Speaker Nunziata acknowledged that City Council was meeting on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.  Speaker Nunziata also acknowledged that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit.

 

Speaker Nunziata, introduced a video from the Royal Canadian Legion commemorating the one hundredth anniversary of the use of the Poppy as a symbol of Remembrance in Canada.

 

Speaker Nunziata called upon Mayor Tory to address City Council about Remembrance Week and the Year of the Poppy.

 

Mayor Tory addressed City Council by acknowledging the proclamation of Remembrance Week and by noting that the iconic and familiar symbol of the Poppy was brought about by the hard work of Canadian veterans and others including Madame Anna Guérin who encouraged the use of the Poppy, on behalf of the people of France, and presented the first Poppy wreath to Toronto Mayor Tommy Langton Church in 1921 at what is now called Old City Hall. Mayor Tory noted that the Royal Canadian Legion has marked 2021 as the Year of the Poppy in honour of Canadians who gave their life for their country, including almost 10,000 from Toronto alone. Mayor Tory told City Council that he was honoured to have helped unveil a new Poppy symbol on the Toronto sign, in Nathan Phillips Square, which will return for Remembrance Week observances and other military anniversaries in years to come. Mayor Tory encouraged Members of Council and all Torontonians to wear a Poppy in honour of Remembrance week and noted that the sale of Poppies helps the Royal Canadian Legion continue to provide services and support to its members. Mayor Tory encouraged Torontonians to take time to observe Remembrance Day on November 11 by attending one of the services, by visiting a cenotaph or by viewing Remembrance Day ceremonies live online. Mayor Tory acknowledged and thanked, on behalf of City Council, the contributions made by the Government of Canada, through the Veterans Affairs Commemorative Partnership program, in support of Remembrance Week ceremonies and thanked the Royal Canadian Legion for their support in the use of the Poppy symbol on the Toronto sign and on City vehicles throughout Remembrance Week.

 

Mayor Tory called on Bruce Stewart, District Sergeant-at-Arms and District Parade Marshall, District D, Royal Canadian Legion, to address City Council.

 

Bruce Stewart thanked Mayor Tory and encouraged Torontonians to observe Remembrance Day by attending a cenotaph or Remembrance Day service. Bruce Stewart informed City Council of a project he had been working on, the Veteran Banner Program, which will be highlighted in Coronation Park, High Park, and Colonel Sam Smith Park next year. Mr. Stewart expressed his thanks to City staff for their help and support bringing the Veteran Banner program to City parks in 2022.

 

Speaker Nunziata thanked Mr. Stewart for his remarks and reminded City Council that in 1998 City Council made a unanimous decision to exempt the Legion from paying property tax.

 

Speaker Nunziata advised Council of the following:

Strategic Investment and Property Acquisitions/Transfers

 

4. City Council adopt the following Principles to guide strategic real estate investment:

 

a. the City's real estate assets are to be optimized for City-wide benefit as part of the City-wide Real Estate Model and capital investment in real estate, including state-of-good-repair investments, will be prioritized with a City-wide lens;


b. existing real estate assets that are unlocked through portfolio optimization will be repurposed to meet program needs and City building opportunities as a first priority;


c. in the event that City Council determines that a sale of a real estate asset is the best way to maximize its value to the City, net proceeds will be reinvested into real estate assets to support the current and future ability to deliver City programs, either to fund the purchase of new real estate assets and expanded capacity, or to invest in state-of-good-repair as part of life-cycle asset management; and


d. the City may, from time to time, proactively acquire real estate assets where lands become available through unforeseen circumstances and/or without identified and/or immediate program requirements; such strategic real estate acquisitions will be consistent with the City-Wide Real Estate mandate to enable city building and support the City's corporate priorities.   

 

5. City Council adopt the Strategic Acquisition Policy set out in Attachment 3 to the report (October 13, 2021) from the Deputy City Manager, Corporate Services, and rescind the framework for Strategic Property Acquisitions approved by City Council on August 25, 26, 27, and 28, 2014 in Item 2014.EX44.22 and City Council amend General Condition (D) of Appendix B of Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 213, Real Property, to reflect this change.

