Toronto Olympic Bid Decision
Under Council's Procedures, City Council can receive or refer Administrative Inquiries and Answers, without debate.
The City Manager has submitted an Answer to this Inquiry (IA11.2a)
Mayor Rob Ford has submitted an Answer to this Inquiry (IA11.2b)
Summary

Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam has submitted the following Administrative Inquiry:

 

“I am submitting this Administrative Inquiry under Municipal Code S27-61 to seek information about the City's decision not to bid to host the 2020 Olympic Games. I am requesting a response from the City Manager and the Mayor to the following questions. This matter is of great enough significance that I believe it should have been presented to Council for discussion and deliberation in the first place.

 

The simple fact that the deadline for submissions passed without an expression of interest from the City of Toronto in not the main issue.  A passive non-decision is one thing, but having one Member of Council actively saying "no" and having it accepted as a final dictum is quite another. My chief concern is that a presentation was given and decision was made by the Mayor and accepted by staff without the benefit of Council's input. The Mayor and staff have a clear right not to support the bid, but for something as significant as this, it should have been brought to Council in the interest of open discussion and transparency.

 

City Council openly investigated, debated and voted on the 1996 and 2008 Olympic bids in addition to the 2015 Pan American Games.  The media, community and business groups, and general public were involved in those city-wide discussions lead by three different Mayors from those respective governments.  Unfortunately, Toronto City Council did not have this same opportunity to thoughtfully consider 2020 Olympic bid.

 

In the spirit of transparency and openness, then, I ask the following questions of Mayor Ford and the City Manager:

 

A.        OF MAYOR FORD

 

1.         Did you have meetings or discussions with representatives of the Canadian Olympic Committee or any working group, or proponents interested in pursuing a bid for the Olympic Games, or representatives of other levels of government before deciding on behalf of City Council to reject the option to bid on them?

 

2.         If so, when and with whom were these meetings held, and what information was provided about the cultural, social and financial impact of hosting the Games, as well as the possible long-term benefits and liabilities?

 

3.         Did you advise staff unilaterally that there would be no bid for the Games?

 

4.         Why was city council not informed, consulted, or advised of the Olympic proposal?

 

5.         Why was the general public not informed, consulted, or advised of the Olympic proposal?

 

B.        OF THE CITY MANAGER

 

1.         Were presentations made with City Staff in attendance by representatives of the Olympic Committee or working group or proponents interested in pursuing a bid for the Olympic Games?

 

2.         If so, when were these meetings held, and what information was provided about the cultural and financial impact of hosting the Games, as well as the long-term benefits and liabilities?

 

3.         Were City Staff directed by the Mayor or his office not to pursue a bid for the Olympic Games?

 

4.         Would you consider a decision to submit or reject a bid for the Olympic Games a decision most appropriately made by City Council?

Confidential Attachment - The receiving of advice that is subject to solicitor-client privilege
Committee Recommendations

The Licensing and Standards Committee recommends that:

 

1.         City Council amend Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 545, Licensing, Article XX, Pet Shops as per Appendix A of the report (May 13, 2011), from the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards with the following additions:

 

a.         Section 545-256 (C).  Every keeper shall provide the purchaser of a cat or dog, the business name and address information concerning dogs and cats to be kept in the register as outlined in 545-256 (a). Every keeper shall post, in a conspicuous place a notice provided by Municipal Licensing and Standards Division, advising customers of the required content of the register.

 

b.         City Council require that pet stores provide monthly health assessment reports from a licensed vet (unless the cat or dog is held less than a month) on cats and dogs kept in the store and to keep records on all cats and dogs that receive vet care.

 

c.         City Council require pet stores to buy cats and dogs from reputable breeders certified by the City of Toronto (including registered Humane Society, registered shelter or rescue group, municipal animal shelter) and provide proof of where the animals were purchased.

 

2.         City Council request that the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards work with the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (OSPCA) Investigation Unit on a continual basis to determine if any information exists related to the existence of puppy and kitten mills in Toronto; whether any City of Toronto pet shops are obtaining these dog and cats supplies from mills; and that staff take the appropriate enforcement action if these issues are uncovered.

 

3.         City Council request that the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards take appropriate action, up to and including a report to the Licensing Tribunal recommending license revocation, if pet stores are found to purchase animals from puppy mills.

 

4.         City Council request that the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards encourage residents to report the knowledge of any operating puppy / kitty mills in Toronto and that if the violations are substantiated, appropriate enforcement action be taken and maximum fines be requested.

 

5.         City Council request that the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards investigate sales of dogs and cats through home-based operations; including potential zoning and licensing infractions.

Origin
(May 13, 2011) Report from the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards
Summary

The purpose of this report is to examine whether banning the sale of cats and dogs in pet shops and other retail outlets is an appropriate way to deal with concerns that members of the public submitted to the Licensing and Standards Committee.  The submissions proposed this ban in order to address the number of unwanted pets, impulse purchases of cats and dogs in pet stores, the supply and demand for dogs from puppy mills, the overpopulation of feral cats as well as the concerns about the care and treatment of cats and dogs kept in pet stores for sale.

 

Municipal Licensing and Standards recommends amendments to Article XX, Pet Shops of Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 545, Licensing to clarify requirements for pet shop keepers.  In addition, MLS will ensure that establishments are regularly inspected for compliance.  MLS does not recommend an outright ban on the sale of cats and/or dogs, which could have a significant negative economic impact on pet shop owners.

 

The City Solicitor was consulted in the preparation of this report.

Committee Decision Advice and Other Information

The Executive Committee requested Waterfront Toronto to provide information to City Council, at its meeting on September 21, 2011, on the costs of the Don Mouth Environmental Assessment Refined List of Alternatives, including flood protection, soil remediation, infrastructure improvements and other matters related to the cost of implementation.

