Following-through with green initiatives of the Transportation Plan of the City of Montréal, new projects will aim at creating green neighbourhoods.
"This approach, based on the travel map of Paris, will encourage the designation of perimeters within which to apply a set of measures and facilities to ease traffic, improve security and give back to the residents of these districts a tranquility and quality of life that they deserve. "
The Quartier 21 Peter-McGill, leader of the Quartier vert approach in the district, is located at the 4th exit of the busiest subway in Montréal (Guy-Concordia station), near the de Maisonneuve bike path, just 2 blocks from Concordia University, it runs along the street Sainte-Catherine, and is located at exit 720 (Saint-Marc).
The establishment of a school of tourism and hotel business is another reason to promote the safety of the neighbourhood.
Partners and local organizations have joined the project, each with their own priorities according to local realities.
The idea is to define sensitive areas (concerning issues of movement and sense of security), and then determine the perimeter of the green area. The process is ongoing.
