MGA: Status as of April 5, 2018
- The Province has approved amendments to the Off-Site Levies Regulation to include provisions surrounding the provincial highway / transportation levy. These changes allow municipalities to establish a levy to fund highway improvements that result from new developments. The levy must be based on technical studies such as a Traffic Impact Assessment and developers can only be charged based on the degree that they benefit. We will provide more information in the coming days but until then, the amendments can be viewed here.
- BILD Alberta has prepared an MGA Implementation Guide for Constituent Associations and members.
- The province has released a number of Fact Sheets related to some of the major changes that have taken place as part of the MGA Review. BILD Alberta has compiled these into a single document here.
- BILD Alberta is awaiting the release of regulations associated with Inclusionary Housing, Municipally Controlled Corporations, and the Community Organization Property Tax Exemption Regulation.
The following regulations were proclaimed in late October 2017:
- Off-Site Levies Regulation
- Subdivision and Development Regulation - Amendments
- Intermunicipal Collaboration Frameworks
- Calgary Metropolitan Region Board Regulation
- Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board Regulation
- Phase one of City Charters were approved in early April. The Calgary City Charter can be viewed here and the Edmonton City Charter can be viewed here. Little to no changes were made from the draft document to now so our previous summary of key changes remains largely relevant.
- Phase two of City Charters will focus on the fiscal relationship between the Cities and the Province with no timelines being provided by the Province at this stage.
