Origin
(July 21, 2010) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District
Summary

The application was made prior to January 1, 2007 and is not subject to the new provisions of the Planning Act and the City of Toronto Act, 2006.

 

The applicant seeks permission to construct an eight (8) storey residential condominium consisting of 66 dwelling units with retail at grade at 1205 Queen Street West. Access to parking and loading for the proposed building will be from the lane on the south edge of the property and a total of 64 parking spaces will be provided.

 

Mid-rise housing is an important form of development creating new housing and shopping opportunities and helps the City address reurbanization objectives on Avenues.

 

Queen Street West continues to experience growth and reinvestment east of the CNR/CPR railway corridor. This is the first project proposed for the area west of the rail corridor and represents a form of development that is consistent and compatible with its surroundings.

 

This report recommends approval of the application to amend the Zoning By-law to permit the proposed development.

Decision Advice and Other Information

The Toronto and East York Community Council held a statutory public meeting on August 17, 2010, and notice was given in accordance with the Planning Act.

Origin
(July 23, 2010) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District
Summary

This application was made on or after January 1, 2007 and is subject to the new provisions of the Planning Act and the City of Toronto Act, 2006.

 

This application proposes to convert the existing, vacant public school at 180 Shaw Street into a centre for arts and community programming. The centre will be run by Artscape and will consist of non-profit arts and community use space.

 

The proposal is to convert a vacant school site to a centre for non-profit arts and community uses such as artist studios, galleries, offices for small non profit agencies and a small cafe. The site is located in an area identified as having the fifth highest concentration of artists in all of Canada, many of whom need dedicated space to create and sell their art. The proposed uses are low impact and will not significantly increase the demands on the site or surrounding Neighbourhood. Further, the number of people using the site will be significantly less than when the site was used as a public school.

 

This report reviews and recommends approval of the applications to amend the Official Plan and Zoning By-law.

Refusal Report - 288A, 290 and 294 Adelaide Street West - Zoning Amendment Application
Committee Decision

The Toronto and East York Community Council deferred consideration of the report dated July 20, 2010, from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District, respecting the Refusal Report - 288A, 290 and 294 Adelaide Street West - Zoning Amendment Application, until its meeting to be held in January 2011.

Origin
(July 20, 2010) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District
Summary

This application was made on or after January 1, 2007 and is subject to the new provisions of the Planning Act and the City of Toronto Act, 2006. It proposes a 37-storey mixed use building, 122.4 metres high, including mechanicals, at 288A, 290 and 294 Adelaide Street West.  The proposed development includes 281 apartments, approximately 276 square metres of retail space, 1562 square metres of office space, an at grade loading space, an 86 space, 5 level commercial parking garage above grade, and 4 levels of residential parking underground with 160 parking spaces.

 

The proposal represents over-development of the property contrary to the planning framework for King-Spadina. The building height that exceeds the zoning by-law permissions by 87.4 metres is significantly out of scale with the existing and planned built form context and creates negative impacts on the public realm and abutting and nearby properties that affects their use and enjoyment. Its approval would set a negative precedent for future development that undermines the vision for this area of the City. It also includes a 5-level above-grade commercial parking garage that promotes the use of private automobiles over transit and gives priority to commuter and all-day parking in the downtown contrary to the objectives of the Official Plan. City Planning recommends that Council refuse the zoning by-law amendment application.

Decision Advice and Other Information

Origin
(July 23, 2010) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District
Summary

This application was made on December 28, 2006 and subsequently revised most recently on April 14, 2010 and is subject to the new provisions of the Planning Act and the City of Toronto Act, 2006.

 

This application proposes to amend the Official Plan as it pertains to a portion of the site at 3 Belsize Drive and to amend the Zoning By-law for the entire site at 1955-1985 Yonge Street, 3 Belsize Drive and 18-22 Millwood Road.  These amendments and a permission to demolish the existing rental apartments on site would allow the construction of the proposed 8-storey mixed use building with retail at grade and 206 residential units including 33 rental replacement units.

