a.         the proposed townhouse development is a permitted land use under the Apartment Neighbourhood designation in the Official Plan;

 

b.         the proposed development complies with the intent of the Urban Design Guidelines for Infill Townhouses, including the guidelines which are related to: accessibility to public streets, neighbourhood streetscapes, sunlight and sky views, building façade, grade and landscaping;

 

c.         the proposed townhouses are under the permitted zoned height and the overall development marginally exceeds the permitted 2.0 times density by 0.2 times the lot area; and

 

d.         the proposed development includes 1 parking space per unit as required by the Zoning By-law.  Parking is provided in individual integral garages which are accessed from a common driveway located to the rear of each unit.  The front yard of each unit is reserved for landscaping and the approach to the main entrance.

Downtown Tall Buildings Project - Consultant's Study, Public Consultation and Implementation
Origin
(January 27, 2012) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District, and Director, Urban Design
Recommendations

The City Planning Division recommends that:

 

1.         City Council adopt the "Downtown Tall Buildings Vision and Performance Standards Design Guidelines", attached to this report as Attachments 1 through 7 from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District, City Planning  Division and the Director, Urban Design, City Planning Division, dated January 27, 2012.

 

2.         City Council direct staff to use the Downtown Tall Buildings Vision and Performance Standards Design Guidelines in the evaluation of all new and current tall building development proposals falling within the Guideline boundaries. 

 

3.         City Council direct the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning to consolidate the Downtown Tall Buildings Vision and Performance Standards Design Guidelines with the city-wide tall building guidelines entitled "Design Criteria for the Review of Tall Building Proposals" when these city-wide guidelines are further revised and modified in the Second Quarter of 2012.  

 

4.         City Council direct the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning to bring forward a staff report identifying future implementation options for the Downtown Tall Buildings Vision and Performance Standards, which include, but are not limited to, amendments to the City's Official Plan, Zoning By-law and use of other planning tools.

 

5.         City Council approve the addition of a new "Downtown Design Review District" and add Tall Building site plan and zoning amendment applications located in the Downtown to the City's Design Review Panel process for those applications that contain "significant public realm impacts" as a result of their location, scale, form or architectural quality.

Summary

The purpose of this report is to inform City Council of the “Tall Buildings, Inviting Change in Downtown Toronto” Consultant’s Study, including public consultation outcomes, and to seek City Council adoption of a set of Vision, Height and Typology Criteria and Performance Standards to guide Downtown Tall Buildings development. The report also identifies further implementation options for the criteria and performance standards noted above.

 

City Planning Division commissioned Urban Strategies Incorporated to complete a study within Downtown Toronto that identifies where tall buildings should be located, how high they should be and how they should behave towards each other and the public streets and spaces around them.

 

The “Tall Buildings, Inviting Change in Downtown Toronto” Consultant's Study  follows previously completed planning studies which looked at the behaviour of tall buildings, but not their appropriate location, building upon pre-existing city-wide tall building design guidelines known as the “Design Criteria for Review of Tall Building Proposals”.

 

In addition to addressing the issue of appropriate site location for Downtown tall buildings, the Consultant's Study also provides performance standards to be applied in the assessment and approval of Downtown tall building development. These performance standards relate to the design, spacing, placement and orientation of tall buildings. They have been derived from a detailed on-the-ground assessment of local conditions within Downtown Toronto, through selective testing of chosen sites and through an assessment of best practices relating to tall building development in cities from across North America.

 

The Consultant's Study area is bounded by Bathurst Street on the west, the rail corridor north of Dupont Street on the north, the Don Valley Parkway on the east and the Toronto Harbour on the south. Secondary Planning Areas falling within this Study area boundary do not form part of the Consultant's Study recommendations.

 

The Consultant's Study recommendations with regard to Downtown tall building locations, heights, typologies and performance standards have been revised by staff following public consultation and further staff assessment, as will be detailed in this report. It is staff's intention to consolidate the city-wide tall building design guidelines with the Downtown tall building design guidelines into one comprehensive document which is able to accommodate locational criteria and performance standards relating to unique challenges faced by tall building development in the Downtown in the Second Quarter of 2012.

