Dear Ward 22,
During this time, my office is still taking your phone calls and answering your emails. You may contact us at 613-580-2424 ext. 17022 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a very trying time but please remember you are not alone. I've created a dedicated page for the most recent COVID-19 news.
Thank you everybody for your cooperation and please do not hesitate to contact my office if you have any questions or concerns.
Please be advised that Bill Leathem Dr, between Paragon Ave and Leikin Dr, has planned work including a new catch basin and overland drainage path. The planned work is to address recurring drainage issues and improve winter maintenance. The City is planning to start the construction work in late fall 2020 and the works are expected to be completed by end of 2020. Construction will last approximately 2 weeks.
On Tuesday, October 27th, you are cordially invited to attend a virtual 2021 City of Ottawa Budget Public Consultation, co-hosted by Councillor Jan Harder, Councillor Keith Egli, and Councillor Carol Anne Meehan. Hear a presentation on the city budget structure from the City Treasurer’s office and have an opportunity to share your feedback on how the budget should be allocated. This event will be held virtually using Zoom. Email my office to register or to submit your questions.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Ottawa's Forestry’s spring 2020 planting season was postponed and new planting requests were put on hold. I am happy to announce that Forestry Services’ fall planting program will run this year and planting requests for 2021 are now being accepted. Planting program information can be found at Ottawa.ca/forestry.
The fall planting program is scheduled to begin the week of September 21st and will run, weather permitting, until mid November.
You are invited to fill out an online questionnaire about the City’s Transportation Master Plan update until Friday, October 23.
The update to the Transportation Master Plan will review the ways in which people, vehicles and goods move through our city, and how we can achieve this mobility more responsibly and sustainably for all, including those who have mobility challenges.
We are starting to get more calls about theft from vehicles. I ask you report each incident to the Ottawa Police. You can report online or call 613-236-1222 x 7300. The police will step up their presence if they see a spike in theft reports. It’s important to try to prevent your car from being a target. Never leave valuables in your vehicle and always lock your doors. Police also suggest you print a sign that says “NOTHING VALUABLE INSIDE”, and place it in a visible spot.
Save the date! The “Trot or Treat” event, held in support of children with autism and their families, is a free and socially-distanced pre-Halloween celebration being held this October at the Terry Fox Athletic Facility. Many families have felt isolated due to the lock downs and restrictions in place, especially families of children with autism. This event is a great opportunity for families to come together in support of their community in a way that is safe, fun, and responsible.
Please check out my community video updates. All new videos will be posted here. You may find the rest of my videos here.
A big thank you to Findlay Creek resident, Kathryn Laflamme, who has adopted Anisha Park in her neighbourhood. This young busy mother wants her children and others to be able to play in a clean park so instead of relying solely on city staff she has committed to picking up garbage others leave behind.
Gloucester-South Nepean Ward or Ward 22 (French: Quartier Gloucester-Nepean-Sud) is a city ward located in Ottawa, Ontario. Situated in the south end of the city, the ward includes the communities of Chapman Mills, Stonebridge and Davidson Heights in Barrhaven as well as Riverside South and Findlay Creek in Gloucester. This new ward was created in 2006 from parts of Bell-South Nepean and Gloucester-Southgate Wards due to the rapid growth in both communities.
A big thank you to our community associations who work hard and are dedicated to making our neighborhoods such great places to live:
