I'm looking for any info on this area. I haven't been to the sales center yet but from what I can tell, phase 1 only has one lot remaining. Does anyone know when phase two is released? The area is served by hydro one from what I can see and the street is a private. Does anyone know how much the common fees will be? Are the homes on natural gas?

Any other details would be nice.

I'm not from the subdivision but I have a bit of information on the servicing.
Diamondview has Hydro One for power, Enbridge natural gas and is on "city" water/sewer.

I put city in quotations because it's not City of Ottawa water, the water comes from a couple of wells in Carp. I've been told a water softener is still recommended. As for the septic, I believe that the developers of the commercial development near the Carp airport have put in a sewer system that also services the residential lots.

Phoenix Homes may only have one lot left but I think Mattino homes was also in there and may have some lots.

The water and sewer is a strange setup to me. I wonder if there are fees associated with the well water and sewer. Thanks for the info.

they have a water filter system is already in place so water will be filtered. And since each house has its own sewer ( which I think needs to be flushed out once in 4/5 years costing 400CAD ) I don't think we need to pay City for sewage charges ( which is pretty expensive)

THE HYDROONE WORKS ON DENSITY

High (Urban) Density Zone: >= 3000 customers and >= 60 custOMER/km
Medium Density Zone: >=100 customers and >= 15 customers/km
Low Density Zone: Areas that are not Medium or High Density

I AM PRETTY SURE WE ARE EITHER IN MEDIUM OR HIGH . PLEASE REFER TO BELOW LINK WHERE IT SHOWS THE RATES PER HYDRO BOARD AND DENSITY

PER 2017 , AVG HYDRO OTTAWA PER MONTH IS 96$ WHERE AS FOR MEDUIM DENSITY HYDRO ONE IT IS 107$. I DONT THINK IT IS A BIG DEAL

Ok, so it sounds like it's on a communal well and individual septic systems. As for Hydro One they are usually double the price Hydro Ottawa.

Do you know how much the common fees are for private street?

Not sure if hydro one is double but based on my research may be its 10 to 15 % more than hydro Ottawa

Common fees is around 100 , but note that property taxes are less compared to Kanata or barrhaven , so to me at the end it will all even out
