Parc-Extension Residents Rally in Opposition to the Plaza Hutchison Redevelopment Plan

What: Rally outside the  Comité Consultatif Urbain of Villeray-St-Michel-Parc-Extension meeting
When: Monday February 12, 2018 at 6pm
Where: Metro Parc

Parc-Extension community members will be taking the streets as the Comité Consultatif Urbain (CCU) of Villeray-St-Michel-Parc-Extension meets behind closed doors to discuss Ron Basal's proposal to build luxury apartments in Plaza Hutchison.  The meetings of the CCU, the identity of their members, their agenda, and the decisions they make are totally secret and not accountable to the community.

A recommendation from the CCU would pave the way for Ron Basal to obtain permits and proceed with construction at Plaza Hutchison- a longtime community hub that has housed community organizations, language schools, radio stations, and small local businesses for decades. Residents will be denouncing the CCU's lack of transparency and demanding an end to the Plaza Hutchison redevelopment project.
