Origin

(July 24, 2014) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Etobicoke York District

Summary

This report presents the findings of the first phase of the Humbertown Secondary Plan Study (Study).  Phase 1 of the Study included the review of the existing and planned context for the Study Area as well as the identification and evaluation of opportunities and constraints relative to existing Official Plan policy, in order to develop specific recommendations regarding the future direction and scope of work for Phase 2 of the Study.

 

The final report prepared by IBI Group, the planning consultant hired to conduct Phase 1 of the Study, summarizes the process undertaken by the consultant and the findings of the background review. The report concludes that a Secondary Plan should not be pursued for the Study Area and the appropriate method to enhance the existing policy framework is to advance to a second phase of the Study for the purpose of creating a Site and Area Specific Policy (SASP).  The primary reason for this recommended approach is to provide greater clarity on how the Official Plan is to be interpreted for the Apartment Neighbourhoods designated lands within the Study Area.

 

Planning staff have provided two recommendations for the consideration of City Council and are recommending that City Council adopt Recommendation A of this report.
