Fredericton Roads and Streets Masterplan – 2009

Infrastructure masterplans are at the backboneof a community’s capital spending plan. While not addressing every possible outcome or required project, the process of considering a masterplan identifies many of the “big-ticket” items that are on the spending horizon for the community. Often these masterplans are written by consultants, for many reasons, political, staff availability, expertise, but in the case of Fredericton, NB, the Director of Engineering and Public Works wrote this document himself. Although Fredericton is much larger than most of the communities around here, the format, headings and methodology are useful for considering how to write a similar document for any community.

It is a shame that this was not available on the web, and as it was presented in a council meeting, it is public information, so, I’m posting it here. Report via Heather McLaughlin from the DailyGleener.

  1. It amazes me that reports like this do not make their way to the front page of a municipal website – this is a clear response to the ever present call from residents that a plan is needed and it needs to be transparent. Thanks for posting this.
