Sequence of events leading up to the register

At the June 19th 2013 Pierrefonds-Roxboro council meeting, borough officials presented a sequence of events that will likely take place to arrive at a decision regarding the Vered Group development proposed for Gouin-Aumais properties that include the historic Theoret house.

= = = = = =
July 16 2013 at 18:30 – Public consultation on the proposed Gouin Aumais project
– Mr. Papineau of the borough may do a PowerPoint presentation on the project
– Questions will be permitted from the audience, no need to register
– Note – Often the borough likes to keep the consultation moving and keep it short so that the council meeting can be started on time. It is up to residents to be present and persistent if more time is required for a full and proper and comprehensive consultation
– Immediately after the consultation will be borough council meeting at 19:00

= = = = = =
July 16 2013 19:00 – Pierrefonds-Roxboro council meeting, borough hall
– Residents must register prior to the meeting if they wish to ask questions to council

– Council will likely adopt the second draft resolution for the Vered Group project
– In the past it has been observed that it is very rare that council withdraws a decision regarding a project following a public consultation on the project – It should be anticipated that council will move ahead on this issue

= = = = = =
July 24 2013
– A notice will be published (Likely in Cites Nouvelles and on borough website) informing concerned residents they can submit a request for a register to be held on the project
– Information coming soon here on which zones residents could submit a request for a register
– Residents who live in H3-4-265, H1-4-262, H3-4-261, along with residents who live in zones adjacent to them, are likely the residents who will be able to submit a request for a register

= = = = = =
July 24 to August 1 2013
– Period in which concerned residents can submit a valid request for a register regarding the project
– Note that a request for a register may be declared invalid by the borough clerk (Me Corbeil) if the borough clerk determines the request submitted is not valid
– It is thus very important to work closely with the borough clerk and receive full and complete guidelines and if possible confirmation ahead of time that the proposed procedure is indeed valid
– Some may argue that it is best to submit a request early and ask (demand) that the request be confirmed as valid as early as possible so that if it is rejected, then residents have enough time to submit a second and proper request for a register

= = = = = =
16:00 Thursday August 1st 2013
– Last day for concerned residents to submit to the borough a valid request for a register regarding the project

= = = = = =
August 1 2013
– If there is no valid request submitted for a register then the resolution takes effect immediately
– If a valid request or requests for a register is submitted, then council has approximately 24 (or 45?) days to set a date and to have concerned residents sign the register
– If a valid request is received by the borough the borough clerk will then take some time to retrieve information from the electoral voters list to determine the total number of residents involved in the register which will then help set the targets for how many valid register signatures will eventually be required on the day of the register

= = = = = =
Aug 5 2013 council meeting
– Council informs there are 6 zones opened for a register
– Register may take place around Sept 9 2013

= = = = = =
Sept. 3 2013
– Pierrefonds Roxboro Borough Council Meeting
– The results of the register will be presented
– If there is deemed to be a sufficient number of register signatures then council will have 3 options:
– 1) Council could decide to withdraw the resolution and drop the project
– 2) Council could decide to offer a public referendum on the project – this would involve setting up another voting process for concerned residents
– 3) Council could decide to let the project move forward anyway

= = = = = =
Sept 9 2013 – possible day of the register
– Note that it is the borough who manages the process of residents signing the register
– If residents do not have valid identification the borough will not let them sign the register
– The residents must also know how to complete and to properly sign the register
– It is the borough who collects the signatures and they determine behind closed doors how many signatures are considered valid
– There is no third party verification of the register results
– Residents have an interest in keeping their own record and count of signatures on the day of the register
– As part of the register process, the results are often counted and declared at borough hall by the borough clerk after the closing of the register
– TBD if in this case, will the resolution become in effect if there is not sufficent valid signatures on the day of the register
