community health care was presented. The Hospital Restructuring
Commission has done no planning for the transition from local
care to the "Big Box" care of the new Ottawa Hospital, which
will be the largest in Canada

- Francophone theatre. Karin a dit "non" à
la demande du Théatre Francophone pour une réquête
de $250,000. La ville n'a pas d'argent en ce moment.
- City parkland in Hunt Club. Karin Howard's office is
trying to determine percentage of city parkland west of McCarthy, as compared to east of
McCarthy. City only has 1991 census
data, 1996 data should be available in near future.
- Fence on Riverside Drive. Karin has some funds available
for construction. (See item below.)
- Development charges. Karin voted against the re-imposition
of development charges. A suggestion was made that development
charges should be are specific, especially to favor downtown
intensification at expense of urban sprawl.
- Heritage buildings on Sparks Street. Karin opposed use
as a parking lot while buildings remain. If buildings are removed
she would reconsider
- For city-related issues, call Karin Howard.
- Airport Parkway ramps. A request by the city to appoint a
member to a Bronson-Airport Parkway review panel was mailed on
- Moved by B. Royds, seconded by A. Brandel, that Fred McLennan
and alternate Alan Asselstine be HCCO representatives on this
- For more information, call Wendy Stewart.
- Stop signs at intersection of Cahill and Twyfold.
- City traffic engineers recommend that this intersection have
3 way stop signs to prevent accidents for drivers on Twyford turning
onto Cahill. The intersection is at a curve on Cahill and motorists
on Twyford have limited visibility for turning. There is also
a city park near that intersection and many children cross
Cahill at that point.
- Moved by B. Royds, seconded by A. Brandel, that the HCCO support
this if desired by adjacent residents.
- Hunt Club Neighbourhood Plan update:
- PAC met on September 25 to discuss draft Existing Conditions
- New head of study is planner Bob Spicer. Concern raised that
minutes and notifications of meetings are inadequate. Members
are not sure who are the members of PAC

of the McCarthy Woods and southern corridors boundaries but are
not ready to release it.
- Moved by Peter Foulger, seconded by Ted Requard, that the HCCO
request Councillor Karin Howard to ask Commissioner of Planning

the McCarthy Woods ESA to members of the PAC on the Hunt
Club Neighbourhood Plan by end of October and to provide a list
of all members of PAC and their voting status by the same time.

Bill Royds, seconded by Shelly Parlow, that the HCCO support a
safety audit by the PAC and city.

Drive and the Hackett Pond is suffering from salt pollution from
road runoff. Moved by Ted Requard, seconded by Fred Winters, that
the city be requested to build sound barriers (3m high) between
Riverside Dr. and Hackett Pond.
- Rink at Owl Drive. Although there is less available money
for rink operation, the HCCO felt it was a worthwhile operation.
Moved by F. Winters, seconded by F. McLennan, that the HCCO operate
a rink at Owl Drive park for the 1997-98 winter season.
