Temporary Public Spaces : Westmount all-out in the summer!

Context

The City of Westmount is reimagining some spaces this summer to enliven local arteries and increase the number of convivial public areas. The temporary installations will all be in place until the fall of 2022 or until further notice. These projects allow the City of Westmount to respond to the diverse needs of the community while trying out some planning ideas to bring us closer to a human-scale city.
