Construction equipment began clearing trees on Thursday from the disputed development property at 6279 Fernbank Road.
Neighbouring residents were hoping to delay the tree clearing until they had a chance to meet with the developer and the City of Ottawa to get a better understanding of what work was being and done. That meeting never happened.
Heavy equipment rolled in and started clearing trees from the property earlier this morning. Residents shared several concerns today with StittsvilleCentral.ca, including:
- Concern about a family of four deer who’ve been seen frequently in the area
- A lack of construction fencing to protect neighbours living next to the construction areas.
- Concern about wood chips and other debris landing in backyards, which could pose a danger to children and pets.
- Heavy construction traffic on neighbourhood roads.
