The City of St. Johns is midway through one of the most
important things we'll see come out of city hall for many years -
the new municipal plan. This is a Big Deal. The plan sets out the
overall vision for how the city will grow and develop for years to
come. The new plan,
Envision St. John's, has a lot to say about a new vision for
the city: one full of mixed-use, walkable neighbourhoods, solid
transit links, and thriving green spaces.
The municipal plan is a big document - 75 pages - and has a lot to
say about how the city is going to evolve. To help you make sense
of it, our amazing summer student, Taylor, assembled a handy 5-page
set of highlights. Want to see what the key themes, strategies, and
actions are in the draft of the new plan?
This isn't the end of the plan process, though! After
doing a bunch of stakeholder consultations at the beginning, the
City is coming back to YOU, the citizens, for input on the draft.
This is a critical time, and we encourage all of you to give our
document, and the plan itself, a good read.
Want to provide input on what you think of the draft?
