Sidewalk likely scrapped over resident complaints

By Laura Osman, CBC News Ottawa, March 12, 2018

A priority sidewalk project in Orléans​ will likely be scrapped because of complaints from residents who don't want a sidewalk crossing through their driveways, a move one advocate calls a risk to public safety.

City staff deemed adding a sidewalk to the east side of Sunview Drive a priority to connect people in the neighbourhood to a local park, transit stops and a nearby school.

Councillors, however, voted to scrap the sidewalk from the city's pedestrian plan at a transportation committee meeting last Wednesday.
