Mr Bourelle: one third of Beaconsfield residents suffer

At the Monday October 26th Council meeting, the mayor showed how short sighted he can be. Challenging our numbers (6,000 residents plus 2,000 kids in schools), he mentioned the 100 or so houses directly on the highway (less than 20 meters), only to mention that some 1,000 are “close”.

Here is our rebuttal – you should look at both sides of the highway, Mr Mayor. One third of your population suffers from the noise on the highway and the MTQ proposal solves only half of that dire situation.

  1. This is a great assessment because since from the early 1990’s when I had bought this home 3 blocks north of hwy 20, the increasing background drone of the highway has increased significantly, so our summer days in our backyard now has quite a louder din going on, reducing significantly our enjoyment of our backyard green space and our property outside. This is unacceptable, when a simple solution of a sound barrier wall is known.

    1. Thank you Mrs Yarmolinski,

      The BPCI understands your position.

      We do not understand why NO CITY ADMINISTRATION DID ANYTHING ABOUT THE NORTH SIDE FOR OVER 30 YEARS.

      This is why we started a petition “to have a preliminary evaluation of the situation and solutions for the north side of the Highway 20”.

      Please sign-in, have you family, your neighbours, your friends sign this petition so that we build a strong representation when we will meet with the mayor.
