This is the Brompton Street core which is the subject of a PPU.

This is a “territory to transform where revitalization actions are required. This sector currently reveals a portrait unstructured because of its planned changes little in recent years. ”

We have a project manager to Brompton and Lennoxville as well as Saint-Élie. One must always remember that it is a guide. The actions we take in the future need to be consistent. Sometimes it is fragile. It can be a nice document, but it must be backed by concrete action. It’s fragile urban core as Brompton and be careful with contradictory actions. I greatly welcome the PPU. ”
