Final Report - 11 Dunbloor Road - City-Initiated Zoning By-law Amendment Application
Public Notice Given
Statutory - Planning Act, RSO 1990
Origin
(May 25, 2016) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Etobicoke York District
Recommendations

Should City Council wish to reallocate the Section 37 community benefits related to the development at 11 Dunbloor Road, City Council can provide the following direction:

 

1.  City Council amend Site Specific Zoning By-law No. 751-2003, for the lands at 11 Dunbloor Road (formerly known as 5145 Dundas Street West) substantially in accordance with the draft Zoning By-law Amendment attached as Attachment No. 1 to the report of the Director of Community Planning, Etobicoke York District, dated May 25, 2016. 

 

2.  City Council authorize the City Solicitor to make such stylistic and technical changes to the draft Zoning By-law Amendment as may be required.

 

3.  City Council authorize the City Solicitor to amend the registered Section 37 Agreement for the property at 11 Dunbloor Road (formerly known as 5145 Dundas Street West) to reallocate the remainder of the original $225,000 contribution (plus accrued interest) for Section 37 community benefits to capital streetscape improvements within Ward 5.

 

4.  Before introducing the necessary Bills to City Council for enactment, require the owner to execute an Amending Section 37 Agreement, satisfactory to the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning Division, and the City Solicitor.

Summary

This City-initiated application proposes to amend the Zoning By-law and Section 37 Agreement for the lands at 11 Dunbloor Road (formerly known as 5145 Dundas Street West) to reallocate previously secured Section 37 community benefits for streetscape improvements within Ward 5.

 

At its meeting of May 15 2012, Etobicoke York Community Council directed staff to review the status of secured but unexpended Section 37 funds in Ward 5 for the purpose of identifying funds that could be reallocated to alternate appropriate community benefits and to undertake City-initiated Zoning By-law Amendments accordingly.

 

The property at 11 Dunbloor Road (formerly known as 5145 Dundas Street West) was identified as one such property with a Section 37 Agreement which could be amended.

 

At its meeting of July 16-19, 2013, City Council adopted recommendations to permit the Section 37 community benefits to be reallocated to a community centre and/or park improvements, if and when consent was provided by all the relevant parties to amend the Section 37 Agreement.

 

 This report is required because the current proposal is to reallocate the funds further, to be spent on capital streetscape improvements within Ward 5.

Financial Impact

The recommendations in this report have no financial impact.

Public Notice Given
Statutory - Planning Act, RSO 1990
Origin
(May 25, 2016) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Etobicoke York District
Recommendations

The City Planning Division recommends that:

 

1.  City Council amend the Official Plan by adding the lands subject to the Official Plan Amendment (see Attachment 1) at 2445 Lake Shore Boulevard West to the list of properties in Site and Area Specific Policy No. 265, substantially in accordance with the draft Official Plan Amendment attached as Attachment 6 to the May 24, 2016 report from the Director of Community Planning, Etobicoke York District.

           

2.  City Council authorize the City Solicitor to make such stylistic and technical changes to the draft Official Plan Amendment as may be required.

Summary

This City-initiated application proposes an Official Plan Amendment to allow for a lease extension by Storefront Humber Incorporated, a non-profit organization, on part of the lands known as 2445 Lake Shore Boulevard West to allow Storefront Humber to continue to operate in this location.

 

An Official Plan Amendment is required as the property is located in the Green Space System and is designated as Parks and Open Space Areas under the Toronto Official Plan.  The sale or disposal of City owned lands in the Green Space System and Parks and Open Space Areas is prohibited by Official Plan policies.  The extension of a lease that exceeds a period of 21 years is a form of disposition that is not permitted.  The building at 2445 Lake Shore Boulevard West has been leased to Storefront Humber Incorporated for a period of 20 years, since 1996, and the existing lease expires on May 31, 2016.

 

This report reviews and recommends approval of the application to amend the Official Plan for the purpose stated.

Financial Impact

Public Notice Given
Statutory - Planning Act, RSO 1990
Origin
(May 18, 2016) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Etobicoke York District
Recommendations

The City Planning Division recommends that:

 

1.  City Council repeal By-law No. 379-2015 for the lands located at 2 Station Road.

           

2.  City Council re-instate the R3 – Third Density Residential zone of the former City of Etobicoke Zoning Code for the lands at 2 Station Road substantially in accordance with the draft Zoning By-law Amendment attached as Attachment No. 2 to the Report of the Director, Community Planning, Etobicoke York District dated May 11, 2016.

 

3.  City Council authorize the City Solicitor to make such stylistic and technical changes to the draft Zoning By-law Amendment as may be required.

