Public hearings are an opportunity for people who are affected by projects or proposals to address Spruce Grove City Council. Public hearings are required by the Municipal Government Act as part of the adoption or amendment process for statutory plans and the land use bylaw.
The public and other stakeholders can participate in the public hearing process by speaking in person during the public hearing, or by providing written comments on the subject matter. Written correspondence must be received by the City Clerk by noon on the Wednesday before the public hearing. Any correspondence received after the public hearing cannot be considered by Council, so it is important that concerned parties participate in the public hearing.
Those who choose to speak during the public hearing are given up to 5 minutes to speak.
