Moodie LRT station location irks Crystal Beach residents
Ottawa Citizen

By Jon Willing, Ottawa Citizen, September 5, 2017

The closest community to the future LRT station at Moodie Drive would rather see the stop built farther away from its residents.

It’s unlikely the city will budge on the proposed location at the northeast corner of Highway 417 and Moodie Drive, but the Crystal Beach/Lakeview community is urging council members to consider building the station on the west side of Moodie Drive instead.

The finance and economic development committee on Tuesday heard from members of the community association who said most residents don’t want the LRT station to negatively affect trails and wildlife areas in the green space off Corkstown Road. They also fear construction would exacerbate flooding along the pathways.
