Delegation & Community Spotlight Requests

Delegations and Community Spotlights on all subject matters within Council's jurisdiction are welcomed at the City of Langley.  Delegations or community spotlights are presentations to Council by a member of the public or an organization for the purpose of highlighting topics of municipal interest or concern.  

Delegation is a term used to define the process whereby an individual, group, or organization appears before Langley City Council to make a request of Council, monetary or otherwise.

Community Spotlight is a term used to define the process whereby an individual, group, or organization appears before Langley City Council to provide information or updates on an event or activities.

To appear as a Delegation or Community Spotlight a letter must be written or form completed and sent to the Corporate Officer, requesting to appear as a delegation or community spotlight, and outlining in general terms the subject matter. Click here to download and fill out the pdf fillable form. On receipt of the letter or form, the Administration Department will advise you as to the date and time for your delegation to be heard by City Council.

Please ensure your request is received by the Corporate Officer by Noon on the Wednesday prior to the scheduled Council Meeting, at the very latest, as there is a limit of 3 Delegations and 2 Community Spotlights which can be heard at any Regular Council Meeting.

Regardless of the number of people in your delegation or the number of topics you wish to cover, the delegation as a whole is permitted 5 minutes to make its submission to Council, and Community Spotlights are permitted 10 minutes. If you have written material that you wish to provide to Council prior to the meeting, please forward it to the Administration Department by noon on the Tuesday prior to your scheduled appearance.

Participants may join the Public Hearing Webinar using a smartphone, a tablet or a computer with speakers and a microphone. 

NOTE: It is recommended that you use Chrome, Internet Explorer or Edge as your Internet browser when joining the meeting.  Some users have had issues trying to connect to Zoom Webinar using Safari.  If you use Safari as your Internet browser we recommend changing your browser to one of the three listed above prior to joining the Zoom Webinar.

You will need to provide your first name, last name, email address, and city of residence. You do not need to have a Zoom account to participate in the electronic Public Hearing; however, you will be required to install “Zoom Client” on your device when prompted to do so in order to join the meeting. 

Please note that this is a public meeting and will be livestreamed via YouTube and recorded and posted to the City's website. Each speaker will be asked to provide their name and the street (not house number) and the municipality in which they live. This information will form part of the public record. 

Participants who wish to speak at the Public Hearing may use the “raise hand” function in the webinar to indicate their wish to speak.  This will automatically place the speaker in a queue. Participants will be invited to speak in the order in which they raised their hands.  Each speaker may speak for a maximum of five minutes for each time the “raised hand” function is used.  Participants will be muted until it is their turn to speak. Staff will then prompt the speaker to un-mute and they can begin speaking.  Speakers will only have audio enabled, so only the speaker’s name will be shown unless a profile picture has been uploaded by the speaker through Zoom.
