Spring Cleanup Apr 24, 2022 – Nettoyage Printanier 24 Avril 2022

Thanks to everyone, you have made this a success. We had over 20 volunteers and collected lots of plastics and garbage! See the photo thread on facebook

This was our most successful event since the start of Covid!!! I cannot thank you enough!

Sunday April 24, 2022 10 a.m., we are organizing a community clean up day.  We invite you to come out with members of your family or social bubble to enjoy the outdoors while helping to keep your Cardinal Creek neighbourhood clean. Come out between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to the gazebo at the Cardinal Creek Community Park, 1825 Trim Road (location id 15 on the map below), to collect garbage bags.  All you have to do is pick the location you wish to clean, enjoy your company and some community spirit and return your garbage bags to the same location when you are done. Rain date is Saturday April 30.

You will find the most garbage near high traffic areas along Trim Road in the bushes, as well as in the wooded areas and in ravines adjacent to roads and paths. The paths themselves have some amount of garbage but not the most. Bagged dog poop continues to be a plague along walking paths.

The following is a map where garbage was spotted.

The colors mean:

  1. Green: easy to walk (easy for young children).
  2. Yellow: slopes and not a path, bushes.
  3. Red: wooded, slopes, near water.

Please respect personal choices regarding COVID-19 measures.

Please bring your masks with you to the gazebo.  If there is another group at the gazebo when you arrive, please keep your distance until they have moved away.

Coffee will be served.

We look forward to seeing you at the gazebo!


Dimanche le 24 avril 2022 de 10h à 14h, nous organisons un nettoyage dans le quartier. Nous vous invitons à venir avec votre famille ou les membres de votre bulle sociale profiter de l’extérieur pour aider à garder notre voisinage propre. Venez entre 9h et midi chercher sacs au gazebo du Parc Communautaire Cardinal Creek au 1825 Chemin Trim (marqueur #15 sur la carte). Choisissez un endroit à nettoyer, profitez de la compagnie et de l’esprit de communauté, puis rapportez vos sac au gazebo lorsque vous aurez terminé. Remis au 30 avril en case de pluie.

Vous trouverez de grandes quantités de déchets près des endroits très passants tels que les buissons et les ravins longeant le Chemin Trim. Les sentiers de marche ont aussi des déchets mais ce ne sont pas les endroits les plus sales. Les sacs de caca de chien continuent d’être un fléau à certains endroits.

Voici une carte identifiant plusieurs endroits à nettoyer.

Le code de couleurs signifie:

  1. Vert: facile (pour les plus jeunes)
  2. Jaune: pentes et herbes ou arbustes
  3. Rouge: couvert forestier, pentes, près d’un ruisseau ou près de l’eau

Respectez les choix personnels concernant la COVID-19.

N’oubliez pas de porter votre masque au gazebo. Si d’autres groupes sont présents en même temps que vous, prière de garder vos distances pour le respect de tous.

Du café sera servi.

Au plaisir de vous voir au gazebo!

Infrastructure investment in Cardinal Creek Park and Coyote Trail Park

We have received this important message from our Councillor’s office this morning. It brings clarification to the announcement made at the CCCA AGM. Here is the email:

Hello everyone,

At the Cardinal Creek Community Association Annual General Meeting of June 10th, 2021, I announced that Orléans was successful in its application for a share of federal infrastructure funding. I’d like to correct the announcement and tell you that the pathway directly behind Caprihani will not be paved. This was a mistake and I own it completely. The project description in the application was misleading and not accurate in describing the pathway that needs rehabilitation and improvement.

The pathway that will be rehabilitated is east of the waterway, between Cardinal Creek Park and Coyote Trail park. The photo below accurately showcases the location. It is a pathway I use often when I walk with Elliot and Norman, and I am familiar with its condition. It can use some love as it is in much worse shape than the rest of the network in the park. It’s location along the waterway presents unique challenges for construction, but that does not mean we will neglect its state and let it deteriorate further.

It is standard practice for staff from infrastructure, or parks or social services to submit applications on behalf of the City of Ottawa for Provincial and Federal funding programs, even if they include very short construction timelines, and even shorter application windows. In this case, the nearest street needed to be included for reference and did not consider the pathway that IS behind Caprihani. The process is not perfect and I have connected with them in the last few days to review and share learnings. As more information related to this project becomes available, I will be sharing with the community and community association.

