The same procedures that were in place for the Household Hazardous Waste Depot that took place at the Conroy Snow Dump will be in effect for all upcoming events in 2021. For your awareness and as a reminder:
Upon arrival, residents will be directed into a queue where they will wait their turn to park in a designated area. All vehicles will be spaced accordingly, and residents must remain in their vehicle at all times;
Residents arriving on bicycles are permitted to drop-off materials, and they must follow the instructions provided by staff on site;
The depot will accept household hazardous waste only. No electronic waste will be accepted;
o Residents can bring electronic waste to the Trail Road Landfill facility at no cost, or can contact a participating Take it Back member to arrange for proper disposal;
Due to operating restrictions, bins, totes, gas cans, etc. will not be returned to the resident;
The last vehicle will be emptied at 4:00 p.m. If the site is experiencing long line-ups,
residents may not be able to drop off their material.
Zoning By-law Amendment and Official Plan Amendment applications have been submitted to the City for 283-285 McLeod, which are currently occupied by a 3-storey detached brick building on each lot. The proposed development features an 8-storey residential building with a 3-storey podium consisting of a new section on the eastern portion of the site and the existing building at 285 McLeod, reorienting its entrance to the McLeod façade.
The properties are currently zoned R4 and designated as low-rise through Schedule H2 of the Centretown Secondary Plan, restricting heights to a maximum of 4-storeys. The Zoning By-law and Official Plan Amendments are required to address the requested increase in height and relief from certain setbacks. This site is located within the Centretown Heritage Conservation District and will also require a heritage permit.
Come learn more about the proposal, ask questions on the development, and share your concerns with the applicant team. The virtual meeting will take place via Zoom on Tuesday, October 26th, 2021 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM.

It's been too long since we've been able to gather as a community and see each other in person! I'm holding an outdoor community catch-up at Plouffe Park to discuss what's going on in the neighbourhood, share any concerns, chat about upcoming projects at the City, and spend some time with your neighbours.
Join me and members of the Dalhousie Community Association on Saturday, October 30 from 10 am - 12 pm and stick around in the afternoon for Plant Pool Recreation Association's Halloween event with a costume parade and bake sale!
The community catch-up will be held outside and masks will be required for older kids and adults.
On September 22, 2021, I tabled a Notice of Motion, seconded by Councillor Carol Anne Meehan, calling for a judicial inquiry into the contracts and management of Ottawa's problem LRT system. You paid for this system and you deserve to know how we got a system that is dysfunctional and has thrown our entire transit system into crisis.
If you agree with this motion and the need for more transparency, add your name to the petition. The motion should be discussed and voted on by City Council on October 13, 2021. The entire text of the motion can be found here
I support the calls for a judicial inquiry into the contracts and management of Ottawa's LRT system and urge council to pass the motion by Councillors Mckenney and Meehan that will be voted on at the October 13th City Council Meeting
