Notices of No Public Hearing to be Held
Section 464(2) of the Local Government Act specifies that a Public Hearing on a proposed zoning bylaw is not required to be held where an official community plan is in effect for the area that is the subject of the zoning bylaw and the bylaw is consistent with the official community plan. If a Public Hearing on a proposed zoning bylaw will not be held, a Notice of No Public Hearing to be Held will be published in advance of Council’s consideration of first reading of the bylaw.

Rezoning Public Input Opportunities
It is the RMOW’s practice to offer the opportunity for the public to comment on significant rezoning applications. This opportunity occurs before the bylaws associated with the rezoning proposal are introduced to Council. The public can view materials and provide comments to Planning Department staff that will become part of the public record for the application and will be shared with Council.
There are currently no Rezoning Public Input Opportunities.
