The traffic survey results are in. Thank you to all that contributed.
Join your neighbours for our annual Garage Sale.
A resident of IPC reports seeing a fox in her front yard this morning. It was quite bold. Please be cautious with your small pets and kids when they are let out to play in your yard.
Another resident on IPC sent this along: Since foxes are so skittish (and fast), the Humane Society will only attempt capture when it is lying down or not running away from noise. There have been several calls about foxes in the city but so far they have not been successful with capture.
So if you see if this little guy lying down or not responding to noise, please call 613-725-3166.

Featuring special guest Rob Wilkinson with Safer Roads Ottawa as well as Jeopardy winner Grant McSheffrey, who will tell us about his time on the show. As well, Jeff, Grant & Dave Allston will go head to head in a mini Jeopardy round filled with Kitchissippi-related trivia. As always, we will have community association and BIA updates as well as updates from Jeff and our office, and opportunities to connect and discuss issues more in-depth.
It’s coming: construction for Phase 2 of the LRT will affect all of us on IPD . . . as well as those who live on Scott Street and all the surrounding neighbourhoods.
The transitway from Tunney’s to the Sir John A Macdonald Parkway will be shut down for two years to build the LRT lines; the buses will be directed down Scott and over a temporary bridge near Roosevelt. What will happen at the corner of IPD and Scott? What will the City do to mitigate cut-through traffic? The answer to these and many other questions will be raised and discussed at a public meeting:
Public Meeting on Scott Street bus detours
April 4, 2017 – 6 to 9 p.m.
Tom Brown Arena, 141 Bayview Road.
See you there!
Join the Island Park Community Association to Discuss Island Park Drive after the NCC Covenants Expire
Thursday, March 23
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Kichissippi United Church Hall
630 Island Park Drive
With the expiration of Island Park Drive/Crescent NCC covenants by 2021, lot owners will not have to abide by the restrictions that have been in place for nearly 100 years and which have determined the character of the streetscape. Given that, the Board of the Island Park Community Association has studied options available for preserving the streetscape, value and character of our community. On March 23, come out to hear our proposed recommendation and have your say.
Lobby for the continuation of R1 Zoning and the creation of a Heritage Conservation District (HCD). HCDs are already in place to protect the character, streetscapes and values in the Glebe and Rockcliffe Park.
On March 23rd we will discuss work done to study available options and why the Board of the IPCA is proposing R1 Zoning and a Heritage Conservation District.
Learn more by reading the Aide Memoire your Board has prepared – Aide Memoire: Island Park Drive Post-Covenant Options.

Help Prepare IPD for the Future
We are all concerned about the traffic on IPD, and many of you have expressed interest in various traffic calming practices.
This spring, we will meet with the NCC to discuss options with them. But before we do that, the IPCA wants to know your views on how to manage the traffic on our street. Your Board has organized a survey with a number of best practices and ideas. You can find it here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SBM62QH
Prefer to do the survey on paper? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange to drop off a paper copy to your residence.
The survey takes three minutes to complete and will remain open until March 30, 2017.
Have a great early spring!