Financial Impact

There are no financial implications.

Recommendations

The Chief Building Official and Executive Director, Toronto Building recommends that with respect to the application by Strategic Outdoor for four variances regarding a third party sign on the premises municipally known as 985 College Street:

Summary

Transportation Services is requesting authority to correct conflicting parking regulations on the east and west sides of Gladstone Avenue, between Bloor Street West and Dufferin Park Avenue.  This amendment will resolve existing contradictory regulations as currently set out in the traffic by-law and at the same time provide legal authority to enforce the signed regulations.

Financial Impact

Funds to undertake the necessary signage adjustments in the estimated amount of $800.00 are contained in the Transportation Services Division 2012 Interim Operating Budget.

 

Implementation of this proposal will require installing a new parking machine on the west side of Gladstone Avenue.  The Toronto Parking Authority has advised that the estimated cost of this work is approximately $17,500.00, for which funds are available in 2012 Interim Operating Budget.

7.         Rescind the "No Parking at Anytime" regulation, on the west side of Tweedsmuir Avenue, from a point 30.5 metres north of St. Clair Avenue West to a point 83.5 metres further north.

Summary

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

 

Transportation Services is requesting approval to implement a 10-minute maximum parking regulation on the west side of Tweedsmuir Avenue, fronting Holy Rosary Catholic School.

 

Also, in order to accommodate Wheel Trans requirements and to address the need for a location where motorists can temporarily stop their vehicle to pick-up and drop-off passengers at the adjacent church, we are also requesting approval for a passenger loading zone, on the west side of Tweedsmuir Avenue, fronting Holy Rosary Catholic Church.

 

The implementation of a passenger loading zone on the Tweedsmuir Avenue flankage of Holy Rosary Catholic Church will provide an area where extended parking is not permitted, but enables a Wheel Trans vehicle or other passenger motor vehicle to temporarily stop to pick-up or drop-off passengers.

Financial Impact

The estimated cost of installing signs to implement the amended parking regulations is approximately $1,200.00.   Funds to undertake this work are available within the Transportation Services Division 2012 Operating Budget.

Parking Amendment and One-Way Operation - Park Avenue
Origin
(January 12, 2012) Report from the Director, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District
Recommendations

Transportation Services recommends that the Toronto and East York Community Council:

 

1.         Approve implementation of a one-way westbound operation on Park Avenue, between Beech Avenue and Willow Avenue.

 

2.         Rescind the "12:01 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. Permit Parking, All times" regulation on the north side of Park Avenue, between Beech Avenue and Willow Avenue.

 

3.         Implement a "12:01 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. Permit Parking, All times" regulation on the south side of Park Avenue, between Beech Avenue and Willow Avenue.

Summary

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

 

Transportation Services is seeking authority to relocate parking to the south side of Park Avenue and implement one-way westbound operation.

 

Relocating parking to the south side of Park Avenue would result in four more parking spaces, for a total of 12 spaces.  It would also eliminate the problem of parked vehicles blocking the driveways to the homes on the north side of the road. 

 

Implementing one-way westbound operation on Park Avenue would allow vehicles to park facing westbound on the south side of the road, thereby eliminating the need for potentially unsafe westbound to eastbound u-turns when parking.  It would also create a clockwise traffic pattern from Willow Avenue to Beech Avenue for area residents.  This may inconvenience some residents.

Financial Impact

Funds to undertake the necessary signage adjustments in the estimated amount of $1,000.00 are contained in the Transportation Services Division 2012 Interim Operating Budget.

Traffic Amendments - Area Bounded by O'Connor Drive, Coxwell Avenue, Donlands Avenue and Mortimer Avenue
Origin
(January 26, 2012) Report from the Director, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District
Recommendations

Transportation Services recommends that Toronto and East York Community Council:

 

1.         Approve a 40 km/h speed limit on the streets listed in "Appendix A" attached to the revised report dated January 26, 2012, from the Director, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District.

