Tallard is home to the Tallard version of the Gap-TallardDurance urban community's 2018 local housing program (PLH). Mayor Daniel Borel stated that an additional 175 housing units will be built over the PLH's duration, which is equivalent to 29 housing units per calendar year. This PLH is in addition to the existing urban plan, which is currently being revised. It also includes the operation of renovation and fighting against vacancy in the housing under Small town of Tomorrow.
The municipality has applied for the eco-district designation. It will be in the La Garenne area and it will be part of the Small town of Tomorrow. Daniel Borel says that if our application is approved, a charter with 20 construction criteria will be required. Jean-Michel Arnaud adds that this project is a municipal will. It prefigures Tallard's image in 2030-2040. He summarizes, "It's more than a label. It's a process." After several stages of construction, 140 housing units could be built. It wants to attract middle class residents and will find a promoter to help it do so.
The city's elected officials launched a pre-operational study OPAH (programmed operation for improving housing) to reduce housing vacancies. This is included in the local urban planning's population goals. Jean-Michel Arnaud comments that "about fifty homes should have been renovated and put back on to the market".
Municipal councilor and the latter took advantage of the discussions to remind that Tallard is the second Agglo city. She must remain with us beyond the master plan for the planned housing renovation operations. We can't do essential projects for the entire population by ourselves. I'd like to see us contract with the Agglo," concludes the elected official.
