April 15, 2020 PAC: Reports/Pkg / Agenda ​​


[PAC Calendar]

    The Planning Advisory Committee (PAC) is an appointed Committee of Council and is comprised of three Councillors and six local citizens. The mandate of PAC is to perform necessary duties relating to community planning, as required by the Community Planning Act or City Council.

    This committee’s duties include making recommendations to City Council on land use planning matters including Municipal Plan Amendments, rezoning of property, zone amendments, and subdivisions. In addition, the committee acts as the approving authority for the majority of significant variances.

    To make an application, you must first meet with staff, complete the required application, and pay the appropriate fee. If interested, contact the Community Planning Division or watch our informational videos on the City's YouTube Channel.

    PAC Meetings (Calendar)

    Regular meetings of PAC are held on the third Wednesday of every month, except in December when the regular monthly meeting may be held on the second Wednesday. The meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. in City Hall Council Chamber, and is open to all members of the public.

    If you have comments regarding a specific application, please forward a written submission to the PAC secretary before the PAC meeting date. Any responses made to the city automatically become part of the public record and are therefore subject to viewing by anyone who so requests. As it is not unusual for applications to be withdrawn or deferred, please call Community Planning by 4:00 p.m. on the date of the meeting to confirm that the application is still on the agenda.

    PAC Package/Reports

    The Community Planning Division will make PAC packages available on Friday afternoon before each meeting. (If Friday is a holiday, then the packages will be available on the Thursday before the PAC meeting)
