Project: Rousseau Woodland

In an effort to allow citizens to keep a green space, the Town Council has taken the necessary steps to acquire the Boisé Woodland.

In an effort to preserve the woodland, the Town Council has taken the necessary steps to present a draft borrowing by-law to thus acquire the woodland from its many landowners and ensure its protection in the years to come.

However, the Town of Pincourt wishes to know your position regarding this project and its financing, which will be spread out over a period of 30 years.
 

Do you agree or desagree?

If you agree, no action will be necessary on your part.

  • Case History

    The woodland is made up of 46 lots, 31 of which belong to the company 9358-1973 Québec inc., 9 of which belong to the company Développement Banlieue-Ouest inc. and 6 others that belong to individual landowners.

    Since 1954, Pincourt’s zoning by-laws have allowed for real estate development in this area.

    Between 2018 and 2019, the Town mandated the firm WSP in order to carry out fauna and flora inventories of the woodland. The studies showed that the woodland possesses a high ecological value.

    In the wake of these studies, company 9358-1973 Québec inc. initiated legal proceedings to force the Town to authorize the development of the woodland.

  • Taxation Method

    After adopting By-law number 906 decreeing a maximum loan of $ 4,300,000 at the Council meeting on October 19, 2020 the Town of Pincourt wishes to know your position regarding this project and its financing, which will be spread out over a period of 30 years.

    As such, the following taxation method has been established for the annual reimbursement of the expenses incurred.

    Annual reimbursement

    Compensation by percentage (%)

    Sector 1* Secteur 2* Overall sectors
    4 % 5 % 91 %

    *The sectors 1 and 2 are near the Boisé Woodland.

    Tax per year

    For a period of 30 years

    Sector 1 Sector 2 Overall sectors
    $283,10 $215,10 $36,61
    + $36,61 + $36,61

    These amounts are subject to change according to, among other things, market and interest fluctuations as well as in the event of a lower loan than was initially planned.

    These taxation sectors were established according but not limited to the benefits received by citizens residing nearby the Rousseau woodland and the general interest to preserve a woodland with such a high ecological value.

    To find out which sector you belong to and its associated taxation, please refer to the Annex section.