 

The City Planning Division is recommending approval of the proposed development and the application for a permit to demolish the residential rental units under Municipal Code 667 based on its location on an Avenue and on its planning and design attributes which include:

 

a.         the proposed residential units are comprised of a mix of  tenures (condominium and rental apartment units) and a mix of unit sizes ranging from bachelor to 3 bedroom units;

 

b.         the proposed development provides a transition in scale and density as it steps down from the Yonge Street mixed use corridor to the low density neighbourhood to the east;

 

c.         the proposed development maintains adequate sunlight for residents in abutting neighbourhoods and at pedestrian level on Yonge Street;

 

d.         the applicant’s Avenue Segment Review (as adopted by staff) indicates that incremental redevelopments of the same general scale (but as modified in the future by the Mid-Rise Performance Standards) within the identified Avenue Segment will not negatively impact the neighbourhood to the east;

 

e.         the proposed new commercial bays on Yonge Street would provide updated retail and service space which would attract new commercial and employment activity to the area;

 

f.          the inclusion of grade-related units on Belsize Drive assist in the integration of the proposed building into the neighbourhood to the east;

 

g.         the site is within a block of the Davisville subway station and has excellent transit connections to most points within the City;

 

h.         the site is on Yonge Street with close proximity to retail, service and entertainment facilities and places of employment; and

 

i.          the Section 37 benefits that would be secured as a result of approval and construction of this development including; the replacement of all 33 existing rental apartment units with new rental units of equivalent size within the new building and funding for either or both the Neshama Accessible Playground at Oriole Park and the new park which is to be developed south of the TTC bus barns at Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue West.

Summary

This application was made on February 12, 2008 and is subject to the new provisions of the Planning Act and the City of Toronto Act, 2006.

 

This application proposes to redevelop the existing commercial surface parking lot at 203 Jarvis Street with a 20-storey hotel containing 261 guest rooms with a proposed building height of 61 metres (66 metres including mechanical penthouse) and a gross floor area of 14,702 square metres.  The applicant proposes 69 vehicle parking spaces within three levels of underground parking accessed via a car elevator.  The hotel would include limited grade-related retail such as a coffee shop or convenience store for public use with a total area of approximately 104 square metres.

 

The proposal is an appropriate development for the property as it provides for commercial development of an underutilized lot within the downtown.  The site is a corner property with frontage on both Jarvis Street and Shuter Street. There is already a mix of commercial and residential land uses along Jarvis Street and the proposed hotel is an appropriate and compatible land use.

 

This report reviews and recommends approval of the application to amend the Zoning By-law.

(July 28, 2010) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District
Summary

This application was made on November 20, 2008 and is subject to the new provisions of the Planning Act and the City of Toronto Act, 2006.

 

This application proposes the development of a 32-storey residential tower on top of a 4-storey mixed-use podium for a total of 36-storeys and 271 dwelling units.  The building height would be 112 metres and 118 metres to mechanical penthouse.

 

The 4-storey podium incorporates 4 levels of above grade parking for residents of the residential tower component at 5-7 the Esplanade.  Previous approvals granted 6 levels of underground parking for the residents of the “L-Tower” residential condominium at 1 Front Street East (now 8 The Esplanade).  A total of 523 parking spaces will be provided on site with 373 of those for use by the adjacent building proposed at 1 Front Street East (now 8 The Esplanade).  The parking area would be accessed from The Esplanade, at the east end of the site abutting an existing driveway serving 2 Church Street, which is a Toronto Parking Authority (TPA) garage.

 

The floor space index for the residential and mixed-use component of this project, inclusive of the above grade parking podium, is approximately 11 times the area of the lot.

 

The proposed Official Plan and Rezoning applications are appropriate for the development of this site as it provides for residential mixed-use development on an underutilized site combining a surface parking lot with surplus lands formerly owned by GO Transit.  The site is within the downtown core along Yonge Street and abutting the Financial District, and near Union Station and the Yonge/University subway line.  There is already a mix of commercial and residential land uses along The Esplanade and the proposed 36-storey development is an appropriate and compatible land use.

