I recently met with representatives from Hydro One and Hydro Ottawa on their plans to maintain the corridor. I’ve also been in discussion with the Stewardship Council who are willing to help to clean up the corridor. At this time, there are pathways in the corridor and a community garden that was approved by Hydro One. The remaining lands are full of weeds, wild parsnip, poison ivy, ragweed, ticks and invasive species such as buckthorn and more. The idea is to clean it up and provide plantings that are low maintenance. To this end, Hydro One plans to cultivate the corridor and seed it with a mixture of grasses and wild flowers developed by the Suzuki Foundation. I will update my website with information on an upcoming public meeting about the hydro corridor as soon as a date and location has been decided.
