    7.1. Halloween Wrap-Up

    Whereas the RPCA’s Halloween Activities for 2020 were an unqualified success, despite the precarious nature of the pandemic; and
    Whereas community fundraising efforts greatly exceeded expectations, generating a surplus that is expected to be over $1,000 when the account is settled; therefore
    Be it resolved that the RPCA recognize the generous support of the community and the tireless efforts of all the volunteers who organized and promoted the events, bought and delivered candy and toys, assembled and distributed treat bags, wrote and read spooky stories, collected and donated pumpkins, paid or reimbursed bills, researched city bylaws and public health restrictions, shared their costumes online, and otherwise helped to retain the magic of Halloween for local children; and
    Be it further resolved that 50% of the fundraising surplus be donated to the Ottawa Food Bank in the name of the RPCA and Riverside Park residents, and the remaining 50% be used to subsidize future community events.

BY-LAW AMENDMENTS (Served with due notice)

Any by-law of the Corporation may be amended at any general meeting of the Corporation provided that the amendment is proposed in writing by the Board of Directors, or is proposed by a member of the Corporation and given in writing tothe Secretary, and provided that notice of the proposed amendment, and at least a general summary of the amendment, have been reasonably publicized in the area at least ten days in advance of the general meeting.

Proposal to Amend By-Law 9 (Moved: Joel Duff/Barbara Haines. September 15, 2020)

Whereas the RPCA is a not-for-profit organization incorporated under the laws of Ontario, the language recommended under the Ministry of Consumer Services’ Default By-laws streamlines terminology for greater accessibility; therefore  

Be it resolved that the RPCA by-laws be amended to be more consistent with our governing legislation, by renaming the Article 9 from “General Meetings” to “Meetings of the Members”; and

Be it further resolved that throughout the by-laws, “General Meeting” be replaced with “Special Meeting of Members,” and “Annual General Meeting” be replaced with “Annual Meeting of Members.”

Proposal to Amend By-Law 10.2 (Moved: Joel Duff/Travis Croken. September 15, 2020)

Whereas the area names used to describe the Riverside Park neighbourhood should be updated to reflect location names used by residents, where they exist;

Whereas residents in “Riverside Park East” often refer to the neighbourhood as “General Vanier” (ie. Neighbourhood Watch and Annual Garage Sale), and residents of “Riverside Park East” most often refer to the neighbourhood as “Mooney’s Bay” (ie. Mooney’s Bay Child Care Centre); and

Whereas the similar names of 4 areas causes confusion within the neighbourhood; therefore

Be it resolved that the areas of the Riverside Park neighbourhood, as described in By-law 10.2 and depicted on the Association’s Neighbourhood Map, be renamed as follows:

  • “Area 1 Riverside Park East” will be renamed “Area 1 General Vanier”;
  • “Area 2 Riverside Park West” will be renamed “Area 2 Mooney’s Bay”;
  • “Area 3 Riverside Park Southeast” will be renamed “Area 3 Riverside Park East”;
  • “Area 4 Riverside Park Southwest” will be renamed “Area 4 Riverside Park West”;
  • Area 5 Revelstoke” will remain unchanged.

Proposal to Amend By-Laws 9 and 6 to clarify and comply with requirements for treatment of year-end financial statements (Moved: RPCA Financial Review Committee)

Given that:

  1. RPCA is incorporated in Ontario as a Not-for-Profit;
  2. For fiscal 2021, RPCA is a ‘soliciting corporation’ under Canadian Not-for-Profit Act (CNCA), enacted 2013, and a ‘public benefit corporation’ under Ontario Not-for-Profit Corporations Act (ONCA), passed 2010;
  3. With current annual revenues less than $50,000, under both CNCA and ONCA, RPCA may currently dispense with appointing a public accountant, and that future RPCA annual revenues will dictate when RPCA must engage a public practice auditor or accountant.  
  4. Under governing legislation, RPCA can, and does, conduct a Compilation; and,
  5. RPCA Board votes to approve the financial statements upon consideration of the Financial Review Committee’s recommendation;

