Paving Scam

(Ottawa) — The Ottawa Police Organized Fraud Unit is warning the public about a new scam that has emerged in Ottawa. The Ottawa Police has received complaints from people who have “hired” paving contractors who come to the door, with promises of an inexpensive paving job for their lane. No paperwork is exchanged, a verbal price is agreed upon, and when the work is complete, they charge a much higher amount and pressure the purchaser to pay. The “salesmen” appear to be young white males, who speak with an Irish accent. The Ottawa Police Organized Fraud Section wants to remind the public that any contractor work should come with a signed hard copy contract, and that if any deal appears too good to be true, it probably is. Take the time to reflect on the deal before agreeing. There is no hurry to sign the deal at the door. Remember that once you agree to the work, you have to pay for the work, so that is why it is important to get a contract before the work starts. – 30 – CONTACT: Media Relations Section Tel: 613-236-1222, ext. 5366 @OttawaPolice read more

Reduced development requirements for minimum number of parking spaces….unfortunately approved

By-law 2016-249 amends the City of Ottawa Zoning By-law 2008-250. This by-law reduces and in some cases eliminates the minimum number of parking spaces required for development in the inner-urban area and near rapid-transit stations, consistent with the relevant policies of the Official Plan. It will also introduce incidental changes to required aisle widths in parking garages, minimum driveway widths and zoning rules governing car-sharing services. A minimum visitor parking requirement for residential uses is introduced in those parts of the Central Area where visitor rates currently do not apply.   A notice of appeal can be mailed to the City Clerk at 110 Laurier Avenue West, Ottawa, Ontario, K1P 1J1, or by delivering the notice in person, to Ottawa City Hall, at the Information Desk in the Rotunda on the 1st floor, 110 Laurier Avenue West.  A notice of appeal must be received no later than 4:30 p.m. on August 17, 2016.    For further information, please contact Tim Moerman, Planner, at 613-580-2424, extension 13944 or by e-mail at... read more
