This week, Tecumseh Town Council will host a Special Council Meeting to discuss Development Charges. Development charges are the fees levied on land development projects to offset the costs borne by the Town to accommodate their growth. The agenda can be found here.
The presentation to be given to Town Council can be found here.
Discussion will include the various factors that are included in development charges as well as the new Community Benefits Charge to support soft services proposed to be offered to new residents.
A further Public Meeting is proposed to be scheduled for July 9th once a framework for development charges is published.
In addition, Watson and Associates has published a letter to the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing detailing comments and ambiguities inherent in the new legislation. The letter can be found here.
