Decision Advice and Other Information

The Executive Committee:

 

1.  Requested the Interim Chief Financial Officer, in consultation with the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning, to report directly to City Council on April 24, 2018 to eliminate the development charges for secondary dwelling units as outlined the Proposed Development Charges By-law in Appendix 1 to the report (April 3, 2018) from the Interim Chief Financial Officer.

 

2. Held a statutory public meeting on January 24, 2018 and notice was given in accordance with the Development Charges Act, 1997.

Origin

(April 3, 2018) Report from the Interim Chief Financial Officer

Summary

At the statutory public meeting held on January 24, 2018, Executive Committee referred the input received at the public meeting to the Interim Chief Financial Officer and directed staff to conduct additional stakeholder consultations and report on certain other matters to the April 17, 2018 meeting of Executive Committee. This report provides the results of the additional consultation and recommends the adoption of a revised development charges by-law and Background Study.

 

Technical revisions to the Development Charges Background Study, arising primarily through further discussions with consultants retained on behalf of the Building Industry and Land Development (BILD) Association and internal review by the City's own consultants, have resulted in a 9 percent reduction to the proposed calculated residential and non-residential development charges rates presented in January 2018. 

 

This report recommends adoption of a number of important policies incorporated in the recommended by-law. These include:

 

i)  A schedule of updated charges that will, when fully implemented, almost double the City's development charges revenue to help offset the cost of growth.

 

ii)  New support for non-luxury purpose-built rental housing to mitigate the impact of the rate increases.

 

iii)  New support for scattered rental in newly constructed laneway, garden and other second suites, reducing the applicable charge in some cases by almost $50,000 per unit by applying the apartment rate to all land development meeting the definition.

 

iv)  Timing of payment of development charges to occur upon issuance of first building permit once rate increases are fully phased-in.

 

v)  Continuation of development charges exemptions for lands owned by and used for college and university purposes.

 

vi)  Continuation of the industrial and office exemptions (with the exception of the ground floor) pending further study.

 

Other recommendations outside the by-law are expected to address concerns regarding the rate impact on home ownership assistance programs and on certain areas of the City.

 

The proposed by-law attempts to strike an appropriate balance between revenue optimization, City Council long term planning and economic development objectives, and due consideration of the potential impact on the land development and construction industry.

 

Development charges are calculated on a cost recovery basis and represent the maximum charges that can be imposed under provincial legislation. This report recommends development charges that are notable increases over current levels and are primarily the result of updated capital programs.  Upon full phase-in, these increases are expected to generate approximately $240 million per year in additional development charge revenues, helping to support services that are required to accommodate growth.

 

Almost 40 percent of the residential charge is related to funding transit.  The charge and related revenue for investments in affordable rental housing will increase by 270 percent compared to the 2013 by-law.  While the City's rates are increasing, Toronto's rates remain competitive with the rates in growing municipalities in the surrounding region, reflecting the need for capital investment to provide services as a result of growth.

 

On behalf of the land development industry, Building Industry and Land Development Association has indicated that it will not appeal the by-law nor support actions of its independent members to appeal if Council adopts the recommended rates, phase-in strategy and the balance of the proposed by-law largely as presented in January.