Origin
(August 22, 2011) Report from the City Manager
Summary

The purpose of this report is to set in place a new direction to move forward with flood protection and revitalization activities in the Port Lands. The report identifies issues with the current revitalization strategy and recommends a new governance structure and shareholder direction for the City of Toronto Economic Development Corporation ("TEDCO"), currently conducting business under the name Toronto Port Lands Company ("TPLC").

 

The area at the east end of the Toronto Harbour, south of Lake Shore Boulevard East and west of Leslie Street contain about 404 hectares (1,000 acres) of land, much of it under-utilized. The revitalization of this entire area is currently coordinated by the Toronto Waterfront Revitalization Corporation ("Waterfront Toronto"). Within this area, known as the "Port Lands", the City through TPLC owns 170 hectares (420 acres) of land, which is a significant City asset. The Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") among the City, Waterfront Toronto and TPLC signed in 2006 envisioned that the Port Lands would be transformed incrementally over a 25-year period.

 

In 2010, City Council endorsed the Don Mouth Naturalization and Port Lands Flood Protection Project Environmental Assessment which proposed flood protection for the Port Lands by creating three outlets across City-owned land. The cost of implementing the flood protection component of this project was estimated to be $634 million in 2010 dollars, excluding costs for land remediation and soil removal. The existing continuous land and streets would be separated into three redevelopment areas by the proposed redesign of the Don River. This would have the effect of limiting development potential on TPLC lands.

 

The proposed flood protection measures for the Port Lands are currently unfunded. Without flood protection, significant revitalization cannot occur.  Staff recommend that TPLC be granted authority to explore private sector and other options to front end infrastructure and flood protection costs in order to unlock development potential within the Port Lands.

 

Port Lands revitalization activities are subject to a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") among the City, Waterfront Toronto and TPLC. This report recommends that City Council direct the City Manager to provide notice of the City's intent to renegotiate the MOU and enter into discussions with Waterfront Toronto, the Province of Ontario and the Government of Canada regarding their commitment to continue the revitalization of the Port Lands and alternative options to achieve this objective.

 

This report also recommends that the current transitional Board of Directors of TPLC be replaced with a strategically composed board of City Councillors, citizens and City staff in order to implement an expanded role for TPLC in the Port Lands.

 

Finally, this report recommends a framework for the assessment of alternative finance, area planning and development options for the Port Lands. A subsequent report will provide an implementation strategy recommended by the new TPLC Board.

4.        City Council authorize the Chief Corporate Officer to (i) declare the Property as surplus to the City's needs, and (ii) take all necessary steps to comply with the City's real estate disposal process, as set out in Chapter 213 of the City of Toronto Municipal Code.

 

5.         City Council authorize the City Manager or his designate to negotiate and to execute on behalf of the City a servicing agreement and ancillary documentation (the Servicing Agreement) with the YMCA of Greater Toronto for the operation of the facility based substantially on the terms and conditions sent out in Appendix "C" of the report (September 1, 2011) from the Executive Director, Social Development, Finance and Administration, and on other terms and conditions deemed appropriate by the City Manager, in a form acceptable to the City Solicitor.

Committee Decision Advice and Other Information

The Executive Committee requested the City Manager to report directly to Council on what terms and conditions will be in the Major Terms and Conditions of the Grant Agreement between the City of Toronto and the Y.M.C.A. to ensure that the Agency Rental Space and the Community Hub remain available for these agencies after the initial 20 year period at occupancy costs that will permit their continued used of this space.

Origin
(September 1, 2011) Report from the Executive Director, Social Development, Finance and Administration
Summary

The purpose of this report is to obtain authority to acquire the northerly portion of 1251 Bridletowne Circle (the Property) from the Toronto Lands Corporation (TLC) for the development of a multi-service community hub in the underserved neighbourhood of Steeles-L'Amoreaux in northern Scarborough. The subject Property is to the north of the Timothy Eaton Business and Technical Institute which the Toronto District School Board declared surplus to its needs in August 2010.

 

This report recommends that the City acquire 5.22 acres of land as part of a Public Sector-Community Sector Initiative between the City of Toronto, the YMCA of Greater Toronto (YMCA) and United Way Toronto. The City would then declare the Property surplus transfers the land to the YMCA as a grant to purpose-build an approximate 100,000 square foot multi-service facility that will house (1) the YMCA (2) rental space for community-based agencies that provide social services (Agency Rental Space), and (3) rental space to The Scarborough Hospital for health services. The YMCA will construct, own, and operate this new facility. In exchange for the land, as property owner and project manager for the new facility, the YMCA will direct $2 million (approximately one-third of the land value) towards construction of the Agency Rental Space.  The YMCA will recover this amount in rent from The Scarborough Hospital for the portion of the land the Hospital will occupy. As part of their Community Hub Strategy, United Way Toronto will contribute an additional $3 million towards the construction of the Agency Rental Space pending the United Way's final internal review and approval.

 

As the landlord, the YMCA will ensure that the the Agency Rental Space is available for 20 years. The square footage and build out of the Agency Rental Space will commensurate with the value of the City and United Way's combined contributions.

 

This new Public Sector-Community Sector collaboration will result in the creation of a large new community infrastructure in Scarborough. The cost of the Property is $5.942 million which was previously approved by City Council. Having the YMCA act as the project lead eliminates construction and operating costs for the City.

Origin
(August 22, 2011) Report from the Treasurer
Summary

This report deals with tax appeal applications made to the Treasurer pursuant to sections 323 and 325 of the City of Toronto Act, 2006 (COTA).  Section 323 permits Council to cancel, reduce or refund taxes in cases when, during the year, a property undergoes changes such as when it is destroyed by fire or demolished, becomes exempt from taxation, or is reclassified due to a change in use.  Under section 325 of the COTA, taxpayers can request a cancellation, reduction or refund of taxes when an error in the assessment roll is identified which results in an overcharge.

