Development (Cost) Charges are fees that are collected by a municipality to offset the costs of infrastructure needed to serve an expansion, new development, redevelopment or an intensification of use of a property. The developer or builder typically pay the fee during the development process. 
 
The fees are pooled in special reserve accounts and then used to fund the construction of off-site public services (such as: roads, sewers, drainage, watermains, and traffic signals) made necessary by the development.
