Citizen Participation

Public consultations - February 19 and 22

On February 19 and 22, residents will be invited to take part in a new phase of public consultations on Rosemère's urbanistic vision. Since its launch in 2018, this unprecedented resident participation initiative in Rosemère has provided an opportunity to consult all of the parties concerned in the Town: residents, community organizations, business people and landowners. 

As it may be recalled, in the spring of 2018, the Town of Rosemère had developed a strategic vision, validated by residents, which was defined as follows: "Rosemère, a proud, green and prosperous town". This statement made it possible to identify the structuring project,“develop an urban vision respectful of Rosemère's identity”. A second series of consultations was therefore held in winter 2019 to validate the orientations and objectives of this urbanistic vision. In this perspective, a development concept will be presented to residents this coming February.Rosemerites will consequently be invited to take part in two consultation activities whose objective will be to present the vision in terms of the development concept of the village core hub (Grande-Côte Road sector) and the regional hub (Place Rosemère, the golf course and Labelle Boulevard) jointly developed by the Town and its stakeholders.These consultations will help the Town to make sure the urban vision respects the expectations of the community gathered throughout this process of citizen participation. The February consultations are the final step in this process before the development of the Rosemère Urban Plan. It is therefore in large numbers that the Town expects all Rosemerites during these consultations.

The first consultation activity will take place on Wednesday, February 19, 2020, 6:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m., at Externat Sacré-Cœur, in the form of round-table workshops focusing on the two hubs (the village core and the regional hub). It should be noted that registration is required in order to participate in this activity, write to or call at 450 621-3500, ext. 1219. Please provide your complete contact information, including your telephone number and email address.

The second consultation activity will be held on Saturday, February 22, 2020, 9 a.m. - noon, at Externat Sacré-Cœur, in the form of information booths. Various topics will be addressed at each booth, including mobility, density and urban development, natural and cultural heritage and the economy. No registration is required to take part in this activity, and residents may attend at their own convenience during these hours.To prepare well for this workshop, a participant's workbook will be distributed to all the citizens a few weeks before the consultations.


As part of our strategic reflection about the future of our community - Rosemère a proud, green and prosperous city - we are presenting the results of the survey conducted in last June, in which the Town presented the current state of its infrastructure and equipment and to gather your opinion on your level of satisfaction and your willingness to invest in them.

Rosemère, A Proud, Green and Prosperous City

The City of Rosemère is pleased to release the citizen consultation report held last March. This report presents the endorsement of the orientations and objectives of Rosemère’s urban vision.

These citizen consultations are part of the strategic approach to building the Rosemère of tomorrow

The Town of Rosemère is proud to publish the report on the public consultation held on the development of its vision for the future: "Rosemère, a proud, green and prosperous town".

Last spring, the Town of Rosemère initiated a participatory process (survey, public consultation, meetings, etc.) so that Rosemère residents could express their opinions on the statement of its new strategic vision, "Rosemère, a proud, green and prosperous town", and its impact on the sectors of urban planning, infrastructure/equipment and services to residents.

Through on online survey, May 10-27, Rosemerites were asked to express their views on various issues related to the upcoming legalization of marijuana by the federal government. This survey will help the Town gauge residents’ concerns and determine their social acceptance of this issue. 

"This civic participation process is a necessary step in the upcoming implementation of the new bylaw, so as to give residents an opportunity to express their opinions on this matter and to provide us with food for thought in this regard. Of course, this process will be carried out in harmony with our approach of proximity and transparency with our residents, in order to develop a bylaw that meets the needs identified by the population in the survey," explained Rosemère Mayor Eric Westram.

As for the legalization of marijuana, the Town wants to mention, as a reminder, that this decision does not come under municipal jurisdiction. "The bylaw will regulate consumption on our Town’s territory, but is not intended to determine its legalization; that decision comes under the jurisdiction of the federal government. The online survey is therefore not a forum for debate on the legalization of marijuana, but rather a means of helping us establish our own bylaw in the proper way, according to residents’ wishes," added the Mayor in his closing remarks.

Following this survey, the Town will make the findings of the survey public and will then proceed with drafting the bylaw in order to submit and adopt it this summer.

The Town of Rosemère would moreover like to thank the Town of Saint-Jérôme for its collaboration in the development of the survey questionnaire.
