French term or phrase: 3ème courant de Montpellier
Hello, I'm working on a text about the Viavino wine tourism centre in Pays de Lunel. It includes an interview with a tourist, he is giving his opinion on the centre and he says:

...enfin c’est décapant quoi comme projet. On est quoi ? On est en 2, 3ème courant de Montpellier ? Enfin, il y avait la volonté sur ce territoire de faire, de se battre pour préserver, je dirais, une dimension environnementale, naturelle, etc.

Can anyone explain what 3ème courant is? Thank you!

In this context, "courant" means the third time Montpellier is trying to do something.
The meaning is closed to "third step", but step would mean a goal to reach.
Here it's only different tries at doing soemthing.
It is not a very "courant" way to use this word.
