Re: Carlsbad Springs Community Association asking the NCC to release and sell frontage properties in the area in and surrounding the Carlsbad Springs village on Piperville Road and Russell Road.
Attention NCC Board members,
The Carlsbad Springs Community Association (CSCA) is asking the NCC to sell frontage properties that are situated on main roads in and around the village of Carlsbad Springs. The CSCA has identified these areas a potential growth to expand and beautify the village area. The CSCA is proposing that these frontage properties be sold in 1 acre or 2 acres lots to add additional land to bring newer homes to our community. This would create a better and more natural link between existing homes and also link the core areas such as the village, the Carlsbad Springs Community Centre, Harkness Park, the St-Laurent church and the old village area situated near Way and Spring Roads at Russell Rd.
A map below highlights the areas where these properties are situated. Additionally selling these properties would generate thousands of additional revenues for the NCC, funds that could be used to provide support to current and new NCC projects and initiatives.
These new properties would provide valuable locations for new families and bring a renewed vitality and natural growth to our village core if separated to create new 1 or 2 acre lots.
There has not been any new construction and new homes built in over 30 years due to limited availability of frontage property on Russell Rd and on Piperville Rd in Carlsbad Springs. This initiative would allow a way to attract new residents to our community.
Additionally the CSCA is requesting that land situated beside the Carlsbad Springs Community Centre be released and sold to the City of Ottawa. This land would be used to build a second baseball field situated beside the Centre at Harkness Park on Piperville Road.
The areas in red identified below are the locations where the CSCA is requesting that the frontage be sold to make it available for new homes in our community. Those areas identify in the map below have access to City of Ottawa water, high speed Internet with Rogers Cable and Hydro Ottawa services. They are all prime location for future residential rural homes in our community.
I would like to thank the NCC for reviewing our proposal and provide us information and a timeline on when this project can be implemented.
