Council Adoption Process

The New Brunswick Community Planning Act sets out the process that Common Council must follow to adopt the new Municipal Plan.

On October 11, 2011, Council announced its intention to consider adopting the Municipal Plan. This initiated a 30-day public comment period where the community can respond in writing to the Common Clerk.

Following that 30 days, Council will refer the Municipal Plan to the Planning Advisory Committee for review and recommendations and then schedule and advertise a Public Hearing of the Municipal Plan.

We encourage you to stay involved in the PlanSJ process and participate in the upcoming Public Hearing where you can speak directly to Council about the new Municipal Plan. It will be held in early December.

The final stage in the Council adoption process will be for Council to give first, second and third official readings to the Municipal Plan.

Please contact us for more details on the Municipal Plan adoption schedule.

Ways to STAY Engaged The new Municipal Plan is only the beginning for community planning in Saint John! Development of a Strategic Plan for Parks and Recreation is underway. Stay tuned for opportunities to get involved.

Following the adoption of the Municipal Plan by Council, the Community Planning Service will continue to work with and involve the community in drafting:
