News Release Town of Mount Royal
Even though REM work is temporarily disrupting activities in the town centre, the municipality’s historical, civic and commercial hub, the “Lights up on downtown” campaign has promised to spread various initiatives throughout the sector to boost traffic despite the constraints.
In 2020, as part of these initiatives, a building site fence was decorated with a temporary mural, We are Roses, produced in collaboration with MU and with financial contributions from CDPQ Infra. The Town’s contest to name the new public square was another initiative that helped keep the spotlight on this vital Mount Royal sector. Future initiatives will continue showcasing the arts, local business owners and local history, using the changing seasons to liven up the town centre.
