Development Charges Revised By-law & Draft Development Charges Background Study

This study requires a review of past capital expenditures, capital forecasts, average levels of service, operational costs, and assessed values of property and equipment. The Town of Prescott‚Äôs Development Charges By-law expired in 2018 and as such a new by-law was developed. The completion and publication of the Development Charges Background Study was the first step towards developing a new By-law.
