Origin

(May 16, 2017) Report from the Chief Building Official and Executive Director, Toronto Building

Summary

The purpose of this report is to provide recommendations to City Council on six applications received by Toronto Building in 2016, to amend Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 694 (Sign By-law).  City Council approval is required as the applicants are requesting By-law amendments that would allow for a prohibited sign type, extended sign permit expiry date, or for a sign that is not permitted in the sign district where it is proposed. The Sign Variance Committee does not have the authority to grant these types of variances. Two of the applications are resubmissions of applications previously refused by City Council.

 

The report considers the overall impact of approving the six applications on the goals of the Sign By-law and the city as a whole. Five of the six applications include electronic signs with static copy which are generally in areas where these signs are not permitted.  Static copy refers to sign copy that is fixed and does not move. The report further describes the Chief Building Official's review of each application, identifying how each application conflicts with the existing Sign By-law. 

 

The Chief Building Official and Executive Director, Toronto Building recommends that City Council refuse all of the amendment applications contained in this report, as the signs resulting from the proposed amendments would be inconsistent with the regulations, goal and objectives of the Sign By-law. There are no distinguishing characteristics of any of the applications which would support a recommendation to change the existing Sign By-law requirements to allow these particular signs.
