Rielle mechanical ventilation station

Public consultation for the Rielle mechanical ventilation station

Public consultation

Before presenting the project to the City of Montréal and requesting a by-law change, the STM hired an independent commission to lead a public consultation, so that community members would have the chance to express their opinions on the Rielle mechanical ventilation station (MVS) expansion project. The commission will collect the community’s comments and suggestions to prepare its report.

The MVS is located between Rielle and Gordon streets, north of Wellington Street, next to the Gordon municipal parking lot. It has reached the end of its useful life and needs to be expanded and upgraded to comply with current noise and ventilation standards.

This project is part of our métro network infrastructure update program.

Information on the public consultation process

 

To carry out the Rielle MVS expansion and upgrade project, the STM must obtain a by-law from the City of Montréal’s Agglomeration Council to ensure that the project is compliant.

To obtain this by-law, the STM must first hold a public consultation in accordance with its corporate policy entitled “Politique de consultation publique – réseau du métro (PC 1.14).”

Once the consultation process has been completed, the independent commission will submit its report.

  • Our Board of Directors initiates the consultation process by creating a commission.
  • The commission is made up of a chair and two commissioners from outside the STM who are mandated by the STM’s Board of Directors.
  • Citizens are invited to take part in the public consultation through various means of communication such as the website, newspapers, posters at the planned worksite and invitations delivered to mailboxes.
  • Citizens are invited to take part in three ways:
    • By attending the information session, with project presentation and question period
    • By attending the input session
    • By sending in their written opinion regarding the consultation
  • The commissioners then submit a report to the STM with their recommendations based on citizens’ comments.
  • The commission’s work ends once the report is submitted.