 

The legislation requires Council to hold a public meeting where applicants may make a submission in defence of their position.  Council has delegated authority to hold such public meetings to the Government Management Committee.

 

Staff have mailed Notices of Hearing to affected taxpayers advising of the upcoming hearing before the Government Management Committee.

Amendment to the Agreement between the City of Toronto and Zylog Systems (Canada) Ltd. for TalentFlow Software
Committee Recommendations

The Government Management Committee forwards this item to City Council without recommendation.

Origin
(August 30, 2011) Report from the Executive Director, Human Resources, General Manager, Toronto Employment and Social Services (TESS) and Director, Purchasing and Materials Management Division
Summary

TalentFlow software is currently used by the City's Human Resources Division and Toronto Employment & Social Services (TESS) Division to provide an e-Recruitment system that streamlines and simplifies the City’s recruitment processes. TalentFlow ensures City employees and the public have access to job opportunities with the Toronto Public Service. TalentFlow also facilitates and automates recruitment processes for community employers who partner with TESS to provide employment opportunities and programs for the unemployed or underemployed residents of Toronto.  The purpose of this report is to request authority to amend and extend the existing agreement from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2014 with Zylog Systems (Canada) Ltd. (Zylog) to provide for additional customization requirements and for on-going annual maintenance and hosting fees for the TalentFlow System for a total increased amount not to exceed $887,500.00 net of all taxes.

 

Zylog is the single source (see explanation on page 5) for TalentFlow Systems and has sole access to the proprietary intellectual property (source code) which is essential for the provision of further customization requirements, for on-going annual maintenance and for technical support for this system.  There is no other vendor or reseller that can perform these services on the TalentFlow software.  The disadvantages and risks associated with pursuing an RFP to acquire a new vendor to provide maintenance, hosting, technical support and customizations are detailed in the Issue Background section of this report.

 

TalentFlow was acquired by the Human Resources Division through Request for Quotation (RFQ) 3405-06-3448 in 2006, and was the low bid meeting specification as a result of the competitive process. The pricing offered by Zylog for the additional customizations and ongoing annual maintenance and support is reduced to levels at or below the original pricing submitted in the RFQ, and is fair and reasonable. In July 2011, independent technology research consultants, Gartner, Inc., provided specific market analysis to the City confirming that Zylog's pricing for the City for TalentFlow is competitive and in the low end of the market range for the provision of similar services to organizations of comparable size and scope. Further, the existing legal Agreement between Zylog and TESS binds Zylog to provide the City with discounted rates for their licensing, hosting and customization services for up to four (4) further years at the discretion of the City ending December 31, 2014.

 

Zylog has not increased its maintenance or hosting fees to the City since 2007 and in fact provided a further discounted price to the City when TESS contracted with Zylog for its use of TalentFlow in 2010.  Zylog has demonstrated their commitment to ensure that costs to the City for TalentFlow (use, hosting, customization and support) are reduced to levels at or below the original pricing submitted in the RFQ, and that these costs are fair and reasonable and representative of the required work.

 

This amendment to the Agreement with Zylog requires Council approval since the total contract period exceeds five (5) years in length. The recommendations are in accordance with the City of Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 71 – Financial Control, Section 71-11.1 (proposed commitment costs exceed the original funding by more than $500,000.00 excluding all taxes).

TalentFlow ensures City employees and the public are aware of job opportunities with the Toronto Public Service.

Zylog is the single source for TalentFlow Systems and has sole access to the proprietary intellectual property (source code) which is essential for the provision of further customization requirements, for on-going annual maintenance and for technical support for this system.  There is no other vendor or reseller that can perform these services on the TalentFlow software.  The disadvantages and risks associated with pursuing an RFP to acquire a new vendor to provide maintenance, hosting, technical support and customizations are detailed in the Issue Background section of this report.

The proposed pricing is reduced to levels at or below the original pricing submitted in the RFQ, and is fair and reasonable. TalentFlow pricing was compared and was shown to be competitive, particularly in light of its advantages and superior functionality. Further, the existing Agreement between Zylog and TESS binds Zylog to provide the City with discounted rates for their licensing, hosting and customization services for up to four (4) further years at the discretion of the City.

 

Zylog has not increased its maintenance and hosting fees to the City since 2007 and in fact provided a further discounted price to the City when TESS contracted with Zylog for its use of TalentFlow in 2010.  Zylog has demonstrated their commitment to ensure that costs to the City for TalentFlow (use, hosting, customization and support) are reduced to levels at or below the original pricing submitted in the RFQ, and that these costs are fair and reasonable and representative of the required work.

Implementation of a Fixed Fine System for Parking Tickets
Communication GM7.9.8 has been submitted on this Item.
Committee Recommendations

The Government Management Committee recommends that:

 

1.         City Council approve the implementation of a Fixed Fine System for all parking ticket offences, other than accessible parking offences, where a parking ticket proceeding results in a conviction after a defendant in court either pleads guilty or is found guilty.

 

2.         Council approve that the Fixed Fine Amounts be set equal to the presently-established Set Fines (the dollar amount that appears on the face of the ticket), with the Fixed Fine Amounts to apply where a parking ticket proceeding results in a conviction after a defendant in court either pleads guilty or is found guilty.

 

3.         City Council request the City Solicitor prepare and present to Council the necessary amending by-laws.

 

4.         City Council request the City Solicitor make the necessary application to the Regional Senior Judge for new set fine orders.

