Good Shepherd Square: Construction Update

An update from the construction folks on the Good Shepherd Square development: Councillor McHattie: As part of Good Shepherd’s commitment to provide updates to you and your constituents on the construction activity at the Good Shepherd Square, please be advised as follows for the week ending August 21st: Work Underway: the installation of caissons for support of the excavation along Pearl has progressed well. The dry weather conditions of the past week assisted in the progress. About half of the caissons are installed with the steel supports grouted into the augered openings. Work next week: It is anticipated that the caisson installation will continue all week. Work will also begin with the installation of the storm sewer piping along the property line of Pearl Street. Other site offices or trailers may also be installed. Next few weeks: caisson installation will continue.

I trust this information will assist you and your constituents. Peter C Lampman Housing Development Consultant Good Shepherd...

Strathcona Transportation Plan update

We are awaiting the results of the studies and a decision by Metrolinx which should come by this November. This means that the Strathcona Master Transportation Plan should be up and running again by January 2010. Just to remind you the Strathcona Secondary Plan (the master land use planning document for the neighbourhood) was also put on hold, wating for the Transportation Plan, and this will move ahead in 2010 also. In the meantime, please visit the website location below which contains all of the community feedback received to date on transportation challenges in Strathcona.

Please see all information on the Strathcona Master Transportation Plan at Thanks,...
