Stop the development project on the former Marianopolis site

Join Les amis de la montagne in signing a petition to demonstrate to the Minister of Culture and the Mayor of Montreal that we do not consider the residential project proposed for the former Marianopolis site to be acceptable and that we expect them to refuse the project.

The ministry of culture and the city of Montreal appear to be in favour of the development project proposed for the former Marianopolis site (former Sulpicians’ philosophy seminary). Show them that you disagree:

Whereas the former Marianopolis site is the last of the large institutional Sulpicians’ domains on the mountain;

Whereas this site constitutes an exceptional property by virtue of its single building, the former Sulpicians’ philosophy seminary, in the midst of an extraordinary natural environment;

Whereas the residential project proposed for the site goes against the city of Montreal’s urban plan and by-laws of the mountain’s protection, specifically in terms of use, density, height, volume, installation and protection of the vegetation;

Whereas the proposed project does not respect the direction of the city’s transportation plan;

Whereas the site’s landscape is threatened by the construction of 19 new buildings proposed for the open and green areas of the site;

Whereas the Mount Royal Protection and Enhancement Plan is supposed to announce a new day for the mountain and our community, demanding only exemplary projects for Mount Royal;

Whereas the City of Montreal has stated that, « Never in its history, has Mount Royal been so well protected »;

I, the undersigned, request that the development project presented to the Office de consultation publique de Montréal be stopped by the ministry of culture and the city of Montreal, and that action is undertaken to ensure that any future proposal for this site are both exemplary for the mountain and the community.
