After a subdivision approval is granted by the Subdivision Authority, or after a Development Permit is issued by a Development Officer, the developer may be required to enter into a servicing agreement with the City in order to ensure that the development is constructed in accordance to the City of Edmonton standards, and also to ensure that the developer pays for the development’s share of the infrastructure that it will benefit from.
The City of Edmonton may also require that a developer or property owner enter into a servicing agreement if the developer simply wishes to provide services to existing un-serviced properties in residential, commercial and industrial areas.
The servicing agreement is a legal contract between the developer (or property owner) and the City of Edmonton which outlines the terms and conditions, financial and otherwise, which must be met and agreed upon prior to development proceeding.
Servicing agreements make provision for construction of municipal improvements such as water mains, storm and sanitary sewers, roads, sidewalks, curbs and gutters, power, street lighting, landscaping and various other items.
The City’s authority to require a developer to enter into a servicing agreement comes from Section 655 and 650 of the Municipal Government Act and Section 15 of the Edmonton Zoning Bylaw 12800.
