New Participation Procedures for Public Hearings & Meetings

In response to the current COVID-19 public health restrictions, Foothills County has implemented procedural changes and all public hearings and meetings will now be conducted by way of electronic communications.

Foothills County will utilize Zoom video conferencing platform for Council meetings and Public Hearings. The meetings and hearings will be livestreamed and can be viewed via YouTube.

During a public hearing, Council will hear from the applicant and/or agent, from any person who claims to be affected by the proposal or wishes to make representation AND whom Council agrees to hear. A five-minute time limit will be imposed, unless additional time is approved by Council.
