Public Hearings and Council’s Role

Public Hearings are required prior to amending a zoning bylaw or the official community plan bylaw. Public Hearings are typically held on the first and third Mondays of every month as part of the Regular Council Meetings, and are called to order at 7:00 p.m. Click here to view the District of Mission Zoning Bylaw.

The purpose of a Public Hearing is to give all interested persons an opportunity to voice their support or concerns to Mission Council. Items scheduled for Public Hearing are advertised in the Mission City Record, in the News section of the District website, and below on this web page. Development notice signs are placed on the property by the applicant. Notification is also delivered directly to the owners and occupants of surrounding properties.

Members of the public who may be affected by the changes proposed have an opportunity to appear before Council to voice support or opposition to these applications.

During a Public Hearing, Council’s role is to listen and understand what is being said and presented by the public. Mayor and Council do not debate with each other or with members of the public during the Public Hearing. Following a Public Hearing, Council are not permitted to receive more information from members of the public, including any developers or applicants directly related to the hearing.
