4 NDG Priority Sectors
Supporting Actions and Mobilizing Residents
The NDG Community Council works in partnership and consultation with a wide range of organizations, groups, and residents concerned with the revitalisation of NDG’s four priority sectors
- Saint-Raymond, Benny Farm, Westhaven, Fielding-Walkley -
to support all manner of community development initiatives and services,
from community gardens to social housing,
from resident mobilisation to cultural celebrations,
and much more.
Benny Farm is one of the four key sectors in NDG. The steering committee is in the process of changing the Benny Farm map to include all the residents and partners that we work with. The new neighborhood boundary includes; Terrebonne St. on the North and Sherbrooke Street W. on the south and Madison Av.on the East and Prince of Wales Av. on the West. The Council approached various stakeholders and key actors within the community including residents and partners working in the sector in order to voice their concerns and visions for Benny Farm
Saint-Raymond is a small but diverse neighbourhood at the southern edge of NDG, squeezed between the commuter rail tracks and the steep St-Jacques escarpment, with the Decarie expressway to the east and rue Cavendish as its western boundary. Historically an Italian neighbourhood – known to some as little Little Italy - Saint-Raymond today is a rich mix of languages and cultures, with an active community life. The neighbourhood has been of particular interest in recent years due to multiple nearby megaprojects that are greatly impacting the community - notably the new MUHC mega-hospital, and the ongoing reconstruction of the massive Turcot interchange. Traffic, commerce, rents, land-values, and the quality of the environment are all being significantly impacted by these projects.
Westhaven is one of the four key sectors in NDG. The neighborhood is bound by Saint-Jacques and Sherbrooke Street on the east and west and West Broadway and Connaught on the north and south.
The Council works with key stakeholders and actors within the community including residents, volunteers, employees and business owners in order to give voice to their concerns and visions for Westhaven.
Since the fall of 2012, residents of the Fielding-Walkley neighborhood have been getting together and meeting to take actions in their community for things they care about. All residents of the area are invited to participate and make their voices heard!
