Pub­lic meet­ings on Sher­brooke zon­ing be­gin

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Victoria Vanier

The City of Sher­brooke has started the pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion process for its new reg­u­la­tion re­vi­sion project, be­gin­ning with its first meet­ing last night in the Salle du Parvis on Con­seil Street. Since the mu­nic­i­pal merg­ers in 2002, the City has worked with ten dif­fer­ent zon­ing reg­u­la­tions. To man­age the ter­ri­tory bet­ter and to build the fu­ture, in 2014 Sher­brooke adopted a re­vised de­vel­op­ment plan. Now it must re­vise its ur­ban­ism reg­u­la­tions in or­der to re­spect this new plan and to put into ac­tion the plan­ning of the ter­ri­tory, lead­ing the mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil to adopt, on May 16th, the reg­u­la­tion re­vi­sion by-law aimed at har­mo­niz­ing the zon­ing and de­vel­op­ment reg­u­la­tions.

The project by-law no. 1200 takes into ac­count the con­cerns ex­pressed by cit­i­zens last year and can be con­sulted at re­al­ison­ssher­brooke.ca. An in­ter­ac­tive map will help cit­i­zens vi­su­al­ize the reper­cus­sions of the new reg­ula-

tions on their prop­erty. A pa­per ver­sion of by-law no. 1200 is also avail­able at the Sher­brooke Town Hall and at the Bor­ough of­fices.

Five more pub­lic con­sul­ta­tions will take place: Mont-Belle­vue Bor­ough, June 1st at 7:00 pm, Ho­tel de Ville on Palais Street; Rock-For­est Bor­ough, June 7th at 7:00 pm, Sa­lon du Bingo on Ber­trandFabi; Bromp­ton Bor­ough, June 8th at 7:00 pm, Bor­ough of­fice on Laval Street; Jacques Cartier Bor­ough, June 15th at 7:00 pm, Bor­ough of­fice on Port­land; and Len­noxville Bor­ough, June 16th at 7:00 pm, Amedee Beau­doin Cen­tre on Sa­muelGratham Street.

Re­source peo­ple from the Ser­vice de la plan­i­fi­ca­tion ur­baine et du devel­oppe­ment durable (SPUDD) will be avail­able un­til Septem­ber 16th, 2016, to meet with con­cerned cit­i­zens. Meet­ings can be ar­ranged by call­ing 819 823-8000, ex­ten­sion 1200. Cit­i­zens can also send their ques­tions and com­ments on the project by email to re­al­ison­ssher­brooke@ville.sher­brooke.qc.ca., be­fore Septem­ber 16th.

Be­cause of the vast con­sul­ta­tion process, there may be mod­i­fi­ca­tions to the project by-law no. 1200. It should them be adopted and put into ef­fect at the be­gin­ning of 2017.
