The CALUC is a volunteer committee that researches community opinion on land use in our neighbourhood. The CALUC helps our neighbours engage in community planning by providing opportunities and processes to collect and forward residents’ comments to City Council. The CALUC reviews a variety of development applications & proposals for rezoning in the Fairfield and Gonzales areas, and hears and records public input on these matters.  The CALUC has no decision-making authority over proposed developments, and all decisions are made by the city.  Residents may also provide input by writing to City Council, attending Council meetings, as well as talking to City councillors.  Community Meeting General Info.

Making CALUC meetings more accessible for all community members

FGCA has run its CALUC meetings successfully throughout the COVID pandemic. We recently heard from community members that they would like more options to participate, especially those who can’t make the scheduled times (7:00pm) because of childcare and other commitments. To increase access we now record the meetings, make the recordings available online, and invite input via email. 


Past Meetings

We are happy to receive emails on any proposal, at any time, at planandzone@fairfieldcommunity.ca and we will include all such emails with our report to the City on the Community Meeting.
