While the initial capital costs costs are subsidized by Development Charges (I'm not going to acknowledge that they pay for such things completely unless you can point me to some concrete evidence otherwise), you must acknowledge that there are ongoing maintenance costs which ARE born by the city.

Also, many of these items (roads, pipes, electrical wire) connect to the existing grid, putting additional load on them, and resulting in increased costs. For example, additional electrical wiring puts burdens on existing substations/transformers which might accelerate the need to replace them.
