The Office de consultation publique de Montréal (OCPM) invites citizens to a public consultation on the development project proposed by the Collège Notre-Dame, located on Queen Mary Road. The Collège is located within the Mount Royal Historic and Natural District, now known as the “site patrimonial du Mont-Royal” since the entry into force of the Loi sur le patrimoine culturel.

The project submitted by Collège Notre-Dame defines its wish to upgrade and expand its playing fields and leisure spaces for students. At the same time, the Collège is seeking to repurpose the outdoor space surrounding the main pavilion with a view to improving the landscape quality of the site.
 
Information session :
The hearing of opinions will be held Tuesday, February 19 at 7 p.m. at the same location. Citizens may express their opinions and make recommendations on this project. Prior registration is required no later than February 14 and may be done by contacting Gilles Vézina at the OCPM at 514 872-8510.
