Jordan block returns to city control

Posted by wlpo on November 5, 2009

The Jordan Block in Ottawa is going back in the hands of the city.

          The Ottawa City Council this week approved an agreement with Heritage Harbor officials to extend water and sewer through their marina development in exchange for giving the Jordan Block back to the city.  The block has been primarily green space since the remaining burnt out buildings were demolished. 

          The sewer and water line work means about two and half million dollars in bonds.  The marina and city will split the cost.

          Besides extending water and sewer to the multi-million dollar Heritage Harbor project, the city also will bring more sewer and water capacity to the industrial park off Route 6.
