Verdun Borough Over-Transparent - Resumption of public consultation meetings on Verdun Chapter of Master Plan

VERDUN, QC, Jan. 14 /CNW Telbec/ - The Verdun Borough has decided to resume the public consultation process that led to the adoption, on December 7, 2010, of the Bylaw on the Verdun Chapter of Ville de Montréal's Master Plan (urban planning program).

"We were over-transparent", pointed out Claude Trudel, Verdun Borough Mayor and member of the Executive Committee responsible for public safety and security.

In fact, the Loi sur l'aménagement et l'urbanisme (Land Use Planning and Development Act) stipulates that Council may amend the proposed Bylaw, but only after holding a public consultation meeting.

However, at the public consultation meeting on December 6, 2010, the Borough submitted a draft bylaw that was slightly compared to the text published in the public notice. This amended draft bylaw took into account, in particular, the informal consultation meetings that had been held in the three Borough neighbourhoods as well as the submissions that had been presented or filed within this process. "Through this procedure, we wanted to show our residents that we had taken their comments into account and to submit them the draft bylaw of the Verdun Chapter, which would be tabled to Borough Council, the following day, for its approval", explained Mayor Trudel. 

As soon as the Borough was informed that this way of proceeding could be contested, since the public consultation meeting concerned a modified public notice, and also, as a precaution, Mayor Trudel took the decision to resume the procedure from the time of the adoption of a draft bylaw until its adoption by Council, including the holding of a formal public consultation meeting. The schedule for this procedure will be announced on the Borough's website and may also be consulted at Borough Hall (at the Bureau d'arrondissement, 4555, rue de Verdun).
