Advisory Planning Commission
The Advisory Planning Commission is an 8-member committee established by Council. All members of the Commission are members of the public and at least 2/3 must live in Summerland. The Commission reviews applications for amendments to the Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw and also considers matters referred to the Commission by Council. The Commission does not meet on a regular schedule, instead holding meetings when there are items to be considered. All meetings of the Commission are open to the public. Recommendations from the Commission are forwarded to the Development Services Department for inclusion in the staff report to Council on individual development applications.
