Update regarding rink chalets proposed for Bradley Ridge and Patrick Dugas parks

Thank you again to residents who came out to share their thoughts regarding the proposed rink chalets for Bradley Ridge and Patrick Dugas parks during the last two public consultations. Please see below for the updated FAQ. Reminder that you can still provide feedback by emailing Laura.Dudas@ottawa.ca until June 28.

Community input it essential and Councillor Laura Dudas looks forward to hearing from the community and working with residents on the making of this project. The goal of this proposed project is to support the work that is being done by providing funding to provide skate changing and storage shelters for one or both parks. These shelters are currently being used at a few parks in other areas of the city. If installed in our parks, not only would they be maintained and operated by the city, they are also durable and multi-purpose.

Innes Ward street sweeping and pothole filling update

Laura Dudas Quartier Innes Ward

In recent days, my office has received several requests for streets to be cleaned and pot holes to be filled. I want to provide residents with an update in regards to operations:

Street sweeping operations
Street sweepers are continuing to work on streets throughout the ward. City staff informed my office that there had been a delay with the service, but that work is resuming with the intention of have all, or most, ward streets cleaned within the next two weeks.

Pothole filling
The winter was particularly severe to sections of Innes Road. Crews will be out working to repair the damage over the coming week, weather permitting.

Although my office is flagging all streets and potholes that require attention to staff, please continue to file service requests via Ottawa.ca or by calling 3-1-1. This is the most effective means of alerting city maintenance crews to problem areas.

St. Joseph Resurfacing

As part of Councillor Laura Dudas’ 2019 budget commitment, there will be work done on St. Joseph Blvd. 

Traffic impacts:

  • No lane restrictions during peak commute times and weekends.
  • Some night work will be done to ensure the project is done as soon as possible for our community benefit.
  • The extent of the work will span Highway 174 to Prestone Drive. Certain sections of sidewalks will undergo renewal as part of this project.
  • Business is open as usual; please continue to support our local businesses.

Ongoing mapping of Bilberry Creek slopes and flood plain

The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority is undertaking a Hazard Mapping Study for Bilberry Creek, from Innes Road to the Ottawa River. Hazard mapping looks to identify flood risk and slope stability hazards along the creek corridor.

The study will take place this coming summer and residents living along the creek will be informed of the results by RVCA.

During the study, area residents may notice certain trails are temporarily closed and that machinery is being mobilized.

More information is on the RVCA website and additional details will be posted here, on my website, as they become available.
