Oxnard to meet DC payment deadline for Alliston development
Posted April 13,
Oxnard Development Inc. expects to meet its development charges
obligation of approximately $1 million by May 25 to continue building
its Kings Gate subdivision at Industrial Parkway and King Street in
On Monday night, New Tecumseth councillors rejected the builder's
request to delay payment covering the water, wastewater, and
transportation component required for its phase two of a 59 unit
development adjacent to Kingsmere.
Negar Javaherian, Project Coordinator, Oxnard Development Inc. had told
councillors they were seeking the deferral, blaming a softening housing
market on provincial and federal government policies, for their only
selling two houses since October 2017. But council was concerned about
the precendent it would set, fearing other developers would line up for
the same request.
"This is not going to change our plan," Ms. Javaherian wrote in an
email reply to Free Press Online. "Although we were hoping to get
relief from the payment of DCs, we will pay it by the due date and we
will continue forward with our site."
