The Associaion of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities (AVICC) has endorsed the Town of Lake Cowichan’s resolution for revitalization tax exemptions.
The resolution would allow the town the right to freeze property taxes in order to prevent owners from being penalized for making improvements to their properties. The hoped-for result is for this to encourage property owners to beautify and improve their buildings, to help in the town’s revitalization.
The AVICC’s endorsement mean the issue will come up at the Union of BC Municipalities conference this fall, where, if endorsed, will go on to the province for consideration.
