City Hall project : municipal administration awaiting government guidelines

Vaudreuil-Dorion, May 31, 2017 – Following the historical floods we experienced this spring, Premier Philippe Couillard expressed that zoning, urban plans and flood zone maps need to be re-evaluated. The Vaudreuil-Dorion Municipal Council will therefore wait for the government to render its decisions in the regard before going forward with the City Hall construction project.

During the meeting of May 15, Mayor Guy Pilon mentioned to the citizens in attendance that the City Hall project has been postponed until new guidelines are provided on flood zones. “The historical floods that shook our region have naturally provoked further reflection and analysis on our part,” stated Mayor Guy Pilon.

The Mayor reiterated that the portion of land intended as the location of the new City Hall building is not located in a flood zone and has never experienced flooding in the past, contrary to what some people claim.

“The acquisition of 405 Saint-Charles Avenue is excellent news for the City. Thanks to our involvement, this space will be accessible to all citizens, whether or not it becomes the location of our new City Hall building,” declared Mayor Guy Pilon.

Parking at Centre Multisports : Long-term zone to be added

The City of Vaudreuil-Dorion has decided to establish a long-term zone in the parking lot of Centre Multisports, close by the Vaudreuil train station. “Since last Monday, we have been studying the volume of traffic at the Centre Multisports parking lot and we see that we can free up space for users of the station. We are aware that the most difficult months are December, January and February when snow obstructs the space and takes up many parking places. Starting today, we will be providing 55 long-term parking spaces. This will not solve everything, but we are fully aware of the problems faced by our residents,” stated Mayor Guy Pilon.

On March 13th, Mayor Guy Pilon held a press conference to announce a new regulation for the Centre Multisports parking lot, namely a maximum stay of four consecutive hours. This decision resulted from numerous complaints filed by Centre Multisports users in recent months.

“While we’re waiting for the station parking lot to be finished, shuttle buses or a valet parking service like Saint-Lambert are a possibility for next winter. The AMT and the MTQ have to solve the problem. The number of people using the commuter train and the A-40 is constantly increasing. The Centre Multisports clientele is also growing and there have been numerous complaints about the lack of parking space since January. We can’t ignore this very legitimate request, as the parking lot belongs to Centre Multisports. Commuter train users also have their own space. The MTQ has the power to arrive at a solution. I will make sure that they don’t forget their commitment,” added Mayor Guy Pilon.

A meeting is scheduled between the AMT and Mayor Guy Pilon at City Hall on April 13th. The Mayor will discuss parking problems and measures to ease the situation.

TOD

Le programme particulier d’urbanisme du quartier de la Gare Vaudreuil-Dorion a été conçu selon les principes du TOD (Transit Oriented Development).

L’humain au cœur du développement

La Ville travaille à la création d’un quartier basé sur le concept d’un TOD (Transit Oriented Development) dans le secteur du boulevard de la Gare. Il s’agit d’un projet qui compte faire de la gare le cœur d’un développement immobilier indépendant de la voiture pour les déplacements vers Montréal. Pratiqué depuis plusieurs années un peu partout en Europe, particulièrement en Scandinavie, et de plus en plus populaire aux États-Unis, le TOD prône un développement intégré de haute densité, mêlant résidences et commerces. Ce concept est articulé autour d'une infrastructure de transport, par exemple le train ou le métro, où le design urbain favorise les déplacements à pied ou à vélo. Tout cela dans le but de favoriser les déplacements avec un mode de transport autre que l’automobile. Le TOD met l’humain au cœur du développement, et non l’automobile. Il en résulte ainsi un quartier moins pollué et moins bruyant, plus sécuritaire et plus convivial.

Le territoire ciblé

Le territoire visé par le présent programme particulier d’urbanisme (PPU) inclut principalement les terrains susceptibles d’être développés à proximité d’un point focal constitué par la gare intermodale Vaudreuil-Dorion. Il est délimité au nord par la voie ferrée et la limite des secteurs construits, à l’est par un quartier résidentiel existant, au sud par le boulevard de la Cité-des-Jeunes et à l’ouest par l’emprise de l’autoroute 30.

Il correspond essentiellement aux espaces à urbaniser situés dans un rayon approximatif de 400 m de la gare intermodale Vaudreuil-Dorion en tenant compte des barrières constituées par le réseau autoroutier et les quartiers existants.
