Final Report - 333 Dixon Road - Zoning By-law Amendment Application
Public Notice Given
Statutory - Planning Act, RSO 1990
Origin
(February 7, 2013) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Etobicoke York District
Recommendations

The City Planning Division recommends that:

 

1.         City Council amend the former City of Etobicoke Zoning Code, for the lands at 333 Dixon Road substantially in accordance with the draft Zoning By-law Amendment attached as Attachment 4 to this report.

 

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.         Before introducing the necessary Bills to City Council for enactment:

 

a)         Require the Owner to enter into a Section 37 Agreement to provide the following community benefits:

 

i)          Securing the rental tenure of the 55 dwelling units in the existing building for a period of at least 20 years commencing from the date the By-law comes into force and effect. None of the existing rental units or associated parking spaces shall be registered as condominium or any other form of ownership, such as life lease or co-ownerships which provide a right to exclusive possession of a unit, and no application for conversion for non-rental housing purposes, or application to demolish the existing rental units or associated parking spaces can be made during such 20 year period; and

 

ii)         Site improvements to include the construction of an outdoor amenity space with durable fixtures such as benches, seats and garbage/recycling containers for the exclusive use of all residents of the subject site. The design and materials will be secured via the site plan approval process and the costs of any such improvements, as well as the costs of the development shall not be passed on in any form, including increases to the rents, to tenants of the existing rental building.

 

b)         Require the applicant to submit a Functional Servicing Report to the satisfaction of the Executive Director, Construction and Engineering Services, and to provide any improvements that may be required to the City's infrastructure to accommodate the proposed development, as well as obtaining necessary approvals from the Ministry of the Environment for such infrastructure.

 

4.         Prior to the issuance of the first building permit for the development, the Owner shall provide, at its expense and to the satisfaction of the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning, a Construction Management Plan and Tenant Communication Strategy for the development, and agrees to implement same.

Summary

This application proposes 6 semi-detached dwelling units on the north side of Acme Crescent, on a site that contains an existing 6-storey, 55 unit residential building.

 

The proposal for semi-detached dwellings in this location is consistent with the Apartment Neighbourhoods policies of the Official Plan and represents appropriate development for the subject property.  As such, this report reviews and recommends approval of the application to amend the former City of Etobicoke Zoning Code.

Financial Impact

The recommendations in this report have no financial impact.

Request for Direction Report - 361 The West Mall and 24 Eva Road - Zoning By-law Amendment Application
Origin
(February 6, 2013) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Etobicoke York District
Recommendations

The City Planning Division recommends that:

 

1.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor, together with City Planning staff and any other appropriate staff, to oppose the appeal of the Zoning By-law Amendment application for 361 The West Mall and 24 Eva Road, attend any Ontario Municipal Board hearing in opposition to such appeal, and retain such outside experts as the City Solicitor may determine are required to support the position outlined in this report.

 

2.         City Council direct the City Solicitor to request the OMB, in the event the OMB allows the appeal and permits the requested additional height or density, to:

 

(a)        secure the following community benefits, pursuant to Section 37 of the Planning Act:

 

a.         the rental tenure of the existing rental apartment buildings for a minimum of twenty (20) years;

 

b.         improvements to the existing rental apartment buildings to the satisfaction of the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning;

 

c.         a payment in the amount of $1,700,000, (together with any increases to reflect increases in the Construction Price Statistics between July 1, 2013, and the delivery of such payment), for the following:

 

i.          parkland improvements to Dennis Flynn Park, including but not limited to improvements to accommodate additional recreation facilities such as mini-soccer fields, mini-basketball courts as well as improved pedestrian walkways and improved tree planting and park lighting;

 

ii.         public art fund for the local area intended to develop a public art program and public art installations in the area; and

 

iii.        capital improvements to existing non-profit childcare facilities in the area including but not limited to Eatonville Public School.

 

(b)        require the owner to convey to the City, at no cost, lands for the proposed north-south road in accordance with OPA 85 and Official Plan Policy 2.2.3 a).

