Development Cost Charges Bylaw

The City of Terrace is anticipating adopting a Development Cost Charges (DCC) bylaw in late 2021 that would come into effect and apply to all building permit and subdivision applications after January 1, 2022. The DCC Bylaw received first readings at Council on May 25, 2021.

The City could use DCCs for a variety of upgrades, and several proposed projects have been identified, including northwest Bench parkland acquisition and development, a new Halliwell reservoir, sanitary sewer capacity enhancements, and more. There are a variety of parameters for assessing what portions of a project apply to this program and how much money the City must contribute through other funding sources.
