Land acquisition – New step to enhance the Pointe-Claire Village and preserve its character
The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, and the members of City Council are pleased to announce that a new step has been taken to enhance the entrance to the village and preserve its character thanks to the acquisition of land at the intersection of Du Bord-du-Lac – Lakeshore Road and Avenue Cartier.
“During the 2013 and 2017 election campaigns, I announced my vision for the City to buy these lots so that the entire community can benefit from them. Today, this is becoming a reality thanks to our joint efforts and this major investment in the village,” Mayor John Belvedere said.
This new municipal lot includes the green space at the intersection of Du Bord-du-Lac – Lakeshore Road as well as the vacant commercial and residential mixed-use building at 261–265 Du Bord-du-Lac – Lakeshore Road.
“City Council’s vision is clear: we want this entrance to the village to be an attractive place for public life. We have several ideas about how to develop the site, including a public building with washroom facilities, an outdoor public market, a green space with trees, bike racks and public benches, a moveable stage for concerts and shows, and even an ice rink,” Mayor Belvedere said.
The transaction was confirmed at an extraordinary meeting of City Council on February 18, 2020, at City Hall.
Public consultations will be announced in the coming months regarding the development of this new public space. All ideas from citizens and merchants for this new public space at the entrance to the Pointe-Claire Village will be welcome.
“We are committed to developing the Pointe-Claire Village in a harmonious way, and this new unifying project is in line with the Special Planning Program vision, which aims to make it a prime destination for residents, workers and visitors alike,” Mayor Belvedere concluded.