 

This report reviews and recommends approval of the applications to amend the Official Plan and Zoning By-law.

(July 29, 2010) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District
Summary

This application seeks amendments to the Official Plan and the former East York Zoning By-law 6752, as amended, to permit the construction of a two and a half-storey single-family dwelling at 2 True Davidson Drive.  The applicant is the owner of a block within the Governor’s Bridge subdivision (Block 63).  The proposed amendments relate to a subject site within the block that will be created as a remnant parcel once certain land conveyances to the City and the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority are completed pursuant to an applicable Subdivision Agreement.  The subject site is located outside of the original zoning amendment area applicable to the lots within the plan of subdivision for the Governor’s Bridge area.

 

The applicant has appealed the Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendment applications to the Ontario Municipal Board due to Council’s failure to make a decision on the applications within the time prescribed by the Planning Act.  The Site Plan application has also been appealed.  A one week OMB hearing has been scheduled for the week of October 25, 2010.

 

This report seeks Council’s direction with respect to the Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendments given that a Final Report was never submitted.

Origin
(June 23, 2010) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District
Summary

This application was made on or after January 1, 2007 and is subject to the new provisions of the Planning Act and the City of Toronto Act, 2006.

 

This application proposes a 12 storey mixed-use building at 2055 and 2057 Danforth Avenue with retail uses at grade, 148 residential units and 2 levels of below grade parking accessed off of Woodbine Avenue.

 

The City Planning Division is recommending approval of the proposed development based on its location on an Avenue and on its planning and design attributes which include:

 

a.         the proposed development provides a transition in scale and density as it steps down from the Danforth Avenue mixed use corridor to the low density neighbourhood;

 

b.         the proposed development maintains adequate sunlight for residents in abutting neighbourhoods and at pedestrian level on Danforth Avenue;

 

c.         the applicant’s Avenue Segment Review (as adopted by staff) indicates that incremental redevelopments of the same general scale (but as modified in the future by the Mid-Rise Performance Standards) within the identified Avenue Segment will not negatively impact the adjacent neighbourhoods;

 

d.         the site is within a block of the Woodbine subway station and has excellent transit connections to most points within the City;

 

e.         the site is on Danforth Avenue with close proximity to retail, service and entertainment facilities and places of employment; and

 

f.          the Section 37 benefits that would be secured as a result of approval and construction of this development including contributions towards 3 parks in the vicinity of the proposed development.

 

This report reviews and recommends approval of the application to amend the Zoning By-law.

26a Supplementary Report - 66-76 Kippendavie Avenue - Private Tree Removal
Origin
(August 10, 2010) Report from the Director, Urban Forestry, Parks, Forestry and Recreation
Summary

The report requests that City Council authorize Urban Forestry to issue a permit for the destruction of a privately-owned tree located at 66-76 Kippendavie Avenue. The applicant has requested permission to remove the tree to accommodate the construction of a new, 4-storey, 65 unit, residential condominium building. 

 

The tree in question is a Norway spruce tree (Picea abies), measuring 56 cm in diameter.  The tree is currently in good and maintainable condition.  The tree is however, situated such that it is within the allowable building footprint and direct conflict with the proposed construction.  Therefore, the tree will have to be removed if this project is to proceed as planned.

Summary

This report recommends that City Council include the property at 450 Pape Avenue (William Harris House) on the City of Toronto Inventory of Heritage Properties and state its intention to designate the property under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

 

At its meeting of September 15, 2009, Toronto and East York Community Council referred a letter dated September 10, 2009 from Councillor Paula Fletcher to the Director, Policy and Research, City Planning Division, to consider a request to have the property at 450 Pape Avenue designated as a heritage property and to report to the Toronto Preservation Board and Toronto and East York Community Council on this matter.

