City Council has approved proceeding with virtual meetings for Planning and Development Committee (PDC) and Committee of Adjustment, as well as a Library recovery plan. During the pandemic, on April 22, 2020 Council suspended PDC and Committee of Adjustment meetings. Since the closure of City Hall, Planning and Building Department services have remained fully operational, including accepting and processing development and building permit applications with online submission processes including fee payments and scheduling building and site inspections. Public meetings will resume in association with development and Committee of Adjustment applications. PDC meeting notices provide a range of options for residents and businesses to access additional information, including how to contact the city planner and how to provide written comments by mail or email.
Development applications and City-initiated projects that are eligible can be scheduled for a virtual PDC meeting. Virtual PDC meetings will occur in the same format that Council is currently meeting with public engagement through telephone, computer or mobile device. Applicants will be able to present their development proposals to PDC and the public and respond to questions or comments from Council and registered deputants. Information reports will outline resident concerns received up until the report is prepared. Recommendation reports will continue to summarize and respond to resident concerns. PDC meetings will be held in evenings at 6 p.m. The first virtual PDC meeting will be tentatively held on July 13, 2020. Visit the Council and Committees Calendar for updates.
