Public hearings are an opportunity for people who are affected by projects or proposals to address Town Council. Public hearings are required by the Municipal Government Act as part of the adoption or amendment process for statutory plans and the Land Use Bylaw.
The public and other stakeholders can participate in the public hearing process by speaking in person during the public hearing, or by providing written comments on the subject matter.
For written correspondence to be included in the Council Meeting Agenda, it must be submitted to the City Clerk by 4:30 pm on the Monday before the public hearing. Any correspondence received after the public hearing cannot be considered by Council, so it is important that concerned parties participate during the public hearing.
Public Hearing for Bylaw 937/2019, an amendment to Land Use Bylaw 924/2019
The purpose of the amendment(s) is to permit Secondary and or Garage Suites in the R1A, R1C – Ravines South only and the R4 district. The amending bylaw also addressed Home Occupations on Jasper Court West allowing accessory building at the rear of the lots to accommodate up to two businesses.
At 7:00 p.m. or shortly thereafter on Monday, December 9th, 2019, Council will hold a Public Hearing at the Town of Devon Municipal Office – Council Chambers, 1 Columbia Avenue West, Devon, Alberta, at which time presentations with respect to the proposed bylaw can be made.
