Consideration Type:
ACTION
Schedule Type:

Origin

(October 20, 2016) Letter from Councillor Gary Crawford

Recommendations

Councillor Crawford recommends that Scarborough Community Council:

 

1.  Re-open Item SC17.3 – Request for a Fence Exemption - Front Yard - 29 MacDuff Crescent, as it relates to the height of the hedge.

 

2.  Amend the Decision by deleting "2 metres" and inserting instead "2.5 metres", to read as follows:

 

"Granted the application for a fence exemption permit at 29 MacDuff Crescent, thereby allowing the fence (hedge) to remain at a height not to exceed 2.5 metres; directed and requires that the fence (hedge) be maintained in good repair; directed and requires that at any such time the fence (hedge) is removed a replacement of the fence is required and that such installation will comply with Municipal Code Chapter 447, or its successor by-law."

Summary

On October 13th, 2016 Scarborough Community Council decided to issue a fence exemption for the hedge at 29 MacDuff Crescent.  Please see the decision at the following link.

http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2016.SC17.3

 

 As stated in the decision, the hedge is not to exceed two metres in height. At the Scarborough Community Council meeting on November 15th, 2016, I will request to reopen this item with respect to the height. The arborist's report states that the minimum hedge height should be not less than at 8 feet, which is better reflected at 2.5 metres.

Summary

This report requests that City Council deny the application for a permit to remove one (1) privately-owned tree located at 16 Shropshire Drive.

Origin

(September 21, 2016) Report from the Director, Transportation Services, Scarborough District

Recommendations

The Director, Transportation Services, Scarborough District recommends that:

 

1.   Scarborough Community Council amend the existing parking prohibition in effect at all times on the north and east side of Prudential Drive, between a point 202 metres west of Midland Avenue and a point 66 metres further west and north, to be in effect between a point 150 metres west of Midland Avenue and a point 118 metres further west and north.

Summary

This staff report is about a matter for which the Community Council has delegated authority from City Council to make a final decision.

 

This report recommends that the existing No Parking zone along the north side of Prudential Drive be extended eastward to include the area in between the accesses to 100 Prudential Drive in order to mitigate the safety impact of vehicles being parked in this area. Currently the three-hour default parking regulation applies between the two accesses.

Financial Impact

The financial cost of installing the parking regulation signage is approximately $250.00. Funding for these signs is available in the Transportation Services 2016 Operating Budget, within Cost Centre TP0397.

(May 26, 2016) Report from the Director, Transportation Services, Scarborough District

Recommendations

Transportation Services recommends that:

 

1.  This report be received for information.

Summary

This report responds to a request by Scarborough Community Council, at its meeting on April 5, 2016, for a report from the Director, Transportation Services, Scarborough District on a proposal to enact an amendment to the Municipal Code that would permit the use of the "driveway apron" (the section between the curb and sidewalk) for parking purposes on Painted Post Drive in Ward 38. The Municipal Code currently prohibits the use of this area for parking purposes across the City, with the exception of one street in Ward 8 (Shoreham Drive).

 

The exemption to the Municipal Code for Shoreham Drive was enacted by City Council in April 2015.  Therefore, the full implications of this "apron parking" on Shoreham Drive are not yet known due, in part, to the relatively moderate winter the city experienced last season.  Nevertheless, based on an assessment of the potential impacts of parked vehicles on traffic operations, pedestrian activity, and winter maintenance, and the potential safety implications, staff have concerns with the proposed exemption.  The implications of this proposal and the basis of these concerns are presented in this report for information.

Financial Impact

There are no financial impacts resulting from the receipt of this report.

(October 26, 2016) Report from the Director, Transportation Services, Scarborough District

Recommendations

The Director, Transportation Services, Scarborough District recommends that:

 

1.   City Council not authorize the installation of traffic control signals or a pedestrian crossover on Birchmount Road in the area of 1792 Birchmount Road.

