Big change in old Montreal Ry ANNE FOTIIERINGHAM MONTREAL (CP) Until roughly 10 years apo. Old Montreal was a derelicl, de- serted area, a haunt [or sail- ors and the site of most of the Port of Montreal's warehous- ing concerns. Claude David, secretary of the Jacques Viger commis- sion, shakes liis head and tells you "it was a far cry indeed from that day in 1C42 when the Sieur de Maisonneuve and his courageous hand of men and women landed there to found one of North America's greatest cilies." "But now the scene has he adds, smiling broadly. Bustling crowds of tourists and pleasure teeters crowd the sidewalks and narrow hleslonc streets on long sum- mer evenings. Haute couture houses, mod boutiques, ait galleries and restaurants featuring fine French cuisine have moved into the area. Some 85 historical buildings In the area have been re- stored and Old Montreal is fast becoming an exclusive place to live. Mr. David explains that much of the new look of Old Montreal, site of the original walled city de Maisonneuve founded, is due to the work of the Jacques Viger commis- sion. This commission, set up in 1062 by the City of Montreal and named after its first mayor, was a direct response to a need to preserve Mont- real's birthplace from the on- slaught of parking lots and warehouses. lie .savs. MUST KEEP STYLE "Due tn the work of the commission. Old Montreal, an area nf some O.i acres border- ing the Montreal waterfront, was declared a historical sile in 1964 by the provincial gov- ernment's historical monu- ments commission He says that while the Viger commission has no powers to enforce restoration, it does en- courage property owners to renovate their buildings in the area to Ilieir original histori- cal apjicaraiicc. As well, all building and repair permits for the area must pass through the commission to en- sure they conform to the Old Montreal style. "The City of Montreal has participated nclively in nur reslorntion y s Mr. David The city rontrihiilinns have Included repnving lljc narroM" streets with cobble- stones find restoring the Recours Market building which now houses somo mu- nicipal departments.

TO STAY These plans Include reno- vating current warehouse buildings on Hie norll) side of the Sfjiinre to bouse offices nnrl boutiques, restoring Ihe original site of the Grey Nuns I convent and persuading the i order to return to the area, j All surface parking will be re- moved to a multi-level park- ing facility on the east side of the square. An old Victorian flrehouse In the centre of the square will remain, flanked on the east by a small canal reminis- cent of the Petite Riviere which was filled in at tlie end of the last century and on the west by a stand of trees planted in the shape of the Canadian Parliament Bulld- inps which stood on that sile from 1044 until 1849 when they burned to the ground by rioters. "The Vouville Stables on the south side of the square have already been restored by private funds and now house offices, art galleries, adds Mr. David. "A committee already I.I Etudying the feasibility of en- couraging the warehousing concerns to move out of the area. "The plans are all ready and could go into effect any- time, but I can't say when. We are waiting for govern- ment subsidies to finance the project and we don't know when they'll come through. "After'all. the 1976 Olym- pics and Terre cles Homines are ahead of us on the list." Payment policy for lots okayed by Tabcr council TABER (HNS) Policies covering the instalment pay- ment for prepaid serviced build- ing lots and for speeding up the process of transfer of land title were approved by the town council recently. The town will now accept 30 cent down payment on the pre serviced lots which represents approximately the price of the land. Tliis policy does not prevent the payment in full at the time the lease-sale agreement is signed. The final payment Is to he made at the time Hie building j crmit is issued, and the trans- Thls procedure also will re- quire interim financing on the part of the town, since payment for services is now delayed until mortgage money is available which, according to a developer at the meeting, is not until new residence "is under roof." At an earlier meeting, coun- cil increased land values by per front foot above as- sessed values (previously S5.00) as a basis for the 1972 general assessment which will proceed this summer. j permit fer will take place on present a- tion of a letter from CMI1C or i other lending institution con- I firming approval of the lious- IlCclllO g approv ing loan. j The existing cancollat Ion!
