Passed    Motion To: WHEREAS after public release of the Finance and Economic Development Committee (FEDC) Agenda 32, staff indicated there were discrepancies in the Background Section of the staff report titled ‘Application for Approval to Expropriate Lands for the Purpose of the Kanata South Link Project Pursuant to Section 4 of the Expropriations Act’ (ACS2017-CSD-CRE-0013) listed as Item 13 on the FEDC agenda; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Background Section of the report be amended as follows: In the 2017 Capital Budget, City Council approved funding for the Kanata South Link Project involving the widening of Hope Side Road, Old Richmond Road and West Hunt Club Road from Eagleson Hope Side Road to Highway 416. Motion TRC 34/5 requires that “any funds surplus to Old Richmond Road and West Hunt Club Road in Phase 1 of the TMP to be applied to Hope Side Road”. Therefore, a Preliminary Design of the entire Kanata South Link including Hope Side Road was required. The project is required to create road capacity and the widening will to minimize the impact on the Greenbelt lands and to protect the Stony Swamp Conservation Area and wetlands. The functional design consists of a rural road cross-section with paved shoulders within the Greenbelt and an urban cross-section for 500 metres on the west side of Old Richmond Road and along the north side of Hope Side Road. Two lane roundabouts are included at all intersections except at Moodie Drive, where signals are specified to reduce impacts on adjacent wetland. Following the completion of the Preliminary Design and updated cost estimates, the project scope was prioritized and work is proceeding to obtain both Federal and Provincial approvals. Detailed design is underway, following which the project tendering process will be initiated, with contract award scheduled for summer 2018 and construction is expected to start in 2018 subject to project permits (such as MOECC, MNRF, RVCA) and property acquisition. The City must acquire fee simple interests in property from the National Capital Commission and two private property owners to support the widening of the roads. In order to meet construction timelines, the City requires the ability to acquire property interests by expropriation, if necessary. The purpose of this report is to seek Council approval for the initiation of expropriation proceedings with respect to certain property interests required in connection with the Kanata South Link Project as more particularly described in the draft by-law attached hereto as Document 1.
