Island Park Drive System Expansion Project and Community Meeting

From Hydro Ottawa, some news regarding a construction project along Island Park Drive taking place this year.


Dear Kitchissippi Community Association,

You are invited to attend an upcoming community information meeting regarding Hydro Ottawa’s plans for a system expansion project that will begin along Island Park Drive in the spring of 2014. This work is being undertaken to ensure reliability of the electricity supply in the growing Westboro area.

The meeting will be held on Thursday, January 30th from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Churchill Seniors Centre located at 345 Richmond Road. Residents of Island Park Drive and Kitchissippi ward Councillor Katherine Hobbs, have already been notified about this information session by direct mail. Hydro Ottawa will also be placing an advertisement in the January 23rd issue of the local EMC newspaper (attached). We would also invite you to post information about this meeting on your website to help us inform residents.

While the commencement of this project is months away we wanted to provide your association with as much advance notice as possible as there will be increased construction presence while the project is ongoing, including excavation activities and construction vehicles. Traffic control will also be implemented to ensure Island Park Drive remains accessible and safe for residents. Design drawings showing the construction zones and equipment storage areas, the planned locations of underground cables and chambers as well as details on how we will protect area trees and manage traffic flow, will be available at the information session.

Please contact Brian Thompson, Distribution Design, if you have any questions about this project. He can be reached at or613-738-5499 x7264.
