Carleton Place seeks architect to help with OVRT development

March 30, 2018 by

carleton-home-logo-colourCarleton Place is on the hunt for a Landscape Architect to help enhance its plans for Carleton Junction, the proposed section of the Ottawa Valley Recreation Trail which runs through the town.

The addition of a landscape architect was not in the original plans for the project, which currently has funds of over nine hundred thousand dollars in the town’s 2018 budget, but staff feels the work they do could form the basis of new grant applications that would allow the town to save money.

Aspects of Carleton Junction expected to be completed in 2018 include: parking, drainage, and lighting, as well as the paving of a section of trail between Carleton Place and Almonte.

The town is expecting to pay around ten thousand dollars to retain a landscape architect who will be responsible for designing gateways to the area, linkages to the trans-Canada trail from Stittsville, as well as a concept for a pavilion and outdoor stage.
