Undustrial, you should probably gain a better understanding of what Development Charges actually pay for before contributing a comment on them. To clarify, the city (ie. ratepayer) does NOT pay for the roads, pipes, streetlamps and wires required for new subdivisions. Those costs are borne solely by the home buyer through the input costs of construction to builders/developers. And by the way, were you aware that the newer subdivisions in upper Stoney Creek and Binbrook are more intensified than many lower city neighbourhoods? The perpetuation of popular mythologies makes for poor argument.
