Origin

(May 9, 2022) Report from the Chief Building Official and Executive Director, Toronto Building

Summary

Toronto's Sign By-law is a harmonized, City-wide set of regulations governing signs which was adopted in 2010. The Sign By-law contains a process for any member of the public to apply to City Council to amend the Sign By-law in order to implement significant changes to the sign regulations for a specific property or area. Applications are commonly made requesting amendments to the Sign By-law to allow signs that are prohibited, to remove permissions for signs in an area, or to modify the administrative requirements of the Sign By-law. The Chief Building Official ("CBO") brings applications to amend the Sign By-law together on an annual basis for City Council consideration, so that City Council can more easily assess the overall and cumulative impact of these applications on the city's built environment, and the Sign By-law itself.

 

This report responds to an application for multiple amendments to the Sign By-law made by Allvision Canada (the "Applicant") on behalf of Metrolinx, concerning specific portions of railway corridors owned or managed by Metrolinx, specifically the "Bala Subdivision", the "Oakville Subdivision", and the "Kingston Subdivision".  

 

The Applicant proposes that City Council amend the Sign By-law in multiple ways:

 

- To exempt a specific portion of the Bala Subdivision (municipally known as 3300 Leslie Street) directly adjacent to Highway 401, from an area-specific restriction that prohibits any third party signs from being erected in this location;

 

- To establish regulations for a sign with two rectangular sign faces, each with a vertical dimension of 4.27 metres and horizontal dimension of 14.63 metres, sign face area of approximately 62.47 square metres each (three times larger than permitted by the Sign By-law); a height of 22.86 metres (more than twice as high as permitted in the Sign By-law); for the two sign faces to be built in a "v-shaped" configuration, which is typically prohibited by the Sign By-law; built within 60 metres of a Commercial Residential ("CR") Sign District; and, located within 250 metres and facing properties within CR, Institutional ("I"), Open Space ("OS") and Residential ("R") Sign Districts, which is also prohibited by the Sign By-law. ("The Proposed Sign"); and,

 

- To establish five new area specific prohibitions on the display of third party signs within a 100 metre radius of specific portions of rail corridors known as the "Bala Subdivision", the "Oakville Subdivision", and the "Kingston Subdivision".  

 

The proposed amendment would also modify permitting regulations in the Sign By-law so that a permit for the Proposed Sign would be contingent on the removal of five existing signs that are located between 0.6 and 18.5 km away from the Proposed Sign, within the Bala Subdivision, the Oakville Subdivision and the Kingston Subdivision. In conjunction with these removals, the proposed amendment would introduce five new area specific restrictions that are not only unrelated to the Proposed Sign, but are also largely redundant and will result in unnecessary restrictions in the Sign By-law.

 

Toronto Building, in consultation with City Planning and Transportation Services, conducted a thorough review of the application, and has concluded that the Applicant's rationale is not consistent with the objectives of the Sign By-law. For the reasons set out in this report, the Chief Building Official does not support amending the Sign By-law for these locations throughout the city.

16a - Supplementary Report - Area-Specific Amendments to the Sign By-law: Six locations within the Bala Subdivision, the Oakville Subdivision and the Kingston Subdivision

Origin
(May 25, 2022) Report from the Chief Building Official and Executive Director, Toronto Building
Summary

This report is a supplement to the May 9, 2022, report from the Chief Building Official and Executive Director, Toronto Building, ("CBO") with respect to area-specific amendments to the Sign Bylaw for six locations within the Bala Subdivision, the Oakville Subdivision and the Kingston Subdivision. The application for these area specific amendments was made by Allvision Canada (the "Applicant") concerning specific portions of railway corridors owned or managed by Metrolinx, specifically the "Bala Subdivision", the "Oakville Subdivision", and the "Kingston Subdivision"

 

The proposed amendment was described in the Chief Building Official and Executive Director, Toronto Building report dated May 9, 2022, ("the Original Report") which described a proposal for one third party electronic sign; located within the Bala Subdivision directly adjacent to Highway 401 (described in the Original Report as "the Proposed Sign"). As part of the application, a request was made to modify the permitting regulations in the Sign By-law so that a permit for the Proposed Sign would be contingent on the removal of five existing signs, and revocation of all associated permits. The proposed amendment also sought to establish five area-specific prohibitions located between 0.6 and 18.5 km away from the Proposed Sign, within the Bala Subdivision, the Oakville Subdivision and the Kingston Subdivision.

 

The proposed amendment was contingent on the five existing signs being erected as of the date of scheduled Planning and Housing Committee meeting. A May 24, 2022, investigation by staff has identified that one of these five signs, located east of Sherbourne Street and north of Lakeshore Boulevard, which was proposed to be removed as part of the application described in the Original Report, has been removed prior to Council consideration of this item.

 

This report is to provide the details around the sign that has been removed, as well as to provide an amended version of the proposed amendment to the Sign Bylaw in Appendix 1 to this report. For the reasons set out in this report and in the Original Report, the Chief Building Official and Executive Director, Toronto Building does not support amending the Sign By-law for these locations throughout the city.
