MESSagE fRoM thE MayoR
Hello everyone,
Marc Lauzon
Maire
On the evening of October 3rd, Ville de DeuxMontagnes held a public meeting on our City’s future.
It was meant as a follow-up to the June 12th public
consultation meeting on the draft bylaw to amend the
municipal urban plan. The October meeting provided
an opportunity to respond to questions and comments
generated by the bylaw in the past few weeks.
A study we conducted helped identify a dozen
projects that would create more than $204 million in
new real estate value and generate more than $2
million annually in property taxes. The projects would
be in sync with the City’s development plan, since it
would preserve the city’s character and natural
environment and ensure its long-term fiscal health.
Ville de Deux-Montagnes was developed as a
bedroom community in the late 20th century. As a
result, the residential sector accounts for 85% of
current tax revenues. Real estate development
reached maturity in the 2000s, weakening the City’s
financial position.
By encouraging responsible urban redevelopment
based on sustainable development principles, our
vision for Deux-Montagnes over the next 15 years
consists of a lively, welcoming, and environmentallyconscious city, a population under 20 000, a better
distribution of the tax base for our citizens, more local
shops, restaurants and offices on our main streets,
better access to our waterways and walking trails, as
well as revitalized and vibrant hubs with public
squares that make neighbourhoods more livable and
attractive.

New revenues must be generated to ensure the
City’s long-term fiscal health. This entails the
redevelopment of specific areas. Our urban plan
needs to be amended before we can move forward.
This will enable us to plan our development according
to our needs, while complying with new government
regulations. Amending our urban plan involves
overseeing and structuring areas for development
and redevelopment in order to meet our objectives.
It also requires the establishment of densification
thresholds in order to preserve our parks and green
spaces, as well as the City’s image and distinctive
character.

October 3rd presentation and other related documents

Community Hall
gets a facelift!
Ville de Deux-Montagnes is pleased to announce that its community
hall located at 200 Henri-Dunant, in the basement of the Community
Centre, has just undergone a facelift!
The premises, intended mainly for accredited organizations, underwent
a complete overhaul. Its new floor and freshly painted walls make it a
very pleasant venue for up to fifty people.
For more information, please contact the Leisure and Community
Services Department at 450-473-4700.
appreciation night at
the fire Department Annual
On May 4th the official medal ceremony was held for
members of the Deux-Montagnes/Sainte-Marthe-sur-le-Lac
Intermunicipal Fire Department. Members of the squad and
the intermunicipal fire committee were all invited to take
part.
On this special evening, 10 honoured members received
either a medal for completing 20 years of dedicated and loyal
service or a ribbon for 30 years of service. The Fire Services
Exemplary Service Medal was created on August 29, 1985,
to honour members of a Canadian fire service in the
performance of duties involving potential risks. Exemplary
service is characterized by good conduct, industry and
efficiency. Director Ron Hunt took great pride in handing the
award to the following members:

Action Plan
for persons

In May, Ville de Deux-Montagnes adopted an Annual Action Plan for
persons with disabilities. This action plan is pursuant to Section 61.1
of an Act to secure handicapped persons in the exercise of their rights
with a view to achieving social, school and workplace integration.
To adequately protect all citizens in the event of a disaster and to make
sure we have an up-to-date registry of special needs housing and of
buildings used by disabled or mobility-impaired persons, the City
encourages individuals with functional limitations to provide contact
details and relevant information of their condition to Maryse Lahaie at
the Deux-Montagnes/Sainte-Marthe-sur-le-Lac Intermunicipal Fire
Department at 450 473-2730.

A new face at City Hall
NEW
MEMOrIAL BENCHES
September 24th marked Nadine Ferrara’s first day on the job
as a Communications and Special Projects
Assistant. Holding a BA in Urban Planning,
Nadine worked in a variety of positions
where she honed her communication,
project management and coordination
skills.
Through the generosity of Susan Campbell, a native of DeuxMontagnes who now lives in Chicago, citizens can now relax
on one of the two new memorial benches that were installed
this summer near 5th Avenue and École des Mésanges
(14th Avenue).
Welcome aboard, Nadine!
The benches were donated in memory of Susan Campbell’s
mother and her late grandparents (Dubuc-Gore family) who
lived in Deux-Montagnes. On October 12th, Suzanne Campbell
sat on one of the benches next to her father and her spouse,
immortalizing this symbol of recognition and generosity.
A new shop on 7th avenue!
altération Sylvie
Let’s not forget that Susan Campbell had already provided the
City with a family memorial bench that now sits on the floor of
the Holy Family Church. She plans to provide more benches in
the future. What a great way to remember the city’s first
residents and make the park more attractive!
Good news for citizens – a new person
will be greeting them behind the
counter of the sewing shop located at
222, 7th Avenue in Deux-Montagnes. A
new owner, Sylvie Raymond, took
over the business on March 1st, 2012.
The friendly and cheerful seamstress
is a perfectionist who specializes in
tailoring clothes for men and
women. Her prices are competitive,
and she also provides external
references for more specialized
services.

