Grand Seminar: presentation and visit of a site with great potential for the community

INVITATION : Wednesday, December 12th, 5PM-7PM at 2065 Sherbrooke West

The Grand Séminaire has created a plan for the future of their magnificent site, and Mr. Guy Guindon, the site’s rector, has offered to present the plan to the community.  The presentation will be followed by a discussion with snacks and refreshments.

The site, Renamed Campus du Fort de la Montagne, is moving towards developing its educational mission over the next few years. The site already contains several educational institutions, and the new plans will add even more. Negotiations are currently underway with the Commission Scolaire de Montréal regarding the addition of a public primary school (see the blue zone in the photo above).

The site also has an enormous green space (see the green zone in the photo above). While this space is currently private, discussions are in progress with the City of Montreal to open the site to the public under the City’s Accès-Jardin program.

We would like to invite you to be participate in this discussion to help us imagine the future of this enchanting site and to better understand the current actions being taken towards its development. If successful, these plans could greatly benefit the whole community. A tour of the site will take place after the discussion, so make sure to dress warmly!
