Public Hearings

public hearings about proposed bylaws

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Langley will be holding Public Hearings electronically by Zoom Webinar until further notice.

Information on upcoming Public Hearings can be found below.

October 5, 2020 at 7pm
Bylaw 3131 - Discharge Land Use Contract No. 23-73 at 20093 44 Avenue to allow a secondary suite.

Submitting Input for the Public Hearing

Anyone who believes their interests are affected by the proposed bylaw may submit input in writing and/or attend the electronic meeting to provide verbal input. Written input may be submitted by email to pkusack@langleycity.ca or by regular mail to the Deputy Corporate Officer, c/o Langley City Hall, 20399 Douglas Crescent, Langley, B.C. V3A 4B3 and must be received by no later than 12:00 pm on the day of the Public Hearing.  All correspondence submitted by the deadline will form part of the public record and may be published in a meeting agenda.  Personal information other than the name and residential address (street and municipality only) will be severed from the correspondence prior to publishing.

Interested parties may also register to attend the electronic Public Hearing and participate in the Zoom Webinar.  Registration is required in order to participate in the meeting.  Anyone who is uncertain of their ability to participate electronically is encouraged to send in their submission in writing before the deadline to ensure their submission is received.  The Public Hearing will also be livestreamed on YouTube to enable those who wish to view the Public Hearing without participating.

Participants may join the Public Hearing Webinar using a smartphone, a tablet or a computer with speakers and a microphone. 

NOTE: It is recommended that you use Chrome, Internet Explorer or Edge as your Internet browser when joining the meeting.  Some users have had issues trying to connect to Zoom Webinar using Safari.  If you use Safari as your Internet browser we recommend changing your browser to one of the three listed above prior to joining the Zoom Webinar.

You will need to provide your first name, last name, email address, and city of residence. You do not need to have a Zoom account to participate in the electronic Public Hearing; however, you will be required to install “Zoom Client” on your device when prompted to do so in order to join the meeting. 

Please note that this is a public meeting and will be livestreamed via YouTube and recorded and posted to the City's website. Each speaker will be asked to provide their name and the street (not house number) and municipality in which they live. This information will form part of the public record. 

Participants who wish to speak at the Public Hearing may use the “raise hand” function in the webinar to indicate their wish to speak.  This will automatically place the speaker in a queue. Participants will be invited to speak in the order in which they raised their hands.  Each speaker may speak for a maximum of five minutes for each time the “raised hand” function is used.  Participants will be muted until it is their turn to speak. Staff will then prompt the speaker to un-mute and they can begin speaking.  Speakers will only have audio enabled, so only the speaker’s name will be shown unless a profile picture has been uploaded by the speaker through Zoom.
