Tug of Wards Winner Announced. Congratulations Ward 7!

Tug of Wards Challenge Winner Announced

Mayor Mike O’Brien announced the winner of the Imagine Fredericton “Tug of Wards” challenge today to members of the City’s Development Committee.  Residents of Ward 7 – Southwood Park / Lincoln, completed the highest percentage of Community Compass surveys related to the proposed Imagine Fredericton Growth Scenarios, and will enjoy a springtime community barbeque courtesy of Mayor O’Brien and Ward 7 Councillor Kevin Darrah.

“What a great way to engage our community!  We’re extremely happy with the input our residents offered,” said Mayor O’Brien. “We look forward to working with the Imagine Fredericton team in developing the Municipal Growth Strategy and Municipal Plan that will guide Fredericton’s development over the next 25 years.”

The three Growth Scenarios were first presented by the Imagine Fredericton Team during a public open house at the Fredericton Convention Centre in early February.  Public input provided from the consultation process and the “Tug of Wards” Challenge will be used to inform the new Municipal Growth Strategy that will define where future population and employment growth in Fredericton will be targeted over the next 25 years.
