The City of Oshawa is currently undergoing an update to their development charges (DCs) to address the Fire Master Plan and Community Risk Assessment, Growth Related Operations Facility Needs Assessment, and a change to the treatment of self-storage facilities from Industrial to Commercial by definition.
The 2021 Development Charges Update Study, completed by Watson & Associates, indicates that this update would result in an increase of $481 for single detached homes, from the current $25,509 to $25,990.
The statutory public meeting is scheduled for September. The updated DC Bylaw would be brought to council in October or November, and would go into effect in either December 2021 or January 2022.
