Eglinton Connects Planning Study - Final Directions Report
City Council Decision

City Council on May 6, 7 and 8, 2014, adopted the following:

 

1.         City Council approve the 21 Study Recommendations of the Eglinton Connects Plan, listed in Attachment 3 of the report (March 19, 2014) from the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning, as follows:

 

"Travelling Eglinton

 

Study Recommendation 1 – Create a Complete Street:  Eglinton Avenue should provide a safe, convenient and active mix of transportation options for all users. Though implementation may take place over time, Eglinton Avenue should ultimately become increasingly multimodal, balancing space for pedestrians, cyclists, transit and vehicles.

 

Study Recommendation 2 – Provide Wide Sidewalks:  Wide sidewalks (minimum 4.8 m or 6.0 m, depending on right-of-way width) provide generous and safe space for pedestrians, big trees, snow/garbage storage, street furniture and patios, and retail zones.  This should be achieved through consolidation of travel lanes and reallocation of space on the street to ensure that Eglinton Avenue has a vibrant and active pedestrian environment.

 

Study Recommendation 3 – Build Protected Cycling Lanes:  Protected cycling lanes across the full length of Eglinton Avenue should be constructed to create a safe, comfortable and direct route for cyclists of all ages and abilities. Bike lanes should be protected from traffic through such measures as raised lanes, barrier curbs and/or buffer strips. Connections to transit stations, trails and convenient bike parking facilities should be part of the comprehensive cycling network.

 

Study Recommendation 4 – Reallocate Road Space to Meet Projected Needs and Mobility Mix: The design of the Eglinton Avenue right-of-way should reflect the objectives of a complete street by allocating adequate space to a mix of mobility options.  Re-allocation of space from vehicular travel lanes responds to projected levels of vehicle movement, as well as an expected increase in pedestrian and cyclist movement. This approach maintains a functional level of service for moving vehicles, access for emergency services and goods movement. 

 

Study Recommendation 5 – Maintain Parking Supply:  Eglinton Avenue should be designed to maintain existing on-street parking supply, in order to serve retail and local businesses. Additional public parking should be integrated into new buildings and provided in rear lanes.

 

Study Recommendation 6 – Extend Network of Rear Lanes:  Laneways should be provided at the rear of all new buildings, if appropriate, to access below grade parking, servicing and loading in order to avoid conflicts on Eglinton Avenue, and for additional public parking to serve local retail.

 

Study Recommendation 7 – Implement Streetscape Typologies:  Seven distinct streetscape typologies have been identified and should be implemented to respond to local character, create a distinct sense of place through the public realm and support adjacent uses.

 

The seven distinct streetscape typologies are as follows:

 

1.         Jane Street to Black Creek Drive – four-lane cross-section plus two-way cycle track and multi-purpose path on the north side, bus and passenger pick up and drop off facilities in lay-bys.

 

2.         Black Creek Drive to Avenue Road, and Mount Pleasant Road to Bayview Avenue –four-lane cross-section with sidewalk level bike lanes, on-street, off-peak parking.

 

3.         Avenue Road to Mount Pleasant Road – three-lane cross-section including centre turn lane, lay-by parking, sidewalk level bike lanes, wider sidewalks.

 

4.          Bayview Avenue to Laird Drive – four-lane cross-section for residential area with sidewalk-level bike lanes, on-street, off-peak parking and narrower sidewalks than in mixed use areas, due to lower expected pedestrian traffic.

 

5.         Laird Drive to Brentcliffe Road – five-lane cross-section including centre turn lane, lay-by parking, bike lanes, wider sidewalks.

 

6.          Brentcliffe Road to Victoria Park Avenue (45m ROW) - four-lane cross-section with median-running surface LRT, on-street bike lanes, no parking, narrower sidewalks due to lower expected lower pedestrian volumes.

 

7.         Victoria Park Avenue to Kennedy Road (36m ROW) - four-lane cross-section with median-running surface LRT, on-street bike lanes, no parking, wider sidewalks.

 

Greening Eglinton

 

 Study Recommendation 8 – Implement Three Primary Greening Typologies:  As the character of the urban landscape changes significantly across Eglinton Avenue, the streetscape design should be organized around three greening typologies – main street, boulevard and valley landscapes – each with its own unique greening strategy.

