Moncton is Growing.
The prospect of a new multi-use sports and entertainment centre in downtown Moncton has been a centerpiece of civic discussions in Moncton for the last several years. The focus on a multi-use sports and entertainment complex was also motivated by successful projects elsewhere in Canada in cities with similar characteristics to the Moncton market, including London, Kingston, Sault-Ste-Marie, Kelowna, Saint John and Halifax. All have used their downtown arenas to anchor a thriving downtown city core
Land Development, Construction, Development Control
The Urban Planning Department manages the growth and physical form of the city. The Department plays an important role in leading and guiding all functions related to land use planning and development, including developing land use plans, policies and by-laws and by managing the approval processes for development applications.
MAIN SERVICE AREAS:
Development Control ensures that all properties are developed and used according to the City’s Municipal Plan, Zoning By-law, and other applicable by-laws and regulations. This function is integrated into the City’s “One Stop Shop for Building, Planning and Development Services” to ensure a customer focused approach to all building, planning and development applications. Development Control generally focuses on:
Providing advice and guidance on planning and development applications;
Process Development Permit approvals to ensure that all development complies with the Municipal Plan, Zoning By-law and other municipal requirements; and
Respond to public zoning inquiries, including issuing Zoning Confirmation and Compliance Letters.
The Development Planning facilitates the orderly use and development of property in accordance with the City’s approved policies, by-laws, and development standards. Planning staff work with Engineering and other city departments to provide a customer-focused service that takes a proactive approach to application review, sound community planning, and well constructed infrastructure. The Development Planning division activities include:
Administering the City of Moncton’s Municipal Plan, Zoning By-law, Subdivision By-law, and Controlled Access By-laws;
Reviewing and processing rezoning applications which involve amending the Municipal Plan and Zoning By-law;
Reviewing and processing Planning Advisory Committee (PAC) applications which involve variance, terms & conditions, rulings of compatibility, non-conforming uses, and temporary uses;
Providing land use planning advice to individuals, businesses, government agencies and other associations involved with preparing development proposals;
Coordinating a weekly Development Review service with Engineering and Environmental Services Department and other departments to review preliminary development proposals and provide pre-application advice to developers;
Conducting site plan reviews on proposed development for compliance with Municipal Plan and Zoning By-law and other municipal requirements; and
Responding to development and site selection inquiries.
The Subdivision Approval function focuses on ensuring an orderly approach to land development. It generally involves dividing land into smaller parcels in order to legally register separate ownership titles with the Land Titles office. Many of the subdivisions that the city deals with create new building lots, streets and land for public purposes. The Urban Planning Department coordinates the application process and facilitates a Development Review process with Engineering and Environmental Services, Parks, Recreation and Culture, Legal Services and other city departments and government agencies to ensure that all applications comply with the City’s Municipal Plan, Zoning By-law, Subdivision By-law, and other applicable policies and regulations.
Long Range Policy Planning
Long Range Policy Planning works to balance the environmental, social, and economic needs of the city as means to achieve the City’s vision of a livable, sustainable and prosperous community. To ensure development takes place in a rational manner, the Long Range Policy Planning division is involved in a wide range of activities such as:
Managing and implementing the City’s Municipal Plan, including growth management and planning for downtown and existing neighbourhoods;
Preparing and reviewing Neighbourhood Plans;
Preparing and reviewing Secondary Land Use Plans;
Developing of Urban Design Policies and Guidelines;
Conducting housing research and policy development;
Preparing Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Plans;
Compiling and analyzing data on population projections, neighbourhood profiles, commercial and industrial land inventories, and other data.
The division also serves as a resource and assists other departments with Environmental, Economic and Industrial Development, Recreation, Downtown, Heritage, and Sustainable Transportation Planning.
Staging Your Home
7 Tips for Staging Your Home
The first step to getting buyers to make an offer on your home is to impress them with its appearance so they begin to envision themselves living there. Here are seven tips for making your home look bigger, brighter, and more desirable.
1. Start with a Clean Slate
Before you can worry about where to place furniture and which wall hanging should go where, each room in your home must be spotless. Do a thorough cleaning right down to the nitpicky details like wiping down light switch covers. Deep clean and deodorize carpets and window coverings.
2. Stow Away Your Clutter
It’s harder for buyers to picture themselves in your home when they’re looking at your family photos, collectibles, and knickknacks. Pack up all your personal decorations. However, don’t make spaces like mantles and coffee and end tables barren. Leave three items of varying heights on each surface for example, place a lamp, a small plant, and a book on an end table.
3. Scale Back on Your Furniture
When a room is packed with furniture, it looks smaller, which will make buyers think your home is less valuable than it is. Make sure buyers appreciate the size of each room by removing one or two pieces of furniture. If you have an eat-in dining area, using a small table and chair set makes the area seem bigger.
4. Rethink Your Furniture Placement
Highlight the flow of your rooms by arranging the furniture to guide buyers from one room to another. In each room, create a focal point on the farthest wall from the doorway and arrange the other pieces of furniture in a triangle around the focal point. In the bedroom, the bed should be the focal point. In the living room, it may be the fireplace, and your couch and sofa can form the triangle in front of it.
5. Add Color To Brighten Your Rooms
Brush on a fresh coat of warm, neutral-color paint in each room. Ask your real estate agent for help choosing the right shade. Then accessorize. Adding a vibrant afghan, throw, or accent pillows for the couch will jazz up a muted living room, as will a healthy plant or a bright vase on your mantle. High-wattage bulbs in your light fixtures will also brighten up rooms and basements.
6. Set the Scene
Lay logs in the fireplace, and set your dining room table with dishes and a centerpiece of fresh fruit or flowers. Create other vignettes throughout the home — such as a chess game in progress — to help buyers envision living there. Replace heavy curtains with sheer ones that let in more light.
Make your bathrooms feel luxurious by adding a new shower curtain, towels, and fancy guest soaps (after you put all your personal toiletry items are out of sight). Judiciously add subtle potpourri, scented candles, or boil water with a bit of vanilla mixed in. If you have pets, clean bedding frequently and spray an odor remover before each showing.
7. Make the Entrance Grand
Mow your lawn and trim your hedges, and turn on the sprinklers for 30 minutes before showings to make your lawn sparkle. If flowers or plants don’t surround your home’s entrance, add a pot of bright flowers. Top it all off by buying a new doormat and adding a seasonal wreath to your front door