This report recommends that City Council partially repeal and amend City of Toronto By-law 468-91, designating the properties at 50 St. Joseph Street and 1, 3 and 5 Elmsley Place under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act, to remove the portions of the site described as Parts 2, 3, 12 and 13 on Plan 66R-16274 from the legal description, and revise the Reasons for Designation in accordance with the 2005 changes to the Ontario Heritage Act.

 

As the result of amendments to the Official Plan and the Zoning By-law for the property at 50 St. Joseph Street, it is necessary to partially repeal By-law 468-91 to remove the designation from the parts of the site approved for redevelopment.  In accordance with the 2005 amendments to the Ontario Heritage Act, it is the practice of the City when updating designating by-laws to revise the Reasons for Designation to describe the property’s cultural heritage values and attributes.

Park Bench Dedicated to the Memory of Al Gosling
Committee Decision

The Toronto and East York Community Council referred the Member Motion from City Council to the General Manager, Parks, Forestry and Recreation, with a request that consideration be given to finding an appropriate commemoration in memory of Al Gosling, and that the Toronto Community Housing Corporation be consulted during this consideration.

Origin
(July 13, 2010) Member Motion from City Council
Summary

City Council on July 6, 7 and 8, 2010, referred Motion MM51.5 by Councillor Ford, seconded by Councillor Mammoliti, to the Toronto and East York Community Council.

 

Mr. Al Gosling was a tenant of the Toronto Community Housing Corporation, at 11 Arleta Avenue, for 21 years before his eviction and subsequent death from health complications on October 11, 2009.

 

The recent release of the LeSage Report has emphasized the importance of improving our efforts to protect the vulnerable of our society.

 

In particular, the report recognizes that the Toronto Community Housing Corporation has an obligation to tenants as their landlord, but also a larger obligation to serve the community as a whole through its mandate “to provide quality housing for low and moderate income households and to create community conditions that minimize risk and promote resiliency.”

 

A park bench dedicated to the memory of Mr. Al Gosling will serve to remind us all of the importance of protecting our most vulnerable residents and that we live up to the standards that we have set for ourselves.

Proposed Passenger Loading Zone and Conversion of Public Lane to One-Way Westbound Operation - 326, 358 King Street West
Committee Recommendations

The Toronto and East York Community Council recommends that:

 

1.         City Council prohibit standing at all times on the north side of King Street West from a point 29 metres west of John Street to a point 54 metres further west.

 

2.         City Council authorize the conversion of the public lane, first north of King Street West extending between John Street and Widmer Street to one-way westbound operation.

Origin
(July 13, 2010) Report from the Director, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District
Summary

Transportation Services has evaluated a request from Daniels HR Corporation on behalf of the owner of Bell Lightbox, 326, 358 King Street West, to provide loading opportunities for motor coaches and to convert the operation of the public lane, north of King Street West, extending between John Street and Widmer Street to one-way westbound operation.

 

The designation of an on-street loading zone on the north side of King Street West will provide loading/unloading opportunities for patrons and will not adversely impact traffic or pedestrian operations on this section of King Street West.  The conversion of the operation of the public lane to one-way westbound operation will facilitate a “staging area” for motor coaches during major events while they wait for space to become available on King Street West, within the motor coach loading area.

Hydrant Relocations - St. Clair Avenue West
Committee Decision

The Toronto and East York Community Council referred back to staff the report dated May 5, 2010, from the Director, Transportation Services, President, Toronto Parking Authority and the Director, District Operations, Toronto Water, respecting Hydrant Relocations – St. Clair Avenue West, for further consideration based on recent site visits that have occurred, and report to the January 2011 meeting of the Toronto and East York Community Council.

Origin
(May 5, 2010) Report from the Director, Transportation Services, President, Toronto Parking Authority, Director, District Operations, Toronto Water
Summary

The purpose of this staff report is to reply to the Toronto East York Community Council Decision Document No. TE32.124 dated March 9, 2010 and specifically to report on the feasibility of relocating the existing mid-block fire hydrants along St. Clair Avenue West between Bathurst Street and Winona Drive closer to the corners so as to increase available parking spaces.  

