The City of White Rock is committed to engaging with its residents, and has gathered public input into how to spend up to $13 million in community amenity contributions (CACs) once they have been collected.
Developers pay White Rock development cost charges (DCCs) to assist with utilities like water, sewage and roads. They also pay CACs to help with capital investments to benefit the community.
Some of the options for consideration are:
|Can be used for:||Can’t be used for:|
|Capital costs for new facilities||Tax reductions|
|Affordable housing||Operating/maintenance costs|
|Child care centres||Long term replacement costs|
|Public art||Reducing ice rental costs at the Arena|
|Streetscape /pedestrian upgrades||Fixing potholes|
|Expanding/enhancing the White Rock Pier||Reducing parking rates|
|Parks and recreation facilities||Free bus passes for residents|
|Arts and culture facilities||Costs for special events|
|Civic facilities (such as City Hall, library, Fire Hall)||Marketing or promoting the City|
The results from the engagement in January and February 2020 will be shared this spring with an update that will go to City Council.
