Wishlist Of Changes Aimed At Improving The Uptown

Better signs pointing to the uptown, incentives for developers, and more promotion for newly-refurbished King Square are just some of the ideas being floated by Uptown Saint John as priorities for 2014; however, there's there's one big ticket item for uptown development according to Mayor Mel Norton.

The Mayor expressed a wish that Uptown Saint John consult with the business community and other groups and determine which uptown street would be best to make into a pedestrian-only thoroughfare, even on a temporary basis. 

Waiting until 2015 would mean an entire season of tourist revenue lost according to the Mayor. Prince William Street is among several possibilities for a car-free zone focused on shopping and dining.
