This is confirmed in any practical purpose, the library Plateau in Gatineau area will not host the public in 2017, as planned.
“It is clear that in our deployment plan, it is late, but we did many things together and at some point, we must make choices,” said the mayor, Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin.
In May, the advisor of the Plateau, Maxime Tremblay, said in an interview with Le Droit worry about delays in the progress of the file. Well on Tuesday, although his fears are confirmed, it seemed rather serene.
Mr. Tremblay had some reasons to smile thinking of this library since the Board approved the transfer of a sum of $ 4 million for project planning.
“This is good news for the village [urban Plateau],” the elected district.
“The library is probably the spark plug for the village because, when you put a quality public infrastructure in an environment like this, it’s where there are small shops that install this is where we get to create a really interesting area of life, “says Jobin-Pedneaud.
Maxime Tremblay also said that it would be an investment of approximately $ 13 million, more than half of the funds earmarked in 2014 for the library deployment plan ($ 21.9 million).
If the mayor confirmed that the figure is realistic, he refused to confirm since the draft of the final amount will depend on several factors still undetermined, including the successful field for the library.
Recall that once the library delivered Plateau, Gatineau will address the rehabilitation of Lucy-Farris libraries (Aylmer sector) and Guy-Sanche (Gatineau sector).
