Origin
(July 4, 2017) Report from the Chief Executive Officer, Exhibition Place
Summary

This report details the proposed State-of-Good Repair (SOGR) 2018 Capital Works Program as part of a ten-year program submission to the City of Toronto.  The City practice is to set budget targets for a ten-year cycle, although detailed review is done on an annual basis.  This review procedure allows the Board to adjust its current program each subsequent year based on changing needs, building assessments, legislative changes, mandates and priorities.  Due to the budget date submission schedule mandated by the City, this proposed program has been submitted to the City Financial Planning Division on June 12, 2017 with the understanding that the Board reserves the right to make changes to its content and Exhibition Place will be notifying the City of any changes or directions made by the Board.

 

The SOGR Capital Budget debt target set by City Council for 2018 is $4.965 million.  The SOGR Capital Budget projects based on building assessments completed meets this target.  However, an additional sum of $0.500 million in excess of the 2018 debt target has also been proposed for the relocation of the Garden of the Greek Gods below the line to address strategic issues that have been raised by the Board over the last year.  An additional amount is also being recommended to fund replacement of the underground electrical high voltage utilities for $18.0 million over nine years (2019 to 2027).

 

Even with the additional funding being recommended, the Net Accumulated Backlog at the end of 2018 for the grounds stands at $25.365 million.
