The City has received an application to amend the zoning to permit the new landfill of Carp Road that has been approved by the province. A public session is tentatively set for May 5 to go over the application, and Im meeting with my west end colleagues to learn more about it. Watch this column for further updates prior to the meeting.


Four community awards will be given (youth, adult, senior, organization) to individuals (1st 3 categories) or group (private, non-profit) who reside in and/or have done volunteer or charitable activities that benefit Kanata North. All nominees will be recognized at a special event, The Community Recognition Awards Ceremony, on April 27. Forms are available at http://tiny.cc/Awards2014, at my office, the Beaverbrook Library Depot & RRCK. Nominate and recognize those who make a difference in our community.

Despite the need for public consultation on the location for Canada Post boxes in the Beaverbrook Community, I have received information from City Planning staff that includes recommended locations for all boxes to serve Beaverbrook. Apartments will have no change to their service, and Canada Post has met with condominiums to determine locations, since they need permission to go on private property. For the rest of us, the boxes will be on public property and, under federal legislation, Canada Post can put them anywhere on our road allowances and other lands. Despite that, I believe that the public should have a say in the locations when they are being placed within an existing community. Hence, Im working with the KBCA to hold a public session where we can show you what is being proposed, get your feedback, and report back to the City and to Canada Post on any changes we feel are appropriate. Ill send out an email and report in this column the date and place of such meetings.
