A local improvement can be initiated by the City based on an infrastructure assessment and the need for repairs or replacement. Alternatively property owners who wish to have improvements carried out near or adjacent to their property can request that the City initiate a local improvement. This is done formally via an Expression of Interest (EOI), where it must be proven the majority of property owners are in support before the local improvement will move forward.
Specific procedures and timelines vary depending upon the type of local improvement. The City mails such details to property owners in a Local Improvement Notice. Once the notice is issued, residents have 30 days to petition against the local improvement.
