Fredericton city committee approves NBCC project

October 23, 2009

The City of Fredericton's planning advisory committee has approved the subdivision of University of New Brunswick land to create a building lot for the new New Brunswick Community College campus. Set to open by fall 2011, the $15-million, 49,000-square-foot building will accommodate 400 students. A citizen member of the committee suggests UNB and the city start talking about the shortage of parking on campus. Although UNB is trying to preserve green space, one city official says, construction on campus has made the school recognize the need to address parking concerns. Daily Gleaner