Announcements like this one rarely creates unanimity. I know that there are some that will delight at this news and others that will be upset. I also know that this episode has caused frustration and panic. For those unhappy with this new development, I offer my sincere apologies.

We have been and will continue to be at our best for our community when we collaborate. In the last few days, I received correspondence that included heated rhetoric and veiled language. This is unnecessary. It will not deter me from working hard for you, using every tool made available to me, pursuing any opportunities to invest in our community. Dollars from all levels of government play a critical role in making Orléans a community to live, work, play and accessible for all.

I take away learnings from this experience. For me, it continues to reinforce the value of public meetings and consultation. Some of our best ideas and opportunities have been the result of getting our community together to look over some plans and give you the opportunity to engage with me, my team and city staff. We, as residents, know our communities best and together we can move forward. I wholeheartedly commit to holding these meetings in person as soon as it is safe to do so. I am reminded of how much we support each other, as well as how much more effective and productive we are as a team when we work together instead of against each other.

As always, I am here for you. You can reach me at this email, or via phone at 613-580-2471.

– Matt

Notice of Weekend Lane at Jeanne d’Arc/Ramp Closures and Construction Work

Notice of Weekend Lane/Ramp Closures and Construction Work
April 30, 2021

As part of the Stage 2 O-Train Light Rail Transit (LRT) project, motorists as well as residents, whose homes are near the OR174, should anticipate weekend mobility impacts as crews working to complete drainage and utilities work. Over the course of the weekend, work will require the closing of eastbound lanes at Jeanne d’Arc Boulevard and the OR174 to facilitate work for the future Jeanne d’Arc LRT Station construction. In addition, lane closures in both direction between the Sir George-Étienne Cartier Parkway and Jeanne d’Arc Boulevard will take place.

What/ Where

OR174 Eastbound:

•    All lanes closed at the Jeanne d’Arc Boulevard and OR174 Interchange. Motorists will need to exit from the off-ramp to make their way over Jeanne d’Arc Boulevard to access the on-ramp to continue eastbound. Traffic will be directed by around-the-clock Duty Police.
•    Closure of the southbound Jeanne d’Arc Boulevard on-ramp to OR174 eastbound.

OR174 Westbound:

  • Reduced to one lane between Jeanne D’Arc Boulevard and Sir George-Etienne Cartier Parkway.
  • Residents near the Interchange can expect the following construction activities over the weekend to take place during day and night:
  • Drilling and installation of drainage and utilities will occur day and night which may result in audible noise and some vibration from equipment.

When

From April 30, 2021 at 9 pm to May 3, 2021 at 5:30 am.

Why

The contractor is continuing work along the OR174 during the weekend to complete drainage and utility work. This work is required prior to the beginning of construction on the future Jeanne d’Arc LRT Station.

OR174 Eastbound

 

 

OR174 Westbound

Anticipated Impacts

Noise and vibration from trucks and heavy equipment is expected.

For motorists travelling eastbound on OR174, an alternative route from St-Joseph Boulevard between Montreal Road and Jeanne d’Arc Boulevard will facilitate traffic flow for those wanting to access the Interchange area.

Motorists should adhere to detours, traffic control signage, posted speed limits, and use extra caution as traffic patterns change. Motorists should use caution and allow for added travel time when moving through active construction corridors.

For residents whose property borders the OR174 and the Jeanne d’Arc Interchange, equipment in the area may cause additional noise and occasional vibration as the work progresses. These activities are necessary to build the new Jeanne d’Arc LRT station and must be completed over the course of the weekend in order to provide a safe and operational traffic pattern on the OR174 when all ramps and lanes re-open on Monday morning. The City of Ottawa thanks residents for their patience as we work to complete these construction
activities.

Residents and motorists can expect additional OR174 Weekend Mobility:
Major Impacts during the upcoming weeks:

May 8-9, 2021:
westbound between Tenth Line Road and Orléans Boulevard; and eastbound at Champlain Street (Place d’Orléans)
May 15-16, 2021:
eastbound between Orléans Boulevard and Tenth Line Road; and
westbound between Jeanne d’Arc Boulevard and Sir George-Étienne Cartier Parkway

Notice of activities planned during these weekends will be provided in advance.

The safety of the public and the workers is paramount, and we thank you for your patience during construction.

Any changes to the duration or impact of this work will be only be communicated via the Stage 2 project newsletter.