 

In the process of putting together this report, staff from Transportation Services, Technical Services, Toronto Water, and the Toronto Parking Authority all investigated the existing conditions along St. Clair Avenue West and provided comments on possible ways to increase available parking spaces.

 

The review conducted by Transportation Services concluded that the fire hydrants at Nos. 838, 722, 596, and 566 St. Clair Avenue West could potentially be relocated from their existing locations to adjacent “No Parking” zones.   

 

The Toronto Parking Authority indicated that the relocation of  the hydrants would increase the on-street inventory by one or two spaces per location. The relocation of the hydrants would not impact on the Authority’s cost or have any other operational impacts.

 

Field investigations conducted by Toronto Water staff revealed that this stretch of St. Clair Avenue West is serviced by eleven fire hydrants on the north side and two on the south side of the street, with horizontal spacing between hydrants presently ranging from 47.3 metres to 178.5 metres. Ontario Regulation 350/06 (Building Code Act, 1992) Section 3.2.5.7 (2) regulates the maximum spacing between fire hydrants to be 90 metres. The hydrants identified by Transportation Services for potential relocation at Nos. 566, 596, 628, 722, and 838 St. Clair Avenue West cannot be relocated to the side street intersections as the spacing would exceed the required minimum of Ontario Regulation 350/06.

 

Technical Services reported that the issue of relocating the existing mid-block fire hydrants to the corners was addressed in 2009, and that all the hydrants that could be moved were already moved during the TTC track reconstruction.  There was one additional hydrant that was to have been installed at Arlington Avenue during the TTC track reconstruction. Due to unresolved issues at the time of construction however, the installation of the hydrant was delayed until the spring of 2010. Once this hydrant is installed, the existing 178.5 metre spacing reported by Toronto Water will be reduced.

Origin
(July 28, 2010) Report from the Manager, Right of Way Management, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District
Summary

This staff report is about a matter which Community Council has delegated authority from City Council to make a final decision.

 

Transportation Services has assessed a request from the agent of the owners of 258 Warren Road to maintain various encroachments within the public right of way fronting 258 Warren Road. The encroachments include a 1.8 m high decorative wrought iron fence surmounted by a stone retaining wall, stone pillars and a glycol heating system within the driveway and private approach.

 

Although the decorative wrought iron fence surmounted by a stone retaining wall and stone pillars exceed the allowable height under the Municipal Code, they will not impact negatively on the public right of way. Similarly, the glycol system within the driveway and private approach will not impact negatively on the public right of way. Therefore, Transportation Services recommends approval of these encroachments.

 

The agent together with any other interested parties will be given the opportunity to make a deputation before Community Council.

Extension of Taxicab Stand - Richmond Street West, North Side, Between York Street and Bay Street
Committee Decision

The Toronto and East York Community Council deferred indefinitely the report dated January 18, 2010, from the Director, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District, respecting the Extension of Taxicab Stand - Richmond Street West, North Side, Between York Street and Bay Street.

Origin
(January 18, 2010) Report from the Director, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District
Summary

The Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel on January 1, 2010, closed the on-site taxicab facility in the Motor Court area of the hotel.  The Motor Court is located on the west side of the hotel, with access previously provided for taxis from York Street via a driveway between Queen Street West and Richmond Street West. As a result, taxis which typically would have waited on-site for their fares will need to be relocated off the hotel property.

 

Transportation Services is seeking authority to extend the easterly limit of the existing 2-vehicle taxicab stand, located on the north side of Richmond Street West east of York Street, to provide three additional taxicab spaces.  In order to provide 3 additional taxicab spaces, the bus pickup/drop off zone will need to be reduced by 16.5 metres.  This change will not impact significantly on bus loading/unloading operations.

