Building owners looking to change the exterior colour of their building will now pay significantly less. 

At a public hearing Monday night, City Council amended the bylaws to include a definition of "Minor Works". "Minor Works" is the work necessary to apply a coat of paint to the facade of a builing, changing the current colour scheme.

The bylaw change corresponds with a reduced development permit fee. A minor works development permit application will now cost $250, a decrease from the previous charge of $750.
