Reinvent the City

60313519_LacMEC_Plan avec réinventée la ville.inddOur objective is to define a new downtown that will cater the needs for a dynamic City and region, and which will contribute to the local and regional economy.

The challenges are numerous and important. Still, this reconstruction offers the Méganticois a unique opportunity to have access to a city center that is functional, attractive, prosperous, user-friendly, welcoming, green and up lifting. A dynamic city center that reflects the contemporary values of its citizens,  a responsible, modern and sustainable city center.

The reconstruction of the downtown area offers a unique opportunity to stimulate the establishment of new activities in the city to diversify the economy. Up to now, many ideas have flourished: a business incubator, shared office space for sole independant workers/business travelers, an expertise center on crisis management or citizens’ engagement, a training/study center on rail security, etc.

New activities will take hold, creating new high skill jobs, attracting new residents and new families.

Lac-Mégantic invites all investors and entrepreneurs to inquire on the new possibilities created by the reconstruction of the downtown area.
