Events Guide: Putting PlanSJ on Paper

SAINT JOHN – In early 2010, the City launched PlanSJ to create a new Growth Strategy and to develop a new Municipal Plan to guide development over the next 25 years. We profiled the launch of PlanSJ here.

Now that the Growth Strategy [PDF] has been unanimously endorsed by Council – ‘where do we want to go as a city’ – it’s time to help develop Municipal Plan policies – ‘how do we get there’. PlanSJ is hosting an open house workshop today, Putting the Plan on Paper.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Urban and Suburban Residential Opportunity Areas
  • Rural Areas
  • Economy
  • Transportation & Infrastructure
  • Environment
  • Community Facilities, Parks & Recreation
  • Arts, Culture, Heritage & Urban Design
  • Implementation and Monitoring of the Plan

The findings from this workshop will help advise the draft municipal plan scheduled to be unveiled this summer.

Citizen engagement has been a priority for the PlanSJ team from the beginning. Let’s not miss another chance to voice our opinion on what we want the city to be. See you there!