Therefore, be it resolved that the following three by-laws be amended to read:

9.4 Financial Review Committee: At least one month in advance of the end of the fiscal year of the Corporation, the Board shall appoint a Financial Review Committee of other than its directors and officers, from among individuals who understand the role of an independent review of the financial records and have a basic understanding of bookkeeping. The purpose of the Financial Review Committee is to provide an independent evaluation of the financial reports and records for the purpose of reasonably verifying the reliability of the financial reporting and to determine whether the Corporation’s assets are being safeguarded. The Financial Review Committee will review a compilation of the financial statements of the Corporation as prepared by the Treasurer, along with any supporting documentation the Committee may wish to review. The independently reviewed financial statements shall be presented at the next annual meeting of Members.

9.5 At every annual meeting of Members, there shall be offered a report by the President on the activities of the Board, a report by the Treasurer on the financial position of the Corporation, a compilation of the financial statements of the Corporation reviewed by the Financial Review Committee and approved by the Board, and any other report considered desirable by the Board.

6.2 At least one Member of each committee, except the Financial Review Committee and the Nominating Committee described in Sections 9 and 11 respectively, shall be a Member of the Board.  Additional Members may be appointed from the Corporation’s Members or at the discretion of the Board, from residents living within the Corporation’s neighbourhood.

NOTICE OF MOTIONS

Except for amendment of the By-laws of the Corporation, members of the Corporation may consider and transact any business of the Corporation at any general meeting without notice of the business having been given.

However, the following motions were served in advance of the meeting:

Motion to receive the October 2, 2019 Annual General Meeting (Moved: Board of Directors. November 6, 2019)

Be it resolved that the minutes from October 2, 2019 Annual General Meeting of the Riverside Park Community and Recreation Association be received.

Motion to receive the 2019/2020 Financial Statements (Moved: Board of Directors. September 16, 2020)

Be it resolved that the 2019/2020 RPCA Financial Statements be received, as per the recommendation of the RPCA Financial Review Committee.

Other motions may be moved without notice, in accordance with the RPCA By-Laws.

As Ottawa residents respond to the global COVID-19 pandemic, one neighbourhood has come together to launch a brand-new community garden, aimed at sharing gardening skills and improving the local food supply.

Ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Mooney’s Bay Community Garden
Monday, July 13, 2020 at 9:30 am
Riverside Mall, 729 Ridgewood Ave, Ottawa, ON K1V 6M8

The official ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Mooney’s Bay Community Garden is open to media and the public, but it will be a COVID-conscious event (masks required). It will also provide photo opportunities with local community gardeners.

“We are excited to create gardening opportunities for so many diverse families in our community,” said Riverside Park Community Association (RPCA) President Joel Duff. “This is a good news story about neighbours working together with local government and developers to create inclusive, supportive and sustainable communities. Food is vital to life, and it also brings people together in fantastic ways.”

The Mooney’s Bay Community Garden is a project of the RPCA and is temporarily located at the site of a vacant grocery store at the Riverside Mall, while the mall’s new owners confirm plans to redevelop the land. Local families will be tending their own garden plots, and a portion of the harvest will be designated for donation. The project was made possible by the generous support of River Ward Councillor Riley Brockington, and site owners, Brigil Construction.

Email your specific questions (keep it to 1 or 2) ahead of time to Kate Cathrae and we’ll do our best to answer them during the meeting: RiversideParkGardening@gmail.com

A follow up session at 7:15pm will allow for live question.

Telsing Andrews has been growing in the Ottawa area for 16 years. She has been an edible landscaper, owned a seed company, was a homesteader and an independent plant breeder. Most of all, she loves watching the ecosystem shift and turn year in and year out.

Patricia Wallinger is a leader in the community advocating for fair working conditions and improvement of the environment. One of the ways that she accomplishes that task is through her company, Amano Gardens, which is a social enterprise and ecologically friendly landscaping business.

This workshop will give you all the basics you need to know to get started in vegetable gardening. I’ll go through soil, watering, feeding, and give you some tips and tricks for discouraging pests from eating your veggies before you do. I’ll also give you some resources to help you throughout the season so that you can feel more confident as harvest time approaches.

