Montreal, August 27, 2013 – Les amis de la montagne are pleased that the Office de consultation publique de Montréal (OCPM) has received a mandate from the Executive Committee of the Ville de Montréal to hold public consultations on the recommendations of a governmental committee that is currently studying the reuse of the soon-to-become surplus buildings of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) and the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) on Mount Royal.
During the Mount Royal Summit held on June 7th, organized jointly by Les amis de la montagne and the Ville de Montréal, panelists agreed that the solution to finding a new vocation for the surplus buildings lies in the development of a master plan created with the participation of all stakeholders.
The creation of the inter-ministerial committee announced by Ministers Hébert, Lisée and Kotto on June 19th was well received by Les amis de la montagne. The work of this committee was to be assisted by a group of experts from a variety of fields. The composition of this group of experts, its mandate and the details of its process however, remain to be known.
The public consultation to be led by the OCPM in the spring of 2014 is an indispensable occasion for citizens to express themselves on the future of these institutional properties that have been a part of the history of Montreal, the mountain and the residential neighbourhoods where they are located for more than 150 years.
