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.
The City held an information session and workshop on Jan. 20 to gather input on how to spend up to $13 million in community amenity contributions (CACs), once they are collected. Developers pay the City development cost charges (DCCs) to help with utilities like water, sewage and roads. They also pay CACs for capital investments to benefit the community.

“The City of White Rock is asking everyone in White Rock to provide input into how the City should spend an expected $13 million in community amenity contributions. Whatever your preferences, as long as the projects are eligible, whether it’s a theatre, affordable housing, a new convention centre, or many more options, we are listening, and want to hear from you.”
