DCC Bylaw Adoption Soon

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DCC Bylaw Adoption Soon

The City of West Kelowna is nearing completion of a Development Cost Charge (DCC) Bylaw review process which has been underway since 2013. As a result of the review, the City is proposing adoption of a new DCC Bylaw, slated for the June 28, 2016 Council meeting.

DCCs are fees implemented at the time of development which are meant to help municipalities recover the costs of infrastructure needed for growth. The DCC Bylaw includes Roads, Sewer, Storm, Water and Parks DCCs for different types of development including residential, commercial, industrial, carriage homes, golf courses and playgrounds.

Development Cost Charge Bylaw No. 190, 2015, if adopted on June 28 will come into effect immediately for new applications that are not considered in-stream in accordance with the Local Government Act.

In-stream applications for subdivision, zoning amendment, development permit or building permit, have one year from the date of adoption of the new bylaw to complete development under the City’s current bylaws. Completion means DCCs paid in full at the time of final subdivision approval for single-family development as well as building permit issuance for a number of uses. Applicants may choose to proceed under the new bylaw if agreed in writing that Bylaw No. 190, 2015 should have effect. In order to have a new subdivision, zoning amendment, development permit or building permit application considered under the existing bylaws, and therefore considered in-stream, a complete application will need to be received on or before June 28.

The DCC Bylaw also applies to construction, alterations or extensions valued greater than $75,000 or land uses where DCCs are payable at building permit.

Additional information about the DCC review process, bylaws and the DCC 20-Year program can be found on the City’s website at www.westkelownacity.ca/DCC.
