A more vibrant Main Street is a neighbourhood where people live, walk to work, visit local businesses and invest. The Main Street Urban Design Plan establishes a series of big moves that will frame a bold new vision for Main Street and the surrounding area over the next decade.

The plan’s big moves include

  • transitioning Main Street from a suburban to an urban centre
  • enhancing linkages with adjacent neighbourhoods
  • creating a place where people want to live
  • achieving a unique look and feel
  • becoming the premier commercial business district for the city’s north side.

Fredericton’s Main Street Urban Design Plan was approved by City Council in 2016.
