Description

Notice is given that the Chief Building Official and Executive Director, Toronto Building, is reporting on a proposed amendment to Municipal Code Chapter 694, Signs, General (the "Sign By-law"), to amend the Sign By-law to allow for, and regulate, the display of one third party electronic ground sign at the premises municipally known as 494 Richmond Street East. 

The proposed amendment seeks to:

1.         Add an area-specific amendment to the Sign By-law for the premises municipally known as 494 Richmond Street East to allow, in addition to the signage otherwise permitted on the premises, the erection and display of the following sign:

-           One third party electronic ground sign containing one sign face, facing in an easterly direction, containing electronic static copy and measuring 6.1 metres horizontally by 3.05 metres vertically, with a total sign face area of 18.6 square metres; and, a height (highest point of the sign measured from grade) of 10.0 metres, which:

-          Advertises, promotes, or directs attention to businesses, goods, services, matters or activities that are not available at or related to the premises where the sign is located;

-          Has an initial sign permit expiry term of ten years from the date of issuance, and is null and void on its expiry date; and,

-          On the condition that the existing third party ground sign located at 520 Richmond Street East be removed, and all associated permits be cancelled prior to the issuance of a sign permit.

The Chief Building Official and Executive Director, Toronto Building, is recommending that the Council of the City of Toronto refuse to add the area-specific amendment to the Sign By-law for 494 Richmond Street East.

The Planning and Housing Committee may recommend that the Council of the City of Toronto amend the Sign By-law, to amend Schedule B, Signage Master Plans and Area Specific Amendments, to add a new area specific amendment to Schedule B, Signage Master Plans and Area Specific Amendments, to allow 494 Richmond Street East to contain, in addition to the signs otherwise permitted, the third party electronic ground sign.

At its meeting to be held in Toronto City Hall, Committee Room 1, on May 28, 2019 commencing at 10:30 a.m., or as soon as possible thereafter, the Planning and Housing Committee of Toronto City Council will hear in person or by his or her counsel, agent or solicitor, any person who wishes to speak to the matter.
