Dorval asks citizens to voice opinion on new flood zone

The City of Dorval invites its citizens to make their voices heard during the public consultation meeting that will take place on July 4, 2019, at 7 p.m. at the Holiday Inn & Suites Pointe-Claire Montreal Airport, room Champagne (6700 Trans-Canada Highway). This public consultation meeting will allow people to express themselves on the decree concerning the special planning zone (SPZ) applicable to our territory, which was put in place by the Quebec government on June 17.

As a municipal organization, the City of Dorval is, of course, concerned by the damaging consequences of flooding on our population, and that is why the municipality strongly agrees with these measures that aim to better protect citizens and their belongings.

However, as part of this decree, boundaries for the special planning zone were established and, unfortunately, it is clear that the created map is completely incorrect in regards to the City of Dorval, notably for the following reasons:

  • The subdivision of flood zones is technically impossible. It shows straight-lined divisions or almost completely straight boundaries, which is totally illogical.
  • This map is supposed to rely on the floods that took place in 2017 and 2019. Yet, the City of Dorval was only slightly affected by flooding in 2017 and not at all in 2019.

The City invites its citizens to consult this map and to make their voice heard in order to protect their assets if they find themselves in the special planning zone. In addition to the public consultation meeting, it is also possible to express your opinion concerning this decree and the SPZ by emailing [email protected], before July 4.

The City of Dorval is requesting that this map be corrected in regards to its territory as fast as possible, since it is now practically impossible to issue construction permits near the shorelines of Lake Saint-Louis because of this inaccuracy. In fact, this decree notably imposes a moratorium on construction and reconstruction of buildings located in the area covered in the SPZ until the elaboration of a new framework by the government.
