December 5, 2017 at 10:21 a.m. - Speaker Nunziata advised Council of the following:

 

Members, I will now review the Order Paper.

 

We have 11 deferred items on this agenda:

The first Key Matter will be Item EX29.1, headed "SmartTrack Project Update and Next Steps" and

 

The Second Key Matter will be Item EX29.2, headed "Rail Deck Park, Results of Feasibility Analysis and Next Steps for Implementation".

 

These will be our first and second item of business today.

 

I propose that the related Official Plan Amendment on the Rail Deck Park, Item TE28.7, be brought forward for consideration with the Mayor's second Key Matter.

 

There are also a number of other items on the agenda that are related, so I propose that they also be considered together:

The City Clerk has noted the Items that Members wish to hold.

 

I will now go through the Items listed on the Order Paper to take additional holds.  I will recognize requests to make matters urgent and time specific after I go through the Items for additional holds.

Rail Deck Park - Results of Feasibility Analysis and Next Steps for Implementation
City Council Decision

City Council on December 5, 6, 7 and 8, 2017, adopted the following:

 

1.  City Council authorize the Deputy City Manager, Cluster B, the Deputy City Manager, Cluster A, the Deputy City Manager, Internal Corporate Services and the Interim Chief Financial Officer, in consultation with City Solicitor, to:

 

i.  advance the Stage Two Work Plan for Rail Deck Park in 2018 and 2019 as described in the report (November 20, 2017) from the Deputy City Manager, Cluster B, the Deputy City Manager Cluster A, the Deputy City Manager Internal Corporate Services and the Interim Chief Financial Officer; and

 

ii.  utilize the City-owned lands in the rail corridor only in a manner consistent with the future establishment of a comprehensive park and open space development in the rail corridor area.

 

2.  City Council request Metrolinx to work in partnership with the Deputy City Manager, Cluster B to advance the Spadina-Front GO station, the Rail Deck Park proposal and other aligned capital projects in the rail corridor, and request consideration of a decking structure in the planning, design and engineering work for the Spadina-Front GO station, including but not limited to the station's Transit Project Assessment Process or addenda.

 

3.  City Council authorize the Deputy City Manager, Cluster B, the Deputy City Manager, Cluster A and the Interim Chief Financial Officer to advance the development of a growth-focused financial strategy for Rail Deck Park based on the following principles:

 

a.  a portion of Section 42 Cash-In-Lieu of parkland contributions and other growth-related funds previously collected from development activity in Downtown Toronto will be applied towards project costs in a way that does not negatively impact on any parkland revenues generated for other areas of the City, and in accordance with existing allocation policies;

 

b.  incremental revenues from future rate increases to existing and/or new growth-related revenue tools, including Section 42 Cash-in-Lieu of parkland contributions, Section 37 contributions, Development Charges, and appropriate value capture tools, will be applied in such a manner that benefits all projects including the Rail Deck Park project and other parkland priorities across the City;

 

c.  commercial contributions will be sought that reflect the proportional benefit for properties and businesses in areas surrounding the project site resulting from the investment in Rail Deck Park;

Reducing Health Risks from Traffic-Related Air Pollution (TRAP) in Toronto
City Council Decision

City Council on December 5, 6, 7 and 8, 2017, adopted the following:

 

1.  City Council direct the Director, Environment and Energy Division, in collaboration with the Medical Officer of Health, to:

 

a.  work with staff from City Planning, Toronto Building, Children's Services, Long-Term Care Homes and Services, Facilities Management, Transportation Services, Engineering and Construction Services, Parks, Forestry and Recreation, the Toronto Public Library, and other appropriate City divisions and agencies, to develop feasible best practices on how to reduce exposure to traffic-related air pollution, and facilitate their implementation at City facilities;

 

b.  develop guidance to assist appropriate City agencies, corporations, and divisions in establishing traffic-related air pollution mitigation measures at City-owned sites located within 500 metres of roads with annual average traffic volumes of 100,000 vehicles or more per day, and within 100 metres of roads with annual average traffic volumes of 15,000 vehicles or more per day; and

 

c.  develop best practices guidelines for new and existing buildings, in consultation with industry professionals, and raise awareness of these practices among school board staff, child care centre operators, long-term care facility operators, and residents, as well as builders, developers, designers, architects, engineers and other professionals.

