I am humbled by the mandate I have been given for the next four years. I want to thank our residents for the trust you have placed in me. Your new Council combines members with years of experience with the fresh energy and ideas of a new member. I look forward to working with my colleagues on your behalf. We have been elected to work with and for our residents.
The Village of New Maryland has a population of approximately 4,500 and is located on the southern border of Fredericton, New Brunswick’s Capital City. We have been incorporated since 1991. In 1993 a new school was built in our community. Today the school hosts children from K to grade 5 and we are very fortunate to have such dedicated teachers. Our fire department just celebrated their 10th year anniversary. Under the leadership of our Fire Chief and many volunteers they provide an excellent service to our Village.
Our fine residents and outstanding community spirit make New Maryland a very special place to live.

Acadian flag raising event at Victoria Hall, August 15, 2018 at 11 am
National Acadian Day was established to celebrate Acadian culture and was first recognized in 1881 when the National Convention of the Acadians set the date Aug. 15 as National Acadian Day.
In support of the Acadian community and in recognition of French Acadians living in the Village of New Maryland, we raise the Acadian flag today to celebrate the culture and heritage of the Acadian people.
In honour and respect of those who lost their lives in the August 10, 2018 shooting tragedy in Fredericton, we lowered the Acadian flag to half mast until sunset on Saturday, August 18, 2018.
Happy Acadian Day everyone!
Expression of Gratitude to former PAC member Stephen Conn – July 18, 2018 Formal Council meeting
On behalf of Council, staff and the Planning Advisory Committee, I was pleased to welcome former Planning Advisory Committee member Stephen Conn to the meeting so that we could express our sincere gratitude for Stephen’s past contributions to PAC for over 20 years.
As a resident of Sunrise Estates subdivision, Stephen is a UNB graduate with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Forestry, majoring in Resource Management.
Stephen dedicated his entire career, until his recent retirement, as an employee of the NB Department of Natural Resources as a resource and facilities management planner and as a long-time member of the Association of Registered Professional Foresters of New Brunswick.
Stephen’s tenure on PAC spanned between September 1997 and June 2018. The committee benefitted greatly from Stephen’s wealth of knowledge and experience during his more than 20 years of membership. The importance Stephen places on engagement in the community is also evidenced through 15 years as a former leader in the local Scouting movement.
On behalf of Council, staff and his former colleagues on PAC, I would like to thank Stephen for his years of dedicated service. I also wish to acknowledge his contributions to the betterment of the Village through his valued input on land use, development and planning matters during his tenure on the committee. The Village is very fortunate to have residents like Stephen who demonstrate such a high level of engagement in their community. Stephen was presented with a small token of sincere appreciation.
