Ce que j'y vois, c'est le peuplement de suburbs fondés sur le modèle de l'automobile comme cela ça se fait dans toutes les villes d'Amérique du Nord. Rien de nouveau ni d'original dans ce phénomène.

Je ne serais pas d'accord avec Pratte sur le point qu'il est trop tard pour rien faire. Sans démolir toute la banlieue qui existe, on peut tout simplement limiter la zone de développement et imposer une ratio élevé d'occupant par superficie obligatoire pour les nouveaux développements. Le temps règlera le reste.

On n'arrivera pas à freiner ce mouvement; de toute façon, il est trop tard.

 

Bullshit.

 

1. Revise zoning laws; restrict the land available for growth thereby preventing new developments (plus, encourage the densification of existing areas)

2. Improve transit - metro, bus, train, tram

3. Provide incentives for new high-density constructions on the island

4. Limit highway proliferation to critical projects only (example : A-30)

5. An extreme measure could be placing tolls on highways

 

The trend is certainly reversible. I think those population projections don't factor in the changing attitudes affecting North America: the return to the city centre. All over North America, the decline of the centre is slowing and in many cities the city centre is being reborn. Montreal will be no different. I firmly believe we'll see tons of new residential projects go up in Montreal and a slowing of new developments in the suburbs.

 

The price of gas is a big factor.. i almost wish it would go back up again. I don't want gas to be ridiculous either, i don't want my trips to Ottawa to cost a fortune, but back to the peak price it was at last year and before would be just right. 1.50$-2.00$ gas is where i would see it, and where i would have it stay permanently if it were possible.

Ça doit absoluement changer et être renversé avec la situation environementale. Le nombre d'autos doivent et la consommation d'essence doit diminuer. Une plus grande taxe sur l'essence pour offrir un crédit aux transporteurs de marchandise et transports en commun pour réduire le coût de celui-ci sans nuire à l'économie. On doit garder notre agriculture dans la vallée du St-Laurent et à Montréal il y a de la place, il faut empêcher les gens de quitter les centres, ce que Cataclaw dit va de soit.

yawn... On a tellement discuté chacuns de ces points que s'en est ridicule.

 

On pourrais légiférer à l'os et on aurait peut-être pas les résultats espérés...

 

Le laisser-faire est la plus simple des solutions.

Pas du tout, je suis pour le libre choix guidé par le gout de chacuns. Tu m''as déjà entendu me plaindre sur une tour trop haute ou un projet trop dense?? Au contraire.

 

À votre déplaisir, je suis contre les règles contraignantes pour imposer un style de vie ou un autre.

 

Live and let live.
