Development Charges Review - 2019

South Frontenac’s current Development Charges By-law is set to expire on September 2nd, 2019, on August 6, 2019 Council passed By-law 2019-48 which is now in effect. 

Development charges are how municipalities help cover costs from roads to fire stations to libraries.  The purpose of development charges is to recover the growth-related costs of capital infrastructure needed to service new development and redevelopment in the municipality. 

Legislation requires a full background study be prepared to justify development charges fees.  The background study was released on May 31st, 2019 and will be available for 60 days before Council considers the new by-law.

Below is a link to the background study prepared by Watson & Associates on behalf of South Frontenac.