 

5.         City Council receive the report (August 30, 2011) from the Treasurer and the City Solicitor

Origin
(June 13, 2011) Report from the Treasurer and the City Solicitor
Summary

This report recommends the introduction of a Fixed Fine system for parking offences (excluding accessible/disabled parking offences).  A fixed fine system will help to optimize the use of the City's courts by reducing the number of trials that must be scheduled for parking ticket recipients who request a trial but who do not intend to dispute the charge and hope simply to obtain a reduced fine amount, or who request a trial in hope that the issuing officer will not attend court and the charges will be withdrawn.  Making more efficient use of the available court capacity for parking tickets will in turn reduce the time to trial for parking ticket recipients who wish to have a trial.

 

A fixed fine will apply where a parking ticket recipient requests a trial, and the trial results in a conviction, (i.e., the defendant either pleads guilty or is found guilty at trial).  Fixed fine amounts would be $12.75 higher than the existing set fine amount that appears on the face of the ticket.  The fixed fine amount parallels the existing structure set out in the Provincial Offences Act that allows $12.75 in court costs to be added to a parking ticket fine where a trial has been requested and the defendant fails to appear in court.  Where a parking ticket recipient requests a trial and is found not guilty, no fine is imposed.

 

This report also recommends reducing the set fine amount for accessible parking offences (previously referred to as disabled parking offences), from $450.00 to $300.00, which is the minimum fine which the City of Toronto Act, 2006 requires for that offence.

2.         City Council direct that in accordance with Section 162-2A(3) of Chapter 162, Public Notice, that publishing this item on the agenda in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 27, Council Procedures is, due to the urgent nature of this matter, considered to be adequate public notice of the abovementioned amendment to Chapter 693, Article II, Election Signs.

 

I am concerned that this item was before the Committee for deputations before the Clerk had given notice, according to Municipal Code Chapter 162, Notice, Public.  The Clerk posted notice on September 9, 2011.  Out of an abundance of caution, I as Chair of the Licensing and Standards Committee am requesting that the Committee re-open LS7.4 for consideration and deputations now that notice has been given.

Origin
(June 17, 2011) Member Motion from City Council
Summary

City Council on June 14 and 15, 2011, referred Motion MM9.2 to the Parks and Environment Committee.

 

In May 2010, the City of Toronto voted unanimously that it believes the Rouge Valley watershed is of national significance and requested that the federal and provincial governments establish a Rouge Valley National Park in order to protect the extraordinary wealth contained within the Toronto, York and Durham areas of the Park.

 

In March 2011 the Prime Minister of Canada promised that, if elected, his party would create a near urban national park in Toronto's Rouge Valley.

 

In June 2011, the Federal Government's throne speech confirmed that the Federal Government would indeed create a Rouge Valley National Park in the Rouge Valley.

 

The Rouge Park contains an extraordinary wealth of locally, provincially and nationally rare species including 225 species of birds, 55 species of fish, 19 species of amphibians, the largest concentration of native archaeological sites in the Greater Toronto Area and over 400 species of plants including rare Carolinian forests that have been identified by the World Wildlife Fund of Canada as having national importance.

Communication PW7.6.13 has been submitted on this Item.
Committee Recommendations

The Public Works and Infrastructure Committee recommends that:

 

1.         City Council direct that the prioritization of Basement Flooding Protection Program projects be consistent with the principle that the greatest number of properties are protected as soon as possible within approved funding envelopes and coordinated with other City capital programs.

 

2.         City Council direct that projects identified through completed Environmental Assessments in the 32 identified Chronic Basement Flooding Study Areas,  proceed to detailed design and construction, if the cost to benefiting property, as determined during the preliminary design phase, is less than or equal to $32,000.

 

3.         City Council direct the General Manager, Toronto Water to submit an updated five year list of projects, through the annual Capital Budget submission process, where Class Environmental Assessment studies have been completed, and the projects be prioritized in conformance with Recommendations 1 and 2, and where the first two years of projects will be identified for construction and the following three years of projects will be subject to confirmation for implementation through the preliminary design phases where cost estimates will be refined, and the project scheduling will be coordinated with Transportation Services and other utilities.

 

4.         City Council approve the following changes to the coordination of Transportation Services’ Program within Basement Flooding Study Areas:

 

a.         Road resurfacing and reconstruction works that are not coincident with projects on the projected five year Basement Flooding Protection Program list, may proceed in accordance with Transportation Services' standard project prioritization process; and

 

b.         Road resurfacing and reconstruction works that are coincident with projects on the projected five year list should be deferred.

 

5.         City Council direct that existing sanitary and storm sewer design criteria continue to apply to road and sewer reconstruction projects outside of currently identified basement flooding study areas, but be consistent with the Wet Weather Flow Policy adopted by Council in 2003.

 

6.         City Council request the General Manager, Toronto Water, to finalize the Environmental Study Report for the Don River and Central Waterfront Class EA and submit it to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment for the obligatory 30 day public review period under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process.

 

7.         City Council direct that subject to receiving approval of the Don River and Central Waterfront  Project Environmental Assessment from the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, the General Manager, Toronto Water:

 

a.         proceed to undertake the detailed design of the first phase of the Project, which represents the twinning of the Coxwell Sanitary Trunk Sewer and associated pumping station;  and

 

b.         the Chief Financial Officer report back, through the 2013 Capital Budget process, on an implementation schedule and a long term funding model for the remaining elements of the plan.

b.         The financial assistance available limited to a maximum upset limit of $500, payable in the form of a cheque; and

 

c.         Revised conditions for financial assistance and eligible work.

 

9.         City Council authorize the General Manager of Toronto Water, in consultation with the City Solicitor, to prescribe any application form and other forms which the General Manager deems necessary to implement the financial assistance provisions set out in Recommendation 10 and to revise and amend those forms as the General Manager considers appropriate from time to time.