 

2.  City Council direct the General Manager, Transportation Services, in collaboration with the Director, Environment and Energy, to:

 

a.  pursue, through the Toronto Congestion Management Plan (2016-2020), opportunities to reduce traffic-related air pollution; and

 

b.  undertake an evaluation of the City's street sweeping service levels to identify any possible enhancements that could improve air quality along Toronto's roadways by:

 

1.  adopting Ontario's interim 24-hour Ambient Air Quality Criterion for coarse particulate matter (PM10) of 50 micrograms per cubic metre of air (50 µg/m3) and the 24-hour Canadian Ambient Air Quality Standard for fine particulate matter (PM2.5) of 28 micrograms per cubic metre of air (28 µg/m3) as air quality benchmarks for the maximum desirable concentration of particulate matter in air along Toronto streets;

 

2.  conducting an air quality monitoring study of ambient PM10 and PM2.5 concentrations along City streets to assess the impact of current street sweeping practices, and using the findings to inform street sweeping service levels;

 

3.  developing an air quality monitoring program for ambient PM10 and PM2.5 concentrations to assess whether the interim 24-hour Ambient Air Quality Criterion for PM10 and the 24-hour Canadian Ambient Air Quality Standard for PM2.5 are met near roadways; and

 

4.  giving first priority to meeting the air quality benchmarks at sensitive use properties, including child care centres, schools, and long-term care homes, within 500 metres of roads with annual average traffic volumes of 100,000 vehicles or more per day, and giving second priority to sensitive uses within 100 metres of roads with annual average traffic volumes of 15,000 vehicles or more per day, and identify a strategy for meeting the air quality benchmarks more broadly across the City giving priority to areas with elevated particulate matter concentrations and residential areas.

 

3.  City Council request the Ontario Minister of Environment and Climate Change to:

 

a.  undertake mobile air quality monitoring and air modelling along provincial highways including those located in Toronto to assess the relationship between traffic counts and air quality in areas adjacent to these highways, to estimate health risks, and provide trends over time;

 

b.  estimate the cost of social, environmental, and health impacts associated with traffic-related air pollution, including health-care costs and years of life lost, and compare these with the costs of preventing emissions of, and exposure to, traffic-related air pollution; and

 

c.  establish a special air management area focussed on land adjacent to Provincial highways in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area to facilitate development and implementation of provincial and municipal measures to reduce releases of, and exposure to, traffic-related air pollution along these highways.

 

4.  City Council request the Ontario Minister of Finance to implement financing and funding mechanisms for building retrofits needed to reduce exposure to traffic-related air pollution, with a priority placed on supporting retrofits of buildings with sensitive uses (such as schools, child care centres and long-term care facilities) located near highways and roads with average daily traffic volumes of 100,000 vehicles or more.

 

5.  City Council request the Ontario Minister of Transportation to review the feasibility of modifying street sweeping standards and practices on Provincial Highways to reduce levels of PM10 (particulate matter with an average diameter of 10 micrometres of less) in air along such highways.

 

6.  City Council request the Federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change to:

 

a.  harmonize Canadian environmental emissions standards for fuels, vehicles and engines with those applicable in the State of California;

 

b.  identify a strategy to reduce emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases from older model heavy-duty diesel trucks; and

 

c.  include in Canada's Clean Fuel Standard, limits to emissions of air pollutants, in addition to the proposed limits on greenhouse gases.

 

7.  City Council request the General Manager, Transportation Services, in each of the reports concerning traffic measures and controls, to identify and comment on the potential effects on congestion and air pollution of the matter under consideration.

 

8.  City Council forward the report (October 16, 2017) from the Medical Officer of Health and the Deputy City Manager, Internal Corporate Services, to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, Public Health Ontario, Central Local Health Integration Network, Central East Local Health Integration Network, Central West Local Health Integration Network, Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network, Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network, the Toronto District School Board, the Toronto Catholic District School Board, le Conseil Scolaire Viamonde, le Conseil Scolaire Catholique MonAvenir, the Ontario Long Term Care Association, AdvantAge Ontario, the Home Child Care Association of Ontario, the Association of Day Care Operators of Ontario, the Ontario Landlords Association, Toronto Landlords, American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, the Ontario Association of Architects, the Building Industry and Land Development Association, the Ontario Home Builders’ Association, the Greater Toronto Area Clean Air Council, and the Pembina Institute.

c.  description of which parts of the property will be used for short-term rental (entire unit, number of bedrooms, secondary suite, other shared space);

12.  City Council direct that where Municipal Licensing and Standards is reviewing whether to refuse or cancel an operator's registration, the process by which the decision is reached shall be in writing unless the operator requests an oral or electronic hearing and the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards determines that there is a good reason to hold an oral or electronic hearing and, if so, by whom and how the hearing shall be conducted.

