March 2020 Newsletter

3rd Annual Community Winter Carnival was a success!

On Saturday February 15th, more than 50 community members came out to Jeanne d’Arc Park to enjoy some winter fun together.  There were games, maple taffy, and very popular tug of war competitions.  Thanks to the dedicated team of rink volunteers, the ice was also in excellent condition!

Thank you to everyone who came out, and for those who missed it this year, we have a photo gallery to share the fun that was had by all.  See you next year.

Orléans Corridor Secondary Plan Study Open House

The City is undertaking a review of land use in proximity to the Orléans Light Rail Transit Corridor and its four future stations. The goal is to prepare a new plan that will guide future development of neighbourhoods that are livable, resilient, affordable, support transit and complementary to existing neighbourhoods. The study will produce plans that identify permitted land uses, height and density of development as well as improvements to pedestrian, cycling and transit connections to and from the future stations.

At this first open house residents will have the opportunity to engage with city staff who will be undertaking the study in the coming months. Come and tell the City your ideas about future development in the Orléans corridor.

Date: Wednesday March 4, 2020

Time: 6:30pm to 8:30pm (presentation at 7pm)

Location: Shenkman Art Centre (245 Centrum Blvd)

Special thanks to Worry Free Snowplowing!

After the big dump this week, Worry Free blew the snow off the outdoor rink at Jeanne d’Arc Park (1155 St. Moritz Court). Thanks so much! It was a big help for all the volunteers who shovel and flood the rink all winter long.
