Hundreds of people came together and participated in activities to help redesign their neighbourhoods.
Give Montréal residents the quality of life that they deserve. This required identifying ways to promote active transportation and calm traffic to create safer, more liveable neighbourhoods, especially for children.
Engage citizens, professionals and elected officials in a neighbourhood redesign process with three phases: understand, explore and build the future together.
A three-phase planning approach
Understandthe neighbourhood and barriers to active transportation
Exploreneighbourhood design solutions
Buildthe neighbourhood’s future together
- Develop a Green, Active and Healthy Neighbourhoods (GHAN) plan for each neighbourhood
- Gather the information required for citizens to understand the urban planning issues in each neighbourhood: plans, diagrams, statistics, transportation surveys, photos, illustrations
- Provide citizens and community organizers with tools inspired by participatory planning best practices to help them become actors of change
- Involvement of four Montréal communities in a participatory planning project
- Active participation of hundreds of citizens in the process
- Submission of four GHAN plans to the boroughs affiliated with the project
- Gradual integration of some of the GHAN plan design solutions into the neighbourhoods
- Implementation of green curb extensions
