WHO DECIDES THE FUTURE OF MONTREAL ?
IS YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD NEXT?
Griffintown, a historic neighbourhood settled by mostly Irish immigrants in the early nineteenth century, is about to change into a megaproject with giant highrises, big-box stores and streets geared to cars instead of people.
Mayor Tremblay violated the spirit of his own past recommendations for consultation on urban development.
Citizens were not allowed to publicly question submissions.
The city's Office de consultation publique was kept out of the process.
The concerns of the Southwest borough's own urban planning service were ignored.
The Montreal Citizen Forum calls for real dialogue over the way our communities are developed.
In Griffintown, we want a people-friendly neighbourhood with mixed- use housing, small streets, locally-owned shops and a human scale. People fought to preserve the integrity of the Milton-Parc area and won!
WE MUST NOT ALLOW GRIFFINTOWN TO BECOME
A MODEL FOR DEVELOPER-DRVEN URBANISM.
