Rehabilitation of Summit Woods – Westmount City Council adopts master plan recommendations

According to an article published in the Westmount Independent on June 24, 2014, a master plan for the rehabilitation of the urban forest on the Westmount summit of Mount Royal at an estimated cost of $410,000 was adopted by Westmount City Council. Council hopes to have a portion of the costs funded by the Montreal Agglomeration Council.

The plan includes recommendations from a forestry consultant, calling for the improvement of the appearance of the entrance from Côte-des-Neiges and Belvedere Road, the enhancement of the two entrances to the woods off Summit Circle and the rehabilitation of the section of the circle now closed to traffic, as well as the need to address pathway erosion and surface drainage issues, and the restoration of vegetation degraded by erosion. The plan also calls for the creation of a maintenance plan.
