In an update on Facebook today, Councillor Shad Qadri advises that tree clearing work started today on the site of a new commercial development owned by Huntington Properties at Iber and Hazeldean:
“Tree Clearing Starting today for development at south west corner of Hazeldean/Iber. A tree permit has been approved for the construction of a mixed retail, commercial and office to be located at 5734 and 5754 Hazeldean Road and 2 Iber Road. Unfortunately, the parking and building layout do not allow for more tree retention. Approximately 140 trees are scheduled for planting within and surrounding the development. Approximately 117 trees will be removed. 44 trees are to be retained on or adjacent to the developed areas. The tree permit issued for this address is issued under Part II of the Urban Tree Conservation By-law. Huntington Properties is developer of the site and have advised they are finalization of the leasing and pre-construction plans for the site and will provide more information in the future which I will share with the community.”
The original site plan for this development was submitted nearly four years ago in October 2013, with approval granted in 2015. Continue reading

CST Brands, Inc. is pleased to announce the official opening of a new Corner Store with an Ultramar service station located at 5943 Hazeldan Road. Residents and motorists passing through Stittsville now have a new Corner Store where they can stop for a wide selection of grocery items, a quick Grab ‘n Go lunch, products from the Transit Café line, a car wash and a tank full of gas.
Construction is underway for a gas station at the corner of Hazeldean and Hartin. I’ve seen a few questions from residents about the development: what exactly is going in there? were neighbours consulted? does Stittsville need another gas station? what about the old gas station across the street?

We’ve had a report of a gas leak on Carp Road near Hazeldean, where a new Goodlife gym is being constructed.
Margarita Chen from KungFu Bistro says that gas for her building was been temporarily shut down while it was being repaired, impacting their lunch service. They were back up and running shortly after 3:00pm.
via Devyn Barrie / 960 News:
Crews from Ottawa fire and Enbridge were called to the scene of a gas leak Monday morning. Ottawa fire confirmed to 960 NEWS the leak was in a new development near Santolina Street and Rosehill Avenue. The leak did not pose a danger to the public and the area was immediately evacuated so Enbridge could stop the flow.
No residents were evacuated but access to some streets was blocked off while the leak was repaired. Councillor Shad Qadri provided an update shortly after 8:00pm:
“As a result of construction crews hitting a 4” gas main at Santolina and Rosehill earlier today,gas in this area was shut off. Enbridge is currently onsite in Fairwinds West repairing the gas line that was damaged. Will provide further up dates as I receive them. Gas to the affected units has been shut off.”
Every week we get lots of comments from our readers on our web site, via email, and social media. Here’s a sample of what we heard this week. Add your thoughts to the comments at the bottom of this article or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The gas station at the corner of Palladium and Huntmar has been temporarily shut down as crews convert it from an Ultramar to an Esso. We tried calling the gas station today but we keep getting a busy signal. Will the Country Style donut shop be converted to a Tim Hortons?
UPDATE: Like a really efficient pit stop, the gas station was open again as of Wednesday evening as an Esso.
A gas leak at a construction site briefly caused the closure of Huntmar Drive in Fairwinds on Tuesday afternoon.
The crews were working near the corner of Huntmar and Coriolis. Huntmar was closed in both directions for about an hour.
It re-opened by about 2:30pm.
When’s the last time gas in Stittsville was under a dollar?
Photographer Barry Gray sent along this pic earlier this afternoon. Then a few minutes later he sent me another note: “Just filled up at the PetroCan at Hazeldean and Carp Road…….$098.9”
