Project Neighbourhood 21 for integrated urban revitalisation.

The project consist in a commercial revitalisation and greening of Pascal and Del Sol public spaces in order to rejuvenate a neglected neighbourhood into a green and sustainable neighbourhood.

Developed within the Neighbourhood 21 Program established by the City of Montreal, Public Health Council and the Montreal Agency for Health and Social services, this project of greening and redesign of a commercial area helps generate a sense of home for local citizens. The main objectives of the project are to define a welcoming, inviting and safe environment and implant an attractive commercial area.

This initiative create a gathering place for residents and eliminates some conflictual situations between pedestrians, cyclists and cars.
