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. 

Tourism development 

A new tourist development with an unspecified number of ready-to-camp units will soon be built in Brownsburg-Chatham. On July 25, council approved the proposed development, which will be located on chemin Campbell. The ready-to-camp units will be located near a central building on the site. 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. 

Bridge work 

Pont Parson in Brownsburg-Chatham will soon be undergoing rehabilitation work. On July 25, town council approved spending $531,905 on the project to repair the bridge.