Origin
(July 13, 2010) Letter from Councillor Michael Walker, Ward 22, St. Paul's
Summary

On May 25, 2010, Toronto and East York Community Council heard item TE34.33 - Request for a Fence Exemption at 301 Davisville Avenue. Community Council did not grant the exemption.

 

The applicants have subsequently come to visit my office to discuss this issue; they were unfamiliar with the process and had not sought assistance from me until after the item was dealt with at Community Council.  The exemption request is for a section of fence 6.56 metres long that is at a height of 2.64 metres (0.64 metres over the allowable limit) which separates the applicant’s rear-yard and provides additional privacy from a neighbouring property.  I would like the opportunity to work with all the parties to see if we can arrive at a solution.

 

I am seeking your support and I will be making a motion at the August 17, 2010, Toronto and East York Community Council meeting to reopen this item, and bring it back to the first meeting of the new term.  In the interim, I have also requested that enforcement of the previous decision be held back until this item can be reheard.

1.         Heavy trucks be prohibited on Keystone Avenue, between Cedarvale Avenue and Morton Road.

Origin
(August 17, 2010) Member Motion from Councillor Sandra Bussin, Ward 32, Beaches-East York
Summary

This motion is about a matter for which the Community Council has delegated authority from City Council to make a final decision.

 

The residents of Keystone Avenue have requested that heavy trucks be prohibited due to safety concerns.  Specifically, they are concerned with Toronto Hydro and Canada Post vehicles using Keystone Avenue to access the traffic control signals at the intersection of Patricia Drive and Danforth Avenue.  The residents state that many school children cross at this intersection and these conflicts are unsafe.  The trucks have direct access to Danforth Avenue via Morton Road which is unsignalized at Danforth Avenue. 

 

It should be noted that all costs associated with the implementation of the heavy truck prohibition will be included within the Transportation Services Division’s 2010 Operating Budget estimates.

2.         Requested Legal Services to prepare and execute the Encroachment Agreement.

Origin
(August 11, 2010) Member Motion from Councillor Pam McConnell, Ward 28, Toronto Centre-Rosedale
Summary

The Cabbagetown Business Improvement Area (BIA), as part of a cost-share project with the City's BIA Office, has proposed the installation of two pedestrian-scale lights within the public boulevard on the north side of Carlton Street, just east of Parliament Street (adjacent to the properties municipally known as 493 Parliament Street and 252 Carleton Street).   The proposed lamps to be placed on the free-standing, decorative poles will match the existing pedestrian scale, clamp-on lamps which exist throughout the BIA.

 

Existing by-law regulations require the Transportation Services Division to obtain the approval of Community Council for such an installation.  Due to the upcoming election, the earliest Community Council meeting available for a Transportation Services report will be in 2011.   The BIA is hopeful of installing the pedestrian lights by the end of 2010.  Cost-share funding for the project is available within the 2010 capital budget of the Economic Development and Culture Division. If approved by the Toronto and East York Community Council, the project will require a permit from the Transportation Services Division.

Queen's Park North - Usage Policy
Committee Decision

The Toronto and East York Community Council requested the General Manager of Parks, Forestry and Recreation to consult with the area Parks Manager, the Director of Urban Forestry, local residents and special event organizers on a usage policy for Queen's Park North and to report back to the Toronto and East York Community Council with recommendations.

Origin
(August 12, 2010) Letter from Councillor Kyle Rae, Ward 27, Toronto Centre-Rosedale
Summary

Queen's Park North has become a tremendously popular site for organizations looking to host outdoor special events. This year alone, Queen's Park North will host 30 events from May through October. While these events create a sense of vibrancy in the neighbourhood, they have led to considerable strain on the physical environment of the park, causing stress to the tree canopy, compaction of soil, and significant damage to the turf, pathways and other park amenities. Much of this damage is a result of event organizers not adhering to permit conditions, such as ensuring that vehicles are kept out of the park. Another problematic issue for area residents is sound amplification from certain events. My office regularly hears from Parks staff and local residents regarding these issues, and they believe further programming in the park will lead to greater deterioration of park assets and cause irreversible damage to the tree canopy. As a result, a usage policy, specific to Queen's Park North, should be developed by the General Manager of Parks, Forestry and Recreation.

