LONGUEUIL – Residents came out in droves to Longueuil’s city council meeting Tuesday night in defence of Greenfield Park and Saint-Hubert’s “visual identity.”
The city has been updating residential signs throughout its neighbourhoods on the South Shore.
Residents started noticing that their borough names were being removed in favour of signs that simple say “Longueuil.”
They pleaded their case to Longueuil mayor Caroline St-Hilaire in the hopes of finding a compromise; about 1,400 residents signed a petition to have their borough names put back.
Residents argued Longueuil should think twice about removing any traces of its historical neighbourhoods.
