City extends deadline for memos on new urban plan to June 28

The City of Laval says that the deadline for submitting memorandums during an ongoing public consultation on the city’s master urban plan has been extended by two weeks, until June 28.

More time for memos

In a statement, a spokesperson for the executive-committee says the committee’s members decided, following requests from residents, to offer more time for the submission of memorandums. It is the city’s hope that a greater number of views and opinions can be added to the decision-making process.

In the meantime, residents and stakeholding organizations can, after registering, also make oral submissions of views and comments during virtual public hearings that will be taking place during the week of June 14.

Following the public consultations, the city will proceed with an analysis of the residents’ contributions.

Other steps in process

Following the recommendation of several committees overseeing the urban plan revision project and in conjunction with city council, comments and other information from the consultation will be included in the final version of the revised by-law.

A report on the consultation will also be issued. The coming into force of the new urban planning code will take place over the months following its adoption by city council.