Summary

On May 26, 2010, the Committee of Adjustment refused a proposal to develop an 11-storey condominium development at 508-516 Wellington Street West. The applicant has appealed this decision to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB).

 

As the Ward Councillor representing the area where this proposal is located, I am seeking Council's support to request that the City Solicitor attend the OMB hearing in support of the application and/or negotiate a settlement based on the parameters identified.

 

The proposal is for an 11-storey residential condominium on Wellington Street West, and is in line with several other developments on the street.

 

At the time of the Committee of Adjustment hearing, I requested a deferral of the application to provide more time to receive residents’ feedback about the proposal, which had been presented at a community meeting the previous week. The Committee heard the application and it was refused. The Wellington Place Residents Association has since met further with the applicant and some changes have been made to respond to their feedback.

 

The residents association is in support of the application with the conditions outlined below. The applicant has agreed in writing to seek approval at the OMB in accordance with recommendations below.

Summary

The City’s Culture Division is planning to build a Visitor Centre at the Fort York National Historic Site. The need for a Visitor Centre has been recognized in numerous planning studies prepared for the Fort over the past 20 years and is part of the City’s Capital Budget. The Visitor Centre presents a unique opportunity to reposition the historic site within its historic and contemporary context. The Visitor Centre will be one of the legacy projects for the upcoming Bicentennial of the War of 1812 commemoration (overseen by a Steering Committee co-chaired by myself).

 

The Visitor Centre will provide the venue through which the Fort’s content rich interpretive programs can be delivered more effectively. The Visitor Centre will be a multi-purpose building that will include exhibit spaces, multi-purpose rooms and meeting spaces, food service, a retail store and washrooms. The facility will also serve the local community with programming, curriculum-based school programming, and the multi-purpose rooms and meeting spaces can be used by the general public. At this time, exact programming has not been determined.

 

The Visitor Centre design has been completed and the project cost has been determined at $23,013,000 gross and $3,313,000 net. Confirmed funding sources include the City’s Capital Budget, contributions from the Federal Government and approximately $1.7 million in Section 37 contributions for Fort York Improvements. The Fort York Foundation has also set a fundraising goal of $6 million. The Provincial Government has been requested to provide a contribution, however, no funding from the Province has been confirmed and there is a potential budget shortfall.

 

The Fort York Secondary Plan contemplates a new Visitor Centre at the Fort and includes a provision that the Visitor Centre may also serve as a multi-use community facility. The Section 37 agreements for Blocks 1/2A, 3A, 3B, 5 and 7 in the Fort York Neighbourhood secured contributions of approximately $2 million towards a community centre to serve the Fort York Neighbourhood.  Blocks 2, 3, 4, 4A, 6 and 6A are subject to Development Levy Agreements where development levies are collected and spent like development charges. Accordingly, a portion of the levies is to be spent on community services.

 

The Visitor Centre will serve as a multi-use facility and be a centre point for the local community. In order to address any potential budget shortfall, on the understanding that the Visitor Centre will include community centre uses/programming and spaces available for the community, I recommend that available Section 37 contributions collected for a Community Centre in the Fort York Neighbourhood be directed to help fund the Visitor Centre. I also recommend that staff take the necessary steps to facilitate the specific allocation of a portion of the development levies collected in the Fort York Neighbourhood toward the Visitor Centre.

Summary

In 2015 Toronto will host the Pan and Parapan Am Games. The games will bring 10,000 athletes from 42 countries and over 250,000 visitors to the city. In addition to fast tracking the West Don Lands revitalization, the games will showcase the city’s sporting venues, amenities, and the routes between them.

