Two hundred years of planning in Fredericton
MetadataShow full item record
Fredericton, a city which now has a population of 47,000, was established as the capital of New Brunswick in 1785. A surveyor named Dugald Campbell had considerable vision: working in the 1780s, he set aside land along the riverfront as green space, and established a pattern of development based on a street-grid. Several unrelated occurrences have recently provided the City of Fredericton with a unique opportunity to build upon the planning legacy established by Campbell.
