A new site plan control proposal has been posted to the City’s web site for a two-storey automotive shop at 5830 Hazeldean just east of Sweetnam.
“The proposed building will be to accommodate an automotive service facility known as Kanata Rims and Tires. The proposed building is two storeys in height (9.5 metres) with a gross floor area of 1,375 square metres. The building includes nine service bays with a mezzanine and storage area above the ground floor. The development includes two accesses; an all directional access off of Sweetnam Drive and an access limited to right-in right-out off Hazeldean Road. 20 surface parking spaces are proposed surrounding the building.=
Two bioretention and infiltration areas are proposed adjacent Poole Creek to manage stormwater. Some of the existing trees on the site will need to be removed to accommodate the development; however the majority of the trees on site will be retained. Additional plantings are proposed to compensate for tree removal.”
The land was once home to Alfonsetti’s restaurant, and the building on the site was demolished earlier this year. Kanata Rim and Tires is currently located on Edgewater, behind Terry Fox. If they move to Stittsville, we recommend a name change to either “Stittsville Rim & Tires” or even “Hazeldean Rim & Tires”!
