Can I rephrase the label « Petite cité de caractère » for Sainte-Croix?

During the meeting on September 19, 2023, the Municipal Council gathered at the Town Hall to discuss and make decisions on significant matters concerning the community.

Indeed, as part of the adoption of the future intermunicipal local urban development plan, the municipal councils were required to express their opinion on the currently finalized project by the intermunicipal authority. The elected officials voted against the current project (8 votes against / 4 votes in favor). Furthermore, the municipal councils were asked to provide their opinion on the Local Housing Program project (a document that constitutes the tool for defining and implementing the intermunicipal housing policy).

Pour la commune de Sainte-Croix, en raison du caractère global et général de ce document, il en a résulté un vote d’approbation. (11 voix pour / 1 abstention).
