Dear Resident,

The City of Ottawa invites you to attend an Open House to discuss a storm sewer trunk rehabilitation project planned in your neighbourhood that is expected to begin construction in 2018. Design drawings will be on display for your review, and staff will be available to provide information and receive comments.

WHY:                The City is designing and will be constructing new watermains and new sewers in Ward 18, Alta Vista, to upgrade infrastructure that has reached the end of its service life.

WHAT:             The proposed work will renew infrastructure in your neighbourhood and will involve the construction of new watermains and sewers along with full road reconstruction. Service lines will also be replaced up to the property line. A new sidewalk is proposed to be constructed on the north side of Foley Drive from St Laurent Boulevard to Valley Drive, and on the east side of Valley Drive from Foley Drive to Pleasant Park Road.

WHEN:             The City is planning construction activities within the Phase 1 project limits from July 2018 to November 2019, with winter shut down periods from November to April.

WHERE:            The Phase 1 project limits are:

  • St Laurent Boulevard from Walkley Road to Foley Drive
  • Foley Drive from St Laurent Blvd. to Valley Drive

Valley Drive from Foley Drive to Saunderson Road at Weston Park will be constructed in a later phase.

At the Public Open House, residents are able to drop in during the hours noted above and review the design plans for the project. Representatives from the City, the design consultant and the Ward Councillor’s office, will be available to discuss the project and to answer your questions.

Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa.  If you require special accommodation, please contact the undersigned.
