Around Town: Open House on Dec. 3 in the Town of Comox Regarding Development Cost Charges Update
The Town of Comox is holding an open house on Thursday, December 3 from 4:00 – 6:00 pm and will provide an update on the proposed development cost charges (DCC) bylaw update. The open house is an opportunity for the public and members of the development industry to review and provide feedback.
In their report, consulting engineers Koers & Associates Engineering Ltd. note that one of the Town’s main objectives in carrying out this update was to review the use of the six land-use categories in the existing DCC Bylaw to ensure the charges are adequate and equitable to the provisions of service necessary to support the growth projected in the OCP. In concert with Town staff, the number of categories has expanded to 14. The new categories include the Downtown Vitalization area which was created in the strategic plan to increase the area’s social and environmental vitality by encouraging mixed-use commercial and residential development.
