Montreal's Bellechasse In Rosemont Is Getting A Facelift That Will Be Chosen By The City's Residents

Secteur Bellechasse, a widely-used public space in the Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie borough, needs a makeover, and you can decide what's going to change. Le Comité logement de la Petite-Patrie, with the help of McGill University, is calling out to the public for insight on how to make Bellechasse better with the Imaginons Bellechasse project.

An open forum for allowing all citizens to participate, Imaginons Bellechasse will let you comment on various urban design proposals and projects for the Bellechasse site. You'll be able to throw your two cents in 'til July 15th, so make sure your voice is heard.

Be sure to check out the potential changes to Secteur Bellechasse, and make it known which ones you like/hate. Read about them all here, but to give you an idea, here are some of the main proposals as part of Imaginons Bellechasse:

  • Safer pedestrian walkways to the Rosemont metro
  • Espace Quatre Saisons: an area for local shops to set up and sell their wares year-round
  • Remaking remnants of the Coca-Cola plant into a celebration of the area's industrial history
  • The Urban Grid: a reworking of the street network to optimize public spaces
  • Direct access from Bellechasse to metro station using the viaduct
  • Creation of an urban market place/community square
  • Erecting a monument/tower of urban agriculture
  • Digging out an underground tunnel allowing access to the bus

Head to Imaginons Bellechase and throw your thoughts into the discussion. The Comité logement de la Petite-Patrie and the McGill Schools of Urban Planning and Architecture and Faculty of Law really do want to hear what the community has to say. Head to the FB page for more info too.
