1.         City Council adopt the confidential instructions to staff in Attachment 2 of the report (February 5, 2014) from the City Solicitor and Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District with respect to the Central Waterfront Secondary Plan, and, if adopted, the Recommendations in Attachment 2 and Map 2 be released if settlement is achieved with the balance of Attachment 2 to remain confidential.

Origin

(February 5, 2014) Report from the City Solicitor and Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District

Summary

The City of Toronto passed the Central Waterfront Secondary Plan (CWSP) in April 2003 and subsequently zoning by-laws for East Bayfront (By-law No. 1049-2006) and North Keating (By-law No. 1174-2010).  Owners of six of the private development sites in the two precincts have filed appeals to the Central Waterfront Secondary Plan and the area specific By-laws.  After several years of discussions and several pre-hearing conferences, the Ontario Municipal Board has set aside six weeks for hearings on these appeals starting on May 12, 2014 with additional time scheduled from mid October 2014.  City and Waterfront Toronto representatives continue ongoing negotiations with the appellants in an effort to find mutually acceptable solutions for both the appellants and the City.

 

This report outlines the nature of the first round of discussions and seeks City Council authority to continue negotiations of the appeals based on the conclusions and recommendations set out in the Confidential Attachment.

 

This negotiation process has been an exceptionally labour intensive exercise, but has resulted in some potential conclusions to the process.  This report outlines the overall issues and requests in a confidential attachment direction from Council to continue discussions regarding the appeals to the Ontario Municipal Board.  These discussions commenced in September 2013 and were reported on in an “Information Report” in November 2013.

This current report addresses the first round of discussions that have concluded; other discussions continue with the remaining appellants.  Staff intends to report on those additional discussions in June of 2014.
