Proposed 2019 Development Charges Background Study Available for Public Comment

The City of Mississauga has released its proposed2019 Development Charges (DC) Background Study for the 60-day statutory public comment period.

The background study, prepared by Hemson Consulting Ltd, is a comprehensive report that includes input received from the public and development stakeholders and presents the proposed 2019 Development Charge rates to be included in the proposed 2019 Development Charges By-law.

The proposed 2019 Development Charges By-law will be available for public comment on April 18, 2019.

“The City charges fees to property developers to help pay for the infrastructure required to support growth, and these are called Development Charges or DC’s,” said Jeff Jackson, Director, Finance and Treasurer. “Without DC’s, the City would have to rely entirely on property taxes or other revenue sources to pay for new fire stations, expanding libraries and community centres and building overpasses and other infrastructure. The funds collected through DC’s ensure the infrastructure required to support growth is paid for primarily by growth.”

In addition to the proposed 2019 Development Charges Background Study, the City is looking for public input on two related studies: the proposed2019 Transportation Background Study prepared by WSP  and the 2019 Stormwater Management Background Study prepared by KSGS Engineering Corp. 

Comments on all three 2019 Development Chargesbackground studies, as well as the proposed 2019Development Charges By-law can be sent tosusan.cunningham@mississauga.ca.

Members of the public are also invited to attend Council on May 8 at 9 a.m. to speak to the draft background studies and 2019 DC By-law. To be placed on the agenda, please complete an online request or contact the City Clerk’s Office through our Citizen Contact Centre at 3-1-1 or 905-615-4311 if outside city limits.

The proposed DC background study and By-law will go to City Council for approval in June.
