After many years of ongoing planning in February 2020, the owner of lot 1 977 164 (Boisé Pearson) submitted a request for a cadastral operation permit for: 1) the creation of seven (7) residential use lots for single-family dwellings in compliance with urban planning regulations; and 2) the creation of a new public road connected to Rue Ste-Anne. As a result of the evaluations and recommendations all approved by the municipal Council, the subdivision permit and infrastructure agreement, for which all work will be undertaken and paid for by the developer, has been put in place to advance this project, the details of which are explored in detail in the Appendix. It is important to note that the infrastructure conception and construction plans include great improvements to the security and safety of vehicles passing and entering École secondaire Saint-Georges on Rue Ste-Anne.
In parallel with the development of the infrastructure plans, Senneville received a request from the City of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue to correct a territory irregularity for the respective municipalities’ rights-of-way involving a portion of Boul. des Anciens-Combattants and the portion of Rue Ste-Anne in front of École secondaire St-Georges. (This irregularity was generated when the MTQ constructed a direct link between Highway 20 and Highway 40, abolishing a portion of Chemin Sainte-Marie and creating Boul. des Anciens-Combattants. The final survey of the boulevard slightly modified parcels of lots between Senneville and Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, which were never formally corrected by the Ministry. Discussions with the City of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue regarding the corrections have been ongoing since 2015 and an agreement in principle was reached in November 2020 to rectify this anomaly.) As a result of the corrections and exchanges, the City of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue will be compensated, in full by the developer, with a sum of $112,000 in lieu of reimbursement for asphalt repairs and roadwork expenses for the section of Rue Ste-Anne (fronting École secondaire Saint-Georges and carried out in 2016), Resolution 2020-11-293.
Regarding the new public road, Council adopted resolution 2021-02-344 requesting the Commission de Toponymie du Québec to name the new street of the development project “Pearson Avenue,” which was accepted. Once the formalities of the transfer of municipal rights of way are finalized with the City of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, the sector of Rue Ste-Anne fronting the high school will also be renamed “Pearson Avenue.”
The subdivision permit was issued in February 2022 once terms for the project were concluded, including the municipal infrastructure agreement (road and infrastructure), and other necessary authorizations were received. The construction work timeline has been drafted and various actions have been determined to manage the project in accordance with the infrastructure agreement approved by Council.
The developer has launched a call for tenders for the construction work related to municipal services expected to take place between June and August of this year. Once concluded, further details will be communicated regarding the selected contractor as well the exact timeline of the work.
Meanwhile, the developer has received formal authorization from the municipality to commence site preparation work for construction. The preparation period is planned to take place over the next few weeks and will be completed by April 15, weather permitting. Construction survey pickets identifying the subjected area were installed last summer.
