City Council Decision

City Council on June 6, 7 and 8, 2012, adopted the following:

 

1.         City Council amend the 2012 Parks, Forestry and Recreation Capital Budget to increase the capital project known as "Play Equipment Program FY2012," account CPR 119-42-03, to accept donations raised by the City and the Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation in the amount of $0.150 million to a total of $1.550 million.  Funds are to be cash-flowed in 2012 and to be used for playground enhancements at the Jamie Bell Adventure Playground in High Park. Should any donated funds remain at the conclusion of the work, these funds will continue to be held by the Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation for future use solely at the Jamie Bell Adventure Playground in High Park.

(the Holmes Group), and Lowe's, valued at over $60,000.00 CDN, for the portions of the design and construction of the new castle playground feature and landscape enhancements not funded through the cash donations received at the Jamie Bell Adventure Playground in High Park.

 

3.         City Council authorize the General Manager of Parks, Forestry and Recreation to enter into an agreement with Make it Right, The Series, Inc. and Make it Right Construction Inc. to spend the donated funds for the development of the Jamie Bell Adventure Playground project on terms and conditions satisfactory to the General Manager of Parks, Forestry and Recreation, and in a form and content satisfactory to the City Solicitor.
