Re: Low-rise apartments proposed for Cope Drive

Claire Rothwell: “I agree that it will bring more traffic to an area that is already busy. Parking in the side streets is already an issue. What I do not agree with is the renters issue. I am a renter in the area and take a lot of pride in my home and take very good care of the house I live in. Renter doesn’t equal a bad, uncaring person who wants to live in a mess. My other comment would be that the one spot on Cope turns in a lake in the spring. I would not live in that area at all. I know that they can fix issues like this but it sticks in my head how much water accumulates there each year.”

Re: HIGH & DRY: Stittsville’s prohibition-era Temperance Hotel

Quitters Coffee: “This is such a great piece, so cool to see the historical photos, the history is really amazing. Love that wrap around porch, oh LORD! would we ever like to re-vitalize that piece of Stittsville history….”

BR Ravishankar: “Fantastic read. Thank you. Hope you will be able to cover other spots in Stittsville as well…I am curious about the history of the Stittsville United Church, Old Stittsville log home, some of the other buildings at Abbot and Stittsville Main, etc.”
