The mayor of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, and the members of City Council announced in an special meeting yesterday evening that they would render their decision regarding the appeals concerning the demolition of 286 Du Bord-du-Lac – Lakeshore Road and the project for 4 businesses and 15 condos on Tuesday, October 2, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chamber at City Hall (451 Saint-Jean Boulevard).
“We thank everyone for their interest, comments, and passion for the Pointe-Claire Village, Many of you shared your opinions, and we will take the time to examine the case carefully in light of the elements that were presented,” stated the mayor when announcing the decision during the public meeting late Wednesday night.
Nearly 150 citizens were present last night to appeal the Demolition Committee’s decisions taken on August 9-10 regarding the building at 286 Du Bord-du-Lac – Lakeshore Road, namely the approval of the demolition of the former Resto-Bar Le Pionnier and the refusal of the project for 4 businesses and 15 condos on this site and the adjacent municipal parking lot.
Over 100 people registered to speak at the meeting, once again showing the interest citizens have for this project from a private developer.
“We all share the same vision: to ensure the integrity of the Village, the quality of life of its residents, harmonious developments, and the prosperity of business owners in a spirit of sustainable development,” the mayor of Pointe-Claire reminded.
The decision will also be broadcast live.
