The Feb. 27, 2017, Regular Meeting of Council included:
2017 Supplemental Property Assessment and Tax Bylaw
Council approved the 2017 Supplementary Property Assessment and Supplementary Property Tax Bylaws. These bylaws provide The City with the authority to prepare 2017 supplementary property assessments in order to levy 2017 supplementary property taxes. Council’s Action Plan Mid-Cycle Adjustments budget included supplementary property taxes as a source of municipal revenue. Supplementary tax revenues are a source of funding for current operating fiscal plans. For 2017, the budget amount is $5.3 million in municipal supplementary property tax revenues.
Designation of the White Residence as a Municipal Historic Resource
Council approved designation of the White Residence as a Municipal Historic Resource. The White Residence is a Prairie style house built in 1915, located in the community of South Calgary. The property has been determined to be significant by the Calgary Heritage Authority, for its symbolic value, representative of early residential development in South Calgary along the former Municipal Streetcar Line; and, its style value, being an excellent example of Prairie style architecture with an uncommonly well-preserved interior. Protecting Calgary’s historic resources is an identified objective of The City.
