Bleu Lavande in Magog: a “fabulous” project according to Bélanger
The plan to relocate the Bleu lavande company to Magog greatly appeals to Orford MP Gilles Bélanger. ” It is fabulous! “, He says with enthusiasm.
M . Bélanger knows well the sector where Bleu lavande would set up in Magog since it was at the origin of the construction of the Carrefour santé global, a shopping center located not far from the land coveted by the SME.
“If this business were on Principale West in this sector, it would make a great entry window for Magog. And, given that there are a lot of vehicles circulating in the area, it would be good for Bleu lavande. Maybe she would be able to sell an even wider range of products there, “said the member for Orford.
In the opinion of Gilles Bélanger, the arrival of Bleu lavande along the rue Principale Ouest would enhance the offer of activities in Magog during the summer season. “There are already Lake Memphremagog and Mount Orford that attract people. It would be a great addition, especially since Bleu lavande takes people outside and puts them in contact with natural products. ”
In addition, Mr. Bélanger affirms that the Township of Stanstead would not lose everything, in the event that Bleu lavande is proceeding with the move of its agrotourism estate.
“Whatever happens, the buildings occupied by the company in this municipality will certainly not be razed. A new interesting project would therefore be possible on site thanks to them. In other words, the investments made in recent years would not be lost. ”
Mayor of the Canton of Stanstead, Francine Caron Markwell reveals that she was unaware that Lavender Blue was planning to move its agrotourism estate to Magog soil.
“I don’t know what impact it could have on us. I would have to know more to decide. Among other things, I do not have figures to assess the spinoffs of this company with us. But I still understand that, for her, it would be more interesting to have a store with a storefront in Magog rather than in the Canton of Stanstead, ”she said.
As a reminder, Bleu lavande has filed a zoning change request in order to be able to establish itself on a former golf practice field near Principale Street West. His move project is conditional upon obtaining this zoning modification.
