A Vision for Moncton's Riverfront
On June 19, 2013, Moncton City Council adopted a motion to appoint a committee and later approved a mandate that would develop a COMPREHENSIVE VISION for Moncton's riverfront.
The committee’s work, once complete, would provide the municipality with a blueprint that would guide it in its development initiatives and decision-making. The committee, made up of citizens, stakeholders and experts was fully constituted on January 20th, 2014 and chaired by Lynn Murray and Pierre Gallant. Councillors Dawn Arnold and Paul Pellerin were also named to the committee and the committee was supported by staff from several areas of the municipality.
"As we rapidly urbanize, it is equally more imperative that we recognize our past connection with the river. This vision is our opportunity to make the riverfront Moncton's signature space."
