A street and municipal buildings recognized
The Mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, is pleased to announce that Cartier Avenue and City Hall have received recognition. Cartier Avenue has been named a complete street by the Centre d’écologie urbaine de Montréal, and Pointe-Claire City Hall and the surrounding municipal buildings have been certified Silver following an assessment of environmental performance and management by the BOMA BEST program.
“We are always striving for excellence and are proud of the ongoing improvements everywhere in the City,” Mayor Belvedere said.
Cartier Avenue was developed based on the “complete street” concept in 2017 and 2018. Complete streets promote accessible and safe travel for all types of users: pedestrians, cyclists, motorists, and so on. Here are a few of the improvements that have been made to the avenue as part of this project:
- Development of a two-way bike path protected by a green strip
- Speed limit reduced to 40 km/h
- Sidewalks widened and protrusions created in front of CLSC Lac-Saint-Louis
- Trees and perennials planted on the green strip
These improvements have been made as part of the Special Planning Program (SPP).
City Hall and surrounding municipal buildings (municipal court, police department, fire department and Inspection – Public Security) have obtained BOMA BEST Silver certification, which recognizes sustainable buildings. Ten criteria are used to assess environmental performance and management, including energy, air quality and waste.
