answered the survey posted on the Town’s website from May 7 to 27,
This on-line survey is no more than a tool designed to help us find out

for the implementation of the TD Green Streets
programme. Residents living in Le Boisé de SainteAngélique will have the opportunity to adopt a tree

that are durable and have a great ornemental value.
The tree they have chosen will be planted on their property in
a location chosen in colloboration with the owner. Tree planting

Plantons ensemble
Community Planting
Sunday, September 15 at 10 a.m

annual event celebrates volunteers with the planting of small
and tall trees on public land. This year, Plantons ensemble will
take place on September 15 and the location will be confirmed
through the town's newsletter. Residents of all ages are invited
to participate.
Trees play a powerful role in our lives
In summer, they cool the air and protect us from the sun. In
winter, they protect us from the cold northern winds. They purify
the air we breathe, they trap and hold dust, they absorb and
filter rainwater, they prevent soil erosion, they provide habitat
for wildlife, etc. Saint-Lazare recognizes that the quality and
value of our environment depends, in large part, on the care and
attention we give to our region’s forest cover.

Roundabout project!
On Monday, May 27, 2013, Saint-Lazare mayor Robert Grimaudo and
members of his council proudly announced their intention to proceed
with the construction of a roundabout in 2014, an investment of
nearly $1.5 million dollars.
“I’m sure many of you will be delighted at the news”, said the mayor
as he made the announcement. “We have chosen to announce the
roundabout project right here, at the intersection of Avenue Bédard
and Chemin Saint-Louis, in the middle of rush hour, so that the good
news spreads as quickly as possible! We want to give hope to all those
drivers who must negotiate this intersection every day, morning and
night. In the past few years, it has been the scene of serious traffic
jams during rush hour. This situation is also an inconvenience for those
living near Domaine Saint-Louis because of impatient drivers using
surrounding streets as a bypass. We are victims of our own success”,
added the mayor, “our town has substantially increased its population
but the road infrastructure has remained unchanged.”
“Ramp no. 26 off highway 40 ranks in the top exits to enter and exit
the town”, explained the mayor, “and, although it was redesigned
in 2010, the large number of cars converging at Bédard/Saint-Louis
intersection during rush hour turns this area into a traffic funnel. We
have explored several options including installing a traffic light and
widening the lanes to allow right turns, but a roundabout remains the
safest, most efficient and most economical solution and it will keep
traffic moving. ”
“I want to assure our residents that this problem should be solved by
the end of 2014, maybe even earlier. I also want to thank them for
their patience.”
When designing the roundabout, Genivar will take into account
the maximum vehicle dimensions it will need to accommodate, for
example vehicles going to the Chevrier sand quarries and heavier
vehicles going to the agricultural areas along Chemin Saint-Louis.
The construction of the roundabout, which will include bike path
segments, will involve the expropriation of part of some lots. A
borrowing by-law is expected to be adopted at the beginning of 2014.
The Town will publish a flyer explaining the rules of the road applying
to roundabouts such as the importance of yielding to traffic already
in the circle, of entering to your right and of not stopping once inside
the roundabout.

justification matrix
he Town of Saint-Lazare is carrying out a study for the implementation
of a stop sign justification matrix. Like the decisional matrix used for
speed reduction measures, this matrix will be used as a tool to improve
road safety on our territory.
This matrix will serve as a benchmark for the installation of new stop
signs or the removal of others in order to improve traffic flow without
compromising safety. An action plan will be submitted in September.
It will include a procedure identifying the steps to be taken before
changing in any way the stop signs in our town.

New: synthetic field at Parc Westwood
he inauguration of the new synthetic field will take place at the
beginning of August. This long-term effort project was born because of
a grant given under the Programme de soutien aux installations sportives
et récréatives – phase II of the Ministry of Education, Recreation and Sport.
In fact, the Town has received financial assistance representing 50% of the
maximum admissible expenditure for this project, $453,131.
Both soccer and football have become increasingly popular in SaintLazare over the past several years. Each year, the local soccer club now
has 1,800 players and the football association has a membership of over
200. This sports field will therefore be used by athletes of all levels as
well as by an adult and school-age clientele.
Through this financial assistance, the Ministry of Education, Recreation
and Sport improves the quality of sports infrastructures and promote
physical activity, recreation and sports participation among the general
population in a healthy and safe environment.
