November zoning changes in Verdun

November 12, 2015

The borough of Verdun has three zoning changes currently underway this month:

  • one for a condos with commercial spaces on the lot at the corner of Godin and Bannantyne,
  • another for the seniors’ hospice next to the Circus School,
  • and a third for the demolition of two boarded-up triplexes on Lesage.

Brown and Bannantyne

A new project requires  zoning changes before an 11-unit three-storey condo project with a grocery store can be built in the lot on the north side of Bannantyne at the corner of Godin, just west of the Cultural Centre.

Citizens nearby have the right to ask for a referendum on the project if they so choose. For that to happen, at least twelve people from one or several of the five surrounding zones have to sign an official request by noon on Friday, November 20.

Everyone living in the duplexes and triplexes next to the lot between Godin and Riverview make up the first zone.

Everyone living or owning a business to the north and east of the lot on Brown, Godin and Beurling make up the second zone.

Everyone living or owning a business between Beurling, Bannantyne, Godin and Brown make up the third zone.

The fourth and fifth zones encompass everyone living and working on and south of Banantyne between Rolland and Moffat.

A public consultation outlining the project already took place on Tuesday, October 27 but anyone who wants to look at the plans can do so at Verdun Borough Hall, 4555 Verdun Street between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. from Monday until Thursday, and until 12:30 on Fridays.

For more information, refer to the official notice.

Manoir Senior’s Hospice, 5550 LaSalle

The borough also needs to consult citizens before revising the zone for the waterfront so that 5550 LaSalle can be officially converted and expanded into a 12-room senior’s hospice.

Citizens nearby have the right to ask for a referendum on the project if they so choose. For that to happen, at least twelve people from one of the two surrounding zones have to sign an official request by noon on Friday, November 20.

The zones cover the entire waterfront on the south side of Lasalle Boulevard from Fayalle to the Highway.

A public consultation outlining the project already took place on Tuesday, October 27 but anyone who wants to look at the plans can do so at Verdun Borough Hall, 4555 Verdun Street between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. from Monday until Thursday, and until 12:30 on Fridays.

3924 to 2938 Lesage

A developer plans to tear down the two boarded-up triplexes  at 3924 to 3948 Lesage and build a three-storey building with 19 condos in their place.

The empty triplex at 3946 was the site of a fire on April 22, earlier this year. Firemen found traces of an accelerant.

The project will be presented at a public consultation to be held at 6 p.m. on November 24.