Summary

At its meeting of July 8, 2014 City Council approved a proposal for the adaptive re-use of the heritage building, the Wesley Mimico United Church, at 2 Station Road.  The application proposed a multi use facility including a new worship area, community uses and 30 seniors apartments.  Part 6 of City Council's decision stated that if the development did not proceed within five (5) years from the passage of the Bills by City Council, the site specific Zoning By-law Amendment would be null and void and new plans and drawings for the development of the site must be submitted to the City of Toronto for approval.

 

The execution of a Section 37 Agreement was required prior to the Bills being submitted to City Council.  The Section 37 agreement was executed on March 31, 2015 and City Council adopted By-law No. 379 -2015, a site specific zoning amendment for the property.  The Section 37 Agreement and Heritage Easement Agreement provided that should the City receive notice in writing from the developer that the proposal would not proceed, the Section 37 Agreement and the associated Heritage Easement Agreement would be terminated and the Zoning By-law provisions applicable to the site on the day immediately prior to the passing of the Amending By-law could be restored by City Council.

 

On January 24, 2016, the applicant provided the City with written notice that the project, as approved, would not proceed, and the owners waived the 90 day period for the termination of the Section 37 Agreement and the Heritage Easement Agreement.

 

This report recommends that Zoning By-law No. 379-2015 be repealed consistent with the terms of the Section 37 Agreement and the R3 – Third Density Residential zone in the former City of Etobicoke Zoning Code be restored.

This application requests an exemption from the Part Lot Control provisions of the Planning Act for the lands located at 10 – 76 Dryden Way (Formerly 4750 Eglinton Avenue West) in order to allow for the division of land to create conveyable parcels for the 68 townhouse units currently under construction.  It will also allow for the creation of reciprocal easements for those lots which have side yard building setbacks of less than 1.2m.

 

The proposal complies with the Official Plan and Zoning By-law.  The lifting of Part Lot Control for a period of two years is considered appropriate for the orderly development of these lands.

 

This report reviews and recommends approval of Part Lot Control Exemption.

Financial Impact

The recommendations in this report have no financial impact.

Proposed Zoning By-law Amendments - Lands Formerly Known as 2277 Sheppard Avenue West, 100 Mainshep Road and 3035 Weston Road - Supplementary Report
Origin
(December 16, 2015) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Etobicoke York District
Recommendations

The City Planning Division recommends that:

 

1.         Etobicoke York Community Council direct the Director of Community Planning, Etobicoke York District to work with the Ward Councillor to determine an appropriate community benefit for the lands at the southeast corner of Weston Road and Sheppard Avenue West (formerly known as 2277 Sheppard Avenue West, 100 Mainshep Road and 3035 Weston Road) having a value that would be equivalent to the total application fees paid by residents whose Minor Variance applications would not have been required had the proposed Zoning By-law been in force and effect at the time the applications were made.

Summary

A Final Report on the subject application was considered by Etobicoke York Community Council on September 8, 2015.  The report recommended that City Council amend former City of North York Zoning By-law No. 7625 for the lands at the southeast corner of Weston Road and Sheppard Avenue West (formerly known as 2277 Sheppard Avenue West, 100 Mainshep Road and 3035 Weston Road) to permit larger rear yard decks.  Etobicoke York Community Council recommended the staff recommendations be approved by City Council, but added a recommendation that City Council approve reimbursement of Committee of Adjustment fees charged to applicants whose Minor Variance applications would not have been required had the proposed Zoning By-law been in force and effect at the time the applications were made.  

 

At its meeting on September 30, 2015, City Council adopted the recommendations to amend the Zoning By-law, but directed the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning to report to Etobicoke York Community Council on the recommendation that Committee of Adjustment fees be reimbursed. 

Financial Impact

The recommendation above could have future financial impact, however, it is anticipated the funding for the community benefit identified in the recommendation will be incorporated into future capital budgeting.

Pedestrian Access to City Laneway - Lawrence Avenue West to MacDonald Avenue
Origin
(May 27, 2016) Report from the Director, Public Realm Section, Transportation Services and the Director, Transportation Services, Etobicoke-York District
Recommendations

Transportation Services recommends that:

 

1.  Etobicoke York Community Council NOT approve installing fencing across the laneway between MacDonald Avenue and Lawrence Avenue West, east of Ralph Street in order to block access to pedestrians.

Summary

This staff report is about a matter that Community Council has delegated authority from City Council to make a final decision.

 

Following requests by local residents to block pedestrian access to a laneway due to concerns about illegal and antisocial behaviours, this report advises on the advantages and disadvantages of converting existing guardrails to full fences to prevent pedestrian through traffic on the public laneway which runs north-south between Lawrence Avenue West and MacDonald Avenue, east of Ralph Street. 

