Once the ARP is submitted to the Town of Banff, Banff Town Council will consider First Reading for the Banff Railway Lands ARP. Town Administration will speak to the submission and answer questions from Council. If First Reading is approved, Council will set a date for a Public Hearing.
The Public Hearing is an opportunity for Council to hear directly from the community, businesses, residents, administration and Liricon. Technical experts are on hand to answer any questions Council may have.
Once the public hearing is concluded, a date for Second Reading is set for further discussion by Council only. Council may elect to make amendments to the ARP at this stage or ask questions of Town Administration for follow up at Third Reading.
If Second Reading is approved, Council then schedules a Third Reading for final consideration and discussion, and ultimately a vote to decide whether to move approve the ARP or not. This Council decision is decided by majority vote.
