Montreal Will Give You Up To $10,000 To Create A New Public Park

Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie is launching a new project

Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie is launching a new pilot project: it seeks to encourage citizen participation and ambitious beautification projects. The arrondissement is willing to shell out up to $10,000 to help out with the projects. 

The project sprang out of two very successful neighborhood beautification projects that were put together by Rosemont organisations last year: l'Île des Murmures and l'Oasis Bellechasse. This year, the neighborhood wants to get everyday citizens involved.

TL;DR Rosemont is willing to spend up to $10,000 on neighborhood amelioration projects. Any interested citizen can put in a project proposal for any of the 25 zones identified as locations for potential projects. The arrondissement hopes that this will bring people of all skillsets together. The deadline for the proposals is March 3, 2019.

The program is being put together in order to legitmize these projects. Citizens will be put in touch with local experts as well as neighbours. The aforementioned specialist role will go to the Centre d’écologie urbaine de Montréal (CEUM), who will help citizens with planning and budget management.

This will hopefully bring together city citizens, who often live isolated from one another. The project will require both those who are expert planners and those who have useful manual skills.

A total of 25 zones have been selected as potential locations for these projects.

Interested citizens can learn more at an information session held at the chalet du parc Maisonneuve on February 19 at 7 p.m. Project proposals will be accepted until March 3.
