working hard for you to retain the value and beauty of your area, and to ensure the City maintains the land along the parkway for everyone in the neighbourhood, for other residents of Ottawa and for visitors to Ottawa.
