Proposal to Stop-Up, Close and Sell the Lane between
Lots 73 & 74, Plan 1665, West of 2620 St. Clair Avenue West
Ward 27. York Humber
The York Community Council recommends the adoption of the report dated May 14,
1999 from the Commissioner of Corporate Services:
The York Community Council reports, for the information of Council, having requested the
Commissioner of Corporate Services to report on the impact of this proposal on the residents
of White Avenue and on the abutting property owner's future plans for this property.
The York Community Council submits the following report (May 14, 1999) from the
Commissioner of Corporate Services:
To authorize the stopping-up, closing, and offering for sale the lane between Lots 73 & 74 on
Plan 1665, west of 2620 St. Clair Avenue West.
The City will realize revenue from the eventual sale of these lands.
It is recommended that:
(1)the lane between Lots 73 & 74 on Plan 1665, shown hatched on the attached plan, be
declared surplus to City requirements, stopped-up, closed, and offered for sale to the abutting
owner/s, subject to the reservation of any necessary easements for municipal services or public
(2)the appropriate City officials be authorized to give notice to the public of the intention to
stop-up, close, and sell the subject lane; and
(3)the appropriate City officials be authorized and directed to take the necessary action to
give effect thereto.
The subject property is in the former City of York.
The abutting owner at 2620 St. Clair Avenue West has requested that the City take the steps
necessary to sell the lane so that it can be assembled with his adjacent holdings. The same
owner holds property to the east and west side of the lane.
In 1993, the former City of York received a formal application from Zdeno Cycle Warehouse
Ltd. to purchase the lane immediately west of its property. It appears that this file was not
processed to its conclusion. Zdeno Cycle Warehouse Ltd. have recently advised that they are
still interested in acquiring the lane.
The lane measures approximately 4.57 m (15 feet) x 11.13 m (36.52 feet) irregular and has
been used exclusively by Zdeno Cycle for outdoor storage for several years.
A poll was taken to determine if there exists any municipal interest in retaining this property
and no interest was expressed in this parcel of land.
The property is not required for municipal purposes and should be declared surplus and sold to
the abutting owner/s.
