After this, the big item of the day will be the 2014 Development Charges study – which recommends decreasing the taxpayer subsidy to new home builders. At present, the City charges $6137 per single family home in DCs. Staff proposed increasing this fee to $9008 per home – still subsidizing over 25% of the cost of development – and have decreased the proposal to $8545. The Hamilton-Halton Home Builders Association is opposed to the increase.
The highway sign is back on the agenda, with some tweaks to decrease costs, and Ward 1 Participatory Budgeting items will be approved.
