Inscription.

L'année 2014 marque le trente-cinquième anniversaire de l'Association internationale des maires francophones, créée en 1979 à l'initiative conjointe des maires de Paris et de Québec, messieurs Jacques Chirac et Jean Pelletier. À cette occasion, la Ville de Québec rend hommage à celui qui fut maire de Québec de 1977 à 1989.

Plusieurs réalisations jalonnent le passage de Jean Pelletier (1935-2009) à la mairie, notamment la création au centre-ville de la bibliothèque Gabrielle-Roy, en 1983. On lui doit aussi l'ouverture de la gare intermodale en 1985 et la revialisation du tout le secteur de la gare du Palais. C'est également grâce à la vision et aux efforts du maire Pelletier que le Vieux-Québec est inscrit sur la Liste du patrimoine mondial de l'Unesco, une reconnaissance internationale de la valeur exceptionnelle de cet ensemble urbain.
