Say goodbye to power line towers! Châteauguay launches a major public consultation on the future of the Hydro-Québec right of way

Published on 09 August 2021

Starting Tuesday, August 10, the entire Châteauguay population is invited to imagine the future of the Hydro-Québec right of way, formerly used by the government corporation for the passage of high-voltage lines on big electrical towers.

The dismantling of the 120 kV line that passes through the heart of Châteauguay is a privileged opportunity for all citizens to think about the development of more than 7 km of natural and riparian environments. Protection of biodiversity, recreational and sports activities, arts and culture, ambiance… Each part of the corridor can offer a place for ideas submitted by the participants in the consultation.

Ideas will be gathered up to October 1 online or through idea boxes available at the following locations:

City hall   5 Bouleverd D’Youville

Centre culturel G.-P.-Vanier   15 Boulevard Maple

Municipal library   25 Boulevard Maple

Pavillon de l’île    480 Boulevard D’Youville

The results of this consultation will be accounted for and analyzed later in the fall so that the teams responsible for the project can then begin the development of visual concepts based on the ideas collected, and so that a complete report can be deposited in February 2022.
