Update: Cavendish-Kildare intersection getting the right attention; green space on order for corner spot

First and foremost, a Task Group has been established once and for all to deal with the troubling intersection of Cavendish and Kildare. Preliminary discussions have focused on the safety of the intersection and a proposed  action plan. This  group is composed of council members, city administration as well as Montreal Police Department  representatives. Hats off to Councillor Glenn J. Nashen for moving this dossier forward and to staff Jordy Reichson and Charles Senekal for their support. This is something I have been pushing since the day I was first elected. We are presently awaiting data regarding  vehicle and pedestrian counts.  I am pleased to report that city council has allocated at least $500,000 to improve the intersection. This is from funds we received via the  gas tax. We hope to engage the services of a traffic consultant who would produce at least two options for us to consider.

Meanwhile, the  city has  engaged the firm Beaupré Associés for professional services for the construction of a park/public space on the northwest corner of Cavendish and Kildare. Work on the final plans is in progress and the project is scheduled for the summer of 2016. In order to protect the properties adjacent to this space, a temporary fence to serve as a pedestrian passage was installed from Park Place to Kildare.

I received news today that the new Shell gas station/car wash/Bonisoir location at the corner of Cavendish and Mackle, may not open until March 30. I will keep everyone posted.

Jewish People's and Peretz School (JPPS) is set to move into the Bialik High School building on Kildare Road on February 29.

While not in my District, Pierre Elliott Trudeau Park is a facility we all take great pride in. It is about to undergo substantial renovations. The city’s consultant, Stantec Experts‐conseils,  is finalizing the tender plans and specifications. The project includes the reconstruction of the pathways, the replacement of the lighting, new playground equipment, new landscaped areas and furniture, a new water feature and an upgrade to the electrical supply for special events. A call for tenders is planned for this month and the work is scheduled to start in the spring 2016. That means we will need to identify an alternative venue for Canada Day this year.
