Jane’s Walk neighbourhood walking tour of Côte Saint-Luc on May 6 and 7, 2017

The City of Côte Saint-Luc will host a neighbourhood walking tours on May 6 and 7, 2017, as part of the annual Jane’s Walk event across North America and the world.

Councillor Dida Berku, Janine West, library director and Carol Meindl of the Côte Saint-Luc Historical Society will be leading a tour “CSL: The Birth of a City form Farmland to Suburb” on Saturday, May 6 and Sunday, May 7, 2016 at 11 am starting at Prud’homme Park (behind 8000 Côte Saint-Luc Rd, corner Westminster; Villa Maria metro, bus route 103 or 162). The walk is free of charge, but participants are encouraged to RSVP at jwest@cotesaintluc.org.

The Montreal-area walks are organized by the Montreal Urban Ecology Centre (www.ecologieurbaine.net/activites-et-projets/activites/promenade-de-jane).

Jane’s Walk is a series of free neighbourhood walking tours that helps put people in touch with their environment and with each other, by bridging social and geographic gaps and creating a space for cities to discover themselves. Since its inception in 2007, Jane’s Walk has happened in cities across North America, and is growing internationally.

Jane’s Walk honours the legacy and ideas of urban activist and writer Jane Jacobs who championed the interests of local residents and pedestrians over a car-centered approach to planning. Jane’s Walk helps knit people together into a strong and resourceful community, instilling belonging and encouraging civic leadership.

Swimmers from Côte Saint-Luc Aquatics shine at Quebec AAA Championship

Seventeen swimmers from Côte Saint-Luc Aquatics (CSLA) were among the best 400 swimmers from across Quebec ages 13 to 16 who competed at the provincial AAA Championships/Canada Games trials at the Olympic pool in Montreal on the weekend of March 31, 2017.

Côte Saint-Luc mayor and councillors to take part in 2017 McHappy Day

Mayor Mitchell Brownstein, Councillor Mike Cohen and others members of city council and staff will volunteer at the two McDonald’s franchises in Côte Saint-Luc on Wednesday, May 3, 2017 as part of the cross Canada McHappy Day initiative.

The day will also mark the launch of the Pierre Brunet McDonald’s Parks and Recreation Bursary Fund. Details of the fund, including application forms, will be announced towards the end of the summer.

“We encourage residents to drop by and make a contribution,” Mayor Mitchell Brownstein said. “The donations at the two local McDonald’s will stay in Côte Saint-Luc, thanks to the new fund. It will help families who cannot afford to register their child in a program. It will also take into account requests from children with special needs.”

McHappy Day is a national fundraiser when McDonald's restaurants across Canada and their communities, employees, customers and special guests raise money together to help children in need. At the heart of McDonald’s community commitment is RMHC Canada, which is dedicated to giving sick children the one thing they need most: their families by supporting Ronald McDonald Houses and Ronald McDonald Family Rooms across the country. RMHC provides families of sick children with a home-away-from-home or a place of peace and calm within a hospital. 

“Pierre Brunet has been a supporter of community activities in Côte Saint-Luc for many years,” said Councillor Mike Cohen, who is responsible for the Sponsorship portfolio. “We’re very excited that through his efforts, more kids in our community will have a chance to participate in recreation programs.”

Brunet operates 19 McDonald’s franchise on the Island of Montreal, including the two restaurants in Côte Saint-Luc. He was honoured in 2016 by the City of Côte Saint-Luc at annual Golf Classic for his continued generosity to community events over the past 30 years.

Hydrant flushing in April may cause coloured water

Fire hydrant flushing

We will be flushing the fire hydrants across Côte Saint-Luc from April 3 to April 28, 2017. We do this twice a year to make that sure our fire hydrants work properly and also to help clear sediments from the underground pipes. After we’re done, you may notice that your water is slightly coloured. This is normal. It’s not dangerous. All you have to do is run the water until it’s clear again. 

Nous allons procéder à une inspection des bornes d'incendie à Côte Saint-Luc du 3 avril au 28 avril 2017. Nous faisons ceci deux fois par année afin de nous assurer que les bornes fonctionnent correctement et aussi afin de déloger tout sédiment des conduites souterraines. Lorsque nous aurons terminé, il se peut que votre eau soit légèrement colorée. Ce n’est pas dangereux. Il vous suffit de laisser couler l’eau jusqu'à ce qu'elle soit claire.

Storm update: March 17, 2017

The nearly 40cm of snow that fell over our area this week was a near record. The last time we reached more than 40cm was in 2012, when a storm dropped 43.2cm of snow on us. So, while we need to be ready for heavy snow falls, a 40cm storm is a challenge, even for a city as prepared as Côte Saint-Luc.

Over the next few days, we will be clearing the streets and sidewalks of snow, as fast as we are able to. We know that it may not be as fast as you have grown accustomed to. But please keep in mind that this was an exceptional snowfall.

Sidewalks
We received a number of comments about sidewalks that haven’t been cleared. In some cases one side of the street’s sidewalk was cleared early in the day, but got snowed over again. On other streets we haven’t been able to get to them yet. We apologize for this. We promise our workers and contractors are working as fast possible with 8 teams -- 3 contractor teams and 5 Côte Saint-Luc in-house teams. 

