  • Authorization to engage with Watson & Associates Economists Ltd. to undertake a development charges background study and Part XII by-law in the amount of $43,100 (plus applicable taxes). Development charges (DCs) are a critical source of revenue used to finance growth-related infrastructure and are the main instrument used to ensure that “growth pays for growth”. The intent is to ensure that growth related infrastructure costs are funded by new development that benefits from the introduction of the new services (user-pays approach) and that these costs are not borne by existing residents and businesses through property taxes or water/sewer rates. 
  • A proposed by-law to provide for appropriate window coverings for commercial buildings.
  • A proposed draft by-law to regulate the size, use, location, construction and alteration of signs. Consultation meetings would be held with the public and, in particular, the Uptown Leamington Business Improvement Area Board of Management, the Leamington Chamber of Commerce, and local sign makers to obtain feedback and hear comments and concerns related to the contents of this Report and the proposed draft Sign By-law.
