New Urban Parc

Hi,

I guess many of you saw the announcement made by our mayor yesterday about the creation of an huge parc here in the west island. Here's a link to an article from radio-canada: https://ici.radio-canada.ca/nouvelle...e-vert-canada: https://ici.radio-canada.ca/nouvelle...ce-vert-canada

This new parc will encompass the Wimac club; the mayor hinted that negotiations will start for the city to acquire lands that are presently privately owned (such as Wimac's). As you know, parcs are usually off limits to RC controlled airplanes and drones. I think the club will have to lobby actively to retain it's advantages and rights to remain where it is. Anyway, I do not yet have much info about this project and I wanted to start a thread so that everyone can participate in the discussion.

Best,

Thanks for the info, I did see the announcement.
Let's not jump the gun, WIMAC is located on private land owned by Grilli
Let's see what conspires in the next couple of months.

Ya, this is still just a pipe dream and will take some time to negociate with the land onwners to transfer property titles. Depends how much they want to spend.
Meanwhile I think WIMAC is going to have a say one day as a organization if and when the land changes hands and becomes a municipal park. Then we all go to park flyers hehehehe…..
