From City Hall: Development Charges Bylaw Updated

Should developers be paying a larger share of the City’s costs to create new facilities and infrastructure needed to meet the needs of the growing population? I believe the answer is a clear “Yes,” and the new development charges by-law approved by council in October provides for a 75% increase in the amount developers contribute to projects required to support the population growth they create.

I am also pushing aggressively to make sure our area, which is experiencing extreme growth, receives its fair share of the development charges that are collected.
