Public notice

For several years, advertisements for Planning and Development Advisory Committee (PDAC) meetings have been posted in the Fitzhugh. PDAC is a public advisory committee appointed by Parks Canada and the Municipality of Jasper to advise the Park Superintendent on planning and development issues in Jasper National Park, including applications for discretionary land use, applications for variances, permit appeals, and rezoning applications.

As of June 2019, advertisements for PDAC hearings will no longer be posted in the Fitzhugh. Meetings will continue to be held on a monthly basis and advertisements will be posted in the lobby of the Parks Canada Administration Building, situated in the Jasper Heritage Railway Station at 607 Connaught Drive, Jasper. Lessees of neighbouring properties within 45m of the property with a pending PDAC application will continue to be notified of an upcoming hearing via regular mail.

Advertisements for Development Permits and future PDAC meetings will continue to be announced on this website.
