6.1       Black Ash Creek – Development Charges, Nancy Neale, Watson & Associates
 
Proposed Black Ash Creek Watershed Special Policy Area Development Charges By-law Pursuant to Section 12 of the Development Charges Act, 1997, the purpose of the public meeting is to enable the public to understand generally the area-specific development charge proposal and to solicit public input.  The area covered by the area-specific development charge is shown below
 
THE PURPOSE AND EFFECT of the proposed by-law is to allow the Town to recover a portion of the costs of the Black Ash Creek (BAC) channelization project.  This project was undertaken to permit residential and non-residential development to take place in locations within the BAC Special Policy Area.  The benefiting area includes both the watershed area located to the west of BAC, and the Special Policy area located to the east of BAC.  Storm water drains into the Black Ash Creek primarily from lands located in the watershed (to the west) causing potential flooding to occur on lands located in the Special Policy Area (to the east).  The channelization works are designed, in part, to prevent future flooding in the Special Policy Area.
