  • Hippodrome Site Could Become 5-Year, 43-Hectare Urban Farm - Spacing Montreal
    to take root in the interim Yesterday I was invited to talk part in a first reflection group for community organizations organized by Urban Agriculture Laboratory AULab at the CDN Borough Office about how agriculture could be integrated into the neighbourhood plan but also done in the interim Given the size of the site it was generally discussed that number of different organizations may be able to access the land for various purposes from a tree nursery to beekeeping composting to pisciculture producing food for the surrounding neighbourhood and providing job training school programs and university research sites AULab will do additional reflection sessions with businesses and with urban agriculture experts in the coming weeks with the ambitious objective of sowing seeds in spring 2013 Blue Bonnets racetrack occupied the site from 1907 until it was abandoned in 2009 While the rich farmland that covered most of the island of Montreal was slowly paved over and parcelled out for residential commercial and industrial use the hippodrome remained the domain of horses Consequently the soil does not have high levels of contamination typical of urban brownfields although I learned that it tends to be a bit gravelly If the land is returned to cultivation the development of the hippodrome site will become a sort of microcosm or laboratory for North American urban development where the urban neighbourhoods eventually overtake the agricultural vocation You could think of it as a kind of second chance to rethink the relationship between food production and the urban landscape Hopefully putting land into production even for the brief time it take to hash out a plan for the site will remind all those who participate in the design process about the opportunity to incorporate agriculture into the urban landscape from the ground up It will also

  • Le hockey à Montréal: transporter des passions et des gens - Spacing Montreal
    un peu l économie aussi Avant la neige le hockey À Montréal l isolation du hockey face aux autres sports en tant qu objet de galvanisation sociale n a que renforcé notre nordicité Notre sport national allège les rigueurs de l hiver et la fièvre des séries annonce celle du printemps L hiver la ville est différemment rythmée car les comportements sont étroitement liés à la température Si la tempête du 27 décembre dernier a figé la ville pour quelques jours le lock out qui s est confirmé en septembre a aussi modifié la dynamique de la mobilité montréalaise Des quartiers dynamisés En allant voir un match dans un restaurant sportif le mardi après le travail avec des collègues ou en commandant bière et pizza chez des amis un samedi soir les partisans génèrent des milliers de déplacements dans un laps de temps défini soit avant et après le match Ces déplacements sont souvent récurrents pouvant aller de une à quatre fois par semaine en saison régulière Les bars de quartiers jouent un rôle essentiel dans le dynamisme des artères commerciales locales notamment en prenant le relais des plages horaires des commerces et services ouverts de jour Le hockey surtout lorsque l équipe joue en ville diversifie les déplacements et l activité urbaine en plus de générer un sentiment d appartenance de certains citoyens envers leur ville Lorsqu il n y a pas de hockey les gens effectuent d autres activités vont au cinéma ou regardent des séries télévisées à la maison Ces autres activités modifient les flux de mobilité notamment en limitant l importance des générateurs de déplacements thématiques que sont les bars les restaurants et le centre ville Le Centre ville C est tout de même un minimum de 21 273 personnes qui affluent vers le centre Bell les soirs de match Annuellement cela génère des millions de déplacement vers le Centre Ville et hors de celui ci après les matchs Contactée à cet effet la Société de transport de Montréal STM mentionne que l achalandage aux stations Bonaventure et Lucien L Allier est jusqu à six fois plus important lors des matchs du samedi Sans compter les navettes de bus déployées pour limiter la congestion routière dans ce secteur Situé au cœur d un nœud intermodal majeur Gare ferroviaire Lucien L Allier Autoroute 720 2 stations de métro et plusieurs lignes de bus la position stratégique du Centre Bell permet d optimiser les infrastructures de transport D ailleurs toujours selon la STM les fans du Canadiens sont désormais 40 à voyager en transport collectif contrairement à 17 il y a 5 ans période d inauguration du métro de Laval Le pouvoir d attraction du centre Bell pour ce qu il héberge et probablement pas pour son enveloppe consolide le positionnement du centre ville comme élément clé d une métropole comme Montréal L explosion de développement immobilier autour de l aréna des Canadiens qui fera émerger 4 tours d habitation majeures pour Montréal en témoigne Qui sait peut

  • Des aménagements qui tuent - Spacing Montreal
    le viaduc Saint Denis faire de ce trottoir une piste partagée est improductif Il est irréaliste qu un cycliste qui utilise le vélo comme mode de transport utilitaire doive marcher à côté de son vélo avec les piétons poussettes et joggeurs D ailleurs Radio Canada a co nstaté sans surprise qu à l approche du viaduc Saint Denis les cyclistes préfèrent encore continuer leur chemin sur la chaussée Les recommandations Parmi les recommandations du coroner se trouve la pose systématique de jupettes sous les camions afin de limiter les chances de chute sous les roues L idée est bonne comme le port du casque ça limite la gravité des blessures mais pas les accidents Dans le registre de la prévention le coroner met l accent sur la distance minimale à respecter entre les voitures et les cyclistes alors que certains appellent à plus de vigilance des usagers de la route à davantage de courtoisie et de présence policière etc Ces recommandations sont intéressantes mais ne changent que fort peu de choses à la situation ce viaduc est dangereux La recommandation la plus pertinente du coroner est celle qui demande que soit favorisée encore un terme mou la création de corridors de circulation sécuritaires pour les cyclistes dans l aménagement urbain À cela s ajoute la traditionnelle question est ce qu il faut atteindre 250 accidents avant de modifier une structure dangereuse Au delà des recommandations La suprématie de la fluidité des transports motorisés le manque d ouverture du CN sur sa communauté la molesse politique de la Ville de Montréal la difficulté de trouver des entrepreneurs et tant d autres bonnes et surtout moins bonnes raisons sont le résultat de la situation actuelle Une situation qui malheureusement rappelle qu aménager des villes viables ce n est pas seulement planter des