 

Main Street Landscape – includes large trees planted in trenches under the sidewalk and is located where the LRT runs underground, roughly between Black Creek Drive and Brentcliffe Road; mainly a 27 metre ROW.

 

Boulevard Landscapeincludes a formal treed boulevard to define the street edge, shade trees within open planters and a planted LRT trackway – located between Victoria Park Avenue and Kennedy Road, with a particular emphasis on the ‘Golden Mile’ (Victoria Park Avenue to Birchmount Road) with its 36 metre ROW.

 

Valley Landscape includes informal tree massing, native species and a planted LRT trackway – located around the Humber and Don Valleys.

 

Study Recommendation 9 – Create a Network of Green and Open Spaces:  Eglinton Avenue should connect a range of green and open spaces, from building setbacks, urban plazas, civic spaces and squares, to parks and valleys. The elements of this network should serve local, city and even regional needs for open space and natural areas.

 

Study Recommendation 10 – Grow Great Trees:  There should be large trees growing along Eglinton Avenue to establish a new identity for this corridor as a green and beautiful street with a full tree canopy. Mature tree growth requires additional soil volume and/or open planters, as well as the burying of overhead wiring to eliminate conflicts.

 

Study Recommendation 11 – Relocate Hydro Below-Grade:  Overhead hydro lines should be buried to provide adequate and unobstructed space for mature tree growth, and contribute to uncluttered sidewalks and boulevards.

 

Study Recommendation 12 – Connect Eglinton Avenue to the Trails and Ravine System:  Eglinton Avenue provides a direct visual and physical connection to the iconic valleys of the Humber and Don Rivers, and their tributaries, including Black Creek.  The Eglinton LRT will provide an enhanced linkage between these natural systems. New connections and an enhanced street presence should be created along Eglinton Avenue to the major valleys, multi-use trails and the ravine system.

 

Study Recommendation 13 – Green Transit Infrastructure/Green Trackway:  The at-grade segment of the Eglinton LRT, between Brentcliffe Road and Kennedy Station, should be designed with grass or sedum on the trackway and landscaping, planters and trees at LRT platforms. Each of the LRT portals should also contribute to creating a green corridor.

 

Study Recommendation 14 – Plan a Public Art Program:  Public art along Eglinton Avenue should be coordinated through a Public Art Program that is developed through a Public Art Master Plan process specific to the Eglinton Avenue corridor.  This will ensure that priorities for public art opportunities are guided through a well-defined process.

 

Building Eglinton

 

Study Recommendation 15 – Encourage Mid-Rise Buildings on Eglinton Avenue through As-of-Right Zoning Permissions:  New buildings should be predominantly mid-rise in scale for the portions of Eglinton Avenue that are identified as an Avenue in the Official Plan. As-of-right zoning permissions should be adopted to encourage mid-rise development for these locations.

 

Study Recommendation 16 – Maximize Opportunities for Mid-Rise Development on Shallow Lots: Opportunities on shallow lots should be maximized to allow development to achieve all of the Performance Standards for Mid-Rise Buildings, including a maximum height equivalent to the planned width of the right-of-way, transition to lower scale neighbourhoods and laneways.

 

Study Recommendation 17 – Integrate LRT Station Sites with New Development:  From a city-building perspective, LRT station sites are ideal locations for new mixed use development, combining retail, residential and employment uses. The siting and design of the stations should set a precedent and establish a new context for connecting development to transit.

 

Study Recommendation 18 – Plan For Intensification In Focus Areas and Mobility Hubs:  The six Focus Areas and two Mobility Hubs include large sites where mixed use intensification should occur over time, including some sites that should be integrated with Eglinton LRT stations. These areas provide opportunities for incorporating a mix of residential and employment uses in a range of building heights and sizes, combined with new public streets, community services and facilities, and high quality green and open spaces.

 

Study Recommendation 19 – Expand Community Services and Facilities, Including Green and Open Spaces, in Tandem with Development:  The role of Eglinton Avenue will change in the coming years, along with the intensity of activity and land uses. As more people and jobs move to the corridor, new community services and facilities, including green and open spaces, such as parks, should be planned in conjunction with new development and the LRT.

 

Study Recommendation 20 – Encourage Street-Related Retail:  In segments of Eglinton Avenue where retail is required or encouraged, the ground floor of new buildings should provide space for street-related retail uses.

