Based on a geographic area of the city, a Community Council's responsibilities include making recommendations and decisions on local planning and development, as well as neighbourhood matters including traffic plans and parking regulations. Community Councils report to City Council but they also have final decision-making power on certain items, such as fence by-law exemptions, some traffic and parking matters and appointments to local boards and Business Improvement Areas.
