Community Amenity Contribution (CAC) Policy

Community Amenity Contribution (CAC) Policy & Interim Targets


The Community Amenity Contribution (CAC) policy is updated regularly to guide the District’s approach to seek and allocate community benefits in association with zoning approvals for changes in land use and/or density.

The page content below highlights information from a 2015/16 policy update. The most recent policy update can be viewed in the Policies Library.

CAC Policy Goal. To date, amenities provided in various forms from individual development projects seeking rezoning, have been on a case-by-case basis rather than based on an adopted policy and consistent approach. The intent of this policy is to outline the District’s approach to obtaining Community Amenity Contributions so that the public, land owners, and developers understand the purpose and legal mechanisms for these contributions. The District wants its approach to Community Amenity Contributions to be clearly understood, predictable, consistently applied, and reasonable.

At the December 15, 2015 Regular Council meeting, the District of Squamish adopted Interim Community Amenity Contribution (CAC) Targets and Allocations. The interim CAC schedule bridges and fills the current policy void while a more comprehensive CAC policy is finalized. These interim targets will form the basis for further consultation, review and analysis with the development community and the community at large.
