Pursuant to the Municipal Government Act, the Town of Didsbury must hold a Public Hearing before Council when amending a Statutory Plan or Land Use Bylaw of the Town. The purpose of a Public Hearing is to provide members of the public an opportunity to address Council before a decision is made. At this Public Hearing, members of the public are provided the opportunity to address Council with their concerns or their support of the application.
Public Hearings are advertised in the local newspaper and on the Town’s website for a period of two consecutive weeks prior to the Public Hearing. They are held as part of regular Council meetings, which take place every second and fourth Tuesday of the month.
If you plan to attend a public hearing and wish to speak:
- Please ensure your presentation is organized and to the point. Time for presentations is limited to five minutes (additional time may be considered)
- Council may ask you questions regarding your presentation
- Once you have made your presentation and closing remarks, you will not have another opportunity to address Council, unless you are asked a direct question
