Committee of Adjustment meetings are now being recorded!
In my first term, I directed staff to consider the feasibility of recording Committee of Adjustment panels to improve transparency and accountability. In November 2015, city staff brought forward a positive report recommending the purchase and installation of a storage and recording device.
The device has now been installed and tested at City Hall, and audio-visual recording of all Committee of Adjustment meetings began on May 1, 2016.
Staff also reported this month that live streaming of the panels will be possible as of July 1, 2016 – this means that you can follow the meetings right from your own home!
You can read the full report to the May meeting of the Planning & Growth Management Committee here.
