A number of landowners/developers that own "greenfield" land in the Bouffard and Howard Planning Districts have retained Dillon Consulting, to complete the required work to prepare an addendum to the existing Bouffard and Howard Municipal Class Environmental Assessment.

Fire Substation, Community Room and Redesigned Park

The Town of LaSalle is in the process of implementing the recommendations of the current Fire Master Plan. That plan includes the construction of a second, satellite fire station to be located in the western urban area of LaSalle. The recommended location for this community fire station is on Hazel St. at John Dupuis Park, formerly the Col. Bishop School and community center. The current plan also includes construction of a community room, providing an additional amenity to residents and businesses in town, as well as a redesigned community park.

A public open house and information session was held on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at the LaSalle Civic Centre. At the open house, residents viewed the proposed site plan and conceptual designs, and were able to ask questions about the project.

Comments about the proposed fire substation and location will be received until Monday, June 19 (date extended). All residents of LaSalle are welcome to provide comments on the project. Administration will be presenting a report to Council at the July 11, 2017 LaSalle Council Meeting.
