Public presentation of the plan for the future of the rivière Rouge corridor
On January 26, 7 pm, the municipality of Grenville-sur-la-Rouge will complete its process of citizen participation at the Town Hall, by presenting a plan for the future of the Rivière Rouge corridor which is based on five previous public consultations and a survey that attracted the participation of over 120 people to this point in time. The initial objective was to better understand the community needs, in order to propose a plan that would guide various public and private interventions, which would contribute to social progress, protection of the environment, and the development of recreo-touristic activities, in accordance with the aspirations of the population.
"We are very proud to have advocated a basic approach of civic discussion and to have been able to take into account the concerns of all the people concerned" stated Mayor John Saywell. "In addition to protecting the environment, social acceptability was an important prerequisite for any project related to the development of the territory. We firmly believe that it is “mission accomplished.” We hope that all those who participated in the discussions to date, as well as the public at large, will attend this presentation of the proposed development plan for the Rivière Rouge corridor."
Note that meetings and conversations, as part of public meetings, were held in various sectors of the municipality (Pointe-au-Chêne, Harrington, Avoca), that social, ecological and economic inventories have been prepared, a survey was conducted and a general assembly was convened in order to arrive at a concept plan which will guide development projects that can be put forward by the Municipality.
Mayor Saywell added: "This evening is certainly meant to be the end of an initial process, but it is also the beginning of the valorization of a vast territory, centered on a sustainable development plan, in compliance with the aspirations of all those who expressed themselves. Again note that this is a long-term vision and the realization of potential projects must be supported by financial assistance from government and private partners."