 

Study Recommendation 21 – Implement Additional Performance Standards to Support Local Character Areas and Heritage:  Performance Standards for new buildings in Character Areas and adjacent to heritage resources should guide a complementary built form that reflects the diversity found along Eglinton Avenue."

 

2.         City Council direct the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning to prepare the necessary Official Plan Amendments, Zoning By-law Amendments and other planning instruments and measures listed in Attachment 4 of the report (March 19, 2014) from the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning that are recommended for implementation at this time (Phase 1).

 

3.         City Council direct the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning to consult with the public, stakeholders and interested parties on the Official Plan Amendments, Zoning By-law Amendments and other planning instruments and measures listed in Attachment 4 (Phases 1 and 2) of the report (March 19, 2014) from the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning.

1.         City Council adopt the Ombudsman's report (April 2014) and in so doing, request that Toronto Community Housing Corporation implement all of the recommendations.

  

Ombudsman Recommendations:

 

Taking into account all of the evidence gathered through this investigation I am making the following recommendations. These recommendations are due by March 31, 2015, unless otherwise specified:

1.         That Toronto Community Housing Corporation comply with its own policies, procedures, processes and protocols and that any changes made by the corporation to these matters be properly communicated to staff with the appropriate notice.

 

2.         That Toronto Community Housing Corporation consult with the Human Resources Division of the City of Toronto with respect to human resources policies and practices with a view to considering the best practices already developed by the City, and to identify opportunities to improve Toronto Community Housing Corporation's policies in a cost-effective and efficient manner.

 

3.         That Toronto Community Housing Corporation ensure its policies on record creation and record keeping with respect to human resources activities including those related to hiring, promotions and terminations accord with best practices, legal and policy provisions for public sector employers and that these policies are communicated to employees and followed.

 

4.         That the Conflict of Interest Policy be expanded to capture past business relationships and other personal associations, and to require the declaration of such relationships, and to implement guidance on managing such conflicts.

 

5.         That by March 31, 2015, Toronto Community Housing Corporation develop briefing materials and training programs for its senior executives respecting the Human Resources policies of the organization on recruitment, terminations and the expanded Conflict of Interest policy, and ensure that all new senior executives receive such training promptly.

 

6.         That Toronto Community Housing Corporation train all decision makers involved in hiring and promotions regarding the policies of the organization.

 

7.         That following the external job evaluation review, the Job Evaluation Committee be resurrected and returned to its role of reviewing job evaluations and providing guidance on job evaluation decisions in a timely fashion to protect the integrity and equity of the Toronto Community Housing Corporation compensation system.

 

8.         That Toronto Community Housing Corporation immediately suspend its use of its Employment Standards Act clause until it has been fully considered by both the executive leadership team and the Board of Directors and, if Toronto Community Housing Corporation decides to implement an Employment Standards Act clause that impacts employees, such changes be properly approved and appropriate notice be provided to all employees including transparency about the implications of the clause for both the employees and Toronto Community Housing Corporation.

 

9.         That the Board of Directors clarify, document and train every member of the Board about their obligations with respect to human resources matters.

 

10.       That the Chief Executive Officer ensure standardized information regarding recruitment is provided to the Governance and Human Resources Committee and the Board, so that both the Committee and the Board can be able to verify the suitability of the candidate and the integrity of the process.

 

11.       That by December 31, 2014, a confidential procedure be implemented to permit people who wish to complain about recruitment practices may do so in a timely manner without fear of reprisal and that central tracking of the issues raised and their outcomes be documented. Such information should be reported to the executive leadership team and the Board so that any systemic issues can be addressed. Further, the draft complaints procedure is to be provided no later than November 14, 2014 to my office for review.

 

12.       That by October 31, 2014, a status update be provided to my office on the implementation of these recommendations.

 

2.         City Council, in response to the April 25th request to City Council of the Toronto Community Housing Board and in recognition of the City's dual role of Shareholder and Service Manager for Toronto Community Housing Corporation, and to ensure the continuity of services to residents, request the City Manager to establish a City staff team to provide assistance to the Toronto Community Housing Board of Directors and its executive leadership team and the City Manager and the Acting Chief Executive Officer of Toronto Community Housing Corporation consider using third party human resource consultants to ensure the distinct roles of service manager and shareholder are maintained through this process.
