The City plans to use the land at boul. Milan to set up new infrastructures there that will serve residents and ensure that the latter will be consulted in due course on the desired use of this space.
“What a great project for the elected officials of the next Brossard municipal council to be able to decide on the future of this building !,” said the mayor. It’s going to be a great project for the City. ”
“A new future is emerging for this land and it will be up to the next council to be able to address it,” added the sector councilor, Michel Gervais. I am convinced that it will be to the satisfaction of the people and to the satisfaction of the City. ”
