If you haven’t already, there will be plenty of opportunity to register your household as members of the association before the meeting is called to order.
As a reminder, we’re also planning a Pumpkin Social event for October 15th, 1:00 – 3:00 PM, at Bryanston Gate Park. We’ve planned a free BBQ, activities for kids, and a raffle with many great prizes.

Looking forward to seeing you!

Bryanston Gate community meeting on June 16

Neighbours in the Bryanston Gate community are organizing a meeting on Thursday, June 16.

“Join us, your neighbours, to discuss some current municipal issues. From local concerns, such as repurposing the northern end of Johnwoods Street into a linear park, to changes in the City of Ottawa’s water rate structure, we need to be in on the discussion.

This meeting is completely community-led, and will have a loosely structured agenda. After all, the purpose is to determine what the collective neighbourhood wants to discuss. We’ll also gauge interest in establishing regularly scheduled meetings, or perhaps even a more formal community association.

Whether a formal group is established or not, the ability to communicate with one another inclusively and efficiently is important.”

The meeting will be held at 7:00pm at the Carolark Canine Training Centre (5933 Hazeldean) in the lower level classroom – please use the back entrance off Hartin Street.

You can also sign up to the Bryanston Gate Community E-mail List by sending a request to: BryanstonGateCommunity@gmail.com

For more information you can use the email above or call 613-816-0166.

Neighbours organizing the meeting include Alison, Shelley & David Lynch, Carol and Mike Lenz and Cherlene McEnery.


What’s happening with the Maple Grove link to Jackson Trails?

Today, the west end of Maple Grove Road is just a dead-end dumping ground for construction waste and dog poop bags. Someday, it could be a road connection to Stittsville Main Street.

It’s an idea that’s been talked about for several years, and it shows up from time to time on planning maps, but there’s no specific timeline.

It came up recently during the discussions about Minto’s Potter’s Key subdivision. Some homeowners in Jackson Trails have suggested that Maple Grove could provide a second exit from their community, although many residents don’t want it opened up just yet. Continue reading


LETTER: Hold planning staff accountable for “epic fail”

Re: Qadri and planners get rough ride over Johnwoods “proposal”

As a former political staffer to Bob Chiarelli from 1987 – 1990 and again in 1999, I have seen some great work down by bureaucrats at the provincial level and at the former Region of Ottawa-Carleton (ROC). I went out of my way to thank staff when they were of assistance to the MPP and then Regional Chair as well as helping me in my role. Continue reading