 

(c)        impose a Holding symbol (H) on any part of the site that does not have direct vehicular access to Eva Road or The West Mall, to be lifted upon completion of the proposed north-south road or permanent closure by MTO of the ramps connecting Eva Road and Highway 427 or other measures to the satisfaction of the Executive Director, Engineering and Construction Services to provide vehicular and servicing access.

 

(d)       require the owner to provide detailed cost estimates and adequate financing for 50% of the cost of constructing the proposed north-south road adjacent to their lands to the satisfaction of the Executive Director, Engineering and Construction Services.

 

(e)        require the owner to enter into an agreement with the City to provide for the landscaping and maintenance, at no cost to the City, of the land to be dedicated for the proposed north-south road until such time as the public road is constructed.

 

3.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor and any other City staff to take such actions as necessary to give effect to the recommendations of this report.  

Summary

The owner of the site at 361 The West Mall and 24 Eva Road has appealed its Zoning By-law Amendment application to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) citing Council's failure to make a decision within the time allotted by the Planning Act.  A Pre-Hearing Conference is scheduled for April 5, 2013, at which time a hearing date will be scheduled.  The purpose of this report is to seek City Council's direction for the City Solicitor to oppose the applicant's proposal at the OMB.

 

The site is currently developed with two, 18 storey (48 m) residential apartment buildings and a two storey covered parking garage, which are to be retained. The application proposes to amend the former City of Etobicoke Zoning Code to permit the construction of two additional 23 storey (71 m) residential towers connected by a 3 to 4 storey podium fronting The West Mall and a third 5 storey (15.8 m) residential building on the eastern side of the property. 

 

The proposal is not supportable in its current form.  The site is located at the periphery of a Mixed Use Areas designation, on the east side of The West Mall.  To the west are lands having Parks and Neighbourhoods designations.  To the east are approved but not fully constructed apartment buildings on the west side of Highway 427.  The proposed siting, height and massing of the proposed 23 storey (71 m) buildings do not provide an adequate transition in scale, massing and height to Dennis Flynn Park and low scale residential uses on the west side of The West Mall.

Financial Impact

There are no financial implications resulting from the adoption of this report.

Intention to Designate under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act - 28 Daisy Avenue
Origin
(December 20, 2012) Report from Director, Urban Design, City Planning Division
Recommendations

The City Planning Division recommends that:

 

1.         City Council state its intention to designate the property at 28 Daisy Avenue (Richard Newborn House) under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

 

2.         If there are no objections to the designation in accordance with Section 29(6) of the Ontario Heritage Act, City Council authorize the City Solicitor to introduce the bill in Council designating the property under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

 

3.         If there are objections in accordance with Section 29(7) of the Ontario Heritage Act, City Council direct the City Clerk to refer the designation to the Conservation Review Board.

 

4.         If the designation is referred to the Conservation Review Board, City Council authorize the City Solicitor and appropriate staff to attend any hearing held by the Conservation Review Board in support of Council's decision on the designation of the property.

Summary

This report recommends that City Council state its intention to designate the property at 28 Daisy Avenue under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.  Located on the northeast corner of Daisy Avenue and Twenty-Sixth Street in Long Branch, the site was on the former City of Etobicoke's heritage inventory and incorporated into the City of Toronto Inventory of Heritage Properties following amalgamation.

 

There is concern in the community about potential alterations to the heritage building.  Following research and evaluation, staff have determined that the property at 28 Daisy Avenue meets Ontario Regulation 9/06, the provincial criteria prescribed for municipal designation under the Ontario Heritage Act.  The designation of the property would enable City Council to manage alterations to the site, enforce heritage property standards and maintenance, and refuse demolition.

Financial Impact

There are no financial implications resulting from the adoption of this report.

Traffic Calming - Purdy Crescent
Origin
(January 21, 2013) Report from the Director, Transportation Services, Etobicoke York District
Recommendations

Transportation Services recommends to Etobicoke York Community Council that:

 

1.         Traffic calming NOT be installed on Purdy Crescent.

Summary

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

 

This report summarizes the results of the traffic calming survey undertaken between October 18, 2012 and November 16, 2012, for owners and occupants on Purdy Crescent. At least 60% of residents polled must favour the speed hump plan. On Purdy Crescent, 68% of respondents indicated their support for the plan. In addition, a minimum survey response rate of 50 per cent plus one is required. On Purdy Crescent, the response rate was just 46 per cent. As a result, installing speed humps is not recommended since the minimum response rate is not achieved.

