Have a penchant for planning and missed out on applying for the “citizen member” positions on the Town’s boards and committees previously?

The Town is accepting applications for an open seat on the Committee of Adjustment for a term lasting until December 31, 2022.

What is the Committee of Adjustment?

The Committee of Adjustment is comprised of five citizens appointed by Council to consider applications for minor variances to zoning by-laws and applications for consent (severances). The Committee of Adjustment is a quasi-judicial body, similar to an informal court that operates under the Planning Act, the Statutory Powers Procedure Act and various provincial regulations. The Committee operates independently from the Town Council.

Applicants must meet the basic criteria as below:

And not fall under one of these “no you cannot” categories under Ontario law…

  • any person who is not eligible to vote in the municipality
  • an employee of a municipality who has not taken an unpaid leave of absence and resigned (see above)
  • a judge of any court
  • an MP, an MPP or a senator
  • an inmate serving a sentence in a penal or correctional institution

Interested and fit the criteria? You can apply online until May 29, 2020 at:
