Name Your New Municipality

The votes are in!!  Over half of respondents voted for Carleton North for the community name, and District was chosen by the Advisory Committee for the descriptor.  Therefore, the District of Carleton North has been submitted to the province for consideration for Entity 76’s new name.  Thank you to those who participated in naming our new municipality!

WHAT IS A RURAL COMMUNITY?

A Rural Community is an incorporated body of LSD’s and municipalities with an elected mayor and council.  There are many reasons to want a Rural Community, such as:

  • If you value rural living and want to protect it

  • The status quo for communities is not sustainable

  • To create our own path and control decisions for our future

  • To strengthen local representation

PROJECT IS ON HOLD PENDING THE PROVINCE'S MUNICIPAL REFORM INITIATIVE, WHICH MAY SUPERSEDE OUR PROPOSAL

The Local Service District (LSD) of Aberdeen, Glassville, Kent, Upper Kent, Wicklow, Wilmot, Lakeville, Peel, Simonds, and the Councils of the Town of Florenceville-Bristol and the Villages of Bath and Centreville have expressed interest in conducting an initial assessment with the assistance of the New Brunswick Department of Environment and Local Government to determine the public interest and feasibility of creating its own Rural Community to provide local services.
