Environmental policy

The City of Vaudreuil-Dorion is beginning a process of public consultations to find out more about its population’s priorities in an effort to draw up an environmental policy.  

Survey

In order to establish the number of facilitators and the material required for the meeting, we ask that you register by contacting the Environment Division by phone at 450 455-3371, Option 1 or by email at environnement@ville.vaudreuil-dorion.qc.ca.

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.

French status

Vaudreuil-Dorion is a unilingually French city, a status that was determined by the Government of Québec.

In order for a municipality to offer services in both official languages, half of its population must be residents whose mother tongue is English, which is not currently the case for Vaudreuil-Dorion.

Because of this status, the Charter of the French language requires that only French be used in posting, writing and publishing documents, except where health or public safety also requires the use of another language.
