SpacingMontreal recently reported on the city's announcement of a $3 million redevelopment plan for Norman Bethune Square (Rue Guy and Blvd de Maisonneuve)[*]. Unfortunately, as an article in the Gazette pointed out, the transformation will take until 2011 (if one buys the official timeline) which already has local merchants up in arms. Parallels with the recent Blvd St-Laurent upgrade are not very encouraging.

[* Corr 02-Apr-2008] Previously, both SpacingMontreal and our site reported the $22.4 figure for the budget. That sum, however, appears to be allocated for the works covering not only Norman Bethune Square, but also the entire section of Blvd de Maisonneuve between St-Mathieu and Peel streets. According to a city communique, the budget for the Norman Bethune Square sector is $3M.
