Over­haul of Sher­brooke zon­ing reg­u­la­tions

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

Sher­brooke has adopted a project to over­haul its rules in or­der to har­mo­nize its zon­ing and devel­op­ment reg­u­la­tions. The project will take into ac­count the con­cerns ex­pressed by cit­i­zens last year. Nu­mer­ous meth­ods of com­mu­ni­ca­tion will be used dur­ing the con­sul­ta­tion process “Real­isons Sher­brooke”. The pop­u­la­tion will get all the in­for­ma­tion nec­es­sary and can ex­press their opin­ions by dif­fer­ent meth­ods in the com­ing months.

Pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion meet­ings will be held in all six bor­oughs be­tween May 31st and June 16th, 2016.

“Last year, we de­cided to take the time nec­es­sary to study close to four hun­dred re­quests for mod­i­fi­ca­tions or ad­just­ments to the ini­tial project. And so the project was with­drawn. To­day, we present an im­proved project that will bet­ter re­spond to the needs and ex­pec­ta­tions of the Sher­brooke pop­u­la­tion,” com­mented the pres­i­dent of the CCU, Ni­cole Berg­eron.

To bet­ter plan the man­age­ment of its ter­ri­tory and build its fu­ture, the City of Sher­brooke adopted, on Novem­ber 28th, 2014, a re­vised devel­op­ment plan. Now it must take a sec­ond look at the ur­ban­ism reg­u­la­tions in or­der to re­spect the new plan and be­gin the plan­ning of the ter­ri­tory. Since the mu­nic­i­pal merg­ing in 2002, the city ended up with ten dif­fer­ent zon­ing reg­u­la­tions.

Cit­i­zens will have sev­eral dif­fer­ent ways to com­mu­ni­cate with the city on the sub­ject un­til Septem­ber 16th, 2016. The Pro­jet de re­gle­ment no. 1200 can be con­sulted at re­al­ison­ssher­brooke.ca, and pa­per ver­sions are avail­able at the town hall and at the bor­ough of­fices.

Pub­lic con­sul­ta­tions will take place be­tween May 31st and June 16th, in each of the bor­oughs, all be­gin­ning at 7:00 pm., on the fol­low­ing dates: Fleu­ri­mont, May 31st, 987 Con­seil Street; Mont-Belle­vue, June 1st, 191 Palais Street; Rock ForestSaint Elie-Deauville, June 7th, 4201 Ber­trand-Fabi Street; Bromp­ton, June 8th, 133 Laval Street; Jac­ques-Cartier, June 15th, 2050-B Port­land Blvd; Len­noxville, June 16th, 10 Sa­muelGratham Street.

Be­fore each con­sul­ta­tion, be­tween 5:30 and 7:00 pm, re­source per­son­nel from the Ser­vice de la plan­i­fi­ca­tion ur­baine et du de­vel­oppe­ment durable (SPUDD) will be avail­able to an­swer the ques­tions of cit­i­zens in­di­vid­u­ally.
