Public Hearings 

Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, the CVRD will hold all Public Hearings electronically until further notice.

A Public Hearing is the primary means for the public to present their views on proposed amendment bylaws. The Local Government Act requires that a Public Hearing be held before the Board adopts an amendment to an official community plan bylaw, and some amendments to a zoning bylaw. Anyone who considers themselves affected by a proposed amendment bylaw will be afforded a reasonable opportunity to be heard at the Public Hearing, or to submit written comments.
