Community Association Land Use Committees

The Role of the Community Association

Community Association Land Use Committees (CALUC) are an important part of the land use application process. One of the main roles of the CALUC is to facilitate the dialogue between applicants and the community in order to identify and resolve issues (both positive and negative) regarding land use applications. Applicants are required to contact the applicable CALUC representative to initiate this process.

The procedures for processing rezoning and variance applications require that the CALUC host a Community Meeting on all proposed Rezoning applications in order to ensure the community is notified about proposed land use applications. This process is detailed below.

City staff and the CALUC representatives will be pleased to assist with any questions.

Rezoning and Official Community Plan Amendment Process

This process involves three main steps. For ease of understanding, this process is displayed in three stages below.

Pre-application Process

Prior to the City accepting an application for rezoning or Official Community Plan Amendment, the proponent must present the proposal at a Community Meeting. The following diagram illustrates the pre-application process.

Application Submission and Review Process

After the Community Meeting, the proponent can submit an application to the City. Once a complete application is accepted, the review process begins. The following diagram illustrates the review process.

Council Deliberations 

The following diagram illustrates the process for Council consideration of an application.
