PlanSJ – Suburbia

During PlanSJ discussions the term ‘urban’ has been used to describe Saint John as a whole — despite the variety of neighbourhoods within it — simply because that’s what differentiates the City of Saint John as an entity from the other outlying municipalities within Greater Saint John.

However, Saint John itself does contain a number of neighbourhoods that most would call ‘suburban’.

These neighbourhoods offer many of the benefits of suburban living combined with relative proximity to the uptown. They also face the same challenges as the rest of Saint John. It’s important when people talk about PlanSJ’s focus on urban living, that these neighbourhoods remain part of the discussion.
