🗣📣 Deputations


⏳💰 Owen Street Development Charge Deferral Request (Ward 2)

  • Deputation Requests: https://barrie.legistar.com/View.ashx?M=F&ID=11245193&GUID=76F410D2-22BB-4BE2-8492-60A14644F99B

  • Deputation by Cathy Colebatch

  • Colebatch not in favour of a "lame duck" Council making a decision related to the development charge deferral request, as it sets a precedent that next Council may be stuck with. The development is for profit, and the developers should have their funding in place and not use public funding, when Development Charge Reserves are forecast to be depleted. How would this guarantee the development gets built, and doesn't just get flipped again?

  • Moved by N.Harris, Seconded by Kungl: 1.

That a letter of support be sent to local MPPs, MPP Stephen Blais, the Premier, and Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, and the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO).
