About Riverview & Town Hall
The Town of Riverview is the local government authority responsible for planning and delivering municipal services in Riverview -- a Canadian urban community of nearly 20,000 people. Riverview is located in the south-east region of New Brunswick.
Like all local governments in Canada, the Town is granted its powers by the provincial government. The legal framework and foundation is set out in provincial legislation within the New Brunswick Municipal Government Act.
The Town provides the community's essential services - clean water, garbage collection, sewer systems, roads and sidewalks, traffic and pedestrian crossing lights, fire and rescue services, parks and trails and recreational facilities such as sports fields, the arena, a splash park and two swimming pools. It also shapes the community through policies and land use planning, responding to the community's needs and planning for a sustainable future. Council has authority to pass by-laws that regulate such issues as land use, collecting certain taxes, approving expenditures, taking on debts, giving grants, animal control, parking restrictions and more.
The Town of Riverview was formed on July 9, 1973 with the amalgamation of the three villages of Bridgedale, Gunningsville and Riverview Heights. Harold Findlay became the town's first Mayor and seven Councillors were elected at-large to serve the public.
Since that time, Riverview has grown to include 19,130 residents represented by four Ward Councillors and three Councillors-at Large.
Riverview Town Hall is located at 30 Honour House Court at the end of Fatima Drive, off Buckingham Avenue in Riverview, New Brunswick, Canada. We are open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Several muncipal departments have their offices at Town Hall, where you'll also find council chambers, a payment counter and the Riverview Public Library. Riverview Town Hall is fully-accessible with ample handicap parking spaces, automatic doors and an elevator.
Departments located outside of Town Hall are Riverview's Parks and Recreation (55 Biggs Drive), Engineering and Public Works (445 Pine Glen Road), Fire and Rescue (650 Pinewood Road) and Urban Planning (655 Main Street, Moncton).
Meeting room facilities are available to book for non-profit organizations.
