The City of Ottawa is holding a Public Meeting on September 9 to discuss a proposed plan of subdivision for 173 Huntmar Drive. The property is just north of Fairwinds, on Huntmar Road between Maple Grove and Palladium.
The meeting is at 7:00pm at the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena (10 Warner-Colpitts Lane, off Stittsville Main).
The plan of subdivision includes a mixed-use development with 13 low rise apartment buildings, 12 townhouses blocks and two four storey commercial buildings with retail on the ground floor and office uses above.” (More here…)
The property includes a 19th century stone farmhouse known as “Boyd House” that would be preserved as a commercial building, along with the land immediately surrounding it. One of the reports recommends saving the trees around the house, as well as the long line of trees along the north lane way.
