Campbell River launches interactive tax calculator for Area D residents

The City of Campbell River’s website now includes a tax calculator that will help Area D residents estimate changes to annual taxes, user fees and other costs if they decide to join the City of Campbell River.

Using 2013 rates, the tax calculator allows people to enter their property’s assessed value and fees they pay for solid waste services and septic field maintenance. The tax calculator compares these and estimates what they would pay in city property taxes and other fees in the event of a boundary extension.

The tax calculator can be found at www.campbellriver.ca under Planning, Building & Development.

Additional information about the proposed boundary extension that would offer sewer service to properties in the northernmost section of Area D is also available on the website.

People are encouraged to ask any questions about the proposal by contacting the City directly by phone (250-286-5700) or via email to info@campbellriver.ca.

An open house will be held from 5-8 p.m. on Feb. 27 at Ocean Grove Elementary (3773 McLelan Road) where Area D residents and property owners will be able to learn more about a proposed boundary extension and sewer service offer.

The open house will give the city’s consultant, Urban Systems, an opportunity to gather public feedback on the draft proposal.
