Municipalities are prepared to support reductions in development charges and fees where they help to meet housing and affordability goals, provided that the government commits to a 200 University Ave. [...] Municipalities recognize the value of making investments to support the types of housing that we need the most – including purpose built rental units, affordable units and units built by not-for-profit developers. [...] Reconsidering the maximum land value and eligibility requirements for community benefits charges to reduce storeys and unit requirements to more inclusive of medium-density development would make these new tools more relevant to a greater number of communities. [...] We appreciate the clarity recently provided with respect to the purpose and objectives of these measures and look forward to further consultation to better understand the potential impacts and benefits. [...] We look forward to consultations on these measures and other important elements – including fee refund schedules and cash-in-lieu of parkland – in the new year at both the AMO-MOU Table and the Provincial-Municipal Housing Engagement Table.