Financial Impact

Adopting the above-noted recommendation does not result in any financial impact; however, if Community Council decides to approve installing traffic calming devices on Purdy Crescent, the following financial impact will result:

 

1.         The estimated cost for installing two speed humps will be $6,000.00. This can be accommodated within funds allocated by City Council as part of the Transportation Capital Budget, subject to competing priorities and funding availability.

Payment-In-Lieu of Parking - 695 The Queensway
Origin
(January 21, 2013) Report from the Director, Transportation Services - Etobicoke York District
Recommendations

Transportation Services recommends that Etobicoke York Community Council approve:

 

1.         City Council exemption of the applicant at 695 The Queensway from the Etobicoke Zoning Code parking requirement of two parking stalls, subject to a $5,000.00 payment-in-lieu of parking; providing the applicant signs a Payment-In-Lieu of Parking Agreement with the City, to the satisfaction of the City Solicitor.

Summary

This report seeks Council's approval to exempt the applicant from the parking requirement specified in the former City of Etobicoke Zoning Code to provide two additional parking stalls. Instead of accommodating the parking on-site, the applicant has requested a payment-in-lieu of parking to the City in the amount of $5,000.00.

 

The parking exemption is considered appropriate since the two stall shortfall will not have a significant impact on parking conditions in the area.

 

Section 40 of the Planning Act grants Council the authority to approve payment-in-lieu of parking. This application has been made pursuant to the City’s Payment-In-Lieu of Parking Policy, adopted in July 2004. City Council approval is required as this matter has not been delegated.

Financial Impact

The City of Toronto will receive $5,000.00 plus a $300.00 application processing fee. The Toronto Parking Authority’s parking reserve fund will receive the $5,000.00, with Transportation Services receiving the application fee of $300.00.

Report Request on the Feasibility of a West Concrete Campus
Origin
(February 26, 2013) Letter from Councillor Mark Grimes, Ward 6, Etobicoke-Lakeshore
Recommendations
Etobicoke York Community Council request the Economic Development and Culture Division, in consultation with City Planning, Municipal Licensing and Standards, Facilities and Real Estate, Build Toronto, Industry representatives and stakeholders, to explore the feasibility and financial mechanisms to encourage the development of "Concrete Campus West", to assist and promote the relocation and consolidation of concrete production facilities within a state of the art campus with up to date environmental controls and appropriate buffering as necessary.  A report, including potential sites, is requested for the Etobicoke York Community Council meeting of May 14, 2013.
Summary

Concrete Batching Facilities have posed a number of challenges in the South Etobicoke area of Toronto yet are an integral part of the construction industry, requiring a central location within the city to support development being undertaken downtown and in the west end of Toronto.  However, when located close to residential/sensitive uses there may be inherent land use conflicts and, as such, their location requirements need to be addressed. 

 

This is not a new issue to the City.  In 2004 when these conflicts began to emerge in the Fort York Neighbourhood, the City via the then Economic Development Culture and Tourism Division and the Toronto Economic Development Corporation (TEDCO) took a comprehensive look at the establishment of a concrete campus in the Port Lands, undertaken through a recognized Planning process with appropriate community consultation and Council input.   Separately, in 2007 the City finalized an agreement with Toronto Redi-Mix to do a land swap and re-situate a planned concrete batching plant and salt depot from 207 New Toronto Street to 200 Horner Avenue.

 

In South Etobicoke, there is a limited permission for concrete batching facilities.  Two facilities at Judson and New Toronto Streets are grandfathered as permitted uses in an area that was rezoned to prohibit this industrial use because of proximity to sensitive residential land uses. 

 

With these existing conflicts in mind, along with the Port Lands example, action should be taken to review mechanisms to encourage both better environmental controls on these sites, and most importantly, opportunities to promote relocation of these industries to more appropriate lands.
