As part of the revision of the 2004 Urban Plan and the 2008 Mobility Plan, the City of Montréal mandated the Office de Consultation Publique de Montréal (OCPM) to hold a consultation on a preparatory document called Projet de Ville : vers un plan d'urbanisme et de mobilité.
This document is the preliminary step in the development of the Urban Plan and Mobility Plan, which will plan the future of the City of Montréal up to 2050.
The public consultation on this document prepared by the Urban Planning and Mobility Department will be the beginning of the conversation with the population necessary to develop the urban plan.
The Office de consultation publique de Montréal (OCPM) announces the start of Réflexion 2050 Montréal, a consultation based on the territorial vision document adopted by Montréal City Council in 2021. This city-wide discussion will be used to develop the 2050 Urban Planning and Mobility Plan (PUM). The consultative process will take place throughout 2022.
An online platform has been created for the occasion: reflexion2050.ca. It will allow for an ongoing discussion on the various planning issues facing Montréal. Webinars organized to launch the consultation in February and March on planning, development, mobility and inclusion can also be viewed. Other means, such as consultation kits and interactive activities, will be offered to encourage broad and inclusive participation.
An information session will be held on April 5 at 7 p.m. The consultation process and the City Plan document will be presented. Two weeks later, on April 21 at 7 p.m., a question and answer session will be held. At this session, citizens will be able to ask questions of City officials in person or by phone.
The information and Q&A sessions will be held in a hybrid mode, i.e. in person and virtually. These sessions will take place at the OCPM office: 1550 Metcalfe Street, 14th floor, Montreal (Peel metro). They will be broadcast live and will remain available for viewing.
Finally, this fall, the population will be invited to participate in citizen meetings and, afterwards, to give their opinions verbally or in writing. All meetings will be held in accordance with the government's guidelines for public gatherings and may be adapted at any time to the health measures in effect.
Dates to consider for this consultation:
- April 5 - information session and launch of the online platform
- April 21 - Question and answer session
