New Application Deadline for PRAC Meetings

Section 4.1 of the PRAC By-law and Operating Procedures allows the PRAC to identify and establish the deadline for determining the items to be included on the regular meeting agenda. At the September regular meeting of the PRAC, the Committee passed a motion (Resolution 2018-8-4) to identify and formally establish the PRAC agenda deadline as 4-weeks prior to the scheduled meeting. The updated deadline better accommodates the time required to accept, review, and report on development applications, send and receive agency comments, seek input from the public, and prepare and distribute meeting packages.
