MUNICIPALITY OF THE COUNTY OF ANNAPOLIS
PUBLIC HEARING AGENDA –Bridgetown Water Supply Area MPS LUB
Council Chambers, Municipal Administration Building, Annapolis Royal
11:00 A.M., August 18, 2015
1. Welcoming Remarks – Deputy Warden Timothy Habinski
Format: Council will hold two public hearings. At the end of the second public hearing Council will return to its regular session.
Purpose: The purpose of a Public Hearing is to permit members of the public to make their views known to Council, via oral or written submissions, concerning, solely, the application before Council.
This 1st Public Hearing is to inform the public of Council’s intention to repeal the Bridgetown Water Supply Area Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use By-law. With the opening of a deep well water supply for the community of Bridgetown, planning documents that related to the abandoned surface water supply system, Crosskill and Foster Lakes are now considered unnecessary.
Procedure: all questions and comments throughout the public hearing are required to be addressed to the chair. The chair will afford an opportunity for public input and will ask that persons speaking identify themselves each time so that their comments may be recorded in the minutes of these proceedings and that the person speaking identify if they are speaking in favour or against the application. Written presentations are acknowledged first, followed by public oral presentations. Questions and comments from Council members are asked to be held until all public comment is heard.
