I would like to advise residents that an Open House regarding the Kanata Light Rail Transit (LRT) Environmental Assessment (EA) Study will be held on Monday June 5th. The Open House will take place from 5:30-8:30 PM, with a presentation at 6:30PM at the Kanata Recreation Complex, Hall A (100 Charlie Rogers Way).
An EA is conducted prior to all large projects within the City of Ottawa to ensure that the area being built or developed on will not be negatively impacted by the construction. This future extension of the LRT will connect from the Western Moodie Extension and will travel north of Highway 417 in Kanata and then will end at the Canadian Tire Centre in Stittsville. While the majority of this route will be located in Kanata it is important to note it will bring benefits to Stittsville and also the surrounding communities of West Carlton and Rideau-Goulbourn. The west end Councillors have been working together on ensuring that the project timelines can be pushed forward to provide an increased level of transit service that is desperately needed to service Stittsville and our neighboring communities.
I would like to invite all residents to join the discussion regarding this phase of the LRT extension further into the west end including Stittsville. For more information on this EA please visit here.
