From roads and buildings to wastewater systems – strong asset management is key to building stronger communities. Municipalities of all sizes need tools and resources to make evidence-based decisions that support long-term asset management and build a healthier, safer and more prosperous future for all Canadians.
That is why the Government of Canada is investing $590,510 in 17 New Brunswick communities through the Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP), delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM).
As Canada moves toward a strong recovery, these projects will help communities make data-driven decisions about key infrastructure and ensure long-term infrastructure performance.
With funding from MAMP:
- The City of Edmundston will collect data on the electrical distribution network assets present in the city and the Madawaska Maliseet First Nation and store and manage the asset information digitally with spatial modeling in an Enterprise-GIS system.
- This modeling will help the city to improve management of the electrical distribution network.
- The City of Miramichi will complete condition assessments on the following City owned buildings: Police Station, City Hall mechanical system, Miratech mechanical system, Miramichi Civic Centre roof, Lord Beaverbrook Arena roof, and Loggieville sewer lagoon.
- The Town of Quispamsis will study and assess the condition of outdoor park and recreation assets in the town. The study will provide the town with an asset inventory data standard for outdoor recreation sites, a condition assessment program, replacement cost estimating, useful life estimating, and criticality rating guidelines.
