The City of Saint John advises community groups that the City’s Land for Public Purpose (LPP) Trust Fund is available to help financially support community-led recreation projects on public lands. Funding is available to community groups within the City of Saint John whose new project aims to develop a public space for recreational enjoyment and use.
The Land for Public Purpose policy has recently been updated after presentations to Growth Committee and Common Council. The funding limit at both the community and neighbourhood levels has increased to make the fund more responsive to the needs of the community. Clarification was also provided to allow for public lands to be used for LPP projects where appropriate.
Applications are now processed annually and must be submitted by May 30, 2022.
