Presenting to the Public Presentation Committee

The members of the Public Presentation Committee are County Councillors, but the meetings are not Council meetings, and Council decisions are not made.

Meetings are held to provide groups/individuals the opportunity to present information and share their vision with the Committee, NOT to ask for advice on what should be done on a specific property.

If you would like to bring a matter to the Committee’s attention, that does not require a decision of Council, you can apply to make a presentation.

Examples of presentations that will be accepted by the Committee include those from:

  • Developers and/or landowners submitting their vision for a future project that will not a require a Council decision;
  • Not-for-profit organizations outlining their work in the community, or about recognition for special volunteers;
  • Post-secondary institutions or research groups presenting studies or surveys that might interest the County;
  • Resident or community groups sharing future plans or current activities that the groups are involved in; or
  • Businesses or organizations wanting to apprise Committee members of projects or initiatives that will not require a Council decision.

Examples of presentations that will not be accepted by the Committee include:

  • The subject matter of the presentation is related to an active application from the presenter or the presenter intends to submit an application within six months of the presentation date;
  • The subject matter of the presentation is outside of the authority or jurisdiction of Rocky View County;
  • The subject matter of the presentation is more appropriate for a different committee, board, commission, or other body; or
  • Individuals or groups wishing to provide technical, legal, or similar information when they possess no relevant qualifications or expertise.

Presentations are strictly limited to 20 minutes, but Committee members may ask questions afterwards.
