Lachute borrows $1.1 million to prepare land for new park project near new residential area

The Town of Lachute is planning for a new park near a new development area of the municipality.

Council has approved borrowing $1,150,000 to prepare the property, which will be part of a new residential area that will include an extension of avenue de Lorraine, which is accessible from avenue d’Argenteuil (Route 327).

Lachute Mayor Carl Péloquin said that the borrowed funds will be used to build a parking area, trails, and to install lights and fencing at the 300,000-square-foot/seven-acre property.  Péloquin said the town will also be conducting studies to plan what other recreational opportunities the park will have.  He said that the total park project could end up costing $3 to $4 million.
