Proposed Area Specific Development Charges - Simpson Road

Posted on Friday May 22, 2020

What is an Area-Specific Development Charges Background Study?

This background study has been prepared pursuant to the requirements of the Development Charges Act (DCA),1997 (s10), which among others, stipulates that before passing a Development Charge by-law, the council shall complete a Development Charge (DC) background study.

This Area Specific Development Charges (A.S.D.C.) Background Study for the Town of Caledon is presented as part of a process that will lead to the approval of a new Area Specific Development Charges By-law for:

  • Simpson Road - 221m north of George Bolton Parkway to be imposed within a defined area of the South Simpson Industrial Secondary Plan area. According to the plan, Simpson Road shall serve as a north-south collector and extended southward to intersect with Mayfield Road. See location map for details.
  • This project is not included in the Town’s municipal-wide Development Charges (D.C.) By-law, as this Minor Collector Road is a local service:
    • Minor Collector Roads Internal or External to Development, inclusive of all land and associated infrastructure, if needed to support a specific development or required to link with the area to which the plan relates –direct developer responsibility under s.59 of the Development Charges Act (DCA)
  • This project is a smaller segment of road, involves only two benefiting landowners (four parcels of land currently owned by two landowners). This means the proposed A.S.D.C. will only be charged on four parcels of land when they are developed in the future.

This A.S.D.C. background study, containing the proposed A.S.D.C. by-law, is being distributed to members of the public, in order to provide interested parties with sufficient background information on the legislation, the study’s recommendations, and an outline of the basis for these recommendations.

Consultation with Stakeholders

The proposed A.S.D.C. by-law must be made available more than 60 days prior to passage. The proposed by-law must also be made available more than two weeks prior to a public meeting. Due to current restrictions related to the COVID-19 Pandemic, such as limitations to the gathering of people, a public meeting on the draft ASDC Background Study and by-law will be held after restrictions are lifted which will likely provide the public more time to review the materials.

The statutory public meeting will provide the public an opportunity to learn about and provide further feedback on the ASDC Background Study and proposed by-law. Council will consider the adoption of the ASDC Background Studies including any necessary addenda and passage of the DC by-law at a future Council meeting once a public meeting is held.
