Planning

The Planning Program outlines the City's major land use planning and development orientations. It was developed by the Planning Department in accordance with the Act Respecting Land Use Planning and Development. A Special Planning Program (SPP) defines a vision for the revitalization of economic and social activities in a given area. Input from residents, merchants and community organizations is sought to develop a lasting plan.

Planning Program

The Planning Program offers a vision of Pointe-Claire for the next ten years.

It provides a portrait of:

  • the City’s current state of development, and its population
  • major land-use orientations for the territory
  • main issues and goals for the next ten years
  • sectors undergoing more detailed planning
  • the state of the City Centre and the Civic Centre

The Planning Program gives citizens, elected representatives and the administration a precise reference to guide future actions in the territory. Its implementation involves follow-up studies, municipal investment and amendments to existing by-laws.

Village Vision

Village

The first stage, which began in the spring of 2013, involved assessing the Village’s strengths, weaknesses, limits and opportunities, and identifying issues to be considered in terms of urban planning.

The diagnosis provides a qualitative and quantitative picture of Village quality of life through analysis of sociodemographic aspects, life environment and economic activity. It is based on existing data, on-site observation and surveys.

The process also included the participation of citizens, business owners and community organizations and involved both municipal departments and the outside expertise of Convercité, an agency specializing in commercial revitalization and participative management.

A public meeting was held in April 2014 to present the report summarizing the Village Diagnosis. The information in the Diagnosis is the basis for the development of a Special Planning Program (SPP).

A specialized firm, L’Atelier Urbain, is currently working in partnership with the Planning Department to develop specific by-laws for the Village that will be consistent with the Diagnosis.

Pointe-Claire citizens, business people and community organizations participated in a public consultation meeting on February 17, 2016 at 7 p.m. at John-Rennie High School.

Valois Village

The project to enhance the Village began in the spring of 2016 with various community consultations: a telephone survey, meetings, discussion groups and two exchange forums. A territorial analysis was also conducted based on observations, land surveys, and analyses of by-laws and statistics.

The proposed directions will be used as a reference for implementing development objectives. The creation of an increasingly more accessible and safe environment, the development of a visual identity unique to the area, the consolidation of the Village as a local commercial destination and friendly and vibrant living environment are all elements that were discussed with the community during the meetings and that will be presented at the public consultation.

The public consultation session on the Valois Village Special Planning Program will be held on Tuesday, February 28, at 7:30 p.m., in the City Hall Council Chamber at 451 Saint-Jean Boulevard.

You can also submit your comments by email to urbanisme@pointe-claire.ca, before February 24. City Council will review your comments to prepare the final version of the SPP.
