Sponsorships and Naming Rights: Partnership Policies to Promote and Recognize Contributions to the City
City Council Decision

City Council on November 29, 30 and December 1, 2011, adopted the following:

 

1.         City Council amend Section 6.1, Naming of Properties and Streets, of Appendix 3 to the report (October 14, 2011) from the City Manager, by adding the Criteria for Name Selection set out in the City of Toronto Street Naming Policy, so that the Section now reads:

 

"6.1         Naming of Properties and Streets

 

6.1.1       In line with current practice, for the naming of ward-specific properties and streets, division staff shall only recommend names that:

 

-            after consulting with the local community and councillor, are determined to have general public support;

 

-           engender a strong positive image;

 

-           have historical, cultural or social significance to the community, City or nation;

 

-           are unique, to avoid confusion;

 

-           do not lend themselves to inappropriate abbreviations or acronyms; and

 

-           comply with this policy;

 

6.1.2    Streets should generally be named after people, places, events and things related to the City and citizens of Toronto.  Proposed names should meet one of the following criteria:

 

a.          to honour and commemorate noteworthy persons associated with the City of Toronto;

 

b.          to commemorate local history, places, events or culture;

 

c.          to strengthen neighbourhood identity; or

 

d.          to recognize native wildlife, flora, fauna or natural features related to the community and the City of Toronto.

 

6.1.3.   Consideration should be given to names of local area or historic significance.

 

6.1.4    Names of living persons should be used only in exceptional circumstances.

 

6.1.5    Only a person’s last name should be used as a street name unless additional identification is necessary to prevent a duplication with an existing street name in Toronto and surrounding municipalities.

 

6.1.6       Upon concluding its due diligence, the division will report to the relevant Community Council with the recommended name."

 

2.         City Council amend Appendix 1 - City of Toronto Sponsorship Policy, to the report (October 14, 2011) from the City Manager as follows:

 

a.         Amend Section 5.2.1 to be consistent with the Naming Policy by adding the words: "The City reserves the right to refuse any proposal, including, but not limited to, those submitted by third parties whose activities are perceived to be incompatible with the City's goals, values or mission.",

 

so that Section 5.2.1 now reads:

 

"5.2.1    The City will consider all sponsorship proposals but has no obligation to accept any of them. The City reserves the right to refuse any proposal, including, but not limited to, those submitted by third parties whose activities are perceived to be incompatible with the City's goals, values or mission."

 

b.         Amend Section 6.8 so that it now reads:

 

"6.8      The recipient division is to notify the local councillor when a ward-specific sponsorship is being considered."

 

c.         Add to the end of Section 6.9 the following new paragraph:

 

"Sponsorship and naming agreements are to be made available to the public".

 

3.          City Council amend the statements respecting the application of the policies to the City's ABCs contained in Section 3.3 of the Sponsorship Policy in Appendix 1, Section 3.4 of the Property Naming Rights Policy in Appendix 2, and Section 3.3 in the Honourific and Street Naming Policy in Appendix 3 by:

 

a.          Adding the words "by requiring that those ABCs adopt policies which are consistent with this policy.  Approval of proposals would continue to be by the ABC or, if such authority is not delegated to the ABC, by City Council."; and

 

b.          Making clear that the authority for street naming shall remain solely with the City,

 

So that those provisions now read as follows:

 

Sponsorship Policy:

 

3.3       For purposes of corporate consistency, this policy shall apply to all City divisions and to those agencies, boards and commissions (ABCs) which are by law subject to the policies of City Council by requiring that those ABCs adopt policies which are consistent with this policy.  Approval of proposals would continue to be by the ABC or, if such authority is not delegated to the ABC, by City Council. All other ABCs are requested to adopt policies which are consistent with this policy.  This policy shall not apply to boards of management for business improvement areas."

 

Property Naming Rights Policy:

 

"3.4      For purposes of corporate consistency, this policy shall apply to all City divisions and to those agencies, boards and commissions (ABCs) which are by law subject to the policies of City Council by requiring that those ABCs adopt policies which are consistent with this policy.  Approval of proposals would continue to be by the ABC or, if such authority is not delegated to the ABC, by City Council. All other ABCs are requested to adopt policies which are consistent with this policy.  This policy shall not apply to boards of management for business improvement areas."

 

Honourific and Street Naming Policy:

 

"3.3      For purposes of corporate consistency, this policy shall apply to all City divisions and to those agencies, boards and commissions (ABCs) which are by law subject to the policies of City Council by requiring that those ABCs adopt policies which are consistent with this policy.  Approval of proposals would continue to be by the ABC or, if such authority is not delegated to the ABC, by City Council. All other ABCs are requested to adopt policies which are consistent with this policy.  The authority for street naming under this policy shall remain solely with the City."

 

4.         City Council adopt the policies, as amended, contained in the following attachments to the report (October 14, 2011) from the City Manager:

 

a.         Appendix 1 – City of Toronto Sponsorship Policy, as amended by Parts 2 and 3 above.

b.         Appendix 2 – City of Toronto Property Naming Rights Policy, as amended by Part 3 above.

c.         Appendix 3 – City of Toronto Honourific and Street Naming Policy, as amended by Parts 1 and 3 above.

 

5.         City Council request the Director of the Toronto Office of Partnerships, in conjunction with the relevant City divisions, and in consultation with the BIAs, to identify appropriate properties for potential naming rights.

