Notice of Passing of By-Law - 1783-1785 Bayview Avenue

Topic

  • Heritage > Designation of a heritage property

Notice Date

2019-02-15

Notice of Intention to Designate - 901 Lawrence Avenue West (Columbus Centre)

Topic

  • Heritage > Intention to designate a heritage property

Notice Date

2019-02-14

Take notice that Toronto City Council intends to designate the lands and building known municipally as 901 Lawrence Avenue West under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

Reasons for Designation

The property at 901 Lawrence Avenue West (Columbus Centre) is worthy of designation under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value and meets Ontario Regulation 9/06, the provincial criteria prescribed for municipal designation under the two categories of historical/associative and contextual value. 

Description

The property at 901 Lawrence Avenue West is located on the south side of Lawrence Avenue West, to the west of Dufferin Street and contains the Columbus Centre, which includes the three-storey St. Mary's Training School (1941), a one to three storey sports and recreational centre including a swimming pool (1962, 1968 and 1980), a double-storey entry atrium (1980) with the Joseph Carrier Art Gallery and the three-storey Rotunda (1980) through an agreement between the Italian Canadian Benevolent Corporation (ICBC) and the Government of Ontario. The complex is clad primarily in red brick with curtain wall-glazing on the 1978-80 addition and faces a large landscaped setting with a sculpture garden and tennis courts.

Statement of Cultural Heritage Value

The property at 901 Lawrence Avenue West has historic value for its association with the Sisters of the Good Shepherd, a religious order whose purpose was to provide refuge and education for young women who found themselves in perilous conditions or living as social outcasts.  The Sisters purchased the property to build the St. Mary's Training School, which was occupied by the school from 1941 to 1973 and later adapted as part of the Columbus Centre complex.  The property is also valued for its association with the ICBC (now known as Villa Charities) which through the dedicated, voluntary leadership of individual members undertook the fund-raising campaigns and building of retirement and community facilities for Italian Canadians from the late 1960s onward which culminated in 1980 with the completion of the Columbus Centre which has become a primary centre for Italian Canadian culture and heritage. 

 

Located on the south side of Lawrence Avenue West at the heart of the former Sisters of the Good Shepherd property, the Columbus Centre has contextual value as it defines and maintains the character of the property as a hub of Italian community facilities.  The rotunda which is the most visible architectural expression of the Columbus Centre sits within a sculpture garden with mature trees, pathways and tennis courts, surrounded on its borders by social and cultural institutions of the Italian community which include schools, retirement homes, long-term care, as well as the social, athletic, business, research and cultural facilities of the centre itself.   The Columbus Centre is visually, physically, functionally and historically linked to its surroundings.  As the physical and cultural focal point of the landscape as well as the neighbouring community, the rotunda is a landmark.

 

The heritage attributes of the property at 901 Lawrence Avenue West are:

 

  • The setback, placement and orientation of the Columbus Centre rotunda sitting within the landscaped setting of the sculpture garden which includes mature trees, and provision for sculptures and a pathway which connects with the Villa Colombo

  • The scale, circular form and massing of the three storey rotunda designed as a large gathering space

  • The mosaic-tiled and brick door frame at the east corner of the south elevation of the St. Mary's Training School with the words "St. Mary's Training School" and decorative mosaic patterns

Notice of an objection to the proposed designation may be served on the City Clerk, Attention:  Francine Adamo, Administrator, North York Community Council, North York Civic Centre, Main Floor, 5100 Yonge Street, Toronto, Ontario M2N 5V7, within thirty days of February 14, 2019, which is March 18, 2019. The notice of objection must set out the reason(s) for the objection, and all relevant facts.

Notice Date

2019-01-28

Notice is hereby given that City officials are recommending to Toronto City Council the enactment of a by-law, effective April 1, 2019, amending the City of Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 441, Fees and Charges, and any other necessary Municipal Code Chapters as may be required, to:

-   increase the water and wastewater consumption rates for metered and flat rate consumers;

-   increase certain proposed water and wastewater service fees; and,

-   to establish a new bulk water fee, based on the Block 1 Rate, for the supply and delivery of water at a City-owned and operated bulk water fill station.

As shown in Appendix A, available at: http://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2019/bu/bgrd/backgroundfile-123889.pdf, the recommended increases in the water and wastewater consumption rates for metered and flat rate consumers, effective April 1, 2019, are as follows:

-   for metered consumers, the Block 1 Rate  and the Block 2 Rate by 3.98%; and

-   for flat rate consumers, all rates by 3.98%.

The proposed increases to water and wastewater service fees, as well as the recommended new bulk water fee, effective April 1, 2019, are shown in Appendix B, available at: http://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2019/bu/bgrd/backgroundfile-123890.pdf.

City officials are not recommending any other changes to any of the other water and wastewater rates and service fees outlined in the City of Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 441, Fees and Charges.

The particulars of the proposed water and wastewater consumption rates and service fee increases, as well as the proposed new bulk water fee, are set out in the report to the Budget Committee of Toronto City Council from the Chief Financial Officer & Treasurer and the Acting General Manager, Toronto Water entitled "2019 Water and Wastewater Consumption Rates and Service Fees " (the "Report").

The Toronto Water Division of the City of Toronto provides water and wastewater (WWW) services to the consumers within the City, areas in Peel (wastewater services) and York Region (water services). The City operates an extensive WWW infrastructure to deliver clean water for consumption and to treat wastewater before it is returned to Lake Ontario.  The Toronto Water 2019 Operating and Capital Budget requires a combined water and wastewater expenditure level of $1.331 billion, which is fully funded from the 2019 water and wastewater consumption rates and service fees. The proposed water and wastewater consumption rate increases will ensure that the appropriate funding is available to the City for the continued provision of these water and wastewater services. The water and wastewater service fee increases reflect the increased costs of providing those specific services. The recommended new bulk water fee reflects the cost of providing that service.

The Budget Committee has established two subcommittees to hear public deputations on the 2019 Capital and Operating Budgets. The Budget Subcommittee for City Hall, and North York Civic Centre Consultation and the Budget Subcommittee for Scarborough Civic Centre and Etobicoke Civic Centre Consultation will receive presentations from any person, or their counsel, agent or solicitor, who wishes to speak to the matter at one of the following meetings:

- City Hall, Committee Room 1, 100 Queen Street West
