… an important notice from the City of Ottawa, copied below.

Churchill Avenue – Carling Avenue to Scott Street and Scott Street – Churchill Avenue to Winona Avenue
Open House #1 – Thursday, October 9, 2008

The City of Ottawa has initiated the preliminary design assignment to rehabilitate Churchill Avenue – Carling to Scott (length of 1,725 m) and Scott Street from Churchill to Winona (length of 100m). The engineering services of Novatech Engineering Consultants Ltd. were retained by the City of Ottawa to manage and complete the required engineering efforts.

The City of Ottawa has identified the need for improvements to roads, sewers and watermain on the following streets: Churchill Avenue – Carling Avenue to Scott Street and Scott Street – Churchill Avenue to Winona Avenue.

Within the limits of the project, the City of Ottawa has identified a requirement for the rehabilitation and/or replacement of its linear infrastructure. Included in the scope of this project is:

  • Rehabilitation/replacement of the watermain.
  • Rehabilitation/replacement of the sanitary sewers.
  • Rehabilitation/replacement and extension of the storm sewers.
  • Surface drainage improvements.
  • Adjustments to pavement widths, new curbs, sidewalks, and road structure.
  • Street lighting and traffic control signal modifications.
  • Water and sewer service replacement to the property line (upgrades to the services on private property, including replacement of lead water service pipes, may also be considered but at the property owner’s cost).
  • The project also provides an opportunity to implement identified traffic calming measures, improvements to transit service, and other features deemed beneficial to the project.

You’re invited:

Thursday, October 9, 2008
7 to 9 p.m.
Churchill Senior Recreational Centre, Main Hall
345 Richmond Road, Ottawa, ON

At the open house, you will be able to:

Why would the City not continue this remediation along Scott Street to Island Park? We all know the infrastructure of sewars, water and storm systems is insufficient now to support the current loading and with the perceived growth of our neighbourhood over the coming years it will become more stressful on the existing systems.

We should encourage Christime Leadman to have this reconstruction continue along Scott to Island Park. Anyone who has walked that strip also knows it is dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists without sidewalks on the south side of Scott. The current vision of Scott street can be made more attractive with a little more thought and effort from local groups and City Council.

I’d like to see the treatment of Churchill from Scott to Byron be the same as the Richmond Road stretch to expand the village atmosphere beyond a linear strip. It would also be nice to see special attention paid to the intersection to create a focal point and put more emphasis on pedestrians like in this intersection in Portland OR:

At Churchill and Byron, there could also be something that presents a resolution to the interruption of the Tramway Park so that in the future there could be better facilities for pedestrians to get from one segment to another (I am hoping that someday there would be a sidewalk on the north side of Byron that ties the two parts of the linear park together, or possibly making Danforth more attractive to walkers and Joggers so that it becomes a link)
