Committee Recommendations

The Community Development and Recreation Committee recommends that:

 

1.         City-owned and operated outdoor artificial ice rinks not open earlier in the 2009 annual winter skating season due to budgetary constraints.

 

2.         The General Manager of Parks, Forestry and Recreation review this request and a menu of options as part of the Division’s 2010 operating budget submission.

Origin
(January 21, 2009) Report from General Manager, Parks, Forestry and Recreation
Summary

The purpose of this report is to respond to a request by the Community Development and Recreation Committee on the opening of all City outdoor ice rinks at the same time as Nathan Phillips Square commencing fall 2009.  

 

The additional costs associated with opening all 49 city-owned and operated outdoor rinks earlier in the season are substantial and cannot be absorbed in the Parks, Forestry and Recreation operating budget. Currently, there are five outdoor rinks that are opened earlier in the season – Nathan Phillips Square, Mel Lastman Square, Albert Campbell Square, Rennie Park and Dufferin Grove Park. The latter four rinks are scheduled to open on November 28, 2009, a week after Nathan Phillips Square, which will open one week earlier (on November 21, 2009), to coincide with the Cavalcade of Lights event.

 

As well as the budget constraints, this request would be difficult to administer in 2009, due to the preset work scheduling of fall seasonal clean up and maintenance activities, which are timed to end prior to the current scheduling of the winter outdoor rink seasonal maintenance activities and operations, which includes staff hiring and training, in order to provide outdoor skating opportunities to the public. 

 

For the 2009-2010 outdoor skating season, it is not recommended that all 49 outdoor rinks be opened at the same time as Nathan Phillips Square due to the above-noted cost constraints and operational difficulties. However, Parks, Forestry and Recreation staff will consider this request in the development of the 2010 operating budget.

Origin
(January 22, 2009) Report from General Manager, Parks, Forestry and Recreation, and the Acting Executive Director, Social Development, Finance and Administration
Summary

This report responds to a Council direction to review the City’s relationship with and interest in the Marcus Garvey Centre for Leadership and Education (MGCLE) which occupies a City-owned facility at 160 Rivalda Road. The Centre, which was established to provide leadership development and training skills to African-Canadian youth in the Jane-Finch and Jamestown priority neighbourhoods, has very limited sources of revenue and has not been able to meet its programming objectives and financial obligations. Because the Centre has been unable to consistently pay utility bills, these costs have been assumed by Parks, Forestry and Recreation on behalf of the Centre.

 

A City staff team has reviewed the situation of the MGCLE and concluded that the Centre has the potential to play a valuable role in serving youth in underserved neighbourhoods. This report recommends that the current lease with MGCLE be terminated and replaced with a one-year lease covering a portion of the space in the facility appropriate to the Centre’s current needs. The remainder of the facility would be leased to another organization. The report also recommends that the amount of $63,409.25, owing to the City by the Centre for utility costs from 2002 to 2008, be forgiven. The report further recommends that Parks, Forestry and Recreation pay the utility costs of the Centre until the expiry of the new lease and that the Executive Director of Social Development, Finance and Administration and the General Manager of Parks, Forestry and Recreation report back to the Community Development and Recreation Committee in February 2010 on the financial viability of MGCLE and recommend whether the lease with the organization should be renewed.

 

Contingent upon the outcome of this review, City Council has approved allocation of $40,000 from the Service Development Investment Program to assist MGCLE. Staff from Social Development, Finance and Administration will continue to work with the MGCLE Board of Directors to resolve the governance and strategic planning issues it faces.
