Overhaul of Sherbrooke zoning regulations
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 And so the project was withdrawn.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. The SPUDD resource personnel will also be available until September 16th to meet with citizens who make appointments by calling 819 823-8000, ext. 1200.
Sherbrooke residents have until September 16th, 2016, to send their questions, comments or statements on the project to realisonssherbrooke@ ville.sherbrooke.qc.ca.
