Envision St. John's Draft Municipal Plan, 2014
Envision St. John’s Municipal Plan is the City’s principal planning document. The Plan sets out a vision for the City that reflects input gathered from extensive public consultations. Goals, strategic objectives, and policies support the vision and will help guide the City’s growth and development over the next decade. Development in the City was first guided by a Zoning By-Law adopted in 1955. The City’s first municipal plan was approved under the Urban and Rural Planning Act in 1984. The Plan has undergone previous reviews, most recently in 2003, and has been subject to numerous amendments since its adoption. Envision St. John’s, prepared as a result of a comprehensive review, will replace the current St. John’s Municipal Plan (2003).
