Suspicious behaviour that usually means a grow-op is taking place; strange hours, direct access from garage to home, excessive humidity, different smell etc... Recently in neighborhood: small swarming - kids pushed around at the skateboard park - Under control by the Police, they are aware of what is going on in the neighborhood. Door to door solicitation is always a concern. It is important to know your rights and what to do when someone comes to the door. For Example; you can ignore the door, ask them to leave, if they refuse to leave - call the police = trespassing. Recently there are some people going around saying that they need to test your water. They install a free filter for you, but the charge for the rest of their services is astronomical. It is unnecessary - City water is perfectly good to drink. Speeding: Lepine Construction Zone: people repeatedly speeding down maritime way (a lot of seniors in the area). Police officer: it must be documented - if there are no speed limit signs it means that the limit is 50km/hour. To get a speed reduction, you need a petition signed by 2/3 of the Seniors residence and the owners must be on board. - There is a possibility of getting a sign saying Elderly Persons Area. Speeding: is of highlighted attention right now - looking into speeding on certain roads in the community Intersection of Knudson and Campeau - difficult corner (speeding) Enforce bike lanes - going towards Earl of March - Kids ride their bikes on Campeau sidewalks and knock over walkers Why does the city not license bicycles? - hard to enforce, expensive.

Bicycles give way to the pedestrians - few cyclists ring their bells Sidewalks are not wide enough for bike lanes and there are bicycles lanes on Campeau Rumble strip - give cyclist the alert that a car has crossed the line Learn methods and techniques from going to cycling clubs - Kanata Cycling Association Councillors Report Transit and Road Work: - Upgrade water main on Kanata Ave. - widening of roads - work should be done in 2015 - Sewer lines: Minto is putting in - There is a lot of construction that is not City Construction - Park & ride going in - corner of Terry Fox and Innovation (have to finish environmental assessment) - Turtle nesting area - changes need to be made: Goulbourn Forced Road - 3 new parks are being developed (1 park = natural, 1 park = in Richardson Ridge, 1 park = later stage Richardson Ridge) - 2014 - underpass for future transit way and the road to go underneath - to exit centrum Woman in audience: would like community gardens - rather than parks.

Carp River restoration - finalizing documents now - work will start this coming winter (Queensway to Richardson Side Road) O-train - from 15min to 8min service (east end is the worst part) - more people can come up instead of going to Hurdman - in master transportation plan (has not been released yet) Giveaway weekend: anything you dont want place at the end of your driveway with a sign saying FREE try to give everything away or recycle --> instead of garbage disposal tell your neighbors spread the word more information on website Presto Cards: moving to full use of presto cards first card is free
