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 Town of Devon's Planning & Development Officer by 4:30 p.m. on the Tuesday 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.
