Happy Fall Everyone

As you know, the NCC is reviewing the site selection of the new Civic Hospital. They are inviting public consultation on this and have posted a survey. Please take a moment before October 6, when the survey closes, to have your say!
Ottawa Hospital Site Review

The second topic is infill on Island Park Crescent (IPC). There is a proposal to develop a small plot of land at 615 Island Park Crescent. On behalf of the owner, who owns property on Edina, the planner is applying for consent and 5 minor variances with the Committee of Adjustment for the development of a single detached home. One of the variances asks for a reduced front yard setback, meaning the front of the house will be closer to the sidewalk than its neighbours. You are invited to learn more about what is being planned and share your thoughts. See you there!

Shave and Pave

In case you missed it, the promised “shave and pave” of the southern part of IPD will start on Monday. It’s likely to cause problems … Prepare accordingly!

Gas Station Vandalized at IPD and Richmond Road

Residents had to call police in the wee hours of August 12: Vandals smashed windows and kicked in doors of the heritage gas station at 70 Richmond Road.
If anyone heard anything or knows anything about this, please contact the police at 613 236-1222 extension 7300.

We have contacted Councillor Jeff Leiper and Heritage Ottawa to see what can be done to protect this heritage property until it is developed.

Mizrahi Activity.

Alert residents may have noticed there’s some activity at the Mizrahi site at the corner of Island Park and Wellington. Turns out, Mr. Mizrahi is getting ready to open his sales office. Stay tuned!

Due to rain, the Island Park Drive garage sale has been postponed to Sunday, June 12.

Warning! Hot Tar is Coming our way!


Just a note to all residents living on the south-end of IPD that the City will begin a “shave and pave” from Carling Avenue to Byron.  This could start as early as June 13 and will likely continue through until July.  Expect slowdowns!
