The Town of Newmarket has enacted a Development Charges bylaw. These charges are indexed as per the Statistics Canada Quarterly, Construction Price Statistics.
Municipalities in Ontario use Development Charges (DCs) to recover certain costs that can be associated with residential and non-residential growth. The Development Charges Act is the statutory basis which permits these recoveries. It also sets out that municipalities are required to update their DC by-laws and rates every five years.
The Town has commenced its 2014 DC by-law update process as its by-laws will expire on August 31. As required by the Act, a background study must be prepared by the Town to determine the amount of the charge that will be associated with new development.
The Town welcomes input during the preparation of the study. The proposed schedule for the DC review and approval is:
