Property Development
Property Development transforms ideas into plans into physical reality. It involves the financing, construction, renovation or refurbishment of buildings and land in order to make a profit.

The key phase in property development is deciding the nature of the development and whether or not to proceed with it. These decisions are based on an evaluation of the market and a financial appraisal of the proposed development including constraints, risks and profit.

The development process can be summarised as:

  • Initiation and Evaluation
  • Land and Property Acquisition
  • Design and Permissions
  • Construction
  • Management / Operation
  • Windup and Disposal

Assessments and Mill Rates


Property assessment is the process of assigning a dollar value to a property for taxation purposes. In Alberta, property is taxed based on the ad valorem principle. Ad valorem means "according to value.” This means that the amount of tax paid is based on the value of the property.

The market value-based standard is used to determine the assessed values for the majority of properties in Alberta.

Market value is the price a property might reasonably be expected to sell for if sold by a willing seller to a willing buyer after appropriate time and exposure in an open market.

Assessors gather information on ranges of sale prices in the marketplace. This statistical data is used as part of the process for calculating market value-based assessments.

Mill Rates

Mill rates are established every year by a bylaw approved by Council. A mill rate is the rate used to calculate your annual tax levy. This is called the mill rate because the number is expressed in mills - one mill is 1/10th of a cent ($.001).

Your mill rate is the amount of taxes to be raised for every $1 of assessed value for your property.

For example: A tax parcel valued at $1,000, with a combined residential mill rate of 7.4943, would have a tax levy of $7.49.

Minimum Property Tax

Cardston County has set a minimum property tax per parcel.
