Development Charges Study

2019 Development Charges Study - Public Meeting

Take notice that the Council of the Township of Zorra will hold a public meeting pursuant to The Development Charges Act, 1997, as amended, to present and obtain public input on the Township’s proposed development charges (D.C.) by-law and underlying background study.  It is proposed that enactment of a development charges by-law by Council would occur on a date subsequent to the public meeting.

Development charges are levied against new development, and are a primary source of funding for growth-related capital expenditures.

Council is required under The Development Charges Act, 1997, as amended, to hold at least one public meeting to allow the public the opportunity to review and provide comments on the 2019 Development Charges Background Study, related staff reports and the proposed development charges by-law.
