PR: Pierrefonds-Roxboro reinvents its defining identity with the Connexion Project



It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that the borough of Pierrefonds-Roxboro unveils to the population the results of the first stage of the Connexion project, which will lead to the eventual development of the defining identity of Pierrefonds-Roxboro, which will be in the central sector of the borough (known as Îlot Saint-Jean).


The results presented are the sum of a great collaborative, creative and inclusive approach that began in 2020, and that involved the citizens of the community, as well as the employees and elected officials of the borough, leading to the concerted elaboration of a strategic vision for 2020-25 of Pierrefonds-Roxboro's future defining identity.


"I am extremely pleased with the results of this participatory process, which not only demonstrates our borough's willingness to pursue development efforts in all areas of activity but more importantly, it shows that we are taking care to hear the opinions, ideas, and concerns of our citizens, in addition to considering what is beneficial to them. This collaborative step was essential to the development of a representative and meaningful strategic vision, as we present today. This connexion project will certainly distinguish Pierrefonds-Roxboro as a living environment in the years to come, by creating a unique, unifying, dynamic and human-scale destination! The kick-off of this strategic vision includes the construction of the Aquatic and Recreational Complex and a public square," said Pierrefonds-Roxboro Borough Mayor, Dimitrios (Jim) Beis.


Defining identity


The particular geography of the borough establishes the "central sector" as an important junction point between its western and eastern parts. Considered as the "defining identity " of Pierrefonds-Roxboro, the Îlot Saint-Jean benefits from a strategic location regrouping residential, commercial, and institutional functions.


The sector has significant potential for development, to become a living space adapted to the entire population of the borough, according to the principles of sustainable development.
