The Local Government Act requires that a Public Hearing be held before Council adopts an amendment to the Zoning Bylaw (referred to as a rezoning application) or Official Community Plan Bylaw. Public Hearings are chaired by the Mayor or Acting Mayor and held to provide the public with an opportunity to convey their views on proposed land use amendments.
Public Hearings are advertised in the local newspaper and online prior to the scheduled Public Hearing. In most instances, Public Notices are also mailed to owners and occupants of surrounding properties (within 100 metres of the land that is the subject of the application) and signs are posted on the subject property at least ten days prior to the scheduled Public Hearing.
The Town of Oliver conducts Public Hearings three ways – in person, with written submissions or via telephone.
To watch the Public Hearing and follow along the agenda, please view the live stream on the Town’s website.
Until further notice, Public Hearings will be held virtually. Members of the public may attend by Zoom video conference.
