The advisory committees in Montreal West support the work of the Town Council. Each is composed of Town residents and chaired by one of the four councillors.

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 that any matters specific to traffic concerns (e.g. speed bumps, street signs, parking, directional change) must be submitted in writing at Town Hall, to the attention of Lieutenant Demetrios Georgiou (Public Security). Where necessary, Lieutenant Georgiou will submit his recommendations to the TSC and the TSC will then 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.

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 or twice a month.
