The City of Fredericton is in the process of updating its Union Street Secondary Plan, a component of the Capital City Municipal Plan, which covers the area along Union Street, from the Westmorland Street Bridge overpass to the Nashwaak River, and will be used to guide development in the area in the coming years.
The Union Street Secondary Plan was originally formulated in 1994. As the City continues to grow and develop, a new vision for the neighbourhood is being developed, a vision that is being forged in cooperation with the people who live along the Union Street corridor.
Public consultation played a major role in the process and, last June, residents were invited to comment on the future of their neighbourhood as the first step toward updating the Union Street Secondary Plan. Those comments were collected, considered; and where appropriate, included in the proposed new Union Street Secondary Plan.
The proposed new Union Street Secondary Plan is now available for downloading or reading by clicking on the links provided. Comments from the public on the proposed plan can be made to Council at the Public Hearing, which is scheduled to be set for May 26, 2008.
The Union Street Secondary Plan provides broad guidelines for residential, commercial, and industrial land use; recreation and open space development; as well as transportation, heritage preservation, riverfront development, policing, and other services
