THE CHAIR WILL CALL THE HEARING TO ORDER:
I would like to acknowledge that we are gathered today on the traditional, ancestral, unceded territory of the syilx/Okanagan people.
This evening, Council will hold both a Public Hearing and a Regular Meeting.
The purpose of the Hearing is to hear from the public on matters contained in the various bylaws which, if adopted, will amend Kelowna 2030 - Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 10500 and Zoning Bylaw No. 8000.
After the close of the Public Hearing, Council will then debate and vote on the proposed bylaws at the Regular Meeting that follows.
Council has been provided with the information, correspondence, petitions or reports that have been received concerning the subject bylaws. This information is available to the public on the table in the foyer of Council Chamber. Reports are also available to the public online under Council at Kelowna.ca.
For those in attendance this evening, or who have already submitted letters to Council, a reminder that this Hearing is open to the public and all representations to Council form part of the public record. A live audio-video feed is being broadcast and recorded on kelowna.ca.
In accordance with Order of the Provincial Health Officer on Gatherings and Events, the City is required to collect the first and last name and telephone number or email address of everyone attending a Council meeting. Thank you for your co-operation.
Following the close of the Public Hearing, no further information from the applicant or members of the public will be accepted by Council.
