Hydro One/Beaverbrook update - Nov 2 2017

A public meeting was held on Oct 30, 2017 with an update from Hydro One on their plans for short (2018) and long term (to 2024) plans for Beaverbrook "Vegetation Management" in the Hydro corridor that borders the West side of Beaverbrook (bordering the Kanata Lakes Golf Course).  Hydro One will start consultations for work in Jan/Feb 2018 with affected home owners in coming weeks.

The KBCA directors and those community members - who have homes within the corridor - who participated in the discussions with Hydro One are pleased with the results, with Hydro One agreeing to all of the major proposals put forth by the KBCA/community member team with input from many of the families from the 124 affected homes.

A review of what has happened:

  • Starting in June, the KBCA has worked with Marianne Wilkinson, Terry Mathews & Community Members to research Hydro One and their clearing/trimming practices and to determine how to ensure that Hydro One follows a trimming strategy consistent with practices in 2012.
  • A core group including KBCA, Community Members, Marianne Wilkinson and Terry Mathews met with Senior Hydro One executives in Kanata on Aug 21st, where Hydro agreed to continue the 2012 trimming practices and to work with the Beaverbrook Community to find a better solution for the community.
  • Subsequent meetings have resulted in a proposal from Hydro One, which was well received by Beaverbrook residents in the Oct 30th public meeting.
Note: this proposal only applies to the West Beaverbrook Hydro One corridor. Hydro One has committed to providing a timeline for work on the North East Hydro One corridor (Lismer, Penfield) by the end of 2018 Q1 (March 1, 2018) and committed to a corridor specific meeting in that timeframe.
