What's Up, Welland?
Getting Charged up for Development Charges
Show Notes

Development Charges. DCs. A rose by any other name. 

Recently, City of Welland Council approved the DC background study and associated bylaws. What that means for one municipality is not uniform across the board. Yes, we all have development charges, but what they are, are unique to each town or city.  In this episode, Grant Munday, director of planning and development services, joins the show to talk about DCs, what they mean to Welland, and how the residents here and in the future benefit. 

Spoiler: new growth pays for existing growth.