This workshop is offered free of charge, but if you are in a financial position to do so a $5 donation (sent via etransfer) would be appreciated. Email: carolinefinegardening@gmail.com to register.

Caroline Agnew is the owner of Caroline Fine Gardening. She’s worked as gardener, treeplanter, and community garden coordinator for nearly twenty years.

She has given gardening workshops around Ottawa through both Just Food and Canadian Organic Growers. She loves teaching about gardening and helping people get the best from their gardens.

Do you have extra seedlings leftover? Did you buy a whole package of peas but only planted a few? Are you splitting up your hostas? Thinning your echinacea? Pots you won’t use?

On May 23-24, 2020, put your extras to the curb! Share what you’ve got and help get our neighbourhood growing!

We have free tomato seedlings to give away to the first 100 Riverside Park residents who sign-up to participate, courtesy of Amano Gardens. If you live between Brookfield Road and the McCarthy Woods, and between the Rideau River and the Airport Parkway, then that includes you.

Confirm your participation and we’ll deliver your seedling this weekend.

A public information session on crime, safety and community policing in Riverside Park will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Wed. Mar. 4, 2020 at the Riverside Churches (3191 Riverside Dr., Room 6).

Community Liaison Officer Marcus Cibischino has been invited to share news about changes to Ottawa’s community policing structure and how it will impact our community. It will also be an opportunity for residents to learn about any key issues in our neighbourhood and to ask questions of our local constable.

There is no cost to attend and everyone is welcome.

If you live in Ottawa Mooney’s Bay neighbourhood, you have the opportunity to get active in your community. 

The Riverside Park Community Association has a vacancy for the Riverside Park West Area. Our association gives voice to local residents and works to improve our neighbourhood through advocacy and social events.

Our community association is run by dedicated volunteers, who hold monthly public meetings to discuss community concerns, meet with our city councillor and coordinate community-run initiatives, like traffic calming, family-friendly events, and community skating rinks.

This interim position is a great way to give community involvement a try. The term of office will begin in March and end in October, when an election can be held for a two-year term of office. Read more about this position in the RPCA Bylaws, Articles 5 and 10.

Priority will be given to candidates who live in the Riverside Park West area, but if none come forward, a candidate from elsewhere in the Riverside Park neighbourhood can be elected.

The election will take place at the RPCA Board of Directors meeting on March 4, starting at 7:00 p.m. Candidates simply need to submit a short statement of interest: president@riversidepark.ca

The February RPCA Board of Directors Meeting will take place on Wednesday, February 5 to discuss what’s happening in our neighbourhood and how residents can get involved!

Part of an email received from the Giver show: “If you would like to come out and meet us, we will be in Ottawa on June 1st at the Carleton Heights Community Centre from 4-8 pm for our casting and volunteer open house. We will be seeing kids on a first come first serve basis but if you can’t make it that’s totally understandable and your email application will still be considered.

We would also like to stress that even if you are not cast as one of the main Giver Kids, you would still be more than welcome to come to the park this summer to volunteer on the build and help the community.

Issue

With the mild spring weather, City crews are repairing potholes and clearing catch basins.

Key Facts

Pothole repairs

  • 18 crews are dedicated to filling potholes across the City.
  • To date in 2015, crews have filled approximately 13,500 potholes across the City.
  • It’s routine at this time of year for potholes to appear, especially with freeze-and-thaw conditions. Rain and mild temperatures following a stretch of sub-zero conditions creates stress on the asphalt road surface which can then form potholes.
  • Residents are encouraged to use the ServiceOttawa gateway at ca or call 311 to report potholes.

 

Catch basins

  • City crews are out clearing snow and ice from catch basins to facilitate water drainage and to reduce pooling.
  • Staff are concentrating on priority roads. Crews are also working on residential streets and responding to service requests as they are received.
  • With 56,000 catch basins in the city, it is appreciated if residents help by clearing catch basins near their home as much as possible and where it is safe to do so.
  • Please report catch basins covered in heavy snow and ice to the City online at ca.
