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.

Appels automatisés en cas d’urgence

La Ville de Vaudreuil-Dorion utilise un système d’automate d’appels afin de joindre rapidement le plus grand nombre de résidents lorsque survient une situation d’urgence.

Êtes-vous inscrit?

Si vous avez une ligne terrestre à votre domicile, il y a de fortes chances que votre numéro se trouve dans la liste fournie par l’entreprise qui opère le système d’automate d’appels. Cette liste est mise à jour quelques fois par an. Il est toutefois conseillé d’aviser de tout changement d’adresse afin que votre contact soit mis à jour. De même, si vous utilisez uniquement votre téléphone cellulaire, vous devez faire parvenir vos coordonnées complètes (nom, adresse, numéro de téléphone) à somum@ville.vaudreuil-dorion.qc.ca pour être ajouté à la liste.

Inscrivez-vous directement sur le portail du système d’appels automatisés. Vous aurez alors l’option d’être avisés par téléphone ou par message texte.

 

Quelques consignes

L’automate d’appels est un outil informatisé; il n’est pas infaillible. Pour assurer son bon fonctionnement, quelques mesures peuvent être prises :

  • Répondre avec une formule habituelle (oui allo, bonjour, etc.) afin que le système capte la voix.
  • Rester en ligne même s’il y a un court délai avant que le message démarre.
  • Appuyer sur une touche du clavier pour réentendre le message au besoin.

Si vous êtes absent, le message sera enregistré sur votre boîte vocale. Selon la longueur de votre message de salutations, vous pourriez manquer le début de la communication. Enfin, si vous n’avez pas de boîte vocale, le système tentera de vous joindre à trois reprises, durant la campagne d’appels, avant d’abandonner.

Restez informés autrement!

En plus de l’automate d’appels, la Ville utilise d’autres façons d’informer la population lors de situations d’urgence : le site Internet, la page Facebook, le compte Twitter et les médias régionaux.
