“Understanding Old-Aylmer” is an initiative that places the community at the centre of an examination aimed at drawing an accurate and up to date profile of the sector by those who use and live it day-to-day. This is the first phase of the development of the special planning program for Old-Aylmer.

Through participatory activities, you will get to share what you know about the area and identify the sector's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT), whether in terms of the quality of its environment or its heritage, ambience and friendly neighbourhood, mobility, safety, offer of services and community activities, or anything else that speaks to you.

This diagnosis will be used to develop a broader planning approach aimed at enhancing Old-Aylmer's appeal and the quality of life of its residents. This global approach will take the form of a special planning program (PPU), which is a municipal planning tool that, just like the current exercise, will be based on close collaboration with the community.

What is a special planning program?

A special planning program is component of the urban planning program as defined in sections 85 and 85.1 of the Act respecting land use planning and development

It can be used to prepare a detailed plan for a specific sector in order to better pinpoint challenges and propose tangible development solutions.

What area are we looking at?

  • East-West: from the centre aquatique Paul-Pelletier to parc des Cèdres
  • North-South: from boulevard Lucerne (Route Verte) to rue Brook
