2013 Development Charges Review
On March 5, 2013, Prince Edward County Council took another step to increase financial sustainability for the Municipality and meet its objective of investment attraction and assessment growth by passing a new Development Charges By-Law. The approval of this new By-Law demonstrates progress as part of Phase 4 of the County’s corporate realignment by improving core business practices.
In response to a 2012 review and a 2013 Background Study, the new Development Charges By-law No. 3205-2013 came into effect on March 6, 2013 - replacing By-law 2149-2008. It will allow the County to continue to collect development charges to pay for a portion of growth-related capital costs for services such as libraries, parks and recreation facilities, fire, police and emergency medical services. This approach reflects the Municipality’s efforts to promote ongoing dialogue between developers, staff and elected officials with the end goal of streamlining and improving the development process in the County.
