Board Notes

Five things from our June monthly meeting

Five things from last night’s Fairwinds Community Association meeting:
 
1. Flex stakes will be installed sometime this year on Rosehill between the roundabout and Maple Grove. They’re designed to slow down traffic on that stretch of road. (see below)
 
2. Maple Grove will be closed east of Huntmar this Saturday, June 18 for pole relocation.
 
3. We’re planning two movie nights this summer, one in July and one in August. We are looking for event sponsors and volunteers; please contact info@fairwindscommunity.com if you can help.
 
4. We got an overview of the City’s new “Community Association Liaisons (CAL) Program” from a planner.
 
5. Councillor Qadri is hosting a Father’s Day pancake breakfast at Village Square Park on Sunday morning (Stittsville Main @ Abbott)

Update re: hydro pole relocation on Maple Grove

From Councillor Qadri:

Hydro Ottawa will be undertaking a few electrical service improvements in Stittsville this summer. The project involves relocating 34 hydro poles on Maple Grove Road (between Terry Fox Drive and Rosehill Avenue). This project will improve the reliability of the electrical distribution system in the Stittsville area.

Work is scheduled to commence in May and continue until the end of July 2016. Residents may notice an increased construction presence throughout the duration of the project, including excavation activities. In order to minimize noise concerns, Hydro Ottawa will ensure that work is completed weekdays between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Traffic control will also be implemented when required to ensure that roads and driveways remain accessible and safe to residents. Our qualified staff and contractors will conduct this work safely and efficiently, ensuring that any inconvenience is minimal.

Be assured that all residents and businesses in the affected area will receive advanced notice of the project and be provided with a point of contact. Residents will also receive advance notification prior to any planned power interruption affecting their premises.

My office and Hydro Ottawa are committed to delivering safe, reliable electricity service and keeping you informed of upgrades and emergency work taking place in our community. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact myself at shad.qadri@ottawa.ca or Mike Denomme, System Designer, who has been overseeing this project atmikedenomme@hydroottawa.com.