 

10.       City Council authorize the General Manager of Toronto Water to amend or revise the eligibility criteria with respect to low-income seniors and low-income disabled persons from time to time to reflect any future changes to the Municipal Code, Chapters 681 and 849.

a.         climate change impacts, associated with intense storms, related to basement flooding;

 

b.         the importance of downspout disconnection and “home isolation” consisting of the installation of sewer backwater valves and the capping off of storm sewer laterals with the installation of a sump pump to help prevent basement flooding;

 

c.         the importance of other lot level controls (e.g. proper lot grading); and

 

d.         the City’s Basement Flooding Protection Subsidy Program.

 

12.       City Council request the General Manager, Toronto Water, in collaboration with the Toronto Region Conservation Authority, to report back in 2012 on the feasibility and costs of carrying out an Environmental Assessment for a Humber Bay Islands Land Form to improve water quality at Sunnyside Beach and protect the shoreline from erosion.

 

13.       City Council request the General Manager, Toronto Water, to examine the possibility of including additional storm water ponds or other innovative "green" solutions to storm water management as part of the Don River and Central Waterfront Project.

Origin
(August 12, 2011) Report from the General Manager, Toronto Water
Summary

The purpose of this report is to advise Council of the progress made since the adoption of the Wet Weather Flow Master Plan (WWFMP) in 2003, to set priorities for the next five years and seek approval in principle for the Don River and Central Waterfront Project.  Subsequent to the adoption of the WWFMP, the rainstorm of August 2005 and the discovery of significant faults in the Coxwell Sanitary Trunk Sewer have profoundly influenced the implementation of the Plan.  As a result, the main funding priorities should be: improving basement flooding protection during extreme storms; twinning of the Coxwell Sanitary Trunk Sewer; elimination of combined sewer overflows; and protection of infrastructure and property from imminent collapse due to stream erosion.  All of these priorities are urgent, the solutions very complicated and each will involve several hundreds of millions of dollars to correct.

 

This report recommends that the Basement Flooding Protection Program, the Don River and Central Waterfront Project and the Stream Restoration Program be the main funding priorities for the WWFMP over the next five to ten years.  Within those programs, it also recommends a method for prioritizing basement flooding projects and coordinating those projects with the rest of the Capital construction program and recommends a technical amendment to the low income subsidy for the Downspout Disconnection Program.

1.         City Council approve the reallocation of funding in the Toronto Water 2011 Capital Budget in the amount of $835,000.00 from WBS Element CPW543-01 Watermain Cleaning and Lining, and $5,000,000.00 from CPW543-04 Watermain Structural Lining to  WBS Element CWW014-13 Trunk Sewer Rehabilitation  to provide total available funding of $7,335,000.00 to cover all costs associated with the repair/replacement of the damaged section of Highland Creek Sanitary Trunk Sewer and to repair the Lawrence Avenue roadway.

Origin
(August 29, 2011) Report from the General Manager, Toronto Water
Summary

The purpose of this report is to advise on the procurement of services and materials related to the emergency repair of the 900mm-1050mm Highland Creek Sanitary Trunk Sewer that crosses under Lawrence Avenue approximately 50 metres east of McCowan Road and to request the approved Toronto Water 2011 Capital Budget be amended to cover all costs associated with the emergency repair.

 

The repair of this trunk sewer was deemed an emergency by the General Manager, Toronto Water under Chapter 195-10F of the Municipal Code. Emergency bypass pumping to convey the flows around the damaged sewer section was implemented immediately under an emergency sole source purchase order. It is necessary to complete the remaining work using an expedited competitive procurement process due to the risk of imminent failure of the trunk sewer. Failure of the trunk sewer could result in a sewage spill into Highland Creek, legislative non-compliance, impact to public health and safety, and the collapse of a portion of Lawrence Avenue denying emergency services and the public access to a major east-west transportation corridor.

Origin
(August 22, 2011) Report from the Executive Director, Technical Services
Summary

The purpose of this report is to request authority to enter into an agreement with the owners of Copernicus Lodge to reimburse them for completing a portion of the driveway reconstruction/realignment at No. 66 Roncesvalles Avenue.  These works were originally included in the scope of work for Contract No. 10EY-08RD, TTC Track Reconstruction, Road Reconfiguration and Reconstruction / Resurfacing and Streetscaping on Roncesvalles Avenue from Queen Street West to Dundas Street West, and are fully funded in the 2010 Capital Budget for Transportation Services. The unspent funds from the 2010 Capital Budget were carried forward into the 2011 Capital Budget.

 

After construction on Roncesvalles Avenue had commenced, Copernicus Lodge representatives requested City staff to provide reimbursement for the cost of the driveway reconstruction/realignment, instead of undertaking the actual construction.  This request was to allow for coordination with other works Copernicus Lodge is undertaking on their property. Technical Services staff supports their request.

 

The tendered price in the contract to undertake both the public and private portions of the driveway reconstruction/realignment is $27,140.00 net of all taxes.  Costs already incurred for temporary and permanent works on the driveway total $7,390.00 net of all taxes. Authorization is being requested to reimburse Copernicus Lodge for the amount of $19,750.00.

(June 1, 2011) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Etobicoke York District
Summary

This report reviews and recommends approval of an application by Lindvest Properties (Westshep) Limited for Part Lot Control Exemption for 14 pairs of semi-detached dwellings (28 units) within the development on lands formerly known as 2277-2295 Sheppard Avenue West and 100 Mainshep Road (Lots 51 to 63 and Lot 77 on Registered Plan of Subdivision 66M-2474).

 

An exemption from Part Lot Control will allow each lot containing a pair of semi-detached dwelling units to be subdivided yielding 28 individual residential lots each with a semi detached dwelling unit.

 

The proposal complies with the existing 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.