 

2.         Approve the installation of all-way stop control at Plains Road and Lankin Boulevard.

Summary

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

 

Transportation Services has reviewed reducing the existing 50 km/h speed limits to 40 km/h on various streets in the area bounded by O'Connor Drive, Coxwell Avenue, Donlands Avenue and Mortimer Avenue; the installation of all-way stop controls, where necessary; and reducing the number of speed humps in the traffic calming plan for Plains Road.

 

Speed limits can be reduced to 40 km/h on the following roadways as the Warrants for implementing a 40 km/h Maximum Speed Limit Zone have been satisfied: Donmore Avenue, Inwood Avenue, Frankdale Avenue, Kimbourne Avenue, Monarch Park Avenue, Roosevelt Road, Durant Avenue, Barfield Avenue, McKayfield Road, St. Hubert Avenue, Derwyn Road, Northridge Avenue, and Milton Road.  For consistency, we are also recommending that the speed limits be reduced to 40 km/h on the following roadways: Linsmore Avenue, Dieppe Road and Judith Drive.

Financial Impact

All costs associated with the introduction of a 40 km/h speed limit on the above noted roadways and the installation of stop sign controls on Plains Road at Lankin Boulevard, in the amount of $4,500.00, are included within the Transportation Services Division’s 2012 Operating Budget.

 

If Toronto and East York Community Council decides speed humps on Plains Road, between Donlands Avenue and Coxwell Avenue would be beneficial, the following financial impact will result:

 

1.         The estimated cost for installing 6 speed humps would be $18,000.00.  Funds in the amount of $200,000 have been allocated in the Transportation Services 2012 Capital Budget for traffic calming initiatives.  Installing speed humps on this section of Plains Road would be subject to competing priorities and funding availability.

Transportation Services recommends that:

 

1.         City Council approve the installation of traffic control signals at the intersection of Adelaide Street East and Frederick Street.

 

2.         City Council rescind, when traffic control signals are installed, the parking regulations outlined in Appendix "A", attached to the report from the Director of Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District dated January 27, 2012.

 

3.         City Council approve, when traffic control signals are installed, the parking regulations outlined in Appendix "B", attached to the report from the Director of Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District dated January 27, 2012.

Summary

Transportation Services is requesting authority from City Council to install traffic control signals at the intersection of Adelaide Street East and Frederick Street.

 

The installation of traffic control signals at this location will enhance safety for pedestrians and motorists. This installation will result in the loss of approximately 8 parking spaces on Adelaide Street East and Frederick Street.

Financial Impact

The estimated cost of installing traffic control signals at the intersection of Adelaide Street East and Frederick Street is approximately $141,000.00. Funds in the amount of $3.47 million have been approved in the 2012 Transportation Services Capital Budget for installation of traffic control signals. This work would be subject to competing priorities and available funding.

Installation of Traffic Control Signals - Gerrard Street East/St. Matthews Road/Blackburn Street
Origin
(January 19, 2012) Report from the Director, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District
Recommendations

Transportation Services recommends that:

 

1.         City Council approve the installation of traffic control signals at the intersection of Gerrard Street East/St. Matthews Road/Blackburn Street.

 

2.         City Council approve the removal of the existing pedestrian crossover (PXO) at the intersection of Gerrard Street East/St. Matthews Road/Blackburn Street.

 

3.         City Council prohibit southbound through traffic movements from St. Matthews Road to Blackburn Street and northbound through traffic movements from Blackburn Street to St. Matthews Road at Gerrard Street East.

 

4.         City Council prohibit parking on both sides of Blackburn Street from Gerrard Street East to a point 20 metres south.

 

5.         City Council amend the existing one-hour maximum parking limit on both sides of Blackburn Street between Gerrard Street East and Mount Stephen Street to operate between a point 20 metres south of Gerrard Street East and Mount Stephen Street.

Summary

Transportation Services is seeking authority from City Council to install traffic control signals at the intersection of Gerrard Street East/St. Matthews Road/Blackburn Street to replace the existing pedestrian crossover (PXO).  Transportation Services is also seeking approval to prohibit north and south bound traffic movements through the intersection.

 

The installation of traffic control signals at this location will satisfy conditions of site plan approval for the Bridgepoint Hospital redevelopment while providing a safe environment for both vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

 

The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) operates a transit service on Gerrard Street East.