 

13.  City Council direct that, if an operator's registration has been refused or cancelled pursuant to this process, the operator cannot reapply to the registry for one year.

Reducing Health Risks from Traffic-Related Air Pollution (TRAP) in Toronto
City Council Decision

City Council on December 5, 6, 7 and 8, 2017, adopted the following:

 

1. City Council direct the Director, Environment and Energy Division, in collaboration with the Medical Officer of Health, to:

 

a. work with staff from City Planning, Toronto Building, Children's Services, Long-Term Care Homes and Services, Facilities Management, Transportation Services, Engineering and Construction Services, Parks, Forestry and Recreation, the Toronto Public Library, and other appropriate City divisions and agencies, to develop feasible best practices on how to reduce exposure to traffic-related air pollution, and facilitate their implementation at City facilities;

 

b. develop guidance to assist appropriate City agencies, corporations, and divisions in establishing traffic-related air pollution mitigation measures at City-owned sites located within 500 metres of roads with annual average traffic volumes of 100,000 vehicles or more per day, and within 100 metres of roads with annual average traffic volumes of 15,000 vehicles or more per day; and

 

c. develop best practices guidelines for new and existing buildings, in consultation with industry professionals, and raise awareness of these practices among school board staff, child care centre operators, long-term care facility operators, and residents, as well as builders, developers, designers, architects, engineers and other professionals.

 

2. City Council direct the General Manager, Transportation Services, in collaboration with the Director, Environment and Energy, to:

 

a. pursue, through the Toronto Congestion Management Plan (2016-2020), opportunities to reduce traffic-related air pollution; and

 

b. undertake an evaluation of the City's street sweeping service levels to identify any possible enhancements that could improve air quality along Toronto's roadways by:

 

1. adopting Ontario's interim 24-hour Ambient Air Quality Criterion for coarse particulate matter (PM10) of 50 micrograms per cubic metre of air (50 µg/m3) and the 24-hour Canadian Ambient Air Quality Standard for fine particulate matter (PM2.5) of 28 micrograms per cubic metre of air (28 µg/m3) as air quality benchmarks for the maximum desirable concentration of particulate matter in air along Toronto streets;

 

2. conducting an air quality monitoring study of ambient PM10 and PM2.5 concentrations along City streets to assess the impact of current street sweeping practices, and using the findings to inform street sweeping service levels;

 

3. developing an air quality monitoring program for ambient PM10 and PM2.5 concentrations to assess whether the interim 24-hour Ambient Air Quality Criterion for PM10 and the 24-hour Canadian Ambient Air Quality Standard for PM2.5 are met near roadways; and

 

4. giving first priority to meeting the air quality benchmarks at sensitive use properties, including child care centres, schools, and long-term care homes, within 500 metres of roads with annual average traffic volumes of 100,000 vehicles or more per day, and giving second priority to sensitive uses within 100 metres of roads with annual average traffic volumes of 15,000 vehicles or more per day, and identify a strategy for meeting the air quality benchmarks more broadly across the City giving priority to areas with elevated particulate matter concentrations and residential areas.

 

3. City Council request the Ontario Minister of Environment and Climate Change to:

 

a. undertake mobile air quality monitoring and air modelling along provincial highways including those located in Toronto to assess the relationship between traffic counts and air quality in areas adjacent to these highways, to estimate health risks, and provide trends over time;

 

b. estimate the cost of social, environmental, and health impacts associated with traffic-related air pollution, including health-care costs and years of life lost, and compare these with the costs of preventing emissions of, and exposure to, traffic-related air pollution; and

 

c. establish a special air management area focussed on land adjacent to Provincial highways in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area to facilitate development and implementation of provincial and municipal measures to reduce releases of, and exposure to, traffic-related air pollution along these highways.

