City of Terrebonne, Quebec

Côte Terrebonne Master Plan for Sustainable Development (Urbanova)

Objective

To offer a vision for innovative urban development, encourage best practices in sustainable development and improve municipal sustainable development initiatives.


Initiative

The Urbanova project is based on a plan that integrates environmental, economic and social development. The neighbourhood plan promotes active transportation and proximity to services to minimize GHG emissions, while over 462 hectares of land and more than 160 hectares of wetlands and waterways will be protected by the Environment Quality Act.

Highlights

  • Over 37% of the neighbourhood is earmarked for a biodiversity corridor.
  • 30,000 new residents will enjoy a live-work-play community built around active transportation.
  • All residents will enjoy access to facilities, parks and public spaces.
  • Water, waste and energy efficiency measures target LEED® Neighbourhood certification.

This project received support from FCM's Green Municipal Fund.
