Belleville city council will be asked to expand its “Central Business District” to allow for a reduction in city development charges for a 103-unit affordable housing apartment building.
Developers propose the building be built at 135 Station Street, just outside the existing “district”.
If located inside the central area, new residential projects are eligible for a 50% reduction in development charges.
The proponents suggest lower charges will make it easier for them to successfully run an affordable housing building.
Council meets Tuesday afternoon at city hall.
