Last Tuesday, a citizen consultation on the future of St. Peter’s Church was held. Nearly one hundred residents attended to learn about the structural issues that led to the building’s sale by the Anglican Diocese to Sajo, a Mount Royal company.
The citizens were then divided into five groups to discuss possible avenues for redeveloping the site, and several ideas emerged from these discussions. Residents were interested in the future use of the site, the architectural elements worth preserving, the acceptable densification of the space, and the possible ways of honouring the Church’s memory.
Their suggestions and points of view have been noted and will be compiled in a document that will help guide the Town Council’s decision concerning the future of the building and its land, which occupy a special place in the Town of Mount Royal’s heart.
