Water use

In June 2016, the City Council adopted new water use billing rates according to the user-pay principle. These new rates aimed  to reward users who control  their consumption of drinking water.

 

In addition to individual economics, according to the latest data, we have collectively reduced our drinking water consumption, generating a refund of more than $58 000 from the City of Montreal.  

We wish to thank our citizens for their cooperation and we are pleased to continue together to support the preservation of quality and the quantity of the resource.

 

Reminder concerning the watering by-law

Manual watering, using a pipe with a self-closing device is permitted at all times.

Watering of lawns by removable sprinklers or porous pipes is permitted only from 8 pm to 11 pm on the following days:

  • for occupants of dwellings whose civic number is an even number, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays;
  • for occupants whose dwelling number is an odd number, on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays;

Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is permitted to  water a new lawn every day between 8 pm and 11 pm for a period of 15 days after the commencement of the installation of lawn.

As for automatic watering systems, it is permitted to water only from 3 am to 6 am on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Latest news - PPU

Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue’s City Council officially marked the first stage of the adoption process of the Plan Particulier d’Urbanisme (PPU) of its North Sector, by unanimously adopting the PPU and its concordance by-laws on Monday, May 1st, at a special sitting of City Council at Centre Harpell.

“We are finally at the last stage of a long process that will lead to the implementation of an innovative North Sector PPU in harmony with the environment, while meeting the expectations of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue residents. We have been front and centre throughout this exercise that initially started in 2014, deploying our work in an open and transparent manner, and continuously listening to our fellow citizens’ concerns. These fundamental principles have made it possible for the members of City Council to come to a general agreement. This will be a successful, unifying project we can be proud of”, said Paola Hawa, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue’s Mayor.

The North Sector PPU is the result of a process based on citizen engagement that begin in the  Spring of 2015. From citizen workshops to briefing sessions held on May 20, 2015 and December 14, 2016, citizens were kept at the core of the procedures. The planning stages and the vision for the North Sector have been significantly influenced by comments and concerns expressed by our citizens.  Moreover, the 2016 announcement of the proposed Metropolitan Electric Network (or REM – Réseau électrique métropolitain), added a much greater potential for human mobility, and has considerably reoriented the development of the PPU.

Within the framework of a public consultation, citizens will have yet again another opportunity to express their views regarding the North Sector PPU before its final adoption. This assembly will be held on May 25, at 7:00 p.m. at a location that will soon be disclosed.

Meanwhile, citizens are invited to download the PPU project, adopted during the May 1st special sitting of City Council, along with the concordance by-laws, which will be available this Wednesday May 3, in the “Municipality” section, under the “Programme particulier d’urbanisme” tab, on our website, at www.sadb.qc.ca. We invite you to follow the “Planification du secteur Nord” section on our Facebook page to know the location of the next public consultation.

TOGETHER! FOR A VISION OF THE NORTH SECTOR THAT UNITES US AND REFLECTS WHO WE ARE!

Special sitting of City Council : Adoption of the PPU project and concordance by-laws

On Monday, May 1st at 7 pm at Centre Harpell, there will be a special sitting of City Council to :

  1. Adopt the Plan Particulier d’urbanisme (PPU) for the City’s north sector and the urban planning by-laws  to ensure its implementation;
  2. Adopt the draft by-laws to ensure the conformity of the plan and the urban planning by-law with the schéma d’aménagement et de développement de l’agglomération de Montréal (concordance)

Due to the large volume of documents, no papier copies will be available for citizens at the special sitting. However, all documentation will be available on our website the following day (Tuesday, May 2nd) so that citizens can read it before the public consultation meeting that will take place on Tuesday, May 16th.

Temporary car shelters

Itinerant collection of hazardous household waste (HHW)

At the beginning of the year, the City of Montreal's Department of the Environment informed us that it will unilaterally and definitively stop the HHW itinerant collection service on the territory of the City of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue.

We consider this decision to be difficult to understand from an environmental point of view. Based primarily on the costs involved in this pickup, this decision deprives the citizens of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue of a "service" for which they pay  through the « quote-part » of the Montreal Agglomeration.

The citizens of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue must now drop off  their hazardous household waste (HHW) at the nearest Ecocentre. The most common HHW are paint, used oils and mercury lamps. These items are covered by the responsabilité élargie des producteurs (REP) program. You can drop off these items free of charge at retailers such as Canadian Tire, Patrick Morin and Centre de Rénovation RONA.

Although the Écocentres are open throughout the year , we have reached an agreement with the City of Baie D'Urfé so that citizens of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue can drop off their HHW on Saturday, May 20th between 9 am and 5 pm at the Baie D'Urfé municipal garage located at 300 Surrey Street.

Free compost

On May 20th, 21st and 22nd, 2017, there will be 3 locations for Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue residents to receive compost free of charge.

Snow Alert: Recycling pickup postponed

Water bill

Citizens of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue have received, in the last few weeks,  their water bill, based on the water meter reading of October or November 2016.

As mentioned in previous messages, City Council adopted new water use billing rates, in 2016, according to the user-pay principle. These new rates aim to reward users who control their consumption of drinking water.

If you have any questions or if you find that your water bill appears to be incorrect, please contact Ms. Isabelle Paiement at the Taxation Department at 514-457-7554 or by email at ipaiement@sadb.qc.ca.

However, before contacting us, please have the current reading of your water meter in hand (in m3 or gallon) to help us analyze your file. You can also email us (ipaiement@sadb.qc.ca) a high-quality picture of your water meter or call us (514-457-7554) to make an appointment with us so that a city employee can go to your home or institution to take a reading of your water meter.

Impact studies of PPU posted online

The City of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue’s municipal council is pleased to announce that it will be sharing studies that were done over the past 3 years concerning biological inventories, ecologically valuable areas, and traffic, along with a master plan for the sewer and water main network in its northern sector on the city’s website on September 26th.
