Summerside West Subdivision Expansion

Public Meeting: Summerside West Subdivision Expansion

Mattamy has applied to develop the next three stages of Summerside West

The applications are to develop approximately 39 hectares of land for over 750 residential units. The subject lands are between Mer Bleue Road and Tenth Line Road, south of Sweetclover Way and Mandalay Street, east of Renaud Road. The new community will include an elementary school block, a neighbourhood park and alterations to McKinnons Creek.



Cumberland Councillor Stephen Blais is calling for ALL party support for Bill 11, which will make permanent the Eastern Ontario Development Fund (EODF) and to ensure that all of Ottawa is included within the eligibility criteria for the fund.


Cumberland City Councillor Stephen Blais today was pleased to help officially open to the new LCBO store at the corner of Innes and Trim. This new 10,000 square-foot LCBO store brings additional service to the growing Orléans area of Cumberland Ward.

“The new LCBO is a wonderful addition to our growing community,” says Blais. “With its array of wines, spirits and beers, the new LCBO has something for everyone and will serve the diverse tastes of our community.”

Proposal to mark 400th anniversary of Champlain’s voyage goes to Ottawa city council committee

Ottawa should commemorate the 400th anniversary of Samuel de Champlain’s first voyage up the Ottawa River with children’s art contests and special menu items at local restaurants, says a proposal headed for city council’s finance committee next week.

The French explorer and eventual governor of New France headed through what’s now the capital region in 1613, searching for a great northern sea with the help of Algonquin guides. He founded no settlements in the area and turned back at Pembroke that year; he made it to Lake Huron on a second expedition in 1615.

Earlier this year, Councillor Stephen Blais asked city staff to come up with ways of marking the anniversary.

Habitat scales back Orléans project

A Habitat for Humanity housing project in Orléans is poised to go ahead after it was scaled down and redesigned to accommodate the concerns of opponents, the housing charity and area councillor say.

Johannes Ziebarth, the president of Habitat's Ottawa chapter, said Thursday that, after the new plan was unveiled at a community meeting Wednesday night, he believed most residents in the Notting Hill area were behind the project. Councillor Stephen Blais, who represents the area, agrees. He believes most people think the architectural and structural changes made to the proposed project on Nantes Street fit the character of the neighbourhood.
