Calling All Friends of Parc Oxygene! Important Meeting September 3rd

Calling All Friends of Parc Oxygene! Important Meeting September 3rd

Calling all friends of Parc Oxygène!

Parc Oxygène is a small inner-city green space located off Hutchison Street, between Prince Arthur & Pins. Twenty-three years ago the land was sold in error in a tax sale. The City stated its intention to recover the land – but didn’t. The park has been created and maintained by local residents for more than 20 years. Citizens from the area want to preserve this park for the use and enjoyment of all. Now it is being threatened by a possible condominium development.

The developer is on the verge of getting his permit to destroy the park, and the Save Parc Oxygene Committee needs to rally the troops to pressure the Borough to act now, before it’s too late! The Committee is asking them to accept the proposal of a land exchange and resolve the park issue once and for all. 

On Tuesday, Sept 3, 7pm, the Mont Royal Borough meets at l’ENAP (École nationale d’administration publique), 4750 avenue Henri Julien. The Committee and its allies will be there to pressure them to act to save Parc Oxygène. They need as many people as possible to attend this open meeting.
