What We Heard Report - Phase III

Public Engagement Sessions

Two public engagement sessions were hosted in March 2019 and these sessions were intended to gather feedback on the proposed list of exemptions that the City would like to include in the cosmetic herbicide restriction motion, previously passed by the City Council in June 2015. This motion needs to be updated to ensure operational and regulatory alignment with the updated Integrated Pest Management Policy C501A.

Edmontonians were invited to review the proposed exemptions and provide their feedback, advice or suggestions on how to align the motion with the policy to ensure operational effectiveness and efficiency.