The application is for a former commercial plaza site in an existing established residential neighbourhood.  The proposed lot sizes, configuration and dwelling type vary from that existing in the neighbourhood.  However, City Planning staff are of the opinion that the proposed development represents an appropriate type and scale of infill development. 

 

The applicant has appealed the Zoning By-law Amendment application, as well as the related Site Plan Approval application to the Ontario Municipal Board, as the deadline provided by the Planning Act for Council’s decision has passed.  No date has been set for the hearing.  An application for Draft Plan of Subdivision has also been submitted for this development but has not been appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board.

 

This report seeks Council's direction with respect to the Zoning By-law Amendment and Site Plan Approval given that a Final Report has not yet been submitted.

Origin
(September 6, 2011) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Etobicoke York District
Summary

This application proposes to redevelop the vacant lot at 50 Firwood Crescent with seven detached dwellings fronting on Firwood Crescent, and 16 freehold townhouse units and 2 semi-detached units fronting on a new public road and cul-de-sac.

 

Community Council considered a Request for Direction report at its meeting of June 22, 2011.  Some elements of the proposal (inclusion of townhouses, height of townhouses, parking supply and garbage/recycling collection) are of concern to the local community and the Ward Councillor.  Community Council deferred a decision on the recommendations until the meeting of September 12, 2011 to allow City Planning staff and the applicant to continue to discuss and potentially resolve these concerns.  http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2011.EY8.4

 

The applicant has appealed the Zoning By-law Amendment application, as well as the related Site Plan Approval application to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB), as the deadline provided by the Planning Act for Council’s decision has passed.  No date has been set for the hearing.  An application for Draft Plan of Subdivision has also been submitted for this development but has not been appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board.

 

The purpose of this report is to report to City Council regarding the negotiations and to seek direction on the position the City will take at the Ontario Municipal Board.

 

City Planning staff have met with the Ward Councillor and the applicant.  The applicant has indicated that his client is prepared to reduce the height of the townhouse to 10 metres from grade to the top of the roof.  This is a reduction of 1.7 metres and one storey.  The applicant is not proposing any changes relating to the other identified issues: parking, garbage collection and number of dwelling units.

Origin
(April 20, 2011) Report from the Acting Director, Policy and Research, City Planning
Summary

This report recommends that City Council state its intention to designate the properties at 2669-2673 Lake Shore Boulevard West (Gardener’s Cottage, Fetherstonhaugh Estate) under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.  At its meeting of February 16, 2011, the Etobicoke York Community Council deferred consideration of a report (January 27, 2011) from the Director and Deputy Chief Building Official on a demolition control application to its meeting of May 25, 2011, and requested Heritage Preservation Services to report at that time on the potential heritage value of the building. 

 

Following research and evaluation, staff have determined that the properties at 2669-2673, containing a gardener’s cottage associated with the former Fetherstonhaugh Estate, meet the criteria for municipal designation prescribed by the Province of Ontario for its cultural heritage value.  The designation of the properties would enable Council to refuse demolition, control alterations to the sites, and enforce heritage property standards.

At its meeting of May 25, 2011, the Etobicoke York Community Council deferred Item EY7.5 (Intention to Designate under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act – 2669-2673 Lake Shore Boulevard West) to its September 12, 2011 meeting.  The deferral was granted to enable the property owners and heritage staff to discuss the proposed designation, including the boundaries of property for the designating by-law.

 

Representatives of the owner of the property at 2669-2673 Lake Shore Boulevard West and heritage staff have held two meetings and agreed that the attached survey (Attachment No. 1) provided by the owners identifies the portion of the property containing the Gardener's Cottage, Fetherstonhaugh Estate, and identifies the boundaries of the property to be set out in the designating by-law. The survey reflects the agreement between the owner and the City that the designated lands shall be comprised of only a portion of the property as a whole.

Origin
(August 29, 2011) Letter from Councillor Cesar Palacio
Summary

David Macedo and his family are a licensed manufacturer and retailer of wine that operate from their 1381 Dufferin Street location.  In the time that it has operated at this site, Macedo Winery has significantly helped to revitalize the neighbourhood.  Ultimately, it is a unique operation, as they hold 1 of only 33 such licences in Ontario and 1 of only 2 licenses in the City of Toronto.  One condition of the licence is that the winery offers regular, free tours to the public because experience has shown that the public is interested in watching a winery in operation.  The winery is on the published wine tour list for sight-seeing which has created an unexpected tourist attraction in my ward.

 

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario has provided the opportunity for such a winery to promote its wines by selling it by-the-glass in its retail store, a feature officially described by the AGCO as wine-by-the-glass. One of the requirements is to have the municipality pass a resolution allowing same.  Therefore I am asking that City Council approve the recommendation to support their application.

Ontario Municipal Board Hearing - 238 St. Leonard's Avenue
Community Council Recommendations

North York Community Council recommends that:

 

1.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor and any relevant Staff to attend at all proceedings before the Ontario Municipal Board pertaining to the appeal of the Committee of Adjustment decision with respect to 238 St. Leonard's Avenue to uphold the decision of the Committee of Adjustment.

Origin
(August 11, 2011) Memo from Councillor Robinson
Summary

On June 15, 2011, the North York panel of the Committee of Adjustment refused three variances pertaining to the application regarding 238 St. Leonard's Avenue.  The applicant was seeking numerous variances.  This property was the subject of a previous Committee of Adjustment application for the construction of a new two storey home which was approved for an existing lot frontage and width of 13.9m, and existing lot area of 615m2, which was appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board, where the Board's decision to approve only the variances requested for existing lot frontage and width and existing lot area.