7. City Council exempt the sites identified by City Council as part of the Housing Now Program from the direction in Part 6 above.

 

8. City Council amend the "Policy Governing Land Transactions Among City Agencies, Boards, Commissions and Departments and Proceeds from Sale of Surplus City-Owned Real Property" (Clause 1 of Report 9 of the Policy and Finance Committee, as adopted by City Council on June 18, 19 and 20, June 2002) as follows:


a. delete clause (7) so that all proceeds from future sales of any real estate assets are directed to the Land Acquisition Reserve Fund to fund future City-wide future real estate capital requirements, and


b. delete clause (9) so that if there is a jurisdictional transfer or sale of land under the jurisdiction of the Toronto Parking Authority which was purchased by the City with parking revenues, the land will no longer be valued at fair market value with all net proceeds going to the Parking Reserve Fund, and the Toronto Parking Authority will no longer be required to pay fair market value if it is receiving a jurisdictional transfer of land.

 

9. City Council amend the purpose for the Land Acquisition Reserve Fund in the Toronto Municipal Code, Chapter 227, Reserves and Reserve Fund to read: “Provides funding for various capital projects involving acquisitions of real estate assets and/or significant capital improvements to existing real estate assets to support City Programs and the City's city building objectives.”

13. City Council direct the Deputy City Manager, Corporate Services, in consultation with the Chief Executive Officer, CreateTO and the Executive Director, Housing Secretariat, to report back to the Executive Committee in the first quarter of 2022, as part of the next phase of implementation of the real estate model, with a process and selection criteria for identification of future sites for the Housing Now Program.

3.  City Council direct the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer to include, as part of 2022 recommended Operating Budget and the 2022 recommended tax policies, rates and ratios, effective for the 2022 taxation year, that:

4.  City Council adopt a tax rate reduction for the Subclass of 15 percent of the commercial property class tax rate, and City Council direct the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer to ensure that the recommended tax rate for the commercial property tax class be set so as to fully fund the costs of the tax rate reduction provided to the Subclass.

2.  City Council request the General Manager, Transportation Services, the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards and the General Manager, Economic Development and Culture, as part of their examination of the transition to a permanent program, to include consideration of the possibility of:

 

a. more permanent structures and locations as part of CaféTO;

 

b. the installations of permanent services for suitable CaféTO locations; and 

 

c. a longer term approval of CaféTO locations to provide more investment certainty.

 

3.  City Council authorize the General Manager, Transportation Services, in consultation with the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards, to establish a program for the review, approval and installation of curb lane/parklet cafés or public parklets without applicants having to comply with certain requirements of Municipal Code Chapter 742, Sidewalk Cafés, Parklets and Marketing Displays, from May 1, 2022 until November 7, 2022.

 

4.  In establishing a program under Part 3 above, City Council direct that the General Manager, Transportation Services and/or the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards, shall consider:

 

a. which requirements from Municipal Code Chapter 742, Sidewalk Cafés, Parklets and Marketing Displays should apply to curb lane/parklet cafés or public parklets under the program;

 

b. appropriate guidelines for the General Manager, Transportation Services and/or the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards to review and approve the curb lane/parklet cafés or public parklets under the program;

d. advice from the Medical Officer of Health to ensure the health and safety of all persons using the curb lane/parklet cafés or public parklets under the program; and

 

e. requirements for the location, materials, usage, maintenance and removal of the curb lane/parklet cafés or public parklets under the program to ensure the health and safety of all users of City highways, including:

 

i. that a café or parklet on a local road be closed and cleared of customers by 11:00 p.m. unless hours of operation have been imposed previously by a Community Council for an existing café or parklet area, in which case both the existing and the extended café or parklet area be operated in accordance with the Community Council-imposed hours;

 

ii. where conditions other than hours of operation have been imposed previously by Community Council for an existing café or parklet area, that both the existing and the extended café or parklet area must be operated in accordance with the Community Council-imposed conditions; and

 

iii. where conditions have been imposed by Community Council on sidewalk cafés, curb lane/parklet cafés or public parklets in similar circumstances, that those Community Council-imposed conditions should apply.

