Developer cash for day cares, art facilities dries up as Vancouver pushes for 'community benefits'
from Globe and Mail
New daycares, neighbourhood houses and arts facilities in Vancouver that were built as part of rezoning projects used to benefit from a special kind of developer contribution: cash to help cover some of the cost of their operations. But four years ago, the province issued new guidelines for such payments, known as community-amenity contributions. Before the change, when land was rezoned, developers offered payments or assets to provide additional services to areas seeing big population increases.
