Next Steps - Updated June 28, 2022

  • The proposed amendments will be presented to Council for consideration of first reading on July 5, 2022. 
  • If Council chooses to give first reading to the bylaws, it signals that they would like to formally hear from the public on the application and a public hearing would be scheduled.
  • At the public hearing, members of the public would have an opportunity to provide their feedback directly to Council on the proposed bylaws.
  • Council would then consider second and third reading of the bylaws.
  • If Council defeats the bylaws at any point in this process, then the existing rules remain in place.
