Off-Site Levies


In some areas of the County, off-site levies / transportation contributions have been imposed to cover the costs incurred for infrastructure improvements (roads, water and sewer) in that area. One of the County's philosophies is that those properties benefiting from the infrastructure improvements should incur the respective costs. In other areas of the County where off site levies / transportation contributions have not been implemented, when development occurs, the expectation is that the developer will be responsible for construction and installation of all infrastructure to Red Deer County standards.

A list of the areas in Red Deer County with off-site levies can be found online.
