Notice of Public Hearing - 2023/06/05

Participating in the Development Variance Permit / Temporary Use Permit Process

If you would like to participate in the Development Variance Permit / Temporary Use Permit process, we encourage you to register as far in advance of the meeting as possible. A comprehensive list of participation methods is provided below.

  1. Watch the meeting without participating
  2. Write to Council
  3. Use a computer to participate remotely
  4. Use a smart phone or tablet app to participate remotely
  5. Use my phone to participate remotely
  6. Attend in-person

Visit our Agenda and Minutes page.

Please note, you may register to attend the meeting remotely without signing up to speak to an item. The City Clerk’s Office will compile a speakers list for each item. Everyone will be permitted to speak at the verbal input opportunity but those who have registered in advance will be given first opportunity. Once the speakers list has been exhausted, you will be asked to use the raise hand feature to indicate if you would like to speak. For participants using the telephone, the raise hand feature can be activated by dialing *9. For participants using a computer/smart phone/tablet, the raise hand feature can be activated by selecting the raise hand button found in Webinar Controls. For more information on using the raise hand feature, and to see what the feature looks like on the various platforms, please consult this help article at the Zoom support website.

Please also note that there is a short delay between the broadcast of the meeting available at Agenda and Minutes page and the Zoom meeting. It is not advisable to use both methods to view the proceedings at the same time. 

Presentations or submissions must be received by Council before the Public Hearing for that application is concluded as Council is not permitted to receive or consider any further submissions or information after conclusion of an item.

Speaking Tips for remote participants:

  • Limit your comments to the proposed application.
  • You will have 5 minutes to speak.
  • You will be muted when you join the webinar.
  • Make sure that you are in a quiet area with no background noise.
  • Ensure that your device is fully charged and that you have access to a charging station should your device need it.
  • Do not put your phone on speaker phone.
  • If using a computer, it may be better to use a headset with a microphone to talk so that you can be heard.
  • When it is your turn to speak, the Mayor or a member of the City Clerk’s Office will call your name and you will be un-muted.
  • Additional instructions may be given by the Mayor or the City Clerk.

Important Notice

Remote participation will be conducted by Zoom. Zoom can be used via a computer with a microphone, a tablet or smart phone, or by a land line. Zoom is a US based video conferencing solution used extensively by cities and the provincial government. Like most similar programs/software/services, Zoom will collect a limited amount of personal information about you when you register to join the meeting. If you are not comfortable with this collection of personal information, please participate by writing to Council.
