A message from the Mayor – Understanding our past, planning for the future

Published on April 4, 2019

Did you know that, prior to the arrival of Yarntex/Filtex in 1955, the area bound by Pine, Principale, du Dépôt and the train station, was full of businesses and lodgings and was considered the liveliest neighbourhood in the village?

The evolution of our built heritage in the former railway square, the history of the textile industry on the site and the testimony of many former workers, are all contained in a fascinating report produced by Héritage Sutton.

The research project was financed by the Town of Sutton and the Brome-Missisquoi Pacte rural 2018. The objective is to provide information about the neighbourhood’s past that will help when we come together to reflect on its future. You can find this fascinating report by clicking here (in French only) or a copy can be consulted at the Town Hall during usual business hours.

I will provide updates to citizens regarding the demolition of the buildings as soon as new information becomes available.

Michel Lafrance, Mayor of Sutton

Enhancing our landscapes – participatory mapping activity

Published on March 27, 2019

The MRC has mandated Mille lieux to proceed with the characterization of the Brome-Missisquoi Regional County’s landscapes.  More specifically, the project will

  • Undertake the characterization of landscape dynamics over the Brome-Missisquoi territory;
  • Identify the main territorial dynamics and issues;
  • Develop recommendations and concrete intervention actions to ensure the preservation and the enhancement of Brome-Missisquoi’s landscapes.

This would then make it possible for the MRC to ensure the conservation and the enhancement of the landscapes by using the Regional Development Plan, by implementing cultural and tourism projects that locals will become involved with.

It is essential that citizens and those involved with the territory value our landscapes.

Activity : participatory mapping : TOWN OF SUTTON

It would very useful if each citizen completed the map now available at the Cantine, located at 32 North Principale Street.  Using the supplied pencil, you share with others the names of places which are not necessarily known by everyone and which have not been documented on official or tourism maps.

Objectives of this activity :

  • To highlight the importance of these places which are not officially known by citizens;
  • To discover new areas of belonging;
  • To locate landscapes that the population value;
  • To highlight informal names that the citizens use.

The activity ends April 15th, 2019
