City Councillor Jan Harder and OC Transpo have announced improvements for Half Moon Bay residents for the morning commute.
Starting with the fall schedule change in September, all Route 177 buses from Half Moon Bay running Northbound will become a Route 95 at Barrhaven Centre. This means that riders who currently need to transfer to a 95 to get downtown will be able to stay on the same bus.
The fall schedule is currently being developed by OC Transpo and will reflect these changes.
While the afternoon rush will still require riders to transfer from a 95 to a 177, the HMBCA will continue to lobby for improved service for that period as well.
Ever wonder when your street will be plowed after a winter snow storm? The City of Ottawa has provided this great infographic demonstrating their plan.
Note that most residential side streets are not plowed until 10-16 hours after the beginning of snow accumulation. While the overnight parking ban is in effect from 1am-7am, this sometimes means that the majority of our streets are not plowed within the parking ban hours.
Please be courteous to your neighbours and try to keep your vehicles off the streets until plowing has been completed.
Andrea Steenbakkers (OCSB Zone 4 Trustee) has submitted a message that she has stepped down from the campaign for personal reasons. She encourages all voters to visit the websites of the other candidates Greg Deernsted and Spencer Warren.
In 2006 when we were planning your community I knew it would be special. In fact we passed the Barrhaven South Community Design Plan with all the components. Here are a few items we've worked on over the years:
New Minto Recreation Complex opening November 29 – it’s amazing!
Beautiful Half Moon Bay Park
Finally Regatta paving
River Run exit to Greenbank
Crossing guard for St Cecilia School
Advanced Jockvale widening with 2 bridges and roundabout plus Jockvale east in phase 1
Greenbank realignment phase 1
Zoned Business park for 7,000 high end jobs/more people will love to live in Barrhaven
Connecting pathways and cycling lanes
No expansion to Trail Road landfill
Working on Barnsdale interchange
I work hard for you everyday, I’d be honoured to have your support on Oct 27 to continue building a great Half Moon Bay and Barrhaven!
My name is Syed Asghar Hussain and I am running for City Councillor for Ward 3 – Barrhaven. My main objective for this campaign is to bring the concerns of the community to the attention of the city for action. Some of the issues that are currently facing the ward are: the railway crossing, traffic build-up on Fallowfield Road and Greenbank Road and the issue of bi-weekly garbage collection. The building of an overpass at the railway crossings will benefit the community by preventing future accidents and bringing peace of mind to the residents of Barrhaven. The extension of the two above mentioned roads will assist in a smooth commute during rush hour. Through my campaign I would also like to address the issue of high property taxes and propose the incineration of waste into energy which in turn will be provided back to the city grid to safeguard the environment.