 

Reducing public through access on this laneway has the potential to reduce the rate of illegal activity now associated with pedestrian access. The advantage of closing the laneway to public access is to provide the abutting landowners with the benefits of a private lane, while being maintained by the City. The disadvantages of closing the lane include the removal of an efficient transportation link for a significant number of pedestrians between Lawrence Avenue West and MacDonald Avenue, including the local high school, Weston Road Collegiate. The closing of the lane with fencing would also be contrary to the principles of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) and may lead to situations where, as a result, the affected lanes become less safe due to limited access and visibility from the street. Once access is limited, there is also an increased likelihood that the lanes will be used for illegal parking. Finally, the addition of a chain-link or wood fence is likely to attract a variety of maintenance issues, including graffiti, garbage and weeds which will require additional City resources on an ongoing basis. As a result, City staff do not recommend that the laneway be blocked against pedestrian use.

Financial Impact

The cost of adding new chain-link fences is estimated to be $3,000. In addition, the fences are likely to have ongoing maintenance costs which would have potential impacts on future operating budgets.

 

Funding for these costs is not included in the 2016 Operating Budget for Transportation Services.

 

The Deputy City Manager & Chief Financial Officer has reviewed this report and agrees with the financial impact information.

Proposed Installation of Sidewalks on Usher Avenue
Origin
(May 10, 2016) Letter from Councillor Justin Di Ciano, Ward 5, Etobicoke-Lakeshore
Recommendations

Etobicoke York Community Council:

 

1.         Request the General Manager, Transportation Services, to immediately cancel plans for the installation of sidewalks on Usher Avenue.

Summary

In the past few weeks, my office has been contacted by residents on Usher Avenue who were frustrated to learn that a sidewalk would be constructed on the south side of the existing road on Usher Avenue from Royal York Road to the Kingsway.

 

I have received a petition demonstrating that all of the homes affected on Usher Avenue are opposed to the installation of sidewalks.

 

Despite the City's policy to build a physical environment which supports walking and accessibility, the City's policy also states that any proposed sidewalks can only be installed on an existing local street after the Ward Councillor completes a consultation of the neighbourhood and receives consensus to support the installation. Although Usher Avenue is a collector road, the residents have been overwhelmingly clear that they do not support the installation. Note that The Kingsway to the south – a street that is far more heavily used – does not have sidewalks as the residents of the area have historically opposed their installation. It is also my understanding that there have been no formal studies by staff to examine a need for a sidewalk on Usher Avenue.

 

I was initially instructed to put forward this motion at Public Works and Infrastructure Committee on April 25th. At Committee, it was indicated by Clerks that the procedural bylaw requires that local and collector road sidewalks be dealt with at Community Council. It is with this direction that I am submitting this motion to Etobicoke York Community Council.

Construction Staging Area - Sherway Gardens Road
Origin
(May 25, 2016) Report from the Director, Transportation Services – Etobicoke York District
Recommendations

Transportation Services recommends that Etobicoke York Community Council approve the following actions:

 

1.  The occupation of the westbound lanes on the north side of Sherway Gardens Road between Sherway Gate and a point 61 metres further east, from June 1, 2016 to November 30, 2016, as shown on the attached drawing.

 

2.  Direct that Sherway Gardens Road be returned to its pre-construction traffic when the project is complete.

Summary

EllisDon Corporation is expanding Sherway Gardens by demolishing 4,000m2 of existing floor area presently occupied by Sporting Life, replacing it with a 12,500 m2 Nordstrom Store and a three-storey parking garage. The subject site is located on the north side of Sherway Gardens Road, opposite Sherway Gate.

 

The Sherway Gardens site is regulated by By-law No. 1204-2007 (OMB), and currently consists of a one-storey shopping mall providing a gross floor area of 115,910 m2. The by-law allows the site to develop up to 157,930 m2 of retail-commercial gross leasable area. The westbound lanes on the north side of Sherway Gardens Road between Sherway Gate and a point 61 metres further east will need to be closed for a period of six months with this construction work. Two-way traffic will be maintained at all times on the south side of Sherway Gardens Road consisting of lane in each direction. A pedestrian walkway will be maintained on the north side Sherway Gardens Road, fronting the construction staging area.

Financial Impact

There is no financial impact on the City. EllisDon Corporation is responsible for all costs, including payment of fees to the City for the occupancy of the right-of-way. Based on the area enclosed and projected duration of the closure, these fees will be approximately $82,508.40

Report Request - Reducing Speed Limits in Ward 13
Origin
(May 26, 2016) Letter from Councillor Sarah Doucette, Ward 13, Parkdale-High Park
Recommendations

That the Etobicoke York Community Council request the General Manager, Transportation Services, to report to the Etobicoke York Community Council meeting on September 7, 2016 for consideration of reducing the speed limits on all local roads in Ward 13 to 30 km/h.

