Regional Councillor, Wendy Stewart submitted a report.
Request to delay HC Neighborhood Plan study: Peter Foulger sent a letter to the Region asking that consideration of the Hunt Club Neighborhood Study be delayed until we have a new City of Ottawa councillor to replace Karin Howard and until the transportation issues could be resolved. The region said that consideration would be delayed until after February 1999. Steve Lion of the Region wrote that the 1500 new housing units proposed east of Riverside Drive would have serious implications for traffic on Riverside Drive. His reservations are noticeably absent from the NCC report "Southern Corridor Transportation Planning, October 1998". For more information, contact Peter Foulger.
