Updated Municipal Plan More Accommodating To Airport's Future Needs

The new municipal plan now contains flexibility for the Saint John Airport regarding future business development on airport land.

The Saint John Airport had fears that the new municipal plan would pigeon-hole it to only aeronautical-type development.

PlanSJ's Jacqueline Hamilton says some of the language has been reworked to give the airport more options.
She says if an opportunity arose, the airport would have to submit a business case and an updated land use plan that doesn't conflict with the overall vision of the municipal plan.
