Public hearing process under review

Public hearing process under review

The City is reviewing the public hearings process and invites your input by July 9.

Public hearings are opportunities for any individual or organization impacted by certain Council or Committee agenda items to provide their opinion directly to Council, and have it included in the public record.

Through the public engagement component, the City is exploring how the system could be more user-friendly and inclusive, and identifying what works well and what prevents people from participating in a public hearing. Online engagement opened June 14 and runs to July 9. The review team will present its findings along with improvement recommendations to Council by year end.
