What is a Public Hearing?

Public Hearings provide an opportunity for members of the public to speak to Council on proposed planning and development matters.

How do I obtain information on scheduled items?

When items are scheduled for public hearing, copies of a proposed bylaw can be viewed in the Council meeting agenda package, on or after the Wednesday prior to the Council meeting:

Where are Public Hearings held?

Council Meetings are held in Council Chambers, in County Hall, 2001 Sherwood Drive, Sherwood Park, Alberta. Members of the public are welcome to attend and observe.

How do I register to speak?

We encourage anyone interested in speaking at a Public Hearing to register by emailing or calling 780-464-8105 by 4:00 p.m. the day before the hearing (please provide your full name, the bylaw number, and indicate if you are in favour or opposed). Please note that public hearings, including presentations made by speakers, are recorded. The meetings are made available for viewing on the County’s public website and the names of presenters along with a brief description of their position is included in the minutes. All written submissions for public hearings are made available for public viewing.

You may also register to speak in person at the public hearing; however, anyone registered prior to the hearing will be heard first. Presentation time is limited to five minutes per speaker. Written submissions are also accepted for Public Hearings and will be distributed to all of Council.
