Ottawa’s 2nd Annual Emergency Service Event – 9 RUN RUN
On October 22, families and friends will be running/walking in a ½ Marathon, 10k or 3 K Family Fun Walk/Run as part of the City’s 2nd Annual 9 Run Run.
Last year 9 RUN RUN raised an outstanding $16,911.10 for youth substance
abuse. This year
This project, conducted by the ROMHC, in collaboration with local school boards, will get young people talking about mental health, while working to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness.
Roads that will be affected are Abbott Street, Stittsville Main Street,
Flewellyn, Munster, Fernbank and Jinkenson Road starting at 7am. Only Abbott
Street East from Moss Hill to Main Street will remain closed for the duration of
the event (approximately 7am -1pm). Some delays are to be expected.
Rick Hansen Relay
Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Rick Hansen Man in Motion World Tour.
Come welcome and encourage the Stittsville medal bearer from 5-5:45 pm at the
Goubourn Recreation Complex.
That same drive and determination has been embraced by the Rick Hansen
Foundation— a registered charity established in 1988—to raise awareness of the
potential of people with disabilities, accelerate progress in building inclusive
communities and achieve breakthroughs in spinal cord injury (SCI) research. For

5769 Fernbank Rd Development
The applicant has submitted a plan of subdivision and zoning application for this 4.55 hectare site located along the north side of Fernbank Road, less than a kilometre east of Shea Road, and west of Terry Fox Drive.
The proposed development will contain approximately seventy single detached dwellings along three north‐south local roads. Site density for the proposed development is achieved at 25 per net hectare which is slightly lower than the density target established for low density land use in the Fernbank Community Design Plan.
