Dear residents:​

At a special session on March 29, we announced some wonderful news. The Commission de protection du territoire agricole du Québec (CPTAQ) has finally given us permission to build the fire station on the property at the intersection of Boulevards Don-Quichotte and Saint-Joseph, across from Carrefour Notre-Dame. The CPTAQ had previously authorized the use of this land for residential or commercial purposes under an earlier decision, but without mentioning any institutional use, such as a fire station. The City argued that no change of use is actually at issue since the property has not been used for agriculture for years. Happily, the CPTAQ accepted our position. We can now move forward with the next steps in the project. We are eager to let you in on the details of this amazing project. Look for updates on our social media. A date will soon be set for the public information session and we hope (fingers crossed) to be able to present the project to you in person. Otherwise, we will turn to our electronic tools once again to contact you virtually.

To cap off the good news, the City plans to offer its day camp service again this summer. Day care will also be available again this year to serve the needs of families. Registration begins on April 14 at 10:00 a.m. Visit the City’s website for more information about the schedule, cost and services offered.

In closing, we would like to share two reminders: the Pincourt Fire Department will test its lockdown siren on March 31 between 1:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. I am told that the siren will be loud but signals no danger; it is only a test. On a brighter note, don’t miss the Easter Market on Saturday, April 3 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Carrefour Notre-Dame parking lot. After the success of the Christmas market, we are delighted to welcome the merchants back to celebrate Easter and the arrival of spring.

Your mayor,
