In Charlesbourg, the Maria-Goretti real estate project will be able to move forward. 305 people voted in favor following a referendum, compared to 184 against.

1,023 citizens were eligible to vote, according to the City of Quebec, which revealed the results in the evening. However, only 489 exercised their right to vote, representing a participation rate of 48%.

The vote consisted of approving or rejecting a regulatory modification on the creation of zones allowing different uses, in particular on the number of housing units and the height of buildings.

The project, which has gone through several versions since its beginnings in 2011, will be located largely on the former grounds of the Maria-Goretti church.

In its most recent version, the developer proposes the construction of 36 units in a building varying between three and five floors. To this would also be added 24 two-story townhouses along Trudelle Avenue and Cloutier Boulevard.

After nearly 15 years of discussions, residents of the Trait-Carré district, officially called the 4-5 district, were invited to vote on this regulatory change on June 9 and 16.