Financial Impact

All costs associated with the installation of the traffic control signals at the intersection of Gerrard Street East/St. Matthews Road/Blackburn Street and the removal of the existing PXO are to be borne by the developer.

Origin
(February 10, 2012) Letter from Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam, Ward 27, Toronto Centre-Rosedale
Recommendations

That Toronto and East York Community Council:

 

1.         Direct the Chief Planner and City Solicitor to report back to the March 20, 2012, TEYCC meeting, on the impact to community planning on shadow, wind, traffic, transportation, heritage, streetscape, technical and park systems as it pertains to Committee of Adjustment rulings on additional height requests of 2 to 27 storeys as minor variances on recently approved rezoning applications.

 

2.         Direct the Chief Planner and City Solicitor report back to the March 20, 2012 TEYCC meeting, on planning and legal mechanisms that can be used by the City to legally procure and secure the strata and air rights as a community benefit one metre above the pending approved height of any application while in the full rezoning process, outside of the Committee of Adjustments.

Summary

It has come to my attention that the Committee of Adjustments is being used to undermine the City Planning Division and community interests.  Applications for minor variance consideration are submitted by developers often requesting additional height, anywhere from 2 to 27 additional storeys, on recently approved rezoning applications or the as-of-right height.

 

Committee of Adjustment applications of this nature lend to the public perception that the legitimate community planning process is stage-managed by developers proposing that such additional constitutes a "minor variance" shortly after a significant rezoning for new density has been granted at the Toronto and East York Community Council.  Although some community benefits may be offered and secured, it is often a last resort settlement to avoid a new OMB appeal, where the developer's interest will most likely prevail, and overturn City planners' professional advice.

Ontario Municipal Board Hearing - The Inter-Steer Tavern, 357 Roncesvalles Avenue - Existing Establishment, Increase in Capacity - Boulevard Patio
Origin
(February 13, 2012) Letter from Councillor Gord Perks, Ward 14, Parkdale-High Park
Recommendations

That:

 

1.         City Council direct the City Solicitor and the appropriate staff to attend at the Ontario Municipal Board hearing to oppose the variances sought for 357 Roncesvalles Avenue and the decision of the Toronto and East York Panel of the Committee of Adjustment granting those variances.

Summary

On November 30, 2011, the Toronto and East York Committee of Adjustment approved the variances required to legalize and maintain the rear yard patio in conjunction with the existing restaurant, Inter-Steer Tavern at 357 Roncesvalles Avenue, and to provide relief from the parking space requirement under the Zoning By-law, subject to the following conditions:

 

1.         The approval of Minor Variance Application A0659/11TEY shall extend for a term of one year expiring on November 30, 2012.

 

2.         No music, artificial or amplified sound shall be played on, or shall be projected into the patio area.

 

3.         The patio’s opening hours shall be restricted to 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

 

The variances are to permit the rear yard patio located on a lot zoned Mixed Commercial Residential that is located less than 10 m from the adjacent Residential zone, as required under Zoning By-law 438-86. The other variance is to allow zero on-site parking where one space is required under the Zoning By-law.

 

On August 13, 2008 the Committee of Adjustment granted similar variances for the property, with a condition that the approval of the variances would expire on September 2, 2009. Since this date, the operation of the restaurant without a parking space and the operation of the rear patio have contravened the Zoning By-law.

 

The current Committee of Adjustment decision has been appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) by residents.

 

City Planning staff submitted a report to the Committee recommending refusal of the requested variances. In their report staff recommended refusal of the proposal as it creates a significant land use conflict with nearby residential uses related to noise and privacy. The intent of the Official Plan would not be maintained by the proposal which conflicts with, and does not preserve, the character of the neighbourhood. The proposed patio encroaches into the 10 m separation distance from a residential property required under By-law 438-86. The proposal is not minor and does not meet the four tests used to assess minor variance applications.

 

The purpose of this motion is to seek Council's direction for the City Solicitor, together with City Planning and other appropriate staff, to oppose the decision of the Toronto and East York panel of the Committee of Adjustment that granted the variances. A one day hearing has been set for March 21, 2012, at the Ontario Municipal Board.
