We’re used to roads being added to Stittsville, but it’s not very often that we see a proposal to subtract a street. That’s exactly what the City of Ottawa is proposing for the north part of Johnwoods Street, between Rosehill and Maple Grove.
Johnwoods would be converted into a pedestrian/cyclist corridor, by removing the existing asphalt and creating a 3-metre wide recreational pathway.
The conversion would only happen once Rosehill Avenue and Santolina Street are completed. Rosehill runs east-west, connecting Johnwoods to Huntmar, and Santolina runs parallel to Johnwoods, connecting Maple Grove to Rosehill.
The City is hosting an info session on Wednesday, May 4 in the upper hall of the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena (10 Warner-Colpitts Lane). There’s an open house at 6:30pm followed by a presentation at 7:00pm.
