Smart Growth

Planning for complete communities within our city.

Our History 

View our timeline to see how Fredericton’s community planning practices have evolved over time and embraced Smart Growth as a strategy that is good for community members and the environment.

Current Initiatives 

The Fredericton Municipal Plan provides a vision for the future that will shape growth and build a more successful city. The Plan details community priorities and a future vision for the City’s form as we experience demographic shifts and population growth over the coming decades.

What You Can Do 

Think about your lifestyle and how it impacts the environment, including how you live and move around the city. Think about the things you would like to see in your community (both publicly and privately owned) to improve the environment and your quality of life and that of your family and neighbours. Take part in community meetings and provide input. Keep an eye on our website for new community plans and consultation processes.
