Request for a Report on the Procedure to Amend Use of the Dufferin Street and Allen Road HOV Lanes to include Multi-passenger Vehicles
Origin
(November 19, 2013) Memo from Councillor Pasternak
Recommendations

Councillor Pasternak recommends that:

 

1.         City Council request the General Manager, Transportation Services, to prepare a report by January 2014 on the procedure to amend the north-bound HOV lanes on Dufferin Street between Steeprock Drive/Overbrook Place and Finch Avenue West and William R. Allen Road between Sheppard Avenue West and Steeprock Drive/Overbrook Place to include all multi-passenger vehicles.

 

2.         City Council request the General Manager, Transportation Services, to prepare a report by January 2014 on the procedure to amend the south-bound HOV lanes on Dufferin Street between Steeprock Drive/Overbrook Place and Finch Avenue West and William R. Allen Road between Sheppard Avenue West and Steeprock Drive/Overbrook Place to include all multi-passenger vehicles.

Summary

Currently Dufferin Street between Steeprock Drive/Overbrook Place and Finch Avenue West and William R. Allen Rd between Sheppard Avenue West and Steeprock Drive/Overbrook Place are designated as HOV lanes that are limited to Buses and Taxis but not other multi-passenger vehicles. Dufferin Street and Allen Road are heavily congested during peak hours and enabling all vehicles with multiple passengers in their vehicles would not only make more efficiently use of the HOV lane but also encourage residents to carpool further reducing the number of vehicles on the road.

(October 31, 2013) Report from the Director, Community Planning, North York District
Recommendations

The City Planning Division recommends that:

 

1.         City Council amend the Yonge-Eglinton Secondary Plan for the lands within the area bounded by Yonge Street, Duplex Avenue, Helendale Avenue, and Orchard View Boulevard substantially in accordance with the draft Official Plan Amendment attached as Attachment 5 to report dated October 31, 2013.

An Area Specific Policy in the Yonge-Eglinton Secondary Plan is appropriate to provide a further layer of policy direction that reinforces and builds on the existing planning framework for the block and reflects the guiding principles arising from the Planning Study. Urban Design Guidelines that include specific guidelines for the public realm, building location and organization including servicing and access, building massing and articulation, and pedestrian amenities are also recommended.

Recommendations

Councillor Robinson recommends that:

 

1.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor to attend the Ontario Municipal Board to uphold the Committee of Adjustment's decision to refuse the minor variances related to 175 Stibbard Avenue (A515/13NY) and to retain outside consultants, if necessary.

Summary

An application for minor variances related to 175 Stibbard Avenue was heard by the North York Panel of the Committee of Adjustment on August 28, 2013.

 

The application entailed the demolition of the existing home and the construction of a new two-storey dwelling. The applicant sought variances related to height, gross floor area and side setbacks.

 

The Committee of Adjustment refused the variance application. The applicant appealed this decision to the Ontario Municipal Board. The community has voiced significant concerns about the impact of these variances, if approved, on the neigbourhood.

Bayview Avenue Design Guidelines Study
Origin
(November 19, 2013) Memo from Councillor Robinson
Recommendations

Councillor Robinson recommends that:

 

1.         The Director, Community Planning, North York District be requested to undertake a study for Bayview Avenue from Highway 401 to Lawrence Avenue East, to review the appropriate development framework for the lots abutting Bayview Avenue.

Summary

I have been working with residents and senior city planning staff to address the serious intensification and development pressure facing Bayview Avenue.

 

Two recent Ontario Municipal Board decisions at 2425 Bayview Avenue and 2500 Bayview Avenue have changed the area's planning context and require a proactive response.

 

At a public meeting in early November, a clear majority of residents voted to undertake a design guidelines study for Bayview Avenue between Lawrence Avenue East and Highway 401.

 

The purpose of the study is to develop a framework to use in evaluating applications for townhouses along this stretch of Bayview with particular attention to setbacks, landscaping, privacy and adjoining land uses, among other things.

Installation of a Second Pedestrian Crossing on Sheppard Avenue West at Senlac Road
Origin
(November 19, 2013) Memo from Councillor Filion
Recommendations

Councillor Filion recommends that:

 

1.         Staff review the installation of a second pedestrian crossing on Sheppard Avenue West at the signalized intersection of Sheppard Avenue West and Senlac Road, and that Staff implement the installation of the required infrastructure as a priority.

Summary

The existing configuration of the signalized intersection at Sheppard Avenue West and Senlac Road is comprised of a pedestrian crossing on Sheppard Avenue West located to the west of Senlac Road, and a pedestrian crossing on Senlac Road located to the north of Sheppard Avenue West.

 

A significant number of children who rely on this crossing are travelling from south of Sheppard Avenue West to either Churchill Public School or Willowdale Middle School. Both schools are located on the east side of Senlac Road. To make this journey, they are required to cross both Sheppard Avenue West and Senlac Road. Further, the upcoming opening of a new school at 1 Botham Road will bring an increase in children crossing Sheppard Avenue West from the north.

 

Parents in the community have considered this intersection unsafe for many years. Transportation Staff agree that placing a second pedestrian crossing on Sheppard Avenue West to the east of Senlac Road would be a desirable solution to these safety concerns.

Representation at an Ontario Municipal Board Hearing for 139 Parkview Avenue
Origin
(November 19, 2013) Memo from Councillor Filion
Recommendations

Councillor Filion recommends that:

 

1.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor to appeal the approval of the minor variances, and authorize the City Solicitor to attend the Ontario Municipal Board hearing in opposition to the Committee of Adjustment's approval of the minor variance with respect to the east side yard setback.

Summary

An application for Minor Variances was submitted by Rubinoff Design Group, on behalf of Bijan Barati, to permit the construction of a new two-storey dwelling at 139 Parkview Avenue. At its meeting of October 9th, 2013, the Committee of Adjustment granted all nine variances, including a variance for a proposed east side yard setback of 0.92 metres.

 

A side yard setback of 0.92 metres is out of character with the surrounding area and would risk setting a precedent that would change the character of the neighbourhood. Side yard setbacks of this size have not previously been allowed on newly developed two storey dwellings in this area.

Representation at an Ontario Municipal Board Hearing for 29 Farrell Avenue
Origin
(November 19, 2013) Memo from Councillor Filion
Recommendations

Councillor Filion recommends that:

 

1.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor to appeal the approval of the minor variances, and authorize the City Solicitor to attend the Ontario Municipal Board hearing in opposition to the Committee of Adjustment's approval of the minor variance with respect to the finished first floor height.

Summary

An application for Minor Variances was submitted by Homeland, on behalf of Maisam Asgarian, to permit the construction of a new two-storey dwelling at 29 Farrell Avenue. At its meeting of November 6th, 2013, the Committee of Adjustment granted all seven variances, including a variance requesting a proposed finished first floor height of 1.3 metres.

 

A finished first floor height of 1.3 metres is more than what has previously been approved in this area under zoning bylaw No. 569-2013. It would risk setting a precedent that would change the character of the neighbourhood and would begin the erosion of the zoning bylaw, which was only recently implemented.
