Tay Township seeks input on draft Development Charges Background Study and By-law

Posted on Monday December 03, 2018

Tay, Ontario: Today, Tay Township released its draft Development Charges Background Study and By-law and is seeking public input on the draft report.

As Tay continues to grow, the Township collects fees from developers to ensure that the cost of providing infrastructure to service new growth is not borne by residents and businesses in the form of higher property taxes. The municipality is required under the Ontario Development Charges Act to update and adopt a new Development Charges Background Study and By-Law at least every five years.

The draft Development Charges Background Study and By-law has been prepared and released for consultation.

Join us at one of two public consultations to learn more and have your say on Tuesday, January 8 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Council Chamber at 450 Park Street in Victoria Harbour. The sessions will begin with a short presentation by the consultant followed by an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback.

A statutory public meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, January 23 at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chamber.

Following the consultation process, Tay Township will release an updated Development Charges Background Study and By-law for consideration at a Special Council meeting in early February 2019.

The draft Development Charges Background Study and By-law is available at tay.ca. For more information and to submit your comments, please contact Joanne Sanders, Director of Finance / Treasurer, at jsanders@tay.ca or 705-534-7248 x226.

Tay Township is committed to delivering responsive and cost-effective municipal services and infrastructure that provide for the long-term economic, social and environmental well-being of its residents and community.
