This strip of land between the fence of Mount Hermon Cemetery and roadway of Côte de Sillery was sold to the Ville de Québec, which is undertaking a major upgrading project to improve the look of this historic area and traffic flow at the top of the hill. In return the cemetery will get a brand-new fence.

Under an agreement signed this spring between Mount Hermon Cemetery and the Ville de Québec, ownership of a narrow strip of land along Côte de Sillery outside the cemetery fence was transferred to the municipality.

The Ville de Québec is currently undertaking Phase 1 of a two-year project, which includes work on the hill from Église Saint-Michel to chemin Saint-Louis.
