WATCH ABOVE: The City of Longueuil has launched an interactive map designed to make the community safer. As Felicia Parrillo reports, the plan stems from the brutal murder of Jenique Dalcourt last year.

LONGUEUIL – Florence Jackson is a longtime resident of Longueuil.

She lives just a block away from a local bicycle path, and she said she doesn’t always feel safe.

She believes the path needs more lighting and until that happens, she won’t travel on it at night.

    One 20-year-old told Global News that she only walks through the bike path during the day and when she sees other people nearby.

    To reassure the public, the City of Longueuil is asking residents to pinpoint areas that need improvement through an online interactive map.

    From better lighting, to improving surveillance or even new traffic lights, all residents have to do is insert their name and suggest any of upgrades.

    According to Jacques Tétrault, Governing Council for Longueuil, the map will be on the city’s website until Sept. 27.

    The city will then analyze each identified site and roll out an action plan to make the necessary changes by October.
