Carp Snow Disposal Facility

By mid-October, the City of Ottawa will have completed Phase 1 of the Carp Snow Disposal Facility, which included primarily the clearing of vegetation. Work for Phase 2 will then begin at 200 Westbrook Road, just off of Carp Road. Every effort is being made to reduce the duration of the construction impacts.

A new snow disposal site is needed to accommodate a capacity shortage servicing the west end of the City of Ottawa. This project has been in the works for several years but just received some funding assistance in recent months from upper levels of Government that has allowed the project to move forward. The Contractor, Thomas Cavanagh Construction Ltd., will perform the work for the City of Ottawa.

Phase 2 will include installing environmental measures, excavation, earth moving and stormwater piping. The new Snow Disposal Facility will include an entrance road, perimeter fencing, lighting, a snow stockpiling area, a snow meltwater pond and a stormwater management pond. The construction will also include berms, landscaping, tree planting and a turtle pond. Westbrook Road will be widened at the entrance of the Snow Disposal Facility to accommodate trucks turning into the site.

Construction is anticipated to commence mid-October 2017, with construction completion by December 2018. For additional information regarding the project please refer to the project website: Ottawa.ca.

If you have any questions on this project, you can contact the City of Ottawa’s Project Manager on this file, Jeff DeLoyde at Jeff.Deloyde@ottawa.ca. The contact for Cavanagh is Marten Doornekamp and he is available by email as well as: mdoornekamp@cavanaghconstruction.ca.

ITR Theatre Company

It’s the seventh game of the finals. Twenty years after a crushing defeat, the ladies have one opportunity for redemption. Will being shorthanded destroy their last chance of a comeback? This hilarious and touching comedy explores the roots of friendship, loyalty, and community. Join the ladies as they share their joys and woes… and drink beer… and eat chocolate...

Shorthanded – a Ladies’ Game highlights not only the “good old hockey game” but also the advances that women have made in traditionally male sports. This play has been rewritten especially for ITR by playwright Michael Grant as an all-female version of the hilarious, award-winning, original all-male Shorthanded. ITR is honoured to debut this new version. 

There are five performances to choose from.  Dinner shows are on October 21st & 28th at 6:00pm and are selling out quickly. There are still good seats available for October 20th & 27th at 7:30pm and the October 29th matinée at 2pm still has availability too.  All performances are at the Osgoode Community Centre, 5660 Osgoode Main Street, and doors open half an hour before show-time.  Tickets cost $20 for adults, $16 for students and seniors and $55 for the delicious dinner theatre.  As a special bonus, the playwright will be there on opening night and will host an optional Q&A after that show as well as after the first dinner show.
