Standing Committees

Traffic and Safety Committee

The Town’s Traffic and Safety Committee, composed primarily of residents from the Town, meets to discuss issues relating to public safety (including, but not limited to, traffic concerns). Please note: any matters specific to traffic concerns (e.g. speed bumps, street signs, parking, directional change) must be submitted in writing to the attention of Lieutenant Demetrios Georgiou (Public Security) , at Town Hall. Lieutenant Georgiou will, thereafter, where necessary, submit his recommendations to the TSC and the TSC will submit its final recommendation (if any) to Town Council for decision. Any other public safety matters (e.g. theft, graffiti, CPR) should also be sent in writing to the attention of Lieutenant Georgiou. This process will allow us to thoughtfully consider all concerns raised or proposals submitted by residents.


The committee is chaired by Councillor Elizabeth Ulin. Current volunteer community members are:

  • Ilan Rose
  • Charles Dejean
  • Simon Phillipson
  • Ann McLaughlin
  • Joseph Lalla
  • Lieutenant Demetrios Georgiou (Public Security) 




Environmental Action Committee

The Montreal West Environmental Action Committee is a standing advisory committee of Council. It is invested in making the town a more sustainable and environmentally friendly community. The committee was set up with the understanding that towns and citizens need to come together in order to work as responsible actors in lieu of the rapid decline of our global ecology. Through education, action, and policy change, it is committed to making Montreal West a greener neighbourhood. Some of the specific issues dealt with by the committee include: waste management, recycling, composting, pesticide use, energy conservation, and Meadowbrook preservation.





Planning Advisory Committee


The Planning Advisory Committee (PAC) is entrusted with the review of all building projects subject to the Town’s Site Planning and Architectural Integration Program (SPAIP); the projects concerned are, among others, those that aim to modify the exterior appearance of any building within the Town’s boundaries. The PAC formulates recommendations that are transferred to the Town Council for approval.


In addition, the PAC also reviews minor exemption requests and proposed amendments to the various urban planning by-laws. The Town Council may also, at its discretion, give other mandates to the Committee.


The PAC meets once a month.  Please note that there are no meetings in July. 


The committee is chaired by Julie Tasker-Brown. Current members are:

- Jan Davis

- Sabina Kuepper

Substitues are:
