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.

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.