 

5.  City Council request the General Manager, Transportation Services to develop and implement an operational policy that ensures curb lane café operators make noticeable and sustained use of their assigned space, or be faced with the potential removal of their café area, at the discretion of the General Manager, Transportation Services or the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards, with the policy to be developed in consideration of maintaining the aesthetic value of local streetscapes and restoring a balance of curbside uses.

 

6.  City Council authorize the General Manager, Transportation Services and/or the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards to approve applications to install and maintain curb lane/parklet cafés or public parklets where the application complies with the program adopted by the General Manager, Transportation Services, under Part 3 above, and where the approval conflicts with Municipal Code Chapter 742, Sidewalk Cafés, Parklets and Marketing Displays, the approval of the General Manager, Transportation Services and/or the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards shall prevail to the extent of the conflict; and inform the local Councillor of the approved curb lane/parklet cafés or public parklets in their ward.

  

7.  City Council waive application, transfer and permit fees required under Municipal Code Chapter 742, Sidewalk Cafés, Parklets and Marketing Displays, and Municipal Code Chapter 441, Fees and Charges, for any application, transfer or permit for a sidewalk café, curb lane/parklet café or public parklet received in the 2022 calendar year.

c. insert the phrase "either issued a permit or granted an approval for that purpose by the General Manager, Transportation Services or Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards, under Chapter 742, Sidewalk Cafés Parklets and Marketing Displays" after the phrase "where an applicant has been".

 

9.  City Council authorize the General Manager, Transportation Services and/or Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards when approving a curb lane/parklet café under the CaféTO program, to confirm that the City of Toronto does not object to the temporary physical extension of liquor sales under Section 97 of Regulation 719 under the Liquor Licence Act for that approved area and to withdraw this confirmation if the operator of a sidewalk café, curb lane/parklet café or public parklet, in the opinion of the General Manager, Transportation Services or the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards, subsequently fails to comply with the CaféTO program, applicable City By-laws or policies, or municipal or provincial orders.

  

10.  City Council request the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning to report to the Planning and Housing Committee in the first quarter of 2022 on whether to extend the City-wide Temporary Use Zoning By-laws that ease restrictions on outdoor patios on private property.

13.  City Council amend Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 742, Sidewalk Cafés, Parklets and Marketing Displays, as follows:

 

a. delete sections 742-2.3,742-3.2 A. (2) and 742-4.3 B. (2) to remove the process for notice and the authority for the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards to refuse an application for a sidewalk café if the City receives multiple objections to the application from members of the public during the 21-day period of public notice;

 

b. delete section 742-2.2 A. (2) to remove the requirement that an applicant must submit a letter signed by the owner of the adjoining property of the proposed sidewalk café, public parklet or marketing display indicating that the owner does not object to the application if the applicant is not the owner of the adjoining property;

 

c. amend sections 742.9.4 A. and B. to add the words "or occupant" after the words "property owner" so that where a permit holder or applicant wishes to extend their permit area in front of an adjacent property, the Executive Director, Municipal Licensing and Standards will accept a letter from either the property owner or occupant of the adjacent property - and not just the property owner as currently worded - to consent to or revoke the consent for the use of the area in front of that adjacent property;

 

d. add the following new subsections D and E to section 742-9.4:

 

D. Despite Subsection A, where an applicant or permit holder has sought to contact the adjacent property owner through reasonable methods and has not received a response, the Executive Director may allow a permit area for a marketing display or sidewalk café to extend across the front of that adjacent property, or across the curbside area or parking area of that adjacent property in the case of a parklet café, where an applicant or permit holder has provided the Executive Director with proof in a form satisfactory to the Executive Director of their efforts to contact the adjacent property owner.

 

E. Should the Executive Director receive a letter from the adjacent property owner or occupant objecting to a permit area extension granted under Subsection D, the Executive Director will amend the permit area to remove the portion of the permit area which extends across the front of that adjacent property, and the reduction in permit area will be effective as of 30 days after notice is provided to the permit holder.

