City seeking input on draft Municipal Plan
After more than a year of public engagement the City of Fredericton has released the draft of its new Municipal Plan for public input.
The City says the document defines a dynamic vision for Fredericton that supports a diverse and growing city and is intended to guide the city's development for the next 25 years.
Mayor Mike O'Brien says, "Not only is [the new Municipal Plan] one of the largest community engagement processes we have undertaken, but it also has all the ingredients needed to create a city all our residents can enjoy well into the future."
The plan is divided into four key sections: a vision for the future, shaping growth, building a successful city and implementation.
According to a press release, the Plan recognizes the nine Community Goals in the Fredericton Growth Strategy, which are:
- Welcoming and Supportive
- Strong and Diverse Economy
- Culturally Rich and Diverse
- Complete Neighbourhoods and Distinctive Places
- Vibrant Downtown and Riverfront
- Complete Transportation System
- Safe and Inviting Public Realm
- Green and Healthy
- Sustainable and Efficient
Once the public input has been received, the draft plan will go to City Council in August to begin the formal adoption process.
According to the release, the deadline for input is Thursday July 25.
