Announcement of the 2018 Fleurons du Québec rankings - Rosemère Still on Top with “5 Fleurons”!
ROSEMÈRE, November 16, 2018– The Town of Rosemère is still a “5 Fleurons” community! The good news was announced last night, November15,2018, at a gala evening where the 2018 horticultural classification rankings of municipalities across Quebec were unveiled.
The Corporation des Fleurons emphasized Rosemère’s multiple efforts to sustainably beautify its living environment and enhance residents’ quality of life. The Town rose to the highest ranking of “5Fleurons” in 2015 and has maintained this classification ever since.
“Only a handful of communities in Quebec can say they have achieved 5Fleurons status– and kept it! This honour not only speaks to the unique and sought-after charm of Rosemère, but also confirms that ours is one of the most beautiful municipalities in the province,” said Mayor Eric Westram. “We share this accolade with our residents, merchants, institutions and Town employees, who together shape the landscape of our community with such skill and finesse. Congratulations, one and all!”
The Fleurons rankings are valid for a three-year period and come with a professional assessment report indicating suggested areas for improvement. The Corporation’s classification officials visit 60% of the territory of each participating community and evaluate all sites in public view.
