After nearly 18 months on the market, the historic Butler House / Green’s Hotel on Stittsville Main Street has been sold. The new owners are from the Kanata area and they plan to keep the building as an office for at least the next couple of years. Built in 1894, the three-story brick building is the only officially designated heritage building on Stittsville Main Street.  The real estate agent tells me the building is in excellent condition — he said the foundation looks like it was poured yesterday.

KAVANAGH GREEN

City Council approved commemorative naming proposals for a future park at the corner of Hazeldean Road and Stittsville Main Street, to be known as Kavanagh Green. From the official report on the proposal:

“In recognition of the Kavanagh family’s historical significance to the community of Stittsville, a proposal to name a future park at the southwest corner intersection of Hazeldean road and Stittsville Main Street has been submitted to the Commemorative Naming Committee. For nearly a century, Kavanagh family members have made important contributions to the community of Stittsville and surrounding areas which include owning and operating the popular Stittsville Flea Market for 25 years and volunteering with the Food Bank, Holy Spirit Church and the Ruddy Shenkman Hospice.”

NEW PLANNING ADVISORY COMMITTEE AT CITY HALL

Kitchissippi Ward councillor Jeff Leiper shared this nugget of information in his weekly newsletter: “At Council, we’ll also consider a new Planning Advisory Committee that will consist of Council, resident, Federation of Citizen Association, builder, building owner, planning, architect and landscape architect communities. That committee is proposed to meet twice a year to comment on and then review the planning department’s workplan. It would work like other advisory committees at the City, with public notice of its meetings, agendas, and following the advisory committees’ rules of procedure.”
