Public Hearings

Public Hearings are required according to the Local Government Act to allow the public to make representations to Council regarding municipal official community plans, zoning amendment bylaws and or an early termination of a land use contract bylaw.

For all Public Hearings, each speaker must commence remarks by clearly stating your name and address.

Procedural rules for the conduct of the Public Hearings are set at the start of the Public Hearing. Council will consider your comments but will not be answering questions, or entering into a debate.

Your final opportunity to comment on the proposed Bylaw is during the Public Hearing, as Council is not permitted to receive further submissions once it has closed the Public Hearing. All submissions will form part of the public record.
