PÉTITION AFIN DE PROMOUVOIR ET PERMETTRE DES ACTIVITÉS AGRICOLES SUR DES PROPRIÉTÉS RÉSIDENTIELLES DE CINQ (5) ACRES ET PLUS DANS LA MUNICIPALITÉ DE PONTIAC

Version téléchargeable

L’objectif de cette pétition est de solliciter votre appui afin que le  conseil municipal mette en œuvre un règlement qui permettrait l’exploitation d’activités agricoles, pour des fins personnelles,  tels que l’élevage d’animaux de ferme, fermettes, sur des propriétés résidentielles de 5 acres et plus.

Une des grandes orientations du PLAN D’URBANISME en vigueur (175-01) est « d’encourager et consolider tous les usages agricoles en désignant des secteurs permettant différents types d’usages, tel des fermettes sur des lots de 5 acres ».  À même la définition de l’usage RURAL RÉSIDENTIEL, cette orientation y est réitérée : « Dans ce sens l’affectation rurale doit aussi permettre des activités d’élevage, d’agriculture et de foresterie ».

Malgré ces directives, le règlement de zonage (177-01) ne permet pas ce type d’activités.

D’autres municipalités de la MRC des collines, tels que Cantley et Val-des-Monts permettent et encouragent les activités agricoles sur des terrains résidentiels de moins de 5 acres.

Sur présentation de cette pétition au conseil municipal, une demande formelle sera faite afin de permettre aux propriétaires de terrains résidentiels de 5 acres et plus d’avoir des animaux de ferme et d’y pratiquer des activités agricoles.

Merci de votre appui dans la mise en valeur du patrimoine agricole de notre belle municipalité de Pontiac.

PETITION TO PROMOTE AND ALLOW AGRICULTURAL ACTIVITIES ON RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES WITH FIVE (5) ACRES OR MORE WITHIN THE MUNICIPALITY OF PONTIAC

Downloadable Version

The purpose of this petition is to ask for your support  with our request to the Municipality of Pontiac’s Council to implement a by-law that will allow the usage of residential properties equal to or larger than 5 acres to practice agricultural activities such as a hobby farm and  raising for their personal use and consumption, farm animals.

Under the current Master Plan (175-01), its vision is to promote and maintain the rich agricultural heritage of the municipality and encourages the residents of the municipality to participate and practice these activities.  The current zoning by-law (177-01) does not allow such agricultural activities on residential properties regardless the amount of acreage.

Other municipalities within the MRC des Collines, for example, Cantley and Val-des-Monts not only allow such agricultural activities on small acreage residential properties but strongly encourage it.

Therefore, by presenting this petition to Council, a formal request will be made to allow owners of residential properties with 5 acres or more to have farm animals and practice agricultural activities.

Thank you for your support in maintaining our agricultural heritage in the beautiful Municipality of Pontiac.

It's smooth and it's quiet with internet access, a 36" flat screen TV and reclining seats and it leaves Allumette Island at 10 minutes to 5 am every day. This is the new coach that runs Route 148 and you can be on it. This week, riders taking the Campeau Bus Line to the city were treated to a brand-new luxury coach, a demonstration vehicle in service before the permanent vehicle becomes available in about a weeks time.

Welcome back. While I wait for my file on the accident (December 4) to be retrieved by the MRC des Collines police, I placed calls to two local people, experts on the trucking of manure. For those who are coming in late to this, see my previous "slippery" stories archived here.

Slippery story: the update

On Monday December 4, a serious accident was caused by some kind of slippery fluid being splashed all over the highway in Luskville. Many people commented on the unexpectedly deep puddles, the effort it took to stay on the road and the horrible stink of it. There was so much, a snow plow was called in to strip it off the road. What was that stuff? Where did it come from? I managed to find someone to talk to from the MTQ within two days. But as yet, my attempts to get information about this incident from the MRC des Collines police have been unproductive. 

Warming up for Christmas at the Santa Claus Parade

Once more the Quyon Lions' Club Santa Claus Parade, held Saturday December 9, was a great success. Warmly-dressed families lined the streets to enjoy the decorated floats, horses and of course, St. Nick himself. As the Beach Barn is conspicuously absent this year, the parade's normal route was reversed, with participants gathering at the Ste. Marie's Catholic church parking lot and walking down the hill to the intersection with Clarendon. From there, the parade continued to the Onslow Elementary School gym where hot food and drinks were served as kids lined up to speak to Santa about a few important matters.

A serious single-vehicle roll-over was caused early morning on December 4 by a deep slick of some kind of waste matter spilled on Highway 148 near Parker Road in Luskville. Pools of what appeared to be septic waste or liquid animal manure were at least two or three meters in length and possibly 4 cm in depth, according to witnesses.
