Given the great interest generated by the information meeting on trees scheduled for September 8, it will be webcast on the Borough’s YouTube channel and will also be presented at the Centre communautaire Elgar to a small group of individuals (due to the health measures related to COVID-19).
A limited number of people will be able to attend the information meeting in person after pre-registering on the Borough’s website, no later than noon on September 4, 2020. Please note that only one registration per address will be allowed. Residents who have not been able to register before the deadline will have the opportunity to follow the session online by clicking on the link provided on the home page of the Verdun website, starting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, September 8.
Registration Form (in French)
On the evening of the information meeting, registered residents will have to confirm their presence at the entrance to the meeting room at the Centre communautaire Elgar. Ten minutes after the start of the meeting, if some of them have still not arrived, their seats will be offered to other residents.
Questions from the public
At the end of the presentations, there will be a question period for those in attendance in the room. In addition, residents who wish to do so may submit their questions about trees in advance by filling out an online form (in French) on the Borough’s website. These questions will be answered at the end of the meeting by the specialists and officials present, unless they have already been addressed during the presentations.
Topics on the agenda
We wish to mention, as a reminder, that this information session will cover the following topics:
- the Borough’s master planting plan
- the report on trees planted and cut down during the past year
- the tree planting planned over the next few years
- trees planted and cut down in connection with construction sites: Signature sur le Saint-Laurent (SSL), Ville de Montréal, etc.
- emerald ash borer control on private and public properties: treatments, trees cut down and those planted to replace them
- operations in the Domaine Saint-Paul woodland
The Borough adopted an arboricultural plan in 2014 and presented a report on its progress in May 2017. The purpose of this session is to provide an update on the initiatives carried out since then.
Please note that all documents presented at the information meeting as well as the video recording of the session will be posted on the Borough’s website in the days following the meeting.
