Moving into the community of Greystone Village? If so please take a couple minutes to read through our “Homeowner’s F.A.Q” or download the book.
Who’s responsible for the vegetation in front and around my home?
The landscaping around your home is designed as a low maintenance feature with consideration for the environment using native species. For your convenience, for the first 2 years starting in the fall of 2017 the developer has hired a contractor to maintain the trees, shrubs,
and perennials, along with the mowing maintenance for the grassed
areas to help the vegetation get established. Note, this does not include backyards of the houses on Clegg Street.
After 2 years, starting in the fall of 2019, each Owner is responsible to maintain their own property front and back, including the boulevard it fronts onto. Corner properties are responsible for the side boulevards as well.
If there is a tree planted in front of your property, we encourage you to water regularly to promote the health and longevity of your community’s street trees. We’ve taken extra measures to support strong and healthy urban trees in this community.
Who is responsible to plow the snow around my home?
The City is responsible for plowing the snow on all public roads. This includes the road in front of your home,unless it ends with a suffix ‘Private’. Visit the City’s website for their snow removal maintenance policy: www.ottawa.ca.
Snow clearing of private roads and rear lanes are managed and paid for through your Joint Use Agreements. Until 2018, the developer will
assist by entering into and managing the snow clearing contract on your behalf,to allow new residents time to move in and establish a board, who will then manage the contract.
Owners are responsible for clearing their own walkways and driveways.
GARBAGE AND RECYCLING PICKUP
Who picks up my recycling and garbage and where do I put it on pick-up day?
The City of Ottawa is responsible for picking up your garbage.
Call311 or go to the City’s website at www.ottawa.ca for a pick-up schedule. Garbage and recycling are to be placed in front of your homes as
described further below:
- For Clegg Street homes, this is at the end of your driveway
- For homes fronting Philosopher Private, a pad is located at the corner of Philosopher Private and Telmon Street
- For all other homes (towns and singles), a pad at the end of your walkway
For your convenience, all homes are fitted with storage hooks and recycling bins, along with a cart for transporting these bins.
Where do I pick up my mail?
All new communities are now serviced by community mail boxes. Canada Post no longer delivers mail to your door. To check which box is assigned to you, please contact Canada Post directly at
1-866-607-6301. Canada Post’s mailbox will be temporarily located at the end of Philosopher Private until construction in your community is completed. When the time comes, the mailbox will be relocated to its final location on De Mezanod Avenue, near the corner of Telmon Street
Can I park my vehicle in the rear lane? Where do my guests park?
Residents can park their vehicle in their garages and, if there is enough room, in their driveway. Do not park vehicles in the rear lane. The lanes must stay clear of any obstructions.
The streets in front of your home were designed with street parking
where your guests can park. Please refer to the City of Ottawa’s street parking by-law for rules and restrictions.
This community is designed to meet LEED neighbourhood standards,
placing the focus on people before cars. Vehicle parking is limited. There are many transportation options available to residents of this community including connections to the City’s Multi-Use Pathway network, the Lees LRT Station a
short walk away, and access to vrtucar, a car share program, strategically placed within your community.
TRAFFIC AND ACCESS DURING CONSTRUCTION
How do I get to my house while the community is under construction?
You’re one of the first residents to move into the new Greystone Village community.
This means you will experience some construction during the first few years until Greystone Village is completed. During the first year (from 2017 to 2018),
we will direct resident traffic to exit and enter from Clegg Street on a temporary basis.
Construction vehicles will be directed to use Hazel Street and des Oblats Avenue, and avoid using Clegg Street.
Please respect posted signage and safety fencing around construction zones.
Limiting access during construction is for your safety
