meeting re: Transportation Master Plan

14 05 2009

This came in from Councillor Christine Leadman:

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to a meeting to discuss the future of the Transportation Master Plan. As your councillor and as a resident, I feel it is necessary for the community to discuss the effects the plan will have on Kitchissippi Ward.

There are two components of this plan which are of particular interest to our community:

1. The impact of the western transfer station that is scheduled for Tunney’s Pasture as part of the downtown transit tunnel. This first project of the transit plan will introduce significant transfers and rerouting of buses. City staff is finalizing the implementation methods and public input in the process will be crucial in minimizing impacts.

2. The terms of reference for the Western Corridor Environmental Assessment will be brought forward to Committee and Council soon. During this process public participation on the preferred route will be critical to its selection. It is important that full information be available to all affected residents so that our community can comment effectively on their preferred route. The option is the Ottawa River Parkway, with the Byron Linear Park and Carling Avenue being scoped.

Have your say on this critical change and the effect this will have on your community, family and quality of life.