 

Front Street will be a primary conduit for visitors who will be accessing venues and amenities during the games. A safe and beautiful streetscape is important to ensuring the success of the games and maximizing their economic impact.  A Promenade Plan will assist in creating an inventory of improvements to the public realm and pedestrian connections during the games and after.

Pedestrian Access in the East Bayfront
Committee Decision

The Toronto and East York Community Council referred the letter dated August 16, 2010, from Councillor McConnell respecting Pedestrian Access in the East Bayfront to the General Manager, Transportation Services, with a request that reports be submitted:

 

1.         to the next meeting of Toronto and East York Community Council on revoking commercial boulevard parking permits in East Bayfront, to be replaced by unobstructed sidewalks so as to promote pedestrian access to Sherbourne Common, Sugar Beach, Corus Quay and the Waterfront Promenade; and

 

2.         on establishing permitted on-street parking on both sides of Bonnycastle Street, Small Street and Richardson Street by the first quarter of 2011.

Origin
(August 16, 2010) Letter from Councillor Pam McConnell, Ward 28, Toronto Centre-Rosedale
Summary

Waterfront revitalization is progressing with the opening of Corus Quay and the construction of the new George Brown College campus. Sugar Beach park has just officially opened at the foot of Lower Jarvis Street. In September 2010 a new park named Sherbourne Common will open in the East Bayfront. The park is the latest piece of the revitalization of our waterfront being led by Waterfront Toronto. Located just east of Lower Sherbourne Street, the 1.5 hectare park spans more than two city blocks, from Lake Ontario in the south to Lake Shore Boulevard in the north, on both sides of Queens Quay. Sherbourne Common will become a well-used, year-round destination for city residents and visitors.

 

One of the main goals of waterfront revitalization is to provide better access to the water’s edge from existing neighbourhoods in the downtown. New Pedestrian Promenades are being implemented at York, Bay, Yonge, Lower Jarvis and Lower Sherbourne Streets to ensure safe and beautiful routes to and from the waterfront.

 

Presently, many of the streets between Lake Shore Boulevard. and Queens Quay between Lower Jarvis and Parliament Streets are covered with commercial boulevard parking and do not provide proper sidewalks. These streetscapes impede access to the new park and the new buildings on the waterfront.

City Initiated Rezoning of the First Parliament Site
Committee Recommendations

The Toronto and East York Community Council recommends that:

 

1.         City Council authorize Community Planning staff to undertake a City initiated rezoning of the First Parliament site (lands bounded by Front Street East, Parliament Street, Berkeley Street and Parliament Square Park) with the intent to change the zoning from Reinvestment Area (RA) to Parks (G); that this rezoning permit a portion of the site to be used for public facilities that could include parkland, a heritage interpretive centre, a public library, underground parking, concession and café; and that a report on this rezoning be submitted to the Toronto and East York Community Council by the second quarter of 2011.

(August 16, 2010) Letter from Councillor Pam McConnell, Ward 28, Toronto Centre-Rosedale
Summary

The properties located at 265 Front Street, 271 Front Street and 25 Berkeley Street are the sites where the First Parliament Buildings for the Province of Ontario, then Upper Canada, were constructed in 1796. The location of these buildings, which were burned by the Americans during the War of 1812, reconstructed in 1819 and then accidentally burned in 1824, is of provincial and national significance. An archaeological investigation conducted in 2000 found remains of these buildings during excavations. 

 

It is intended to recognize the First Parliament site in a way that properly respects its significance in the history of Canada and the Province. The City is currently preparing for commemoration of the bicentennial of the War of 1812. The First Parliament Site, as an integral component of that history, should be included in those events. A 2002 study commissioned by the City and Province in consultation with community stakeholders proposed options for the commemoration of the site that included interpretation facilities, open green space, public amenities, or a combination of these.

 

Presently, the First Parliament site falls within a Reinvestment (RA) zoning area. A more appropriate zoning designation as Parks (G) will provide a be