 

The applicant was requesting approval from the Committee of Adjustment to construct a three storey home with a below grade parking area that is not permitted under By-laws 1196-2009 and 7625 due to more than 50% of the height of the basement level being located above the established grade.  This was refused by the Committee of Adjustment on June 15, 2011.  The Toronto Water Division confirmed information brought forth at the previous Board hearing regarding the absence of storm sewers on St. Leonard's Avenue, and should approval be given for a below grade garage there is potential for flooding as a result of the inability to create a storm sewer connection.

 

This request is made to authorize the City Solicitor and a planner to attend before the Ontario Municipal Board to oppose the application.

North York Community Council recommends that:

 

1.         City Council not support the Zoning By-law Amendment Application for David Dunlap Circle, Block A, Plan 66M-2365 (formerly part of 39 Green Belt Drive) for, among other matters, the following reasons:  traffic, parking and intensity of the development.

Origin
(August 19, 2011) Report from the Director, Community Planning, North York District
Summary

The applicant is proposing to amend the site specific Zoning By-law that applies to the site to permit an increase in building height from 8 to 9-storeys and an increase in the number of dwelling units from 192 to 350. The rooftop indoor amenity area permitted above the 8th floor would be relocated to the ground floor level. No changes are proposed to the approved zoning permission regarding density or gross floor area.

 

On April 27, 2011, the applicant appealed the Zoning By-law amendment application, as well as the Site Plan application to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) due to Council’s failure to make a decision within the prescribed time frames set out in the Planning Act. 

 

The hearing is scheduled to commence on November 14, 2011.

 

The purpose of this report is to seek City Council’s direction on the appeals and authorization for the City Solicitor and necessary City staff to attend the OMB in support of the applications subject to the conditions outlined in the report.

Community Council Decision Advice and Other Information

North York Community Council held a statutory public meeting on September 12, 2011 and notice was given in accordance with the Planning Act.  No one addressed the North York Community Council.

Origin
(August 24, 2011) Report from the Director, Community Planning, North York District
Summary

In October 2009 City Council enacted an interim control by-law for the Consumers Road Employment Area prohibiting new places of worship for a period of one year. In August 2010 Council extended the interim control by-law for one additional year to October 2011 pending the completion of a study of places of worship in this area. This report reviews the policies and regulations pertaining to places of worship in this area.

 

The current zoning of lands within the Consumers Road Employment Area does not implement the intent of the Official Plan. There is a disconnect between Plan policy direction and its implementation. The Plan indicates that Employment Districts are to be protected from the encroachment of non-economic functions and promoted for economic activity and that the prime economic function of Employment Areas is business and economic activity. Current zoning permits places of worship as-of-right on all properties in the employment area subject to provisions related to impacts on residential zones.

 

Within this current zoning framework there is no opportunity to fully examine the impacts of places of worship on employment uses.

 

This report proposes to amend Zoning By-law No. 7625 for the Consumers Road Employment Area to prohibit places of worship in this area. A proposal for a new place of worship would require a rezoning. An existing place of worship would be permitted to continue. The approach recommended in this report would enable staff to undertake a comprehensive review of the impacts of a proposal for a place of worship on a site by site basis.

Pedestrian Refuge Island Review - Lawrence Avenue East and Susan Street
Community Council Recommendations

Scarborough Community Council recommends that:

 

1.         City Council approve the removal of the Pedestrian Refuge Island on Lawrence Avenue East at Susan Street, subject to the westbound Toronto Transit Commission transit stop on the north side of this intersection being removed.

 

2.         City Council, pursuant to the City of Toronto Act 2006, authorize the appropriate City officials to prepare the necessary Road Alteration By-law.

 

3.         City Council pass or amend the appropriate by-law(s) accordingly.

Summary

The purpose of this report is to discuss the feasibility of removing the Pedestrian Refuge Island (PRI) on Lawrence Avenue East at Susan Street.

 

A proposal by the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) to remove the westbound bus stop on the north side would render the current PRI unwarranted since most pedestrian demand would disappear.  In addition, this location does not meet the current environmental warrant practice for a PRI due to the location of a seven-lane cross-section at this location.

Community Council Decision Advice and Other Information

The Toronto and East York Community Council held a statutory public meeting on September 12, 2011, and notice was given in accordance with the Planning Act.

Origin
(August 15, 2011) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District
Summary

The lands at 56 Blue Jays Way were rezoned in 2007 (By-law 1067-2007) to permit an 18-storey building.  The lands were subsequently rezoned in 2010 (By-law 849-2010) to permit a 41-storey mixed use building at 56 Blue Jays Way.  Amongst other matters, the rezoning required an amendment to the existing Heritage Easement Agreement registered on the site to address the revised proposal and permitted alterations, the submission of a Conservation Plan satisfactory to the Manager of Heritage Preservation Services, a securing letter of credit and restoration of the heritage façade.  The approvals of both the 2007 and 2010 rezonings required the heritage façade to be retained intact, in situ (in place) and not disassembled.   Additionally, other Section 37 benefits and related Section 37Agreements were required for both rezonings.

 

This report recommends amendments to Zoning By-law 849-2010 and the Section 37 Agreement in order to allow the retained eastern façade  (the "Heritage Façade") of the Diesel Theatre to be temporarily relocated within the site during the construction of the building (the building allowed under By-law 849-2010).  The Heritage Façade would be returned to its original location, integrated into the new building and restored prior to completion of the redevelopment and, in any event, prior to any portion of the new building being used for any commercial or residential purpose.  The requirement that the Heritage Façade be retained intact and not disassembled remains unchanged.  Amendments to the Heritage Easement Agreement and related Conservation Plan are also required and will be addressed in a report on the alteration of the designated property from Heritage Preservation Services staff being prepared for the September 7, 2011 meeting of the Toronto Preservation Board.

