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!

AGM

IPCA ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING!                                                                             

Thursday, May 26, 2016

7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Kitchissippi United Church

630 Island Park Drive

This year in addition to providing an update on the issues that affect our street, we will discuss pursuing a Heritage Conservation District (HCD) designation for IPD to replace the NCC covenants that will expire in 2020.  We will have a special guest from the City of Ottawa Planning Department who will explain what’s involved with an HCD and be able to answer your questions.

 To get us started on compiling details about the history of the street, what do you know about your house?  Do you have any history you would like to share – even just the date it was built would be helpful!

And of course, you are invited to join the IPCA or renew you membership – only $10 per household – and vote for a Board of Directors.  Why not run for the Board yourself?  Many hands make light work!

See you there!
