The elected officials of the municipality adopted a loan regulation for the expansion of the industrial zone located in the Dolbo sector, on Monday, during the municipal council meeting held in the evening.
The loan list of more than $1.6 million will provide financing for construction and financial costs related to the project and the acquisition of land in the sector at a cost of approximately $400,000 for the implementation of the development project, which will include two phases.
On Monday, the municipal council also authorized the sale of a plot of land in this sector, on Niké Street, to the Pavage régional company.
The project will provide some land, which will recover part of the investment. The development of the sector will then evolve according to demand.
Dolbeau-Mistassini also has a large-scale development project for its industrial complex on Boulevard Pollian, in the Mistassini sector, which is currently being analyzed.
This does not mean that the industrial complex of the Mystacini sector has fallen behind, but rather that at the moment it does not meet the needs of some companies.Kristen Suvago, communications and community relations consultant, said in writing after the board meeting.
A register will be made available on April 20 and 21 for citizens who wish to call for a referendum on the project to develop the industrial zone on La Frêche Street.
Chancellor Remy Russo explained that a total of 1,005 signatures were needed to force the municipality to hold a referendum during the session, which was streamed online.