 

With the exception of the temporary relocation of the Heritage Façade and the requirement for a revised Conservation Plan, an amended Heritage Easement Agreement and an appropriate letter of credit to secure the relocation and return of such façade, the redevelopment and the Section 37 contributions remain unchanged.

(August 17, 2011) Report from the Acting Director, Policy and Research, City Planning Division
Summary

This report recommends that City Council consent to the alteration of a designated heritage property, comprised of the temporary relocation, re-installation within a new building permitted by By-law 849-2010 and restoration of an existing historic façade located at 56 Blue Jays Way, subject to a number of conditions, and authorize the amendment of a Heritage Easement Agreement (HEA) currently in force between the City and the property owners to allow for this revised conservation strategy.

 

The former George Crookshank House (56 Blue Jays Way) was designated by Toronto City Council under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act on December, 2007 (By-law 1362-2007). A pre-existing HEA was registered on November 21, 1996 that protected the east wall façade of the then listed property, and permitted alterations and development at a compatible scale.

 

The lands at 56 Blue Jays Way were rezoned in 2007 (By-law 1067-2007) to permit an 18 storey building. The lands were subsequently rezoned in 2010 (By-law 849-2010) to permit a 41-storey mixed use building at 56 Blue Jays Way. Amongst other matters, the rezoning required an amendment to the existing HEA to address the revised proposal and permitted alterations, the submission of a Conservation Plan satisfactory to the Manager, Heritage Preservation Services, and a securing letter of credit for the restoration of the heritage façade. 

 

The proposals in both the 2007 and 2010 rezonings required the heritage façade to be retained intact, in situ (in place) and not disassembled during the construction phase of a new development.  However, a recent engineering study prepared by the owner has necessitated a change to the approved conservation strategy which had formed a part of the site's zoning requirements. It is now proposed that the heritage façade be temporarily relocated within the site during construction.  The heritage façade will then be returned to its original location, reinstalled within the new building and be fully restored (Heritage Impact Assessment submitted by E.R.A. Architects Inc., dated May 19, 2011).  The current requirement that the heritage façade be incorporated into the east wall façade of the proposed building remains unchanged.

 

Council's consent is required for both the alteration to the designated heritage property under Section 33 of the Ontario Heritage Act and the amendment to the registered HEA that will include necessary changes to the Conservation Strategy and the Letter of Credit together with the updating of certain of the HEA provisions. 

 

This report is being brought forward at the same time as a Supplementary report for the Zoning By-law Amendment from the Director, Community Planning for the subject property.

Request for Direction Report - 41 Ossington Avenue - Zoning Amendment
Community Council Recommendations

The Toronto and East York Community Council recommends that:

 

1.         City Council request the Chief Planner, in consultation with the City Solicitor and Ward Councillor, to continue negotiations with the applicant for 41 Ossington Avenue with the goal of achieving a settlement that meets the recommended setbacks and stepbacks described in the report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District dated August 17, 2011.

 

2.         In the event that staff and the applicant are unable to reach a satisfactory settlement, City Council authorize the City Solicitor, together with City Planning staff and any other appropriate staff, to oppose the applicants' appeal respecting the Zoning By-law Amendment application for 41 Ossington Avenue (File Number 10 266103 STE 19 OZ) and to attend any Ontario Municipal Board Hearings in opposition to such appeal.

 

3.         City Council request the Chief Planner to bring forward a site specific Official Plan amendment for 41 Ossington Avenue to address technical Official Plan issues should the application be approved by the Ontario Municipal Board.

 

4.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor and other City staff to take any necessary steps to implement the foregoing.

Origin
(August 17, 2011) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District
Summary

This application proposes a five-storey condominium building, having ground floor retail, fronting Ossington Avenue and 6 four-storey townhouse units fronting Rebecca Street.  A total of 25 residential units are proposed between the condominium and townhouses, with 21 parking spaces to be provided. Sixteen parking spaces will be situated on a parking stacker located in the middle and east portion of the townhouses at 41 Ossington Avenue.

 

This report advises Council that the applicant has appealed the Zoning By-law amendment and Site Plan application to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) and seeks direction regarding representation at the Ontario Municipal Board hearing and negotiations with the applicant to resolve the issues identified in this report.

 

The proposed 5-storey condominium building fronting Ossington Avenue is acceptable; however, the proposed townhouses represents over development in its current form particularly with regard to setbacks. The approval of the townhouse component of this proposal in its current form would set a negative precedent for future development that undermines the City's Official Plan Neighbourhoods policies and compromises the quality of the development. The location of the proposed parking stackers servicing the mixed use condominium in the Neighbourhood portion of the site will require an Official Plan amendment.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, staff would support an Official Plan and Zoning By-law amendment if the applicant is agreeable to the changes to the rear yard setbacks/stepbacks identified in this report.

(August 19, 2011) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District
Summary

This application was made after January 1, 2007 and is subject to the changes to the Planning Act that came into effect on that date and the City of Toronto Act, 2006.

 

The applicant has appealed the Zoning By-law Amendment and Site Plan applications for 11 Charlotte Street to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) due to Council’s failure to make a decision on the application within the time allotted by the Planning Act.

 

The application proposes a 32-storey building (103 metres plus 9.5 metre mechanical feature) at 11 Charlotte Street, midblock within an area of low-scale warehouse buildings.  The proposal consists of 232 residential units, commercial/retail space on the main level, and provides 65 parking spaces within four levels of underground parking.

 

The proposal, in its current format, does not meet criteria with respect to height, scale, and massing, and does not meet the intent of the Zoning By-law with respect to height, building setbacks, residential amenity space, and minimum parking requirements for residents and visitors.

 

The purpose of this report is to seek City Council’s direction for the City Solicitor, together with Planning and appropriate City Staff to oppose the proposal at the OMB.
