LaSalle's Participatory Budget: Report on the 1st Edition (2021)
In 2021, a sum of $150,000 will be devoted to carrying out projects submitted by and for LaSalle residents, who have selected their three favourite projects from among a total of seven.
Following the distribution of the 609 valid votes, three projects will be carried out within the $150,000 budget.
1. Fruits within reach (47.6% support)
Planting fruit bushes to make them accessible to residents and allow them to “adopt” them.
Two locations are being considered: Parc de l’Aqueduc, in the right-of-way of the lines that Hydro-Québec is dismantling, or in the park on the grounds of borough hall (bounded by Airlie/Dupras/LaSalle)
2. Gardening together(39.4% support)
Development of an above-ground community garden
Location considered: Parc des Rapides, near the Knights of Columbus building
3. Outdoor ping-pong (38.8% support)
Installation of 3 ping-pong tables in the parks
Two locations considered: Parc Lefebvre (2 tables) and Parc Hayward (1 table)
These projects total $132,840 out of an overall available budget of $150,000. The remaining amount will be retained to absorb any cost adjustments that may be required while carrying out the three projects. This amount can also be used to enhance the projects.
Implementation of the projects by the borough and follow-up after they are carried out will be spread out over a period of two years.
