Shaping the Rosemère of tomorrow in respect of the community
ROSEMÈRE, December 9, 2019–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. "Through this democratic process, we will find the right balance between Rosemerites' needs and expectations in order to develop a town that reflects who we are and that brings us together," emphasized Eric Westram, Mayor of Rosemère.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
"Since taking office in November 2017, we have adopted a management approach that values proximity, transparency, attentive listening and dialogue with our community. Our resident participation process in the urbanistic vision project is definitely based on these values. We are taking the final step in the urbanistic vision project and the resulting planning program will reflect our community and enable us to make Rosemère a proud, green and prosperous town," added Rosemere Mayor Eric Westram.
