Public Consultation

Bylaws that have a significant effect on citizens, such as:

  • animal or traffic control; 
  • changes to land use;
  • development permits where Council is the development authority;

are typically posted on the Town website and/or heard at a Public Hearing.  Residents are encouraged to provide feedback or participate in Public Hearings to ensure Council receives all perspectives from the public before passing a bylaw or approving a development permit.

Public Hearings are advertised in the local paper and on the Town website.  All area residents directly affected by the proposal are also notified. 

Any person present at a Public Hearing who believes his/her interest is affected by the proposed bylaw or development permit shall be given an opportunity to be heard.  

Public feedback is always welcome and can be provided below.  Please note that any feedback, including letters, emails, or in person, become part of the public record and may be published in a Council agenda package which is posted on the Town website for public viewing.
