Origin

(March 3, 2022) Report from the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning

Summary

This report recommends that City Council affirm its decision of July 14, 15 and 16, 2021 (Item DM35.1) stating its intention to designate the properties at 10 and 10A Dawes Road under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act. The City has received an objection to the Notice of Intention to Designate from an interested party within the statutory timeline.

 

The properties at 10 and 10A Dawes Road are located on the west side of Dawes Road at the southern terminus of the road, south of Danforth Avenue and north of the railway corridor.

 

Staff have reviewed the objections raised by the interested party and are of the opinion that these objections have no bearing on the cultural heritage value of the properties.  The properties meet Ontario Regulation 9/06, the criteria prescribed for municipal designation under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act under all three categories of design and physical, historical and associative, and contextual values.

 

As the properties have cultural heritage value or interest and meet the prescribed criteria pursuant to Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act, staff are of the opinion that these properties should be designated. Designation enables City Council to review proposed alterations for the property, enforce heritage property standards and maintenance, and refuse demolition.

 

In June 2019, the More Homes, More Choice Act, 2019 (Bill 108) received Royal Assent. Schedule 11 of this Act included amendments to the Ontario Heritage Act which included amendments to the listing and designation processes. The Bill 108 Amendments to the Ontario Heritage Act came into force on July 1, 2021.

 

City Council has until April 24, 2022, 90 days from the date of the end of the objection period, to make a decision on this objection as per the timeline under the Ontario Heritage Act.
