Update: BELGRAVIA NEIGHBOURHOOD DECORATIVE STREETLIGHT
EXPRESSION OF INTEREST (EOI)
As property owners in Belgravia have begun receiving their EOIs for the decorative streetlights, some common questions are arising.
1. Only, the incremental costs associated with the decorative streetlights are
being addressed at this time. Any other costs associated with neighbourhood
renewal are not optional and are therefore not relevant to decision regarding
2. Only an estimate of the cost of the decorative streetlights can be provided at
this point. The estimate is based upon the average 50 ft. frontage in Belgravia.
That is, the average front length is 15.24m (50 feet). The cash rate per meter
A lump sum payment of 15.24 m x $12.70 = $193.55
A yearly rate of $1.00 x 15.24 m paid over 15 years = $233.10 or $15.54 per
3. At this stage only the conceptual unit rate for decorative streetlights was
incorporated in the EOI letter and is subject to change. Once we have 50% +1
responses in favour of the decorative streetlights, the City will proceed with
preliminary rates and perform calculations for each property.
4. People living in condominiums might receive multiple EOIs. There will be a
cost associated with each tax number, albeit a very minimal cost. The property
front and/or flank length distributes evenly between all condo accounts
including storage spaces and parking lots.
5. For people with corner properties the following is the explanation for how they
will be assessed. Corner lots that abut and flank proposed local improvement
construction (sidewalks on both the front and side of the property) will be
assessed the full rate on the short side (frontage) and 15 per cent of the length
of the long side (flankage). For more information go to: https://
