Preston-Carling Design Charette

From the City of Ottawa:

City holds public meeting on Preston-Carling district plan

Urban design consultant George Dark's recommended development plan for the Preston-Carling district, one of the fastest growing neighbourhoods in the city, will be presented at a public information session on Tuesday, February 5.

The Preston-Carling strategic directions will complement two community design plans in the Preston Street corridor: One for Bayview Station District at the north and Gladstone Station District farther south.

This information session will be a chance for residents to see and comment on the Mr. Dark's recommended approach for redevelopment of the Preston-Carling district, including project timelines, and to view the results of a recent public design charette. The Preston-Carling district plan was commissioned to ensure orderly development after the City received a number of applications for major developments in the area.

The charette was conducted by Mr. Dark and resulted in a model showing possible buildings, greenspace and transportation links. After the public information session, City Planning staff will review the public comments and present their recommendations to the City's Planning Committee and Council for consideration in March.

Date: Tuesday February 5, 2013
Time: 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Location: Tom Brown Arena, 141 Bayview Road, Ottawa

For more information on the Carling-Bayview Community Design Plan and to review and comment on the results from the design charette, please visit ottawa.ca/carlingbayview.

Somerset West Community Health Centre has just purchased the building at 30 Rosemount for a new satellite centre to be called the Hintonburg Hub. The Hub will offer medical and health promotion services to the surrounding community.

The design process has started. The main floor of the building will be renovated for a medical clinic. The upper floor will be renovated to provide several multi-purpose rooms for health programming and community services.

Come to the open house to see the design in progress, discuss priorities and features of the building, and to give your ideas and comments.

Snow bank removal schedule for tonight and tomorrow

From Katherine Hobbs:

Hello all,

With over 7000 kilometers of roads in Ottawa clearing all the snow from our streets is a big operation that has been compounded by two major storms within 7 days of each other depositing more snow than we had all last winter. There are many parked cars on our roads which impede plowing as the plows have to go around them, and ultimately we are left with more snow on the road.
