I'm of the opinion that Edenwylde would be a quieter community since it seems to have higher bungalows to towns ratio and also with public transit running through Bobolink.

Do we know when the public transit will start running through Bobolink? Actually for us that was a pro decision for Westwood.

Do we know for sure whether OC busses will run on Bobolink Ridge? Has anyone come across the details for future bus routes in Westwood?

Welcome to the neighbourhood!

IMO, the real key to developing public transit in this entire area is the city getting off their collect butts and completing Robert Grant Avenue so that it can be developed into the major artery with rapid transit as is planned for the future, but that the area will quickly need.

We also bought in this area because we want to live in a lively neighbourhood. With the only public junior/senior high school (2022) in Stittsville, an elementary school (site plans submitted last week for cope drive), the town centre with shopping (still in planning, but penequitys website shows committed tenants) and the proposed high rise apartments (variance hearing coming soon) and 2x park and ride's planned, this area is going to be bustling with activity and in dire need of completed infrastructure without considering the parks and any other schools which could be built.

Glen Gower has supposedly had the start of Robert Grant completion moved up to 9 years, but that's not nearly soon enough. The developers are willing to front the cost and receive payment on completion so that's a something, but with Fernbank rd not slated for upgrade until after 2030 I firmly believe Robert Grant avenues completion is of paramount importance to enable efficient transit in the area.

Hey! This is such helpful information. I was under the assumption that Robert Grant would be done much sooner, reading up on all the news articles now!

When we were looking at the area Robert Grant was slated to be completed 2020-25, only after we moved in did we learn it had been pushed off to post 2030. I don't know how or why that happened, I only hope it gets pushed up a lot sooner than the 9 years mentioned now and that we get a grocery store in the town centre soon.

Here' info on the shopping area from 2015, no official plans yet:

Info on the junior and high school:

https://app01.ottawa.ca/postingplans...appId=__BM01ZM

Info on the high rise apartments:

https://app01.ottawa.ca/postingplans...appId=__BIIOQP

Info on an LCBO and stores near Walmart:

https://app01.ottawa.ca/postingplans...appId=__BPKX1V

Info on the elementary school which I don't think has funding yet:

https://app01.ottawa.ca/postingplans...appId=__BPT4BV

Info about Robert Grant being delayed until after 2031 and how that's been sped up:

https://www.glengower.ca/notebook/co...nfrastructure/

"extension of Robert Grant Avenue would be moved up to nine years from the current 2026-2031 time frame completion dates. He continues to push on this project overall. “Front ending finances are now an option to get it done, the developer will initially pay for the road extension, with the City reimbursing the developer upon completion.”"

I visit glengower.ca and stittsvillecentral.ca often and if I'm really bored I browse the service Ottawa site to see what's going on https://app01.ottawa.ca/postingplans/home.jsf?lang=en.

Thanks for these. Stumbled on this link also on the proposed high rise along Robert Grant.

https://stittsvillecentral.ca/1000-r...e-for-concern/

Having this development "might" probably speed up the infrastructure development within the area.

It's great to see all this helpful information. I also hope that these many projects will force the infrastructure to develop faster. I don't understand where all these tax dollars are going if not to support the area's paying it all!
