Consult our Longueuil Citizen 2017-2021 program to discover our vision for Longueuil.
Cities, like their development principles, are in the midst of a revolution. Within active transport distance, citizens want to find everything they need: local shops, daily services, entertainment, green spaces, rest areas, etc. We are moving away from the hyper-densified concept of a distorted American city center. We are focusing more on the decentralized concept of center-districts which are more suited to an active lifestyle and to a citizen who wants to reconnect with nature and its history. This trend will intensify in the coming years.
The concrete proposals that we find in our program come from the dialogue that our candidates had with their citizens during several months preceding the electoral campaign of November 2017. It also follows exchanges with several major important actors, influencers, mayors, and elected officials’ other levels of government.
Finally, the cities around the world that have been most successful in responding to the challenges of urban development were the starting point of our inspiration, especially in terms of urbanization and citizen participation formulas.