 

6.         City Council request the Director of the Toronto Office of Partnerships to consult with relevant internal and external stakeholders, including BIAs,  for the purposes of establishing guidelines for the valuation of City properties that may be leveraged for sponsorships and naming rights.

 

7.         City Council delegate authority to Division Heads to accept and enter into sponsorship agreements and to spend received funds in accordance with Appendix 1, as amended, of the report (October 14, 2011) from the City Manager, and that the City of Toronto’s Municipal Code be amended accordingly.

 

8.         City Council amend the Council Procedures to expand the delegation of authority to community councils to include the authority to name City properties in compliance with City policies.

 

9.         City Council authorize the introduction of the necessary bills to give effect to Council's decision.

Review of Paid Duty Officers' Traffic Control Assignments
City Council Decision

City Council on November 29, 30 and December 1, 2011, adopted the following:

 

1.         City Council revoke the existing Memorandum of Understanding: Guidelines for Paid Duty Police between Toronto Police Service and Transportation Services Division.

 

2.         City Council approve the new Memorandum of Understanding: Guidelines for Road Occupancy Traffic Control outlined in Appendix A to the report (October 11, 2011) from the General Manager, Transportation Services, as amended by Parts 3 and 4 below.

 

3.         City Council direct the General Manager of Transportation Services and the Chief of the Toronto Police Service to delete Clause 4 of Appendix A - Memorandum of Understanding: Guidelines for Road Occupancy and Traffic Control to the report (October 11, 2011) from the General Manager, Transportation Services and replace it with the following:

 

"4)       a)         Where a road emergency has occurred which, through its circumstances and conditions requires that the ensuing traffic control be provided by a police officer, this traffic control shall be provided by an on-duty officer until the emergency has passed.

 

                                   b)          If the emergency resolution will be lengthy and on-duty officers are required for other service duties, then staff of Toronto Transportation, Toronto Police and the associated contractor will collectively determine which subsequent traffic control can be provided by means other than an on-duty police officer.

 

4.         City Council amend Appendix A - Memorandum of Understanding: Guidelines for Road Occupancy Traffic Control, to the report (October 11, 2011) from the General Manager, Transportation Services, to clarify how this Memorandum ought to apply to other emergencies requiring traffic control, by adding the following new Clause 5 under the heading "All Other Emergencies" and renumbering the subsequent Clauses:

 

ALL OTHER EMERGENCIES:

 

5.         In the event of any other type of emergency which presents an immediate danger to the health or safety of any person, including but not limited to the failure of buildings or parts of buildings, due to events such as fires, explosions, circumstances resulting in the collapse of buildings or otherwise, and which results in the need for traffic control, the required traffic control shall be provided by on-duty police officers for the duration of the emergency.

 

Where the City Division(s) having jurisdiction over and managing the emergency determine(s) that the emergency has passed in that the immediate danger to the health or safety of persons is removed and that restoration of the site can be initiated, said Division(s) in conjunction with Toronto Police Service shall determine if continued traffic control is required, and if so, whether the continued traffic control should reasonably be provided by on-duty police officers or transferred to paid duty officers.

 

5.         City Council request the General Manager of the Transportation Services Division to remove all references to paid duty officers from permits, guidelines, and documents granted/owned/managed/used by the Transportation Services Division and replace with appropriate traffic control requirements as summarized in Table 1 of the Memorandum of Understanding outlined in Appendix A to the report (October 11, 2011) from the General Manager, Transportation Services.

 

6.         City Council request the Executive Director of Technical Services to remove all reference to paid duty officers from the “Standard Construction Specifications for Roads”, “Municipal Consent Requirements for the Installation of Plant Within City of Toronto Streets” and any other applicable document and replace with appropriate traffic control requirements as summarized in Table 1 of the Memorandum of Understanding outlined in Appendix A to the report (October 11, 2011) from the General Manager, Transportation Services.

 

7.         City Council request the General Manager of the Transportation Services Division to meet quarterly in 2012 with the Toronto Police Service to review the progress in the implementation of the new traffic control requirements policy and report as needed to the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee.

 

8.         City Council direct that:

 

a.         the Transportation Services Division's approved construction plan be posted and maintained in a publicly visible location at all construction sites;

 

b.         City of Toronto Site Inspection Officers report any concerns or requests for amendments to the approved construction plan and not permit any site changes until Transportation Services approves any revisions to the plan;

 

c.         all paid duty officers or persons hired for traffic control at construction sites be given a copy of the transportation construction plan; and

 

d.         public information be posted at every construction site indicating a City of Toronto number to call in regard to any traffic concerns related to that site.

 

9.         City Council forward this Item to the Toronto Transit Commission, Toronto Hydro and the Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas for their consideration of further cost saving opportunities through the reduction of reliance on paid duty officers.

a.         That Policy 3.1.7 be amended by deleting the words:

c.         That Maps 32-9 Pedestrian Plan and 32-10 Bicycle Plan be amended by adding the words, "(subject to Policy 4.6.6)" to the Neighbourhoods Connection identified in the legend of each map, so that the legend will read:

iv.        the costs of "local" infrastructure, as defined by the City from time to time, which is not eligible for development charges funding, shall be borne by the development proponent unless the City agrees that it shall assume such costs;

v.         funding from other orders of government for this initiative shall be used, to the extent possible, for the purposes of supporting City infrastructure and community facilities costs; and

vi.        where funding from other orders of government for this initiative cannot specifically be used for supporting infrastructure and community facilities, TCHC shall use its best efforts to absorb infrastructure funding commensurate with the level of support from the other orders of government.
