Moncton Adds New Land & Residents

By Allan Dearing Jan 18, 2023 | 5:43 AM

The City of Moncton annexed 10 square kilometres of land on January 1, as part of the province’s local governance reforms.

The land in the western end of the city includes portions of Berry Mills and Lutes Mountain with about 650 residents and a combined tax base of almost $116 million.

On Monday, Moncton City Council voted to support bylaws and the municipal plan which will cover the new addition.

Staff told Council that most homes are already connected to municipal water and sewer systems.

City planner Josh Adams said the area is now being administered by the city for planning and building inspections.

“People have the peace of mind to know that they can continue doing their business. But if ever they want to expand in the future, they have the ability to do so as long as they follow the regulations that are in place.”

City manager Marc Landry said once current contracts end, the city will formally take over services.

“We’re just making sure the residents always have services in those areas. Solid waste or waste pickup would be a good example.”

The city will hold a public presentation on February 6 following by a public hearing which is tentatively scheduled for March 20.
