The main reason why Mayor Carl Péloquin wanted to be reelected was to continue the economic development of Lachute, citing the new spa manufacturing facility which employs 27 people. He understands that online shopping has greatly affected small stores on Main Street. He mentions that his administration created more parking spots to continue the revitalization of Main Street in order to bring in more people.
“We worked hand-in-hand with stores to develop their online offer and make it an important part of their strategy,” says Péloquin.
He also wants to replace the two existing arenas, including the Brownsburg-Chatham arena, which has “run its course.” The new arena would be built between the Laurentian Regional High School and the Polyvalente Lavigne.
This new construction would enable school boards to create sports study program and fight high school dropout rates. He also wants to finish the library project in the old church.
“We have the wind in our sails and we must continue the work that we were doing,” said Péloquin.
