1375 Clyde Avenue – Dymon Warehouse

April 25, 2021 | 0 Comments

Many months ago, the Dymon Storage Company asked the City of Ottawa for a zoning change that would allow construction of one of their self-storage facilities, near the corner of Baseline and Clyde.  City Council denied Dymon’s request. 

Dymon subsequently appealed to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal.  That hearing is scheduled for Monday, May 3 at 10am.

Glopro Application Summary for 1356 Clyde Avenue

March 28, 2021 | 0 Comments

Here is the material submitted to the City Planning Department, by Golpro Developments, for their proposed construction of two high-rise towers at the north-west corner of Baseline and Clyde.  There is a tremendous amount of information in this document :

https://devapps.ottawa.ca/en/applications/__B2M4BV/details

If you have time to read only part of the package, scan through the Planning Rationale.  This is the second rendition of Golpro’s proposal. 

It is clear that they have not listened to the community’s concerns.  If anything, they have made this proposal less acceptable than the earlier version.

Golpro Development Opposition Letters

March 28, 2021 | 0 Comments

Many residents have written to the City Planning Department, expressing disagreement with the proposed Golpro Holdings Inc. development on the north-west corner of Baseline and Clyde.  Few of those letters have been as thorough and well organized as the letter crafted by Greyrock Crescent’s Pamela Laidler and Karen Legasy .

Well done ladies, and thank you.

Community Members

Please write you own letter to let the City know how we feel about this proposed zoning amendment and the planned “needles in the sky”.

Insurance for water supply and sewer/septic lines

March 25, 2021 | 0 Comments

Two mass mailings were recently distributed to many homeowners throughout the City, advertising a program to insure water supply and sewer/septic lines from the owners’ property to connection with City lines.

The letters state that the City of Ottawa has partnered with SLWC to offer insurance to protect against water line degradation/failure.  This is misleading, for despite use of the City of Ottawa logo, the City is not “encouraging” you to purchase this insurance.  The program is completely voluntary.

Several homeowners have investigated and confirmed that their standard home-owner insurance already covers these issues.  You should do the same, for some policies may not provide this coverage.  The attached memo from City Staff to the Mayor and Councillors provides further information.
