A Better Consultation Process for Projet Griffintown sign now

200 years of history and 100 years of the future deserve more than a few nights of consultation!

Petition
to the Administration of the City of Montreal
to pursue the sustainable redevelopment of Griffintown
using a better and more just consultation process.

Considering that the process of public consultation on the Special Planning Program (SPP), which must oversee the proposed redevelopment of Griffintown by Devimco, is clearly insufficient;

Considering that for a project of this magnitude, the PPU provides only a few nights of public consultation in the South West borough, ignoring critical issues of a redevelopment that will affect the whole city of
Montreal;

Considering that the City of Montreal appears to have chosen the PPU as a tool for rezoning not only because it allows the city to expropriate for a private developer, but because it allows the redirection of the consultation process to the level of the Borough, and thus avoids the democratic process of its own Office of Public Consultations;

Considering that the project of developer Devimco, which includes the expansion and the removal of several streets, the creation of a minimum of 5000 underground parking spaces, a dozen 17-storey towers and one million square feet of Commercial space- all put in a regulation adopted in all possible haste by the City of Montreal - would have an unprecedented impact on our city for many years to come;

We, the undersigned, demand that the City of Montreal stop this abbreviated and accelerated process of consultation, and introduce a different consultation process which allows the time necessary for Montrealers to understand the complex challenges of a massive intervention and all the attendant consequences. We demand that these new public consultations be organized by the Office de Consultation Publique de MontrГal (OCPM) at the agglomeration level of the City of Montreal, rather than merely at the South West Borough level.
