  • Ville-Marie Borough presents new plan for Downtown West End development - Spacing Montreal
    the borough has many attractive qualities Investments in public spaces are long overdue as is a coherent strategy on how to manage the impending change of usage of many local landmarks such as the Grey Nuns Complex The desire to preserve the integrity of institutional buildings is to be applauded and if made good will ensure that no more of the architectural gems of the neighbourhood fall to developers wrecking balls Moreover the plans to reduce traffic are particularly necessary in this neighbourhood that still bears the scars of the construction of the Ville Marie Expressway The biggest problem with the document is not what is in it but rather what is lacking Improving public space and quality of life are positive goals but it s important to ask quality of life for whom Despite all the lip service the Tremblay administration has given to mixité sociale there is no concrete plan to ensure that affordable and social housing is built in the neighbourhood despite the fact that over half of the area s residents are low income On the contrary the only aspect of residential development for which there is a concrete plan is the acceleration of the construction of luxury condo towers around Cabot Square Some luxury development in not inappropriate given already high property values in the area but balance and inclusiveness are needed The city s commitment to afforable housing becomes even more dubious when one remembers that in 2008 the SHDM sold off two of its holdings in the neighbourhood 1225 Sussex and 1850 Lincoln which totaled 177 units of housing Such a decision flies in the face of the Tremblay administration s pro inclusion rhetoric Improved quality of life means little if it is simply code for incentives to attract more luxury residential development to the detriment of lower income residents Moreover building a dynamic vibrant neighbourhood requires low income and middle class residents not just expensive condos that serve as pieds à terre for the wealthy Also of concern is the fact that few concrete measures are proposed to increase the level of services offered to the local population This is a neighbourhood with no primary school the closest being in Westmount no community centre and no local public library It s no wonder that the city has trouble retaining families when such services aren t present And while the need for a more diversified offer of services is brought up in principle in the Special Planning Initiative these issues aren t addresses head on The Ville Marie Borough has given a mandate to the Office de Consultation Publique de Montréal to conduct public consultations on the project Initial information sessions occurred this week and in late April audiences will be held to receive comments and written submissions after which modifications will be proposed Hopefully in the final version of the plan more social vision will be added to complete the laudable urban space vision already present Subscribe to Mag Share Post Tweet

  • Passage à niveau sur la voie ferrée : les négociations sont entamées entre les arrondissements et le CP - Spacing Montreal
    avenue Henri Julien qui est dans l air depuis quelques mois semble toujours privilégié L emplacement semble justifié En date d aujourd hui on y remarque une brèche réparée et deux passages illégaux ce qui confirme qu un certain nombre de cyclistes et de piétons y passent régulièrement En tant que citoyen du quartier je me demande si un seul passage très près de la rue Saint Denis sera suffisant pour ceux qui ont pris l habitude de traverser la voie ferrée à la hauteur des rues Casgrain ou Saint Urbain Sans parler de ceux qui traverse le voie ferrée plus à l est puisqu elle se rend jusqu à la rue Iberville avant de bifurquer vers le sud jusqu au port de Montréal Espérons qu il ne s agisse que d un début Une prochaine réunion entre toutes les parties est prévue au mois de mai Ce billet est une contribution de Julien Cayer un journaliste indépendent intéressé par la vie en ville la consommation la politique l économie les médias et les arts Subscribe to Mag Share Post Tweet Post Buy Merch andise Tweet More posts by Spacing 7 comments Neither the author nor Spacing necessarily agrees with posted comments Spacing reserves the right to edit or delete comments entirely See our Comment Policy Julien Cayer 5 years ago Un petit ajout Ruemasson com a quelques détails supplémentaires sur l absence d un passage à niveau dans l est entre le Vieux Rosemont et le Plateau Mont Royal http ruemasson com p 7986 stf 5 years ago i think several passages will be needed cyclists and especially pedestrians do not take to large detours if they can be avoided due to the fact that it needs physical energy e g 4 other candidates around parc around st urbain between papineau and lorimier between masson and st joseph karl 5 years ago Un passage ne suffira pas Pave the cowpath It is easy to identify where people are going through these should just be recognized And sincerely it is not that difficult sometimes it is just a question of a signal and a barrier It s everywhere in Japan How many accidents with people walking across the tracks every year every 10 years never Roxane 5 years ago Bon vidéo du télématon qui porte sur le secteur Bellechasse dont les problèmes causés par la voie ferrée http ville montreal qc ca portal page pageid 5457 33057623 dad portal schema PORTAL George Town 5 years ago It would be ridiculous for the municipal government let alone the private corporation CP to pay for a crossing at the specific location mentioned above when there is the St Denis underpass not 200m east A nice sign with a map should be posted at the fence above pointing cyclists and walkers to the nearest safe crossing I m sure there are some other locations at which a crossing is required but 200m I find it completely selfish for someone to complain and essentially

  • SPACING vs. MULCAIR: What the NDP would do for Toronto and Canadian cities - Spacing National
    slogan as it often has been in the past in the mouths of politicians this bill which is overarching is the exact type of thing that we would love to bring in federally In other words have overarching sustainable development legislation that enumerates a series of principals like polluter pays and actually giving life to them and enforcing them and making communities have that sort of handle that they can bring action publicly before the courts Spacing Now the Liberals have brought in sort of a pinch hitter for urban affairs in the person of Toronto MP Adam Vaughan Do you have plans to go toe to toe He s a smart guy and he knows the file Mulcair Yeah but he s not their critic in urban affairs We actually have a critic in urban affairs he s Matt Kellway Adam Vaughan is a smart guy but frankly it s nice to be smart but it s even more important to be credible And when you say that you re opposed to proposed anti terror legislation Bill C 51 but you re going to stand up and vote for it because you re afraid of Stephen Harper you re showing that Stephen Harper s defeated you I stand up to Stephen Harper everyday I take him on every day Spacing Your opponents I imagine will say that in order to fund some of these promises you will either have to increase the national debt or raise taxes Mulcair Let s take a very specific example which is our clear undertaking to bring in quality affordable childcare across Canada that s 15 a day maximum is how we re defining affordable Pierre Fortin one of Canada s most highly respected economists was able to show in his studies that the Quebec childcare system allowed 70 000 women to go back to work many of them were receiving different forms of support so for every dollar that the program cost a buck twenty five went back into government coffers But it was not only good for those women it s also was good for the economy because the GDP in Quebec went up by the order of 2 5 thanks to that program So it s not only something we could afford to do it s something we can t afford not to do Beyond that governing is about setting priorities I have sat around a cabinet table I ve been in that position before what you sometimes hear when people say that is they re basically taking us the premise that when we come to power we re going to keep everything the way it was with Stephen Harper and then anything that we would want to add would require fresh money This just in I don t share Stephen Harper s priorities and a lot of what he was doing I won t do or I ll do differently I ll give you a specific example he has a
