Public Meeting for Residents of College Hill / Southwood Park / Skyline Acres

The City of Fredericton is seeking input from residents of the College Hill / Skyline Acres / Southwood Park area of the city at a public open house to determine the feasibility of constructing a roundabout on Route 8 near College Hill Road. The roundabout would enable a direct connection between College Hill Road, Route 7 and Route 8, including the Dr Everett Chalmers Hospital and the Universities.

The meeting will be held Wednesday February 20th at the Liverpool Street School, 50 Liverpool Street, from 6:00-7:30pm.

The meeting, hosted by Councillors Kate Rogers (Ward 11 - East Downtown & Plat/UNB), Kevin Darrah (Ward 7 – Southwood Park/Lincoln) and Greg Ericson (Ward 8 - Skyline Acres), will explore how residents currently access the College Hill/University area and seek feedback on future access if the College Hill Roundabout and potential pedestrian connection through Reading Park were constructed.

The potential College Hill Roundabout is one of three feasibility studies approved for funding from a successful application made by the City, to the 2018 Municipalities for Climate Innovation Fund from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) for the feasibility and preliminary design of transportation projects that aim to reduce GHG emissions.

City Engineering Services staff will also be on hand to answer questions and receive public feedback. Public input from the meeting will form the basis of further discussion around the future plan and its development.

The City looks forward to exploring your thoughts at this important session. For more information, contact the City Clerk’s Office at 506-460-2857 or cityclerk@fredericton.ca.