 

e. delete section 742-10.1 A. (1) to remove the condition that a permit area for a sidewalk café must require a minimum separation distance of 30 metres from the closest part of the permit area to the nearest lot in a Residential Zone Category or Residential Apartment Zone Category;

 

f. delete section 742-10.1 A. (3) to remove the condition that a permit area for a sidewalk café must require a minimum separation of six metres from the closest part of the permit area to the extended boundary of a lot in a Residential Zone or Residential Apartment Zone Category on the opposite side of the street across from the proposed permit area;

 

g. amend Section 742-10.7 by defining fencing to include delineating materials; and

 

h. amend Section 742-10.9 to require that propane heaters are installed and operated in conformity with the necessary specifications and regulations but remove the requirement that documentation be submitted to the City prior to their use so that the section now reads as follows:

 

§ 742-10.9. Portable propane heaters.

 

A. No permit holder shall install or operate a portable propane heater on a permit area unless:

 

(1) the permit area is for a frontage café, parklet café or public parklet; and

 

(2) the portable propane heater is:

 

(a) installed and operated in conformity with the manufacturer’s instructions and specifications, including clearance from combustibles and secured to the permit area utilizing the manufacturer’s listed parts;

2022 Shelter Infrastructure Plan, Community Engagement Review and Amendments to Contracts and Purchase Orders to Support Shelter Services
City Council Decision

City Council on November 9, 10 and 12, 2021, adopted the following:

 

1.  City Council reiterate its requests to the Federal and Provincial Governments to:


a.  work with the City of Toronto to develop a coordinated approach to new refugee claimant arrivals;


b.  continue to provide temporary accommodations for refugee claimant arrivals at the border or place of entry until they have a permanent housing plan in place; and


c.  develop a regional response to place new refugee claimant arrivals in interim housing where there is capacity.

 

2.  City Council approve the 2022 Shelter Infrastructure Plan in Attachment 1 to the report (October 6, 2021) from the General Manager, Shelter, Support and Housing Administration, the Executive Director, Corporate Real Estate Management and the Chief Procurement Officer and City Council authorize the General Manager, Shelter, Support and Housing Administration to enter into new or amend existing agreements, other than leases or other property transaction documents for which delegated authority has been granted to Corporate Real Estate Management, as required, to open and operate shelters outlined in the 2022 Shelter Infrastructure Plan on terms and conditions satisfactory to the General Manager, Shelter, Support and Housing Administration and in a form satisfactory to the City Solicitor.

 

3.  City Council authorize the General Manager, Shelter, Support and Housing Administration to enter into new or amend existing agreements, other than leases or other property transaction documents for which delegated authority has been granted to Corporate Real Estate Management, to maintain or add required respite spaces and shelter beds and respond to urgent or unanticipated need to relocate shelters or 24-hour respite sites and 24-hour drop-ins on terms and conditions satisfactory to the General Manager, Shelter, Support and Housing Administration and in a form satisfactory to the City Solicitor.

 

4.  City Council authorize that, in the context of the acquisition or lease of a property for the purpose of a shelter site, the local Councillor shall be briefed in accordance with the process approved by City Council in Item CD24.7, headed "2018 Shelter Infrastructure Plan and Progress Report", and such engagement shall also be considered to have satisfied the requirement for consultation in Appendix B, Section (A) in City of Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 213, Real Property, where the transaction is being implemented through the real estate authority delegated to staff under City of Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 213, Real Property.

 

5.  City Council request the General Manager, Shelter, Support and Housing Administration to prepare and publicly publish a 2022 Work Plan in the first quarter of 2022 that clearly explains where net shelter spaces and housing units will be provided to fully make up for the capacity of any leases for temporary emergency programs when they end.
 

6.  City Council request the General Manager, Shelter, Support and Housing Administration to take appropriate measures to provide adequate shelter capacity in response to unanticipated demands on the system, above and beyond the 2022 Shelter Infrastructure Strategy, including but not limited to, making the Federal and Provincial Governments aware of additional requirements for resources and other supports.
