Group seeks residents’ input on the future of Pinardville
The committee has been meeting since January in public work sessions, and held a weeklong series of workshops and brainstorming events in May called Planapalooza for Pinardville.
At the July 2 meeting, residents commented that the committee should listen to the community, such as designing street connections.
“We decided not to make connections to Joffre, Haig and Petain streets,” Rose said. “From the beginning, it really wasn’t street connections, per se.”
Some residents said the planning process is happening too fast, while others are afraid decisions are being made for the residents of Pinardville.
“Rezoning will open the door to more huge apartment complexes similar to the 48 apartments being built on Moose Club,” said Benner.
The committee, however, is taking public comments seriously, and some ideas will be incorporated into the proposed plan and others are not feasible, either for economic or demographic reasons.
“This is a tremendous improvement over our master plan because we’re looking at a very specific section of town with very specific recommendations and guidelines,” said committee member Tony Marts.
A new proposed area is Cote’s Corner, now a three-way intersection of Mast Road, Pinard Street and Laurier Street which causes traffic confusion, and is the gateway to Pinardville. The idea is to create more open space with pedestrian-friendly areas, outdoor dining and mixed-use buildings.
