Implementation Guide, School Site Acquisition Charge, BC - 2000

Building type:

We prepared a manual to explain how to implement a new charge to be applied to residential development: the School Site Acquisition Charge. The purpose of the charge is to help pay for new school sites required as a result of new housing. We consulted with a stakeholder group comprising members from government, school districts, local government, and the development industry. Later, we held seminars to inform government and school district personnel about implementing the new charge. We also assisted the Ministry of Education to evaluate proposals submitted by the school districts. Completed in 2000.
