In a community that over the last 20 years has averaged maybe ten new homes a year, that has been hit with the closure of the Devon Gas Plant just in the last two months we need to encourage people to build here.
Even during the time when everybody is thrilled to hear that we may be the potential home for a
manufacturer that could one day generate up to a hundred jobs. In addition a
major new development going up in place of the Crowsnest Centre remember the “demolition
before the first snow falls speech”.
What enlightening new idea have our leaders come up with to encourage people to build here? Bylaw 843-Safety Codes Service Fees.
We are going to take the cost of having those new homes certified from $3,683 to $8,080 by 2014 an increase of $4397 a 119% increase that's right 119%.
Hard to believe isn’t it?
