Draft Community Standards Bylaw (482.5 KB)

Have your say!

Have your say: public engagement

Public feedback and input into the draft Community Bylaw is a key step to ensuring the draft Community Standards Bylaw meets the community’s needs. You are invited to comment on the draft bylaw in the following two ways:

  1. Survey open from June 6 - 30
  2. Public hearing (opportunity for residents to present their feedback directly to Council).

    The hearing will be scheduled for Fall, 2022 and the date will be shared, once confirmed.

Bylaw topics and themes

The proposed Community Standards Bylaw will cover 13 distinct topics, which we have organized into three themes:

Property standards

  • Nuisance and unsightly properties
  • Storing construction materials and debris
  • Building, yard, fence maintenance
  • Parking on private property
  • Graffiti

Public spaces

Yellow car exhaust

This theme groups environmental concern topics:

  • Noise
  • Wood-burning appliances and nuisance smoke
  • Littering
  • Idling

Community safety

  • Charity bins and collection sites
  • Clearing disabled persons' parking stalls
  • Sidewalk clearing
  • Symbols of hate

Next steps

In fall 2022, Administration will present a report to Council outlining the public engagement results. Council will consider whether to proceed with the Community Standards Bylaw or invite more opportunities for community engagement.
