1st Street and 6th Avenue Residents ~ July 24 2015

We have received a couple of inquiries about the space of land between the new sidewalks and private properties.  Please rest assured that this 'no mans land' will be dealt with in some fashion.  The gravel that is being placed at this time is temporary as, for safety reasons, there can not be a 'drop' onto the private properties.  The contractor doing the road work does not do landscaping and so that part of the project will have to wait until the whole project is completed.  Council will be reviewing the finishing portion of the local improvement on July 28th, and of course will be advising residents once they have a plan. Council is not in a position to finalize this matter until the work is completed on all three streets.

UPDATE ON ROAD CONSTRUCTION ~ July 23 2015

1st Street from the curve just north of 1st Avenue intersection to the intersection with 2nd Avenue will be closed starting today for approximately one week.

RESIDENTS OF 6TH AVE ~ July 13 2015

The Town Office has been in touch with Loraas Disposal and they are asking residents to put garbage/recycling carts on either 1st Street or 3rd Street (whichever is easier for you to get to) for pick ups on Friday mornings.  Please make note of the seriel number on your bin to avoid having them go back to incorrect addresses.  And please ensure there is at least 4 feet between each of the bins.

RESIDENTS OF 6TH AVENUE ~ July 10 2015

Construction on 6th Ave will begin with curb, gutter and sidewalks followed by road construction.  Work will commence on MONDAY, JULY 13th and will be ongoing for three weeks, up to and including the long weekend in August. This will mean no traffic or parking on 6th Avenue during these weeks.   Please ensure that any vehicles or trailers you may need to access are suitably relocated during this construction period.  School is out so there may be potential to park on 4th Avenue as well as 3rd Street.  Though inconvenient Council trusts you will be pleased with the result.  The entire pavement project is expected to be complete by the end of  September so please bear with us during the time of construction. 

July 7 2015 - Local Improvement:  After many years of discussion, consultation and planning, the Council is pleased to advise that the Local Improvement for 1st Street, 6th Avenue and Pauls Crescent will be moving forward.  The Construction Bylaw was passed at the Council meeting on July 6th. The tender was awarded to Paramount Paving and you will see them moving into the community by mid July with a target completion date in September or October, weather dependent.  During the course of construction there will likely be a need to drop off information regarding parking, construction time lines and the like.  If you live on one of the streets affected, please keep an eye on your mailbox as the notices will be hand delivered.  They will also appear on the Town of Osler website.  The location and timing of work is currently being compiled and it is anticipated that work will commence with 6th Avenue.  Please be patient with changes to traffic patterns, parking and possible street closures.  If the weather cooperates this project will be completed in 3 months and under budget, possibly as much as 15%.  A saving passed on to the property owners.
