Committees

The Municipal Council has several committees to help it implement its decisions. These committees bring together employees of the Ville de Vaudreuil-Dorion, as well as municipal councillors and sometimes even residents.

Comité consultatif d’urbanisme—CCU (urban planning advisory committee)

The Comité consultatif d’urbanisme—CCU (urban planning advisory committee) is a working group made up of two municipal councillors and six members chosen from among residents of the Municipality to guide, advise and implement urban planning activities. The recommendations and opinions of the CCU enable Municipal Council to benefit from the contributions of its elected representatives and residents, who can thereby demonstrate their professional and life expertise and their particular concerns for the development of the territory. In order to exercise its decision-making power, Municipal Council must have obtained a prior opinion from its CCU in cases involving a minor derogation, a change in urban planning regulations, a Plan d’aménagement d’ensemble—PAE (overall development plan) and a Plan d’implantation et d’intégration  architecturale—PIIA (architectural integration plan).

Traffic Committee

The Traffic Committee is composed of municipal councillors, city employees and a police officer from the Sûreté du Québec. It works in close collaboration with the Public Works Department and from time to time uses the services of technical staff.

It meets once a month to discuss applications received and files in progress, and then makes recommendations to Municipal Council. Apart from issues involving speed and signage, the Committee also studies proposals to amend regulations, particularly with regard to parking, but also including nuisances, snow removal, etc. It is also involved in the creation of new streets and bike paths.

In addition, the Committee may be called upon to intervene in various forums, whenever it is necessary to improve traffic flow.

If you feel that traffic calming measures should be taken in your neighbourhood, please make a written request to the Traffic Committee at comitecirculation@ville.vaudreuil-dorion.qc.ca. Where the Committee deems it appropriate, it will conduct a traffic study in the sector in question (speed checker, radar, visual counting, etc.).
