Small Engine Equipment (Two-Stroke Engines) Greening Strategy for City Operations and the Broader Public

City Council Decision

City Council on May 25, 26 and 27, 2009, adopted the following:

 

1.         City Council request the General Managers of the Parks, Forestry and Recreation and Transportation Services Divisions to implement the accelerated small engine equipment replacement strategy outlined in the report (April 20, 2009) from Deputy City Manager Richard Butts, and according to the timeline in Appendix 2 of the report.

 

2.         The additional operating funds required to implement Part 1 above be included for consideration in the Parks, Forestry and Recreation Division’s 2010 operating budget submission.

 

3.         City Council request the General Managers of the Parks, Forestry and Recreation and Transportation Services Divisions, in consultation with the Director of the Purchasing and Materials Management Division, to develop small engine equipment (non/off road small spark ignition engine, under 19 kW) purchasing specifications that take into consideration the following:

 

i.          all new small engine equipment purchased by the City should meet or exceed, where applicable, the current phase small engine emission standards of Environment Canada or the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), whichever is more stringent;

ii.          all City contracts for outside work should specify that small engine equipment meets or exceeds, where applicable, the current phase small engine emission standards of Environment Canada or the US EPA, whichever is more stringent, or that the bidder or proponent have a plan in place prior to award of contract, to replace non-compliant current small engine emission equipment during the contract duration and use cleaner alternatives that meet or exceed the Environment Canada or US EPA standard, whichever is more stringent.

 

4.         City Council authorize the General Managers of the Parks, Forestry and Recreation and Transportation Services Divisions to donate retired small engine equipment that would normally go to auction to the Clean Air Foundation and the Recycling Council of Ontario for environmentally responsible disposal.

 

5.         City Council request the General Manager of the Parks, Forestry and Recreation Division to continue to refine park design and maintenance standards and alternative landscaping practices to reduce the use of small engine equipment in operations.

 

6.        The Mayor, on behalf of City Council, request the Minister of Environment Canada and the Director General, Legislative and Regulatory Affairs, Environment Canada, to review existing standards under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act for the import of small engine equipment to ensure that all Canadian standards meet or exceed the US EPA standards and that all individual products imported into Canada meet the minimum emission standard of the US EPA.

 

7.         City Council request the Director, Toronto Environment Office, to work with other City Divisions and Agencies, Boards and Commissions that use small engine equipment to ensure that emission reduction strategies are developed and implemented.

 

i.          The Director, Toronto Environment Office, report back to the Executive Committee in 2009 on the number of two-stroke engines used by City Agencies, Boards, Commissions and Corporations, and report on their plans for phase out of old two-stroke engine technology by staff and contractors.

 

8.         City Council request the Director, Toronto Environment Office, in consultation with the Medical Officer of Health, to develop and implement an education campaign for the general public, businesses and other institutions with the goal of reducing use of polluting, inefficient small engine equipment and raising awareness of the negative environmental impacts of older equipment and benefits of alternative technologies and practices.

Settlement of Appeal of Official Plan Amendment No. 38, Authorizing Section 37 Funding of Heritage Conservation District Studies

City Council Decision

City Council on May 25, 26 and 27, 2009, adopted the following:

 

1.         City Council adopt the recommendations in Confidential Attachment 1 of the report (April 17, 2009) from the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning and the City Solicitor.

 

2.         City Council authorize the public release of the confidential instructions in Attachment 1, at the end of the Council meeting.

 

The following instructions are now public:

 

1.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor to present the following modifications to Official Plan Amendment No. 38 to the Ontario Municipal Board as a settlement of the appeal by the Building Industry and Land Development Association:

 

             a.        The words in the text of the OPA and identified below in bold italics be deleted:

 

“305.    Areas where Funding of Heritage Conservation District Studies is an Eligible Section 37 Community Benefit.

 

Where Section 37 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P. 13, as amended, is used in developments within or in close proximity to those specific areas identified on the accompanying maps as Potential Heritage Conservation Districts, cash contributions to fund Heritage Conservation District studies will be eligible as community benefits.  Such contributions will be:

 

a.         subject to all provisions of Section 5.1.1 of this Plan except the requirement that community benefits be capital facilities and/or cash contributions toward specific capital facilities; and

 

b.         used for no purpose other than the Heritage Conservation District studies specified in the relevant Section 37 agreements or such capital facilities as are specified in the relevant Section 37 agreements.

 

One or both of the following criteria must be satisfied in order that a proposed development be considered to be within or in close proximity to a Potential Heritage Conservation District:

 

a.         the proposed development would likely have an impact on the heritage character of the Potential Heritage Conservation District; or

 

b.         the proposed development would benefit from the preservation of the heritage character of the Potential Heritage Conservation District.

 

The accompanying maps show two types of Potential Heritage Conservation Districts: those where studies and study area boundaries have not been authorized by City Council, identified on the accompanying maps by numbers; and those where Council has authorized Heritage Conservation District studies and has approved specific study area boundaries, identified on the accompanying maps by letters.  The boundaries shown for the former type are symbolic and general in nature, and to the extent that the respective text description for a particular District in accompanying Schedule B provides greater specificity regarding the boundaries, the text description will take precedence over the symbolic boundaries.  For the latter type, the specific study area boundaries authorized by Council are shown on the accompanying maps, and no text descriptions are provided.

 

For clarity, funding of Heritage Conservation District studies is not an eligible Section 37 community benefit with respect to developments proposed within the North York Centre, Sheppard East Subway Corridor or Central Finch Area Secondary Plans.

 

Schedules A and B below, and the attached maps, also form part of this policy.”

 

            b.         The text deleted above in Part 1a be replaced by the following:

 

“The former type is symbolic and general in nature and the existence and precise boundaries of a Heritage Conservation District will be determined after completion of a formal Heritage Conservation District study.  Schedule A: List of Potential Heritage Conservation Districts and Schedule B: Descriptions of Potential Heritage Conservation Districts are also general in nature.  For the latter type, the specific study area boundaries authorized by Council are shown on the accompanying maps and no text descriptions are provided.

 

Read together, the maps, the list and the written descriptions serve to help determine whether a proposed development is within or in close proximity to a Potential Heritage Conservation District through the application of the criteria set out above, and thus whether a cash contribution toward a Heritage Conservation District study is an eligible Section 37 community benefit.  They do not serve to determine the outcome of any Heritage Conservation District study or define the precise boundaries of any future Heritage Conservation District.”

 

       c.        In the section of Official Plan Amendment No. 38, entitled “Schedule B: Descriptions of Potential Heritage Conservation Districts”, the wording of each description be modified by inserting the word “Generally” or “generally” in the appropriate location in the last sentence of each description, so as to qualify the description of the boundaries of each Potential Heritage Conservation District.

 

The balance of Confidential Attachment 1 to the report (April 17, 2009) from the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning, and the City Solicitor remains confidential, in accordance with the provisions of the City of Toronto Act, 2006, as it contains information that is subject to litigation or potential litigation, including matters before administrative tribunals, affecting the municipality or local board.
