Advisory Planning Commission

Advisory Planning Commission


The Advisory Planning Commission (APC) is an advisory committee that makes recommendations to City Council respecting land use issues in the City and is empowered by the Advisory Planning Commission Bylaw and the Provincial Local Government Act.

The majority of items presented to the APC involve applications to amend the Official Community Plan and/or Zoning Bylaw and applications for the issuance of Development Variance Permits.

Who are the members of the APC?

There are nine Voting Members of the Advisory Planning Commission:
  • Six Members At Large appointed by City Council
  • One  representative of the School Board of School District No. 70
  • One representative of the Tseshaht First Nation
  • One representative of the Hupacasath First Nation

Four Non-Voting Liaisons complete the APC: 

  1. City Council Liaison
  2. RCMP Liaison
  3. Port Alberni Fire Department Liaison
  4. Parks and Recreation Liaison.

Also see the APC Orientation Package .  

APC Meetings    

The APC typically meets once a month on the 3rd Thursday at 12:00 p.m. at the City Hall Committee Room.  Agenda’s are sent out to each member before the scheduled meeting. Meetings are open to the public and agenda’s are posted on the Bulletin Board in the Lobby at City Hall at least 24hrs before each meeting.  Meetings may be cancelled or rescheduled by the Commission so it is wise to confirm the date, time and location when planning to attend.
