An open house to discuss a management plan for the Blanding’s turtles and storm water drainage in the Beaver Pond area has been postponed.
The meeting, which was to be held on Jan. 30, will be rescheduled as soon as possible said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson in an email.
City consultant AECON was to present its primary findings on the drainage study of Watts Creek and Shirley’s Brook, as well as a management plan for Blanding’s turtles, an endangered species located in the South March Highlands and Kizell wetlands. The meeting has been postponed due to incomplete information at this time, said Wilkinson.
“I will be meeting with staff to go over the outstanding information requirements to set a firm date for this meeting as soon as possible,” she said.
The study will provide a background that can be used to develop a drainage plan for the Beaver Pond area, which includes lands owned by KNL Developments, a partnership between Urbandale and Richcraft Homes.
The meeting and discussion could impact future developments and will provide an opportunity for the public to make comments before the final draft report is sent to a last public meeting, said Wilkinson.
