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.
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”.
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.
