MONTREAL, June 7 /CNW Telbec/ - The Office de consultation publique de Montréal will launch the second volume of its "Cahiers de l'Office," tomorrow, June 8, at its seminar on major projects and public consultation.
The document includes two separate texts. The first involves the 2006-2009 report on OCPM activities, viewed from the perspective of values shaping the city for Montrealers. More specifically, the Office wanted to know if the public debates it held were helping to build a more solid, coherent and welcoming city. Over the years and throughout the various projects, one can see how these values have embodied themselves during the public consultations, and how they have influenced projects through the reports of the OCPM.
The second text has to do with the examination of a number of experiences from public consultations held on major projects in a few large cities other than Montréal. We have focused our examination on five urban revitalization projects. The consultation processes surrounding their planning were marked by the continuous involvement of various publics, from the early stages of the development vision and translation of that vision into a design concept, right through to the development plan and, in some cases, to the implementation and construction phases. The Lyon Confluence project was examined in greater detail, while the others are presented in summary form.
The launch will take place during the closing of the seminar, on Tuesday, June 8, at 5:00 p.m., at the Centre Saint-Pierre, 1212 Panet Street.
