Planning Advisory Committee

The Planning Advisory Committee is an appointed Committee of Council consisting of three (3) City Councillors and six (6) local citizens. Their mandate is to exercise such powers and perform such duties relating to community planning as are required by the Community Planning Act or City Council. The Committee is responsible for making recommendations to City Council on land use planning matters including Municipal Plan Amendments, Re-Zoning of property, Zone Amendments and Subdivisions. In addition the Committee acts as the approving authority for the majority of significant variances.
