When I was first elected to city council almost 18 years ago, I introduced the concept of District meetings. These gatherings represented an opportunity for me to brief constituents on issues specifically pertinent to our immediate neighbourhood. I was pleased to see most of my colleagues on Côte Saint-Luc city council follow the same model.
During the pandemic, these meetings switched to a virtual format. While we now live in times of no COVID restrictions, the feedback I have received overwhelming favors retaining this option. There is a lot going on in District 2 so please join me on Monday, May 29 (7:30 pm). Just go to www.cotesaintluc.org/districtmeeting and click on the Zoom link. The agenda will focus on traffic issues (our Traffic Engineer Spyro Yotis will join us) to answer your questions and concerns; the master plan and the Quartier Cavendish development plan; an update on Hydro-Québec issues and their plans to build a new substation and towers; the new park naming for Sheila Finestone on Marc Chagall Avenue as well as Isabella Pietracupa's update on the snow dump; and Rembrandt Park. Former City Councillor Glenn J. Nashen will also be formally introduced as my senior District 2 advisor,
