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.

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.
