Throughout this consultation, citizens will be able to express themselves on a variety of themes, including: urban mobility, active transportation, preservation of built heritage, universal accessibility, architecture and housing, enhancement of green spaces, recreation, access to the banks of the Mille-Îles River, the environment, living together, public safety, businesses, densification as well as cultural and tourist attractions.

“The Urban Planning Department has done rigorous work to identify all of the issues to be explored. We are also supported by a firm specializing in land use planning and development, the Picbois cooperative, which has recognized expertise in facilitating exchanges and promoting collaborative participation. Ultimately, this exercise will enable the City to adopt a strategic urban plan for this sector,” said MMs. Kaeser and Cifola.

A consultation in several stages

Several tools will be used to promote this process: a questionnaire, an information session, an exploratory walk via podcasts, video clips from experts as well as thematic discussion groups.

Occasional meetings will be added to the activities where citizens will be able to express themselves on the future of this important artery. All the details, date, time and location of the activities are available on the City’s new citizen consultation platform, “On jase Boisbriand”. Documents, whether written or video, will be deposited there, including the territorial diagnosis carried out by Picbois. This is the current portrait of the Grande-Côte road: its constraints, its strengths and its challenges.

The city promises that everything will be done to facilitate participation in this process. “Our new citizen consultation platform is a versatile and essential tool for anyone wishing to express themselves. Personalized support and computer stations will be offered to anyone who requests it,” said Councillor Lori Doucet.
