From the Ward 3 Office
Update from Councillor Hill - December 15, 2023
Regarding the Barrhaven Downtown Civic Centre we spoke to the transportation infrastructure requirements, land acquisition processes, key stakeholders and engagement requirements and project scoping/phasing. I am happy to say that despite the complexity and enormity of this project, 2024 will see some tangible outcomes. There is now a City working group that meets weekly who are looking at the application of the Federal/Provincial Grant programme and implementation process. The biggest concerns that I have right now is that the costing analysis was done pre-COVID and as such we will need to revisit the overall budget requirements and timelines, but I will be working hard with all stakeholders on this issue over the winter.
