1e Development Application Review Fees - 2012 Operating Budget
Origin
(November 25, 2011) Report from the Deputy City Manager Cluster B
Summary

The purpose of this report is to summarize the results of the detailed review of development application costs and recommend a strategy to recover the City's full costs associated with reviewing development applications (Official Plan Amendment, Zoning By-law Amendment, Site Plan, Condominium etc).  The City's current costs for providing this particular service include a portion of City Planning's, and Legal Services costs.  However, other divisions directly involved in processing development applications (Technical Services, Transportation Services, Parks, Forestry and Recreation, Fire Services, Toronto Building, Solid Waste Management, and Toronto Water) do not recover their costs. 

 

The Development Application Review Service provides direct benefits to identifiable beneficiaries and therefore, in accordance with the City's recently adopted User Fee Policy should be fully cost recovered.  The Development Application Review Service represents an example of a user fee service for which the relevant programs have completed a comprehensive full costing model based on the principles of full cost recovery.  Every effort has been made to identify direct, indirect and capital costs associated with providing this service.  However, while the service satisfies the conditions for full cost recovery, only partial costs (approximately 66 percent) are currently being recovered.  This means that in contravention of best practice, property taxes are being used to subsidize a service that should otherwise be recovered from the beneficiaries or user of the service.

1.         That the proposed TTC fare increase referred to in Recommendation No. 1 be deferred to the December TTC meeting, and only considered as a last resort.

 

2.         That Recommendation No. 3 in the staff report be amended to include the words “and the Provincial Government” after the words “City of Toronto” so such recommendation now reads:

The Commission also approved the following motions:

3.         That the Chief General Manager be requested to report back to the December meeting on creative options on the current TTC Operating subsidy business model, including funding possibilities that do not rely entirely on the property tax base subsidy.

 

4.         That a report be brought to the next TTC meeting on a comparative cost analysis on operating Wheel-Trans services, including reducing the “service ratio” within TTC Wheel-Trans and the possibility to shift dialysis patients to alternate service providers.

 

5.         That a formal request be made to the Provincial and Federal Governments to increase the subsidy on the Operating and Capital Budgets and this recommendation be forwarded to City of Toronto Council for its endorsement.

 

6.         That the Chief General Manager be requested to review and report back to the December TTC meeting on the role of Metrolinx and the TTC on planning/operating transit responsibilities.
