Peo­ple needed for Stanstead re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion pro­ject

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

At the end of Au­gust, a group of McGill stu­dents will be­gin a study to un­der­take a re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion plan for the down­town sec­tor of Stanstead. The study will look at de­vel­op­ing the Tomi­fo­bia River, walk­ing and bi­cy­cling ac­cess, and de­vel­op­ing strate­gies to im­prove the ap­pear­ance and use of build­ings for com­mer­cial pur­poses and the ser­vice in­dus­try. Con­sul­ta­tions made with the pop­u­la­tion in 2012 and 2013 will serve as the base for the de­vel­op­ment re­port. A re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion com­mit­tee will be formed to re­ceive, ex­change and guide the McGill stu­dents. This com­mit­tee will be made up of the mayor, the Gen­eral Di­rec­tor, a mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil­lor, a cit­i­zen’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive from the Rock Is­land sec­tor and a rep­re­sen­ta­tive for the lo­cal busi­nesses. The busi­ness de­vel­op­ment coun­cil­lor will also sit on the com­mit­tee.

Cit­i­zens from the Rock Is­land sec­tor in­ter­ested to be part of the com­mit­tee must at­tend a meet­ing on Tues­day, Au­gust 13th, 6:30 pm, at the Com­mu­nity Hall at 10 Phelps. There they will learn about the pro­ject, ask ques­tions and elect their rep­re­sen­ta­tive.

Busi­ness peo­ple in­ter­ested will have a sim­i­lar meet­ing on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 14th, 6:30 pm, in the same lo­ca­tion.
