Well Sud: the City hires a liaison officer
In a few weeks, a resource will be hired to act as a pivot for the development projects underway in downtown Sherbrooke.
The City has hired a liaison officer within the Assistant Directorate General – Development and Partnership. Bianca de La Fontaine “will occupy a nerve center in the field from February 10,” it was announced.
Over the next three years, the Quartier Well Sud project, the redevelopment of the Grandes-Fourches Nord motorway and the repair of part of rue Galt Ouest will affect nearly 300 businesses and community organizations, as well as several hundred residents, estimates the municipal administration.
“The liaison officer will act as a transmission belt between the various stakeholders in the city center, the municipal services and the professionals on the construction sites,” said a press release.
Bianca de La Fontaine recently played a similar role in the Magog downtown revitalization project.
“His hiring is for a period of three years,” said one.
“It is part of several mitigation measures that will be put in place in the short term to help all downtown players who could be affected by the various major projects.”
As a reminder, work on the southern portion of Wellington Street in the city center began in early December. The multi-storey parking lot fell under the peak of the demolishers for the realization of the Espace Centro project in the Well South district.
