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
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.
