The City of White Rock is committed to listening to its residents, and would like the public’s 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.
The City of White Rock is continuing its community engagement, reaching out to residents for input at White Rock Community Centre on Feb. 4 and Centennial Arena on Feb. 9. Click here to read media release.
