Integrated Urban Revitalization
Project – Airlie/Bayne Area
Phase 1: Diagnosis
The area bounded by Airlie, Bayne, 80e Avenue and
90e Avenue has been identified as being very disadvantaged by the
borough of LaSalle, neighbourhood police station 13, the CSSS
Dorval-Lachine-LaSalle, the Table de développement social de LaSalle, the
Carrefour Jeunesse Emploi, the CDEC LaSalle–Lachine, P.R.I.S.M.E. and residents
in the area.
A relatively hemmed-in area of the Borough, with major roads crossing it,
this block has buildings and apartments, along Airlie and Bayne, that have
considerably deteriorated over the years, and that are occupied by a transient
clientele today and house a poor population on the fringe of society.
For many years, the Airlie/Bayne area has been suffering from the
impoverishment of its population and certain social realities associated with
it: recent immigration, single parenthood, a high rate of unemployment and
inactivity, a deterioration in the quality of the living environment and retail
offering, crime, a feeling of insecurity and neglect among the residents,
The Table de développement social de LaSalle has been directed by the
borough of LaSalle, which wants to mobilize the residents in the neighbourhood
and all stakeholders in the community, to coordinate the initial phase of an
integrated urban revitalization effort for this area. This initial phase
consists of two steps—the first, to develop a diagnosis of the neighbourhood,
and the second, to set up a local action plan.
This revitalization effort is being managed by the Comité de revitalisation
Airlie (CRA), whose members are regional and local stakeholders. In addition,
the Table de développement social, through the support of the Direction de santé
publique (DSP) de Montréal, is backing the training and mobilization of a
committee of residents actively taking part in the revitalization effort.
The enclosed document (in French) presents the project to reduce heat
islands—called Ma cour, ma rue, mon quartier (or literally, "My backyard, my
street, my neighbourhood").
