Interprovincial Bridge - Ongoing deliberations by the National Capital Commission on where to place a bridge connecting Gatineau, QC, and Ottawa, ON, have caused concerned in several neighbourhoods in the east end of Ottawa, including Blackburn Hamlet, in regards to a heavy-use bridge being constructed near residential neighbourhoods. The NCC is considering three potential crossing options: Kettle Island, Lower Duck Island and Gatineau Airport/McLaurin Bay.
The BCA is strongly opposed to the Lower Duck Island option, since it would result in an influx of traffic, including heavy traffics into our community, cause damage to Green's Creek nature areas, and negatively impact recreational amenities all east-end residents value.
The BCA will continue to monitor progress on this initiative and will update our community accordingly.
Preserving our Greenbelt - The Blackburn Hamlet community is nestled within the Greenbelt, providing our residents with a natural oasis steps from our homes. Green and sustainable living is a key component of our daily lives, and being able to enjoy what nature has to offer is one of the reasons why those who live here know how important it is to preserve the Greenbelt for the future. The BCA is a strong advocate on behalf of protecting the Greenbelt and monitors any deliberations by the National Capital Commission or the City regarding the Greenbelt's future.
