FORÊT JOLICŒUR-MCMARTIN Community Zoom Meeting / Réunion communautaire Zoom - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Would it be possible to link up the NCC land on the east side of hwy 5 with this new proposed ACRE property or will there be a gap?
Very informative meeting.Q: Can you define "Perpetual conservation" - legally speaking? Ie: What if ACRE - at some point in the future - ceases to exist?
That is the long-term plan. The short-term plan is to acquire this property
There is a dissolution clause in the ACRE bylaws that if ACRE no longer exists in the future, the land would transfer to another land trust
We are hosting a meeting next week on bylaws and governance and land trusts if you are interested...
What sort of commitment is make to supporting all types of recreational use? Hike, walk, bike, ski, etc? It is important that this property remains accessible to all of these modes, not just hike, walk, ski.

Looking forward to pledging and helping with this. 2 quick questions: Have these lots already been approved for development? Is there currently a pause on subdividing outside of the municipal cores in Quebec?
Merci ACRE, Stephen, Olaf, Pierre, Carrie and others… Great presentation and great work in making this opportunity possible. Our family commits support this effort and to donate, or should I say “invest”, to help make this a reality and a success story for our community, our children, and for nature.

Thank you , Merci , from the bottom of our hearts ACRE Stephen, Olaf and everyone ! We look forward to supporting this beautiful initiative!
If it would help, I’m happy to explain the background to the Council decision.
In that same vein as Mary, what if you have say 750k in pledges and are successful at (as Olaf the optimist eluded to) raising more $$ than needed in grants, how would that be handled?- Too much money; a good problem to have!
How many homes have potential pledgers for this project.
Another excellent project by ACRE, and I thank Steven, Olaf and all of the others involved. I am excited to support this initiative, and pledge my support!
I probably missed that part : where would go the money raised by selling the 5 lots ?
The funding from the 1% of the sale would go to ACRE - to our Stewardship Endowment Fund
Merci a ACRE et les benevoles. A quoi correspond plus precisement/ exactement le 150K pour les taxes, frais et fond de dotation?
Nous devrons payer le GST et QST (bien que la moitié du montant puisse être remboursée) et le taxe de Bienvenue. GST et QST est $120K et le taxe de Bienvenue est $20K (approximative)
Est-ce qu'on a demandé à la mairie de faire cadeau de la taxe de bienvenue?
Oui :) nous avons étamé les discussions
why limit yourself to only the households that are impacted. All of Chelsea will benefit
Is the end of June deadline firm? What if not enough funds are raised by then, can it be extended another X months?
End of June is the date specified in our Promise to Purchase
Thank you to M. McMartin for all the years of generous access across his land.
RE: donation , for my personal info and to share with people who might ask as we ask for pledges, will you let us know how to explain donating stocks vs cash.
It would be a very attractive incentive for potential donors if ACRE would share and promote the details of the tax benefit. Right from the get go of these meetings. I know about tax credits for cultural property and everyone perks up when you tell them the benefit right from the start!! $$$$ speak.
Here's the calculator I used:https://www.redcross.ca/donate/donation-tax-credit-calculator#data/donated5000/provinceQC
Thanks for all the clarifications on donations. I'm thinking that the new property owners in Larrimac Highlands should be made aware of the opportunities to invest in this opportunity by donating!
The recording will be posted on your website?
Thanks Heather - others in the community have been reaching out to our new neighbours :)
Thanks for the great initiative. I will spread the word.
Thank you !
I received many messages from neighbours who tried to get on the call.
Where will the recording be posted?.
Many thanks - great initiative!
Merci! Thank you
What email should be used to make a pledge
Can you also share the power point?
thanks so much!
Thank you for the information tonight! We look forward to pledging/donating and following the progress of this important initiative.
Call Olaf anytime 827-1681
Thank you for this great initiative!
Belle initiative et bonne soirée d'information. Merci! Je suis heureuse de voir que ce projet est centré sur un corridor écologique. Ces espaces naturels sont essentiels.
