Postponement of legal action regarding noise during events at Parc Jean-Drapeau
Given the positive experiment run during the past two years, the cities of Saint-Lambert and Montreal wish to inform the public of the postponement of the legal action regarding noise generated by events at Parc Jean-Drapeau. The legal proceedings were initially scheduled to take place this fall. The two cities are optimistic about soon finding an acceptable solution to this major problem for the Saint-Lambert community. They therefore wish to give the joint committee more time to continue its work and implement sustainable measures guaranteeing reasonable long-term control over the noise problem.
The representatives of both cities, Jean-François Parenteau, member of Montréal’s executive committee, responsible for government relations, the environment, citizen services, procurement, rolling stock and workshops, as well as mayor of the Verdun borough, and Pierre Brodeur, mayor of Saint-Lambert, expressed their satisfaction with this new stance:
“The decision to postpone the legal action regarding the noise at Parc Jean-Drapeau is a new, concrete move that demonstrates the results obtained and efforts made by the joint committee to improve the well-being of riverside communities. The cities of Montreal and Saint-Lambert and the Société du parc Jean-Drapeau will continue to work together to find long-term solutions that will limit the impact of the noise generated by events at the park and to preserve residents’ quality of life on both sides of the river.”