Summary

Requests from residents of Ward 13 for speed reductions and traffic calming measures have increased in recent years. Residents are concerned with vehicle speeds and volumes on our residential streets. Our ward currently has 19 requests for traffic calming in progress or recently completed by Transportation Services. Each of these traffic studies take 6-8 months to complete as well as considerable staff and financial resources.

 

This street-by-street approach has left us with a patchwork of varying speed limits throughout the ward and in some cases, up to three different speed limits on a single street. Many in our ward supported the efforts of Toronto-East York Community Council which voted last year to make all local, residential streets 30 km/h and thought it would apply in their neighbourhoods as well. Since that time, I've heard from growing numbers that want to see this measure in Ward 13.

 

Research indicates that lowering speed limits to 30 km/h on residential streets reduces fatality rates and makes our streets safer – something that has been echoed by the World Health Organization and our own municipal agencies:

 

·  The Board of Health has advocated for lower speeds to reduce injuries and fatalities (April 30, 2012 –HL13.1 – 'Road to Health: A Healthy Toronto by Design'), recommending that the General Manager, Transportation Services consider reducing vehicle speed limits to 30 km/h on residential streets.

 

·  The City of Toronto adopted a new 30 km/h speed limit policy in 2015, recognizing the increased demand for lower speeds without physical traffic calming.

       
At Etobicoke York Community Council, Councillor Grimes (Ward 6) and I moved to have the General Manager, Transportation Services "report on measures to reduce traffic speeds in Wards 6 and 13, including a reduction in speed limits, to 40 km/h and 30 km/h, specifically in school zones, parks and near day cares," noting the dangerous levels of speeding facing our communities.

 

Consulting with Ward 13 residents, I received hundreds of responses in support of making this change. In addition to petitions, emails and calls on the subject, The Bloor West Village Residents' Association, the Bloor West Village BIA, the Junction BIA, the Swansea Historical Society, Cycle Toronto's Ward 13 Chapter and local environmental organisation Green 13 have all submitted letters of support for this measure on behalf of their members.

 

On behalf of the residents of Ward 13, I am requesting that Transportation Services report on the feasibility of reducing the speed limits on residential streets (local roads).

Naming of Public Laneway that Runs on the South Side of St. Clair Avenue West, between Greenlaw and St. Clarens Avenue as "J Deleo Lane"
Origin
(June 13, 2016) Letter from Councillor Cesar Palacio, Ward 17, Davenport
Recommendations

Etobicoke York Community Council request City staff at Engineering and Construction Services to review and approve the naming of the subject laneway to "J Deleo Lane”, given the overwhelming community support in the form of a lengthy petition signed by local residents and business merchants along with neighbouring properties that abut the noted lane, and that the naming proposal complies entirely with the City of Toronto Street Naming Policy.

Summary

The Deleo family first opened shop under the business name Imperial Grocers back in 1956. In 1960, Tre Mari Bakery was established with the experience and expertise from family members that were professional bakers by trade. From the very beginning, the Deleo family were known for assisting recent immigrants to Canada living in the area.

 

As a young adolescent, Joseph Deleo began to work in his family business, and quickly proved himself by helping bake fresh bread daily, serving customers, and delivering groceries to their homes. When not working long hours and learning the bakery trade, he enjoyed playing hockey in the rear public laneway alongside his brothers, cousins, and many friends. In 1981, Joseph married Anne Marie and he helped raise their 4 sons while devoting a significant amount of time to the family business.

 

The bakery business demands long hours of intensive labour, day in/day out from dawn till dusk, including weekends and holidays. He was a selfless person that worked hard at everything he did. The discipline he learned was evident in his work habits and his determination is one of the defining features, which resulted in Tre Mari becoming such a success. Joseph’s entrepreneurial vision, coupled with his excellent customer service and friendly hospitality helped contribute to the success and vitality of our dynamic community, with Tre Mari Bakery becoming the focal point in the neighbourhood along with a destination place for fine Italian products.

 

Under Joseph’s stewardship, Tre Mari Bakery became one of the first businesses to offer a wide range of traditional Italian-Canadian brands, which you will still enjoy today along with the staples that older generation of Italian have bought for years such as amaretti, zeppoli, and sfoglia cake. All of which resulted in the bakery being recognized as a landmark within the Corso Italia Business Improvement Area. Sadly, unexpectedly, and most tragically, Joseph passed away on February 5, 2008, at the young age of 54. Although, this was the most tragic of times for the Deleo Family, it was a rallying point for the anguished family. Joseph’s wife and four boys were the catalysts that helped spearhead the revitalization, evolution, and gentrification of the bakery.

 

In order to commemorate Joseph’s legacy, the Deleo family are requesting to name the public laneway that runs on the south side of St. Clair Avenue West, between Greenlaw and St. Clarens Avenue to “J Deleo Lane”. This lane naming initiative will honour his many years of encouraging, motivating, and inspiring innovation as a local business operator whose roots were firmly planted in the local community.