Traffic delays
We also received comments about the amount of time it took to exit Côte Saint-Luc on Thursday morning (March 16). In some cases, this was due to snow in front of people’s homes. In one case, a traffic light at Guelph/Westminster malfunctioned due to severe weather conditions and kept Westminster traffic stuck on red until Public Safety crews arrived to wave traffic through and finally fixed by our electricians .

The major cause of the slowdown across Côte Saint-Luc were the reduced lanes in neighbouring towns and boroughs, which had a cascading effect on motorists here. It’s important to know that a dump of 40cm drastically reduces the lane widths, sometimes as much as half.

For instance, while our three southbound lanes on Cavendish Blvd. were clear, only one southbound lane on Cavendish Blvd. was available in NDG. These major slowdowns caused traffic to back up all the way to Fleet, Cavendish, and even onto Kildare and Mackle.

Lessons
Every storm teaches us ways we can improve. This one will too. We’re grateful for the positive and understanding comments from residents. 

It has been a tough two days. We understand how important snow clearing is and how it affects your commute to work, getting to medical appointments, or dropping the kids off at school. We are working as fast and possible to get things back to normal.

 

Parks and Recreation programming for Wednesday, March 15 : Please call before coming

Due to the heavy snow fall some Parks and Recreation classes may be cancelled today, Wednesday, Mrach 15. Please call 514-485-6806, ext. 2200 to confirm is your class will be taking place. 

The Aquatic and Community Centre indoor pools and fitness room are open today.

How we fix potholes in CSL

Following the fluctuating temperature over the past two weeks, Côte Saint-Luc  crews have filled 50 potholes in 3 days, including  10 on its side of Côte Saint-Luc Rd.

“The milder weather has caused potholes to form and I directed our Public Works Department to prioritize filling them as quickly as possible,” Mayor Mitchell Brownstein said. “In particular, our crews have been very quick to fill potholes on our major streets, including the westbound portion Côte Saint-Luc Rd. I’ve received many complaints about the eastbound side, but unfortunately that’s part of the City of Montreal. We’ve asked Montreal to prioritize their part of Côte Saint-Luc Rd.”

Pothole repairs done in winter are temporary because cities must use cold mix asphalt. In the spring, potholes are filled with hot mix asphalt, which is a more permanent solution.

City employees who are frequently on the road from Public Works, Public Security, and volunteers from vCOP and EMS are on the lookout for potholes in Côte Saint-Luc and report them to the Public Works office. Residents can help by calling the Public Works office at 514-485-6868 or using the SeeClickFix app on a smartphone to notify the city of a pothole.

All about potholes in Côte Saint-Luc

Potholes are back across the island of Montreal. Here’s information on why they are formed, the procedure of the City of Côte Saint-Luc in filling them, and how much it costs.

Territory
Côte Saint-Luc is responsible for all roads on our territory. However, the City of Montreal is responsible for the south side of Côte Saint-Luc Rd. from Décarie Blvd. to a few blocks east of Westminster Rd. Motorists who spot potholes on that side can call 3-1-1 to speak to a Montreal information agent.

CSL Road

How potholes are formed
Potholes are a result of the freeze/thaw cycle, which deteriorate road surfaces. If water seeps into crevices of the road and then freezes, sections of the pavement are forced up. Then the weight of vehicles travelling over the section of road breaks the pavement and the asphalt is forced out. That’s why potholes are more frequent in the spring or even during the winter right after a period with a sudden rise and decrease in temperature.

 

How we identify potholes
City employees who are frequently on the road from Public Works, Public Security, and volunteers from vCOP and EMS are on the lookout for potholes and report them to the Public Works office. Residents can help by calling the Public Works office at 514-485-6868 or using the SeeClickFix app on a smartphone to notify the city of a pothole.

How we fill potholes
There are two types of asphalt used to fill potholes, cold mix and hot mix. They are used at different times of the year. Cold mix asphalt contains an additive that prevents it from hardening and makes it more granular. Hot mix asphalt doesn’t bind to frozen surfaces, which is why it shouldn’t be used in winter.  Cold mix asphalt, however, is a temporary solution.  Once the weather gets warmer,  we have to re-fill the potholes, but this time with hot mix asphalt, which is a more permanent solution.

Our procedure
From May to November, we have a crew that is dedicated to minor asphalt repair and potholes. During the rest of the year, we have crews to fill potholes as needed.

When we receive a call from a resident or employee about a pothole, a crew is sent out to fill it. Most potholes take just a few minutes to fill.

Pothole costs
It costs about $2.60 of hot-mix or cold-mix to fill the average pothole. Of course, this doesn’t include the labour cost or cost to operate and maintain the equipment used. One team of two employees and equipment will cost about $800 each day to fill 15 potholes. Therefore, an average pothole costs Côte Saint-Luc about $50. 

 

Temporary room closures at the Aquatic and Community Centre starting March 6

On Monday, March 6, we will be temporarily closing for renovation the Fitness Room, Teen Lounge and Game Room located on the second floor of the Aquatic and Community Centre. The renovations will allow for a better use of space and a more pleasurable experience for you.

“Following the popular talks last year featuring Kathy Reichs and General Roméo Dallaire, we’re excited to be working again with Paragraphe Bookstore and Anne Lagacé Dowson to bring Emma Richler to Côte Saint-Luc,” said Mayor Mitchell Brownstein. “Events like these highlight the importance we place on culture in our city.”
