City Council, or a delegated authority of Council, makes the decisions on planning proposals. Public consultation is how residents and other stakeholders are informed, consulted and heard before that decision is made. Different methods of public consultation include public hearings, public notification, appeals, public meetings, open houses, surveys or focus groups.
The City is required by provincial law to notify the people who live or own land near a project of upcoming public hearings or of certain decisions by the City related to that project.
Public hearings are also advertised weekly in the City Connection advertisement in the Airdrie CityView publication.
