City moves to restore development charge for affordable housing
from Ottawa Citizen
The city is proposing to restore and slightly increase the portion of development charges that are earmarked for affordable housing. Since the introduction of the 2009 bylaw, the city has collected $189 for every single- and semi-detached home built. The charges are among those collected from developers to pay for things such as roads and transit, and the cost is usually passed on directly to consumers.
