Plans are in the works for a new fire station in Brownsburg-Chatham.
On July 25, town council approved awarding a contract to GBA- Grume bureau d’archictecture for $8,500 to develop architectural plans for a new fire station in Brownsburg. According to Director-General Jean-François Brunet, the plans will be developed to accompany an application the municipality is making to the Québec government for a grant to assist the cost of the new fire station.
The existing fire station in Brownsburg is aging and in September 2021, required emergency repairs on its brick walls.
A new tourist development with an unspecified number of ready-to-camp units will soon be built in Brownsburg-Chatham.

A public meeting required by planning regulations had been held on the proposal in July. Brunet said the municipality did not receive enough signatures to require the proposal to go to a referendum among the residents of neighbouring properties.
