Royalmount looks to the general public for project improvements

Montreal, September 23, 2019 — Having held dozens of meetings and roundtables since May with groups and organizations, Carbonleo now invites the general public to join the conversation, whether online or by attending the public events it has organized.

Starting October 2, public events are slated to be held near the Royalmount site, hosted by experts from the co-creation firm Percolab. Attendees will receive details on the project, which is evolving in response to the positive discussions Carbonleo has been conducting with the Town of Mount Royal, the City of Montreal, and the boroughs affected. Dates and locations of the events are available on Royalmount’s website.

Members of the public interested in another way of getting in touch can also go to the Royalmount, Let’s Chat Facebook page or to royalmount.com to share their ideas on topics such as urban mobility, sustainability, or other aspects of the project.

“We’ve collected a flood of innovative ideas and points of view from the groups and organizations we’ve met in these months,” said Carbonleo Executive Vice President and Partner Claude Marcotte. “And we’re confident that the general public has lots to say that will enrich our reflections and contribute to making the project something we can all be proud of. They are after all the real experts on the Montreal experience.”

More than 70 experts and professionals have been consulted since the process began in May. Close to 20 meetings have been held to talk about potential opportunities and what can be improved for the benefit of the local and metropolitan communities. An ideation roundtable and several additional work sessions involving 40 individuals were also put together in collaboration with BRAC (Bureau de recherche, d’animation et de consultation).

Carbonleo is determined to put all the ideas received to work to enhance and improve the project. This version will reflect the contributions of all Montrealers who pitched in. What’s more, it will incorporate the recommendations of the Namur–De la Savane working group established by the City of Montreal and the Quebec government to study ways to improve mobility in the area.
