Infrastructure Master Plan

The Infrastructure Master Plan is a critical document focused on land use. The plan examines the effects of potential growth scenarios on each component of infrastructure – including water, wastewater, stormwater and transportation/road systems – and explores solutions to any possible deficiencies.

Area Structure Plans

Area structure plans (ASP) are approved by Council as bylaws, and guide future development. An ASP provides a framework that describes:

  • the proposed land uses
  • density of population
  • sequence of development
  • general location of major roadways
  • public utilities in the area
  • any additional requirements that Council may identify

Off-Site Levies

An off-site levy allows municipalities to recover capital costs incurred for infrastructure improvements as a result of new development or growth. Off-site levies transparently and equitably allocate off-site infrastructure capital costs to those that benefit – thus ensuring that growth pays for growth.
