Dear District 8 Residents,
I hope you are well and staying safe during these unprecedented times. I have put together this bulletin to keep you informed on the happenings in our district. To receive future bulletins electronically, please send me your email address to be more environmentally friendly.
- Sound Barrier Update: Court proceedings against the MTQ (Ministère des Transports du Québec) are taking place for the portion of the highway that was redone between Greene Ave and Blenheim. However, for the area between Atwater and Greene Ave, the extent of the existing highway, the MTQ is currently undertaking a feasibility study for a sound wall as this section is not affected by the court proceedings.
- The City is committed to the revitalization of St. Catherine Street and discussions with potential developers continue. The mixed-use development project at 4014-4022 is continuing at a slower pace than expected due to the pandemic and the demolition phase, as you may have noticed, is complete.
- The City continues to look at various potential ideas regarding the Tupper Parking Lots and to date, no plans have been established. However, I encourage everyone to participate in the Imagine Westmount 2040 Project (a complete revision of the City’s Urban Plan through a public participation process) at engage.westmount.org as it will have a direct impact on development in the area. Your input is important!
- The City is currently studying a proposal to introduce a crosswalk on Dorchester at the intersection of Clandeboye.
- 20 trees will be planted in our district this fall on various streets (Atwater, Columbia, Clandeboye, Bruce, Dorchester, Greene Ave).
- Repaving of Dorchester between Greene Ave and St. Catherine Street (westbound) is planned for 2021, pending budget approval by council in November.
- The City of Montreal is planning for the rehabilitation of its water-main network on Greene Ave between St. Antoine & Dorchester for 2022. Once this is done, the road will be repaved.
- Formal signage will be installed, indicating the public space on Greene Ave beside 5 Saisons.
- It is the City’s objective to have Weredale Lane open by this winter.
- The MTQ has agreed to install fencing between the highway and Selby Park.