The Deux-Montagnes Regional Police

the new colours for its fleet of vehicles, to
be phased in gradually.
Help us do our job by complying with applicable by-laws and using
common sense practices:
The more modern lettering remains clearly
visible, and the service always top-notch!
Drinking and
Driving
Please note that the SPRDM will be setting
up numerous roadblocks in the coming
months to crack down on drinking and
driving.
The drinking and driving problem isn't
confined to repeat offenders. According to
police, most offences and alcohol-related
accidents involve drivers with no prior DUI
violations.
It is possible to avoid the tragic
consequences of drunk driving. Choosing
not to drive after consuming alcohol is the
safe and responsible approach.

• No overnight parking on the street
• Snow from your driveway must be kept on your property and not dumped
on the street. Otherwise, the snowplow will most likely push it back into
your driveway.
• To facilitate snow-clearing operations, avoid leaving your car on the street
all day.
• Place your trash or recycling bin inside the edge of the sidewalk or asphalt
so street and sidewalk crews don’t need to step out of their vehicles.
• Keep an eye out for heavy-duty vehicles
clearing snow or spreading abrasives.
They stop and back up often.
Thanks for your patience
and collaboration!

Deux-Montagnes
region
The Champagne-Lapointe family saw their
dream come true in November. The Board of
Directors of Habitat for Humanity DeuxMontagnes Region (HPHRDM) handed them
the keys to their new home in the presence
of partners and elected officials.
Located at 3031 Paul Street in SainteMarthe-sur-le-Lac, the house was built in five
months and is safe, decent and affordable.
Congratulations to all for this wonderful
project!

thE gREEn PagE
botanIcaL tERMS
It’s easy to be confused by all the plant names
such as families, species, genus, varieties, cultivars and hybrids.
Here's some info to help you make sense of it all.
Exemples:
Spiraea japonica «Flaming Mound», Japanese spirea
Spiraea japonica «Anthony Waterer», Japanese spirea
Spiraea japonica «Neon Flash», Japanese spirea
Plants are usually named after the botanists who discovered
them. The name may also refer to the colour of the plant, its
flower or foliage, its particular shape or unique growth habit, its
foliage or its ability to attract insects.
A hybrid is the result of a cross between two plants of the
same genus or same species. Hybridizations are natural or
artificially induced through controlled pollination. To indicate its
hybrid origins, an "x" is placed before the genus name for an
intergeneric hybrid or before the species name for an
interspecific hybrid.
To help us understand, let's take a look at the classification
system of plant names, as there are more than 600,000 plant
species on earth. Differences between family, genus and
species are based on the theory of evolution.
Exemples :
Spiraea x arguta,
(hybridization of Spiraea
japonica x Spiraea albiflora)
Spiraea x vanhouttei,
(hybridization of Spiraea
trilobata x Spiraea
cantoniensis)
The family consists of genera that share common genes and
traits, since they come from the same parents. As a result, these
plants resemble each other more. Names of plant families end
in "aceae." For example, the Rosaceae family includes the
crab apple (Malus sp.), spirea (Spiraea sp.), cinquefoil (Potentilla
sp.), cherry (Prunus sp.) and rose (Rosa sp.).
The genus is the first term or word in the nomenclature. It
includes all species of a plant. For example, the different types
of spirea are all grouped together under the Latin name of
Spiraea.
The species is the second word in the nomenclature and is
written in Latin in lowercase. It distinguishes members of a
group from each other. Plants in this group are able to reproduce
among themselves, but usually not with members of another
species. The species’ unique genetic features are passed on
from generation to generation through their seeds.
Exemples:
Spiraea latifolia, broad-leaved meadowsweet
Spiraea japonica, Japanese spirea
Spiraea thunbergii, Thunberg's spirea
The term variety refers to plants of the same species that
differ from other members of that species. The plant’s
characteristics can be passed on from one generation to another
through seeds.
A cultivar is the result of a hybridization, selection or
mutation. Contrary to a variety, a cultivar is not capable of
transmitting its characteristics by seed. Cultivars are propagated
vegetatively by such means as cuttings.
Variety or cultivar names must be enclosed in quotation marks
and be capitalized.

Le monde merveilleux des contes
with Isabelle Larouche
Biboche is very fond of books. When he was little, he
devoured them! Yep! He nibbled pages! Such a shame,
because the stories ended up full of holes ... Luckily, he
realized that storybooks contained hidden treasures that
were not to be eaten. He now turns the pages and dives
into the fairy tales. And you, do you know the three little
pigs? Jack and the Magic Beanstalk? Pinocchio?
