a - Review Order Paper

June 18, 2019 at 10:26 a.m. - Speaker Nunziata advised Council of the following:

 

Members, I will now review the Order Paper.

 

The Mayor has designated Item EX6.4, headed "Federal Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund - Update" and Item EX6.5, headed "Status Update - Toronto-Ontario Transit Responsibilities Realignment Review" as his Key Matters for this meeting. 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Members, before I review Member holds, I wish to make a ruling on Item TE6.61, regarding Road Safety at the intersection of Fleet Street, Bathurst Street and Lake Shore Boulevard West.

 

This Item has been submitted to Council without recommendation, pending a report from the General Manager, Transportation Services.

         

This matter relates to a permanent road closure.  A permanent road closure requires notice to the public and the opportunity to be heard at committee.  No notice was provided on this Item.  As a result, I am ruling Item TE6.61 out of order.  The Item will be resubmitted to the Toronto and East York Community Council for its June 25th meeting so that notice can be given. The General Manager, Transportation Services will report to the Toronto and East York Community Council on the matter.

 

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.

Status Update - Toronto-Ontario Transit Responsibilities Realignment Review
City Council Decision

City Council on June 18 and 19, 2019, adopted the following:

 

1.  City Council direct the City Manager to include accessibility as a key focus of ongoing transit responsibility realignment discussions with Metrolinx and the Government of Ontario. 

 

2.  City Council direct the City Manager to request the Minister of Transportation and the Chief Executive Officer, Metrolinx to consult the Toronto Transit Commission's Advisory Committee on Accessible Transit in the planning of future transit expansion projects.

 

3.  City Council request the City Manager, the Executive Director, Transit Expansion Office, and the Chief Executive Officer, Toronto Transit Commission to request the Ontario Minister of Transportation to continue with procurement and development for the Central Section of the proposed Ontario Line in so much as it is in-line with the City's approved Relief Line alignment, and that there are opportunities for schedule-compression through fast tracking.

 

4.  City Council request the City Manager, the Executive Director, Transit Expansion Office, and the Chief Executive Officer, Toronto Transit Commission to ensure that future negotiations with the Ontario Government and update reports to City Council include consideration for the impacts of proposed Provincial priority projects on the City's Transit Network Plan, and that any modelling for proposed changes in alignment from the City's Network Plan include an evaluation of network impacts under a Network Plan scenario, and any alternative proposed scenarios.

 

5.  Given that the Province has not shared with City of Toronto staff and the Toronto Transit Commission the new technology the Province will deploy on the proposed $10.9 billion Ontario Relief Line, City Council request the Deputy City Manager, Infrastructure and Development Services to report to the Executive Committee on the possible delays in the construction of the Relief Line and the strategies and plans needed to deal with the continued overcrowding on the Yonge Line that may be caused by those delays.
