Oxford County seeks volunteers for Accessibility Advisory Committee and Land Division Committee

Engaged citizens with a passion for Oxford County and interest in either committee are invited to apply by August 30


Oxford County is looking for citizen volunteers to join the Accessibility Advisory Committee and the Land Division Committee for a term that runs until 2022. Each committee currently has one (1) vacancy for an individual with commitment and passion.

As a committee member, you will provide advice and recommendations to County Council on matters that affect our entire community. It is a great way to share your personal talents and passion for our community, while helping to set strategic direction for the future.

The Accessibility Advisory Committee promotes awareness and sensitivity about accessibility issues for persons with disabilities, and provides input on the County’s Multi-Year Accessibility Plan. The committee is comprised of seven (7) members; six (6) members of the public (the majority of whom shall be persons with a disability) and one (1) County Councillor.

Oxford County’s Land Division Committee is the approval authority for all matters related to the subdivision of land, including plans, consents and exemptions from zoning by-laws. The Land Division Committee is a Council-appointed tribunal, but the committee exercises its authority autonomously and independent of Council. The committee is comprised of seven (7) members, all of which must be residents of Oxford County. No sitting members of County Council or Area Municipal Councils are eligible for appointment to the Land Division Committee.

Residents interested in applying for either committee are asked to submit, in writing or by email, an application including a resume by August 30, 2019, 4:00 p.m. to:

Chloe Senior, Clerk, County of Oxford
P.O. Box 1614, 21 Reeve St.
Woodstock, ON N4S 7Y3
csenior@oxfordcounty.ca
