Motions (City Council)
a - Review Order Paper

January 31, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. - Speaker Nunziata advised Council of the following:

 

Members, I will now review the Order Paper.

 

       We have 12 deferred items on this agenda.

         

Items EX29.12, EX29.23, CD24.9, ED25.3, ED25.5, GM23.8, PE23.3, PW25.10, EY23.73, Y25.40, NY26.2 and MM36.1.

 

          The details of these deferred items are listed on pages 3 and 4 of the Order Paper.       

 

          The Mayor has designated the following Items as his Key Matters for this meeting:

 

The first Key Matter will be Item CD25.5, headed "Review of Current Winter Respite and Shelter Services During the Recent Cold Weather"

 

The Second Key Matter will be Item EX30.5, headed "Tax Policy Tools to Support Businesses".

 

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

 

I also propose that the following deferred Items be considered together:

 

Item EY23.73 on Draft Approval of Condominium - 2522-2542 Keele Street - Integrity, Transparency, Accountability and Fairness in the Planning Process and Item EY25.40 on Status Report - 2522-2542 Keele Street - Draft Plan of Standard Condominium Application. 

         

Notices of Motions are scheduled to be dealt with at 2 p.m. tomorrow only if the Mayor's Key Matters have been completed.

 

I propose that City Council set a time for a closed session, if required, later in the meeting.

 

Members of Council, before I take additional holds, wish to advise Council on two matters that should be withdrawn from the agenda.  I also need to make a ruling.

 

First, I have been advised by the City Solicitor that Item CC36.11, a pending report on a request for direction regarding 400 Front Street West will not be coming to this meeting.  That item will be withdrawn from the agenda.

 

The City Solicitor has also advised that Member Motion MM36.2, requesting attendance at the Toronto Local Appeal Body Hearing for 821 Carlaw Avenue, Appeal of Committee of Adjustment Decision was dealt with under delegated authority during the Council recess period in December. That Item is now redundant and will also be withdrawn from the agenda.

 

Last, I wish to rule on Item SC27.12 regarding a lane designation at Victoria Park Avenue and Dawes Road.  Staff have reviewed this matter and have advised me that this item falls within the jurisdiction of more than one Community Council and should have been submitted to the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee.  As a result, I am ruling this Item out of order in its current form. The City Clerk will submit this matter to the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee for consideration.

 

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. 

 

Once the Order Paper has been approved by Council, any change will need a two-thirds vote. 


1 - Motion to Amend Item moved by Councillor Paula Fletcher (Carried)

That City Council consider Item CC36.12 headed "Ombudsman Toronto Report: An Investigation into Toronto Community Housing Corporation's Medical and Safety at Risk Priority Transfer Process for Tenants" immediately after Member Motions on Thursday, February 1, 2018.


2 - Motion to Amend the Order Paper moved by Councillor Sarah Doucette (Carried)

That City Council consider Items CC36.13 headed "Office of the Integrity Commissioner 2017 Annual Report" and EX30.17 headed "Review of Code of Conduct for Members of Local Boards (Restricted Definition), including Adjudicative Boards, the Toronto Investment Board and the Realty Agency Board" as the second and third items after Member Motions on Thursday, February 1, 2018 and that the Integrity Commissioner be requested to make a presentation on CC36.13.

Bill 139 - Proposed Transition Regulation Associated with the Amendments to the Provinceís Land Use Planning Appeal System
City Council Decision

City Council on January 31 and February 1, 2018, adopted the following:

 

1.  City Council express its appreciation to the Province with regard to advancing the changes to the Planning Act.

 

2.  City Council advise the Province that, if Bill 139 is not proclaimed into force until April of 2018, then there could be potentially 380 privately-initiated developments in the City of Toronto, representing 130,000 residential units, including many affordable housing units, that could be appealed for adjudication under the current system, and that as a result of the delay in the passing of Bill 139 into law coupled with the proposed regulations, there will likely be significant delays in delivering a significant portion of these housing units in the City of Toronto. 

 

3.  City Council request the Province to proclaim Bill 139, Building Better Communities and Conserving Watersheds Act, 2017 to be in force at the earliest possible date.

 

4.  City Council request the Ontario Municipal Board to prioritize the disposition of municipally initiated Official Plan and Zoning by-law amendments still subject to the existing Planning Act regime.

 

5.  City Council forward this Item to the Minister of Municipal Affairs and the Attorney General for their information.

 

6.  City Council request the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning and the City Solicitor to report to the April 5, 2018 meeting of the Planning and Growth Management Committee on the anticipated resources required to process development applications in anticipation of the implementation of Bill 139.

Inclusionary Zoning
City Council Decision

City Council on January 31 and February 1, 2018, adopted the following:

 

1.  City Council adopt the following and forward its decision to the Province as the City's response to the proposed inclusionary zoning regulations:

 

Recommendation 1: The proposed regulation should be amended to respect the fact that the municipality is in the best position to assess its needs and establish an inclusionary zoning framework that takes into consideration the full range of housing needs, market conditions, and aligned policy and program opportunities.

 

Recommendation 2: The proposed regulation should be amended to explicitly provide for the opportunity to create new affordable purpose-built rental housing.

 

Recommendation 3: The Province should work with the municipality to review current and projected rental housing development, including understanding the market profile of new rental housing projects. Further, the Province should consult with municipalities and other stakeholders on the merits of extending the regulation to any or all of the new purpose-built rental housing market.

 

Recommendation 4: The regulation should provide for municipal flexibility to set reasonable set aside rates based on the local context, planned environment, and relevant program funding and incentives, with the principle that a minimum of 10 percent of the units or gross floor area be established as the unit set aside rate.

 

Recommendation 5: The regulation should provide for municipal decision making for measures and incentives as municipalities are in the best position to respond to local market conditions.

 

Recommendation 6: The regulation should allow for inclusionary zoning to be used as part of a Community Planning Permit System area or in areas where the zoning has been updated to reflect minimum and maximum densities in accordance with provincial policy.

 

Recommendation 7: The regulations should enable municipalities to set an equity sharing model that is fair and equitable.

 

Recommendation 8: The regulations should enable municipalities to set priorities based on local housing need and align program administration with administrative models that are already in place.

 

Recommendation 9: Off-site provisions in the regulation should be amended to allow for municipal flexibility in permitting100 percent inclusionary zoning buildings.

 

2.  City Council request the Province to amend the proposed inclusionary zoning regulations as set out in Part 1 above.

 

3.  City Council request the Province to further consult municipalities and stakeholders on an appropriate and flexible implementation framework for inclusionary zoning prior to proclaiming the regulation.

 

4.  City Council request all municipalities in Ontario and the Association of Municipalities of Ontario to consider supporting the City of Toronto's recommendations as set out in Part 1 above.
