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.

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.

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. The studies were conducted as part of the special urban planning program (PPU) for the municipality’s north sector. The posting of these studies comes after the May 2015 information session on the potential development scenario, which was aimed at presenting the general philosophy and plan of the PPU project to residents while also listening to residents’ concerns.

According to Paola Hawa, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue’s mayor, “ninety percent of the work on the PPU has now been completed. We want to take residents’ comments into account before concluding the exercise. We have a duty to respect our commitment to take a new thoughtful and responsible approach, which is why we have been including residents at every stage of the process.”

Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue residents are invited to read the results of the studies to get a clear picture of the impacts of development in the north sector. They will then be invited to a public information session on the PPU for this sector on October 12th.

The studies will be posted online on September 26th, on this page.

New prohibition concerning pesticides

The City now bans the use of pesticides of the neonicotinoid family.

Neonicotinoids are pesticides that are used as insecticides to fight against different types of insects. They are systemic pesticides which, once applied, are distributed to all parts of the plant, making it toxic to insects, especially bees.

Any use of pesticides of the neonicotinoid family is now prohibited outside of buildings. This applies without exception to any type of application or land uses.
Despite this prohibition, there are some exceptions to the pesticide application, other than pesticides of the neonicotinoid family, which may be permitted, provided a temporary permit is obtained from the Urban planning department.

Please consult our bylaw #790 concerning the use of pesticides.
