The following confidential recommendations contained in Confidential Attachment 1 to the report (July 4, 2016) from the Interim City Solicitor were adopted by City Council and are now public:

 

1.  City Council authorize the City Solicitor to advise the Ontario Municipal Board that Council supports the applicant's proposal to revise the parking standards for the development proposal such that there shall be a total of 195 parking spaces, with 141 spaces for residential units, 7 spaces for rental units, 2 spaces for short term parking, 3 spaces for auto share parking, 38 spaces for visitor parking and 4 spaces for commercial parking.

 

2.  City Council's support of the adjusted parking standards is conditional upon the applicant providing an additional indexed financial contribution in the amount of $100,000 as a community benefit for public realm improvements along Helendale Avenue and with indexed financial contributions for parking demand management measures as set out below:

 

a.  $50,000 for the installation of one bike share station in the area of the development proposal;

 

b.  $12,000 for the installation of two or more bike repair station(s) in the area, with at least one such station located on-site; and

 

c.  $3,000 for additional on-street bicycle parking rings along Yonge Street.

 

3.  City Council direct that all Section 37 community benefits provided in connection with this application shall be allocated by the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning, in consultation with the Ward Councillor. For clarification, the streetscape improvements abutting the site to be provided in accordance with the Midtown in Focus, Parks, Open Space and Streetscape Master Plan Study as referenced in the Council resolution CC12.8 dated February 3 and 4, 2016 form part of the community benefits to be funded as appropriate from the applicant's community benefits financial contribution. In the event that the City requests and the applicant agrees to install some or all of the community benefits required for the development proposal, the applicant shall, at the time of the first above-grade building permit issuance, file a letter of credit with the City to secure such improvements and the letter of credit shall be released by the City in accordance with its practices in that regard.
