Saint John seeks feedback for north end plan

Saint John is seeking feedback as it develops a neighbourhood plan for the city’s north end.

The aim of the plan is to help shape growth and development throughout the north end.

Officials said the first step is to define a boundary of the area and what will be included in the plan.

City staff have worked with two major north end community groups to draft a boundary map.

Officials said several factors were considered when choosing the proposed boundary, such as the amount of land to be included, natural and man-made boundaries, census boundaries, existing neighbourhoods, and important community spaces.

The proposed plan boundary incorporates 6 sub-neighbourhoods: Old North End, Lansdowne, Douglas Avenue/Main Street, Somerset Street/Millidge Avenue, Crescent Valley, and Mount Pleasant. It does not include Millidgeville or Rockwood Park.

It includes the site of the New Brunswick Museum, the new north end school, vacant areas for new residential development, and existing residential areas in decline.

You can have your say on the proposed boundary on the Shape Your City Saint John website until May 6. Feedback and comments can also be submitted in person at the Customer Service Centre in City Hall or via email at yeva.mattson@saintjohn.ca.

Community members will help create the plan to make sure it represents the character of the community and highlights the interests of the public.
