Public Hearing Process

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the City's desire to keep our community safe, we will be soliciting comments for Public Hearings from the public that feel their interest in property is affected by an application in three ways – through written submissions, by telephone or in person. To watch the Public Hearing, please view the live stream on the City’s website. 

Safeguarding public health is our top priority. The City encourages participation through written submissions and telephone to reduce risk of COVID-19 transmission. 

In light of provincial limitations on gatherings, the City respectfully requests that only one person per household or organization attend in person as capacity in the Community Centre is limited due to physical distancing requirements. Despite this request, the City will not restrict more than one person from each household or organization from attending in person.
