Hey, White Rock. How would you spend up to $13 million?
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:
Enhancements to White Rock’s Pier
Affordable housing opportunities
Community Complex: administrative and public space
Maccaud Park Plan
Centre Street Walkway
Theatre Facility or Convention Centre with community access
Five Corners Plaza Plan (Rainbow Pathway)
