Say NO to Pharmaprix in Montreal West
The Town of Montreal West is a quiet community of some 5000 people dubbed "The Garden Suburb". It's 1 1/2 block main street Westminster Avenue has been home to family businesses for some 100 years, giving our town it's distinct character. Recently Pharmaprix has purchased the lot at the corner of Sherbrooke and Westminster and the adjacent lot currently belonging to the Medicentre, intending to build a large retail outlet. - a store this large is not in keeping with the character of the town architecturally - a chain store of this size is not in keeping with our town in a community sense - the corner of Westminster and Sherbrooke is already a traffic nightmare with the train tracks, etc. Further traffic problems due to ingress and egress from the Pharmaprix parking area are predictable. - as a large project, with huge potential impact on the town of Montreal West, public consultation should have been essential. We therefore ask the mayor and town councilors to intercede on behalf of the citizens of Montreal West and prohibit Pharmaprix from building a store on this location.
