Public Meeting – Proposed Development Charge Changes
August 6 @ 4:00 pm
TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the Township of Douro Dummer will hold a Public Meeting pursuant to the Development Charges Act 1997, on August 6th, 2019 starting at 4:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers, 894 South Street, Warsaw, Ontario.
The purpose of the meeting is to review a background study and proposed by- law prepared by a consultant setting out the calculation of potential new development charges as required under the legislation. The study and By-law are available for review on the Township’s website www.dourodummer.on.ca or at the Municipal Office at 894 South Street, Warsaw.
Pursuant to the legislation the Council of a municipality may impose development charges against land to pay for increased costs required because of increased needs for services arising from development. Development includes re-zonings, new lot creation, condominium approvals and issuance of building permits. The Act imposes restrictions on the types of services and the levels of services for which development charges may be applied.
Any person who attends the public meeting may make representations relating to the proposed By-law.
