NOTEBOOK: Live music at Quitters, Huntmar’s truck problem

MORE MUSIC AT QUITTERS

I was at Quitters on Saturday night for trivia and two notable things happened.

For one, my team won. That’s a first. Congrats to J, Lorrie and Greg, aka the smart people on my team.

Second, Quizmaster Rick announced that Quitters will be launching some new programming this fall, including a live music series featuring Kathleen Edwards and other musicians.  Watch for details soon.

Three Stittsville properties on the agenda at Committee of Adjustment

The City of Ottawa’s Committee of Adjustment will decide on three Stittsville applications on July 20.

5897 FERNBANK

The owner, Farmhouse Investments Inc., wants to subdivide the land into two separate parcels: “In order to do this, the Owner requires the Consent of the Committee for a Conveyance. The land to be severed is shown on a Draft 4R-Plan filed with the application, will have frontage of 43.25 metres on Fernbank Road to an irregular depth of 102.92 metres and will contain a lot area of 4560 square metres. This parcel contains the existing dwelling known municipally as 5897 Fernbank Road. The land to be retained is also shown on the Plan filed with the application, will have frontage of 38.33 metres on Fernbank Road to an irregular depth of 102.94 metres and will contain a lot area of 15,866 square metres. This parcel is vacant and will be known municipally as 5903 Fernbank Road and is part of the Fernbank Community Plan for future development.” More info…

That “existing dwelling” is also known as Flewellyn-Jones House, which recently was designated under the Ontario Heritage Act. The owners are planning to turn it into a PTSD wellness centre.


30 JOHNWOODS

The owner, real estate agent Glendon Moore, wants to subdivide the property into two separate parcels of land to create a new lot for future development. The house currently facing Johnwoods would make up one piece of land, and a slightly smaller parcel would front front Hartin Street.

“The existing detached dwelling known municipally as 30 Johnwoods Street is to remain on the other parcel. In order to do this, the Owner requires the Consent of the Committee for Conveyances.  The property is shown as Parts 1 and 2 on a Draft 4R-Plan filed with the applications and the separate parcels will be as follows:
Applications for 30 JohnwoodsApproval of these applications will have the effect of creating a parcel of land for the existing dwelling which will not be in conformity with the requirements of the Zoning Bylaw and therefore a Minor Variance Application (D08-02-16/A-00190) has been filed and will be heard concurrently with these applications.”

“In order to proceed, the Owner requires the Authority of the Committee for a Minor Variance from the Zoning By-law to permit a reduced rear yard setback of 2.8 metres whereas the By-law requires a minimum rear yard setback of 9 metres. It should be noted that, for By-law purposes, the frontage on Hartin Street is deemed to be the front lot line for this property.” More info…


325 HALIBURTON, 200, 201 ROVER, 100 SHINNY
(Fernbank / Robert Grant area)

Abbott-Fernbank Holdings Inc. owns the property, and proposes “to construct four detached dwellings on Lots 76, 95, 96 and 115, with one dwelling on each lot. The proposed dwellings on these lots will not be located in conformity with the requirements of the Zoning By-law, as shown on plans filed with the Committee. In order to proceed, the Owner requires the Authority of the Committee for Minor Variances from the Zoning By-law. More info…

(Perhaps as notable as the application are the new street names: Shinny Avenue, Slapshot Way and Rover Street.)