 

4. City Council request the Ontario Minister of Finance to implement financing and funding mechanisms for building retrofits needed to reduce exposure to traffic-related air pollution, with a priority placed on supporting retrofits of buildings with sensitive uses (such as schools, child care centres and long-term care facilities) located near highways and roads with average daily traffic volumes of 100,000 vehicles or more.

 

5. City Council request the Ontario Minister of Transportation to review the feasibility of modifying street sweeping standards and practices on Provincial Highways to reduce levels of PM10 (particulate matter with an average diameter of 10 micrometres of less) in air along such highways.

 

6. City Council request the Federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change to:

 

a. harmonize Canadian environmental emissions standards for fuels, vehicles and engines with those applicable in the State of California;

 

b. identify a strategy to reduce emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases from older model heavy-duty diesel trucks; and

 

c. include in Canada's Clean Fuel Standard, limits to emissions of air pollutants, in addition to the proposed limits on greenhouse gases.

 

7.  City Council request the General Manager, Transportation Services, in each of the reports concerning traffic measures and controls, to identify and comment on the potential effects on congestion and air pollution of the matter under consideration.

 

8. City Council forward the report (October 16, 2017) from the Medical Officer of Health and the Deputy City Manager, Internal Corporate Services, to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, Public Health Ontario, Central Local Health Integration Network, Central East Local Health Integration Network, Central West Local Health Integration Network, Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network, Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network, the Toronto District School Board, the Toronto Catholic District School Board, le Conseil Scolaire Viamonde, le Conseil Scolaire Catholique MonAvenir, the Ontario Long Term Care Association, AdvantAge Ontario, the Home Child Care Association of Ontario, the Association of Day Care Operators of Ontario, the Ontario Landlords Association, Toronto Landlords, American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, the Ontario Association of Architects, the Building Industry and Land Development Association, the Ontario Home Builders’ Association, the Greater Toronto Area Clean Air Council, and the Pembina Institute.

39 Newcastle Street - Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendment Application
City Council Decision

City Council on December 5, 6, 7 and 8, 2017, adopted the following:

 

1.  City Council direct the City Solicitor and other appropriate City staff to attend the Ontario Municipal Board hearing to oppose the appeal of the Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendment application at 39 Newcastle Street (under File 16 198950 WET 06 OZ), in its current form, for the following reasons:

 

a.  the proposal is inconsistent with the Provincial Policy Statement;

 

b.  the proposal conflicts with the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe;

 

c.  the proposal does not conform with the City of Toronto Official Plan, including policies related to but not limited to Built Form, Public Realm, Economic Revitalization and Land Use and Regeneration Areas which state that a development framework for the area will be developed and that development should not proceed prior to approval of a Secondary Plan; and

 

d.  the proposal does not conform with the Mimico-Judson Secondary Plan (Official Plan Amendment 331), adopted by City Council on June 7, 2016 and currently under appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board, and is not consistent with the Mimico-Judson Urban Design Guidelines; in particular, the  application, in its current form, does not conform with the following matters:

 

i.  the Secondary Plan envisions two tall buildings on the subject lands with heights of up to 30-storeys (with a street wall height of 4-storeys), whereas the application proposes three tall towers (with  a street wall height of 4-storeys) having heights of 22, 30 and 36-storeys;

 

ii.  the Secondary Plan envisions the Mimico-Judson Greenway (multi-use pedestrian and cycling trail) to be located along the south limits of the subject site, whereas the Greenway is proposed along the south side of Newcastle Street and east side of Windsor Street;

 

iii.  the Secondary Plan requires a centralized public park to be located within Block D that would not be in shadow for seven continuous hours during the spring and summer equinoxes, whereas the current proposal shadows Block D and only allows for five continuous hours of sunlight on the future parkland during the  spring and summer equinoxes;

 

iv.  the Secondary Plan requires a minimum of 0.5 Floor Space Index of non-residential gross floor area for tall buildings, whereas 0.3 Floor Space Index of non-residential gross floor area is proposed; and

 

v.  the Secondary Plan requires that any portion of a development containing residential and other nsitive land uses shall be setback a minimum of 30 metres from the property line bordering the rail corridor to the south, whereas a setback of 22 metres is being proposed.

 

2.   City Council authorize City staff to continue discussions with the applicant to negotiate an appropriate development proposal that is in keeping with the Mimico-Judson Secondary Plan and Urban Design Guidelines.
