    • The catalyst for this project was the unveiling of Montreal’s 2008 Transportation Plan. As a result, the MUEC thought that one course of action that could help achieve the plan’s objectives could be to create a Green Neighbourhood. Then, they launched a call for proposals from citizens and organizations which allowed them to target four main priorities:¶

      • reduce traffic¶
      • increase the sense of safety¶
      • optimize walkability¶
      • build public transport and active transportation networks ¶
