The City of Grande Prairie is currently working on updating Bylaw C-1197 - Transportation Off-Site Levy. Off-site transportation levies are funds collected to cover the expenditures related to constructing the regional (arterial) road network within the city.

BACKGROUND

The Municipal Government Act (MGA) permits a council to enact a bylaw to provide for the imposition and payment of off-site levies in respect of land to be developed or subdivided and to authorize agreements to be entered into in respect of the payment of the levies. The City's current Transportation Off-Site Levy Bylaw has not had a formal update since it was adopted September 22, 2008.

HOW WILL STAKEHOLDERS BE ENGAGED?

Online Consultation - The City's engagement platform will be updated regularly to share all information with stakeholders. Stakeholders are welcome to submit feedback to the City's Project Lead - acolter@cityofgp.com or through the question and answer tool at the bottom of this page.

Public Engagement Sessions - The City will be hosting one or two public engagement sessions to allow stakeholders to review documents and engage in discussions around this bylaw update. Dates and locations will be released for the engagement sessions when they become available.

    More taxes ? Do not think we are taxed enough ?

    Dont have one asked 26 days ago

    Good morning! Off-site transportation levies are not a tax and updating this bylaw will not directly affect the average resident in Grande Prairie. The current Off-Site Transportation Levy Bylaw has been in place since 2008, and levies are collected from developers whenever new land is developed. These funds are used to construct new major roadways in the city. For example, a portion of the 92 Street twinning and the 68 Avenue twinning was paid for with these levies. Updating this bylaw will address changes that have occurred in the city since the bylaw was last reviewed, including the 2015 annexation and the updated Transportation Master Plan, this will ensure the City is collecting the appropriate amount of levy funds.
