Solar panels on the roof of Saint-Laurent's borough hall building.
As part of its latest Three-year capital investment program, Saint-Laurent has undertaken a number of projects to improve the energy efficiency of its municipal buildings and park lighting. In accordance with the guidelines of its new Ten-year capital investment program and its objective to fight climate change, the borough will continue its efforts in the coming years.
"As a sustainable municipal territory since 2019, Saint-Laurent integrates sustainable development and environmental protection in all its decisions," said Alan DeSousa, Mayor of Saint-Laurent. "This principle therefore also applies to our choice of investment projects, including those for our municipal facilities, whether in our buildings or for park and street lighting. With this in mind, we are proud to offer our residents and employees a "greener" borough hall, including solar panels on its roof. As well, the LEED Gold certification of the Parc Decelles chalet adds to our long list of green buildings. Coupled with LED lighting in many of our parks, we are investing to implement innovative and concrete solutions in response to the climate emergency."
About the Saint-Laurent's 10-year-capital investment program
Covering the years from 2021 to 2030, Saint-Laurent's Ten-year capital investment program is designed to plan investments to improve the borough's parks, roads and public buildings. With a budget of $97 million, this program allows for great flexibility in carrying out priority projects. It replaces the Three-year capital investment program that is usually adopted each year in conjunction with the operating budget.
