It is the project involving the landscaping and greening of the area around the CRLO pool on rue Victoria that came out on top in the residents’ vote for the 2021 Programme de soutien aux initiatives citoyennes (program to support residents’ initiatives in the borough of Lachine).
Proposed by the Centre récréatif Lachine Ouest, a non-profit organization, this project aims to create areas of shade, rest and privacy near the pool as well as along the bike path. The $23,825 proposal, which will be carried out in conjunction with the borough’s Direction des travaux publics, also includes:
- tree planting
- the installation of semi-transparent banners on the fence
- the addition of street furniture
A unifying program
This is the third year of this program, which invites organizations to propose ideas that bring people together and promote innovation, social inclusion and healthy living habits. This year, eight projects qualified for the public vote and close to 1500 residents voted for their favourite project!
We wish to thank the finalist organizations for their very interesting projects: Association Centre-Ville Lachine, Aviron Lachine, Ensemble folklorique les Éclusiers de Lachine, GRAME, Harmonie de Lachine, La P’tite Maison de Saint-Pierre and Page par Page.
