Trillium Line Connectivity

The City of Ottawa has released the Stage 2 LRT Station Connectivity Enhancement Study. The Trillium Line South extension will see LRT continue from Greenboro Station to Limebank Road, with a four-kilometre link to the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport. The Trillium Line South will enhance and encourage active transportation through the creation of two new multi-use bridges at the Rideau River and Hunt Club Road. 


In addition, as part of the Stage 2 Trillium Line South Extension, please be advised that a number of activities are scheduled to occur between the new South Keys Station and Limebank Station over the coming months.

COVID-19

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 carolanne.meehan@ottawa.ca. This is a very trying time but please remember you are not alone.
 

As the message regarding COVID-19 continuously evolves, I encourage you to visit Ottawa.ca and ottawapublichealth.ca for the most up to date information.


The Ottawa Public Health website has a number of multilingual resources for COVID-19 updates.


The actions that members of your groups and organizations are taking will save lives and make a difference for your friends, family, neighbours, and colleagues. Remember that COVID-19 affects everyone: regardless of age and current health status. It is important for all of us to continue to practice physical distancing. This means: 


  • Stay at least 2 metres (6 feet) away from people outside of your household
  • Wash your hands with soap and water thoroughly and often
  • Do not touch your face with unwashed hands
  • Clean phones and other devices, and frequently touched surfaces regularly
  • Staying active and engaging in hobbies (while safely maintaining the two-metre distance) can help improve physical and mental health
  • We should use caution when engaged in certain activities (e.g. while out in public - shopping or taking a walk, etc.) 
  • Activities that are considered the least safe include gathering in groups outside of the household unit where physical distancing can be difficult (e.g. having guests over, team sports and other examples)  
  • Cloth masks can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 when physical distancing cannot be maintained. It is strongly recommended to wear a cloth mask in indoor or outdoor settings where maintaining two      metres from others is difficult. For more information about non-medical masks, including how to make one or where to buy one, please visit the special mask website

  

City services: 


Outdoor sports facilities and multi-use fields, including baseball diamonds, soccer fields, frisbee golf locations, tennis, platform tennis, table tennis and pickleball courts, basketball courts, BMX parks and skate parks, are now open. In addition, off-leash dog areas, benches, picnic areas and shelters are also open. In all cases, physical distancing of at least two metres is required.


Public Works and Environmental Services


The delivery of core services and programs remains largely unchanged and essential services including waste collection, road repairs, traffic management and street sweeping operations continue. 


Residents are asked to reduce waste disposal where possible and to delay discarding large items to reduce pressures on the City’s waste collection system.


Most preventative maintenance and non-critical repairs for water services will be temporarily deferred but all critical preventive maintenance, emergency repairs and corrective maintenance continues.


Please visit ottawa.ca for more information.


Community efforts:


To help vulnerable families during this time, I encourage residents to visit the following links to: United Way, the Ottawa Food Bank and the Barrhaven Food Cupboard.
 

Thank you everybody for your cooperation, and please do not hesitate to contact my office if you have any questions or concerns.


Kindly,

Carol Anne

Bank Street Widening

 We received some good news about plans to widen Bank Street South.

   Under the City’s current plan, work to expand Bank Street would not begin until 2025. City Staff now believe Phase 1 of this plan could be expedited to 2022. The new scope would extend the widening down to the Dunskipper and Bank Street intersection. This is an important win for our community and I am very pleased with the new proposed timeline.

Please check out my community video updates. All new videos will be posted here. You may find the rest of my videos here


As we approach graduation season, I helped deliver congratulation lawn signs to the grade 12 grads at St. FX High School, a lawn sign, in lieu of a ceremony and a prom. To their credit, each one of the kids I met was thrilled with the effort their school had made to recognize this milestone in their lives.
