Mississippi Mills follows the principal that growth should pay for growth.  As a result, new development projects are required to pay Development Charges to off set the costs of expansions and upgrades to municipal services, parks and institutions to accommodate more residents in our community.

Development Charges are generally payable at the time a Building Permit is issued and are subject to a set fee established at the beginning of each year. Charges to both the local municipality and County of Lanark are applicable.
