At the CCA general meeting on February 12, 2019, Melanie Knight, City of Ottawa’s planning department, gave an overview of the options being planned for three locations along Merivale Road.

The options are for:

  • the “Triangle” at Carling and Merivale,
  • the Merivale Circle opposite the corner of Thames and Merivale, and
  • the corner of Kirkwood Avenue and Merivale.

Each option shows two kinds of ideas: more traditional and more modern. However, Melanie told us that these are just ideas — no reason why there can’t be a blend of the two, with residents commenting on the features they like best.

Comments must be received by February 28, so the landscape architect has time to revise the plans by the end of March. The revisions will be the final plans, as the timeline for funding and construction completion are very tight.
