The City of Miramichi has consistently recognized the value of our two distinct Downtown cores. Each offers a uniqueness that makes this City a vibrant and personable community for residents and visitors alike.
In July of 2018 the City of Miramichi engaged Trace Planning & Design to develop the plan that would lead the growth of the Downtowns over the next 25 years.
The documents presented on this site are the result of almost 18 months of community consultations, council reviews and staff input. They present an exciting and vibrant vision for both the Newcastle Business District and the Historic Chatham Business District. A vision that can position the Downtowns as well as the City of Miramichi as a growth destination for not only businesses and but also residents.
This plan includes guidelines for potential development projects that are focused on our rich and vibrant history but look towards an equally rich future. Included in the documents are ideas and visions that can motivate and guide municipal development on both public and private properties over the next 25 years while simultaneously addressing issues like climate change mitigation and increased residential density.
Please bear in mind that this is your plan. Developed using your ideas and the ideas of your friends and neighbours.
Together we can make it happen… together we can make a difference!
