Parent page: About Development in Haut-Saint-Laurent
Haut-Saint-Laurent is a beautiful place to be, and a calm area for tourists who want to have some peaceful time. There are, however, areas that still need improvement, and that is why there are many groups and associations that are dedicated to implementing initiatives that are meant to improve Haut-Saint-Laurent. Some of the projects that can help in the development of the area are as follows.
Environmnetal Sustainability Projects
One of the areas that people who are keen on developing Haut-Saint-Laurent can engage in is environmental development projects. These can be in the form of planting trees, advocating for less driving to reduce carbon emission, and the installation of water refill stations, among other conservation projects.
Security is paramount everywhere and is the backbone of development. Many projects can be done to encourage better security. They include installation of security lights, keeping pathways clear so that muggers do not have space to hide, and reworking on old buildings so that the whole area is secure from internal and external attacks.
Improving Public Transport
Public transportation goes a long way in the development of a municipality. They help to prevent traffic jams by reducing the number of vehicles on the streets. They are also a good way of keeping drivers of public vehicles and trains in a job to wake up to, and they also reduce air and noise pollution. Projects that can help improve public transport include the rehabilitation of bus and train stations, cleaning public transport buses and trains, among others. These can be done by volunteering or donating towards the cause.
Many young people are embarking on economic development projects like starting up businesses in Haut-Saint-Laurent. They need the support of different people, and some of the projects that can help them include financial aid, mentorship and workshops and seminars to boost their investments.
