Passing of new Development Charge By-law by the City of Barrie

The City of Barrie passed Development Charge By-law Number 2014-108 on August 25th, 2014. The By-law establishes municipal wide and area specific development charges for the City. The new development charges imposed under the by-law, according to the City, are required to pay for the increased capital costs related to the increased need for municipal services arising from development in the City of Barrie. The by-law contains several service categories, some of which serve all of the lands in the City of Barrie and some of which serve only the Salem and Hewitt?s Secondary Plan Areas, or the former City of Barrie municipal boundary areas. Appeals to the Ontario Municipal Board must be filed by Monday October 6th, 2014.
