  • Notice Regarding Changes to Transit Development Charges Collected by the City of Niagara Falls as of January 1, 2023

    Description

    In February 2022, triple majority approval was obtained to consolidate all municipal and regional transit services in the Niagara Region (the Region) into the Niagara Transit Commission (NTC).

    On January 1, 2023, Transit services will be regionalized and the responsibility of future growth-related transit investments will also be moving to the new Transit Commission.

    As a result of this change, the Region undertook a review of transit service for inclusion in a D.C. by-law. The Transit D.C. Background Study was released by the Region on July 29, 2022 and a Developer/Community Engagement meeting was held September 7, 2022. On September 29, 2022 a Public Meeting was held and the new by-law for Transit was approved by Regional Council. This new by-law shifts the responsibility for growthrelated capital investment in transit to the Region effective January 1, 2023 and, pursuant to section 13(1) of the Municipal Act, 2001, S.O. 2001, c. 25, overrides the provisions as they relate to transit services in the City of Niagara Falls By-Law 2019-69 as of January 1, 2023.

    It is important to note that as a result of this change, the Development Charge rates for Transit will change effective January 1, 2023 to reflect the rates established by the Region’s DC Background Study and By-Law and will be remitted to the Region moving forward. For greater certainty, the Transit DC rates established by the Region will replace the existing rates currently levied by the City of Niagara Falls on January 1, 2023.

    The City of Niagara Falls hereby provides formal notice of this change to the public and the development community. Per the Regional Municipality of Niagara By-Law No. 202294, the rates for Transit Development Charges effective January 1, 2023 are outlined in Appendix A attached.

    Should members of the public or the development community have any questions, they can be submitted via our public notice on https://letstalk.niagarafalls.ca/.
