On June 26th 2017 Council passed a Bylaw waiving development charges on Industrial Development until 2019*. The County of Simcoe matched the Township of Ramara’s Bylaw, therefore development in the Industrial Park is only subject to School Board Development charges.  *Dates subject to change at the discretion of Council.
