An unconventional experiment in citizen management of a former industrial site
In collaboration with Friends of the Champ des Possibles
In May 2013, the Plateau-Mont-Royal borough delegated management of a former industrial site to a citizens’ group, Friends of the Champ des Possibles. Thus was protected a green space in the heart of the city, an ecosystem with remarkable biodiversity, located in an area that had been neglected for decades. After two years, we can see the extent of the work accomplished, but many challenges still remain.
The Friends of the Champ des Possibles are currently holding a public consultation on the development plan for the area. Caroline Magar, Marke Ambard and Roger Latour will present their projects and will be happy to have your feedback.
