Take Notice that on Tuesday, February 16th, 2021 at 8:15 p.m. the Council of the Township of South-West Oxford will hold a public meeting pursuant to the Development Charges Act, 1997, regarding proposed development charge rates and policies that will be applied throughout the Township.

It is proposed that enactment of a development charges by-law by Council will occur on a date subsequent to the public meeting. Development charges are levied against new development, and are a primary source of funding for development-related capital expenditures.

The Development Charges Background Study relates to the provision of all eligible DC Services (ie. Fire, Parks and Recreation, Roads). Council is required under The Development Charges Act, 1997, to hold at least one public meeting to allow the public the opportunity to review and provide comments on the Development Charges Background Study, related staff reports and the proposed development charges by-law. All interested parties are invited to attend the public meeting.

Any person may attend the public meeting and make written or verbal representation either in support of or in opposition to the by-law. Written submissions are invited and should be directed to Julie Forth, Clerk, no later than 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 11th, 2021. Written comments received prior to the meeting and submissions made at the public meeting will be considered by Council prior to the enactment of a new development charges by-law.

Technical inquiries should be directed to Treasurer Diane Larder, or phone 519-485-0477 ext. 7024.
