No one knows their community better than the people who live, work and play in the County.

The decisions the County makes impacts the daily lives of people in our municipality. Public participation creates opportunities for individuals with diverse perspectives to come together and share their ideas with staff and elected officials. It's also an opportunity to listen and learn from others and to assist decision-makers as they explore ways to improve plans, programs and services.

The County of Grande Prairie has had a Public Participation Policy in place since 2018, which was updated in 2022. 

The policy outlines when and why public participation may take place so that Council is confident that decisions made are reflective of a range of citizen and stakeholder priorities and interests, and so that service delivery fits the public’s expectations.

The policy was developed after extensive research, staff and council workshops, a public survey, focus groups, and stakeholder interviews.
