Penticton has not updated its Development Cost Charges since 2007 and they are now out of step with current construction costs, development needs and growth projects. Council made it a priority to modernize the DCC Bylaw this term to ensure the cost of growth-related infrastructure is shared equitably with the people who will benefit. This work will be completed in 2021. In advance of this review, Council directed staff to:

  • review the DCCs for Public Open Spaces and compare to similar sized municipalities in the Okanagan
  • review the cost of living increases that might be applied to all classifications
  • provide Council with an amending DCC bylaw that addresses Public Open Spaces with a timeline of up to one year.
