250 properties removed, but 15 still to be withdrawn from the ministerial flood zone order
Although 250 of the 265 properties have been withdrawn, at the City’s request, from the special planning zone to manage the flood zones declared by the government, the Mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, announced that the City is still working in collaboration with the government to have all the remaining Pointe-Claire properties removed.
“We have already had close to 95% of the properties identified excluded from the Ministère’s draft order and we are still working to have the 15 remaining properties removed—they should not be included,” said Mayor John Belvedere.
Based on the information from the Ministère, to be excluded from the special planning zone, properties must be located outside the 0-20-year flood zone map and have not been flooded in 2017 and 2019. This is the case for all property owners on our territory. Therefore, no property should be included in the special planning zone order issued by the government to manage flood zones.
“It is important that we continue to work on behalf of Pointe-Claire citizens with the Ministère, for both current and future generations,” concluded Mayor John Belvedere.