Summary

This report recommends that neither traffic control signals nor a pedestrian crossover be approved on Birchmount Road, north of Ellesmere Road, in the area of 1792 Birchmount Road. The assessment concludes that based on current peak vehicular and pedestrian volumes and delays and conflicts at this location, neither traffic control signals nor a pedestrian crossover is warranted at this time.

Financial Impact

There is no financial impact associated with this report. However, should City Council authorize the installation of a pedestrian crossover or traffic control signals at this location, the cost would be approximately $95,000.00 and $180,000.00 respectively. Funding for either of these alternatives is not included in the Transportation Services 2016 Capital Budget.

Recommendations

Councillor Ainslie recommends that:

 

1.  Scarborough Community Council request the Director, Engineering Support Services and Construction Services and the Technical Services Division begin the process to review options for the renaming of Meadowvale Road between Highway 401 and Old Finch Avenue including those of a "honourary" nature.

 

2.  Staff to report back to the February 2017 meeting.

Summary

The Toronto Zoo is the largest zoo in Canada attracting thousands of visitors annually becoming a landmark location in our City.

 

Home to over 5,000 animals it is situated in a beautiful natural habitat in one of Canada's largest urban parks.  Opening its doors on August 15, 1974 the Toronto Zoo has been able to adapt throughout the years developing a vision to "educate visitors on current conservation issues and help preserve the incredible biodiversity on the planet", through their work with endangered species, plans for a wildlife health centre and through their Research & Veterinary Programs.

 

I believe it would be appropriate to introduce a honourary street name for the section of Meadowvale Road between Highway 401 and Old Finch Avenue to recognize the only public entrance to the Toronto Zoo.

a.   Prior to issuance of an above-grade building permit, the Owner shall make a cash contribution to the City in the amount of sixty-five thousand dollars ($65,000 CDN) to be applied toward any one or more of improvements to the Warden Hilltop Community Centre, local parks or the library in the Warden Woods Community, at the discretion of the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning in consultation with the Ward Councillor and local community, such amount to be indexed upwardly in accordance with the Statistics Canada Non-Residential Building Construction Price Index for Toronto, calculated from the date of registration of the Section 37 Agreement to the date of payment.

 

6.   In accordance with the delegated approval under by-law 229-2000, as amended, City Council be advised that the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning intends to approve the draft plan of subdivision as generally illustrated on Attachment 10 to report dated October 26, 2016 from the Acting Director, Community Planning, Scarborough District, subject to:

Summary

These applications propose a 26-unit residential development comprised of three-storey townhouses on a former rail spur at 95 Pidgeon Street (formerly 0 Birchmount Road).  The subdivision application proposes to establish several blocks for the proposed townhouses and part of an extension to Pidgeon Street.

 

This proposal represents the residential infill and redevelopment of an unused rail spur for townhouses.  It continues the pattern of development that will occur at 743 Warden Avenue, immediately west and connected to the subject lands.

 

The proposal complies with the Official Plan, conforms to the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe and is consistent with the Provincial Policy Statement.  The proposed rezoning and draft plan of subdivision are considered appropriate for the use and development of the lands.

 

This report reviews and recommends approval of the application to amend the Zoning By-laws and also advises that the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning, intends to approve the Draft Plan of Subdivision subject to the conditions as generally listed in Attachment 10.

Recommendations

Councillor Lee recommends that Scarborough Community Council:

 

1.  Request the Director of Transportation, Scarborough District, to report on the feasibility of changing the speed limit on Agincourt Drive from 50 km/h to 40 km/h.

Summary

Agincourt Drive is a north-south residential road directly east of the Agincourt GO Station along the Agincourt/Stouffville Rail Corridor. Residents have been concerned about an intensification of traffic in the neighbourhood and an increase of speed of local and through traffic. Some sections of Agincourt Drive lacks sidewalk. Agincourt Drive abuts a pedestrian walkway that leads to the Agincourt Go platform as well as a crossover connecting the east and west sections of the historic Agincourt Village Community that is used not only by GO riders but children and their families walking to and from several local schools. As a result there is considerable pedestrian traffic at various times of the day.

 

We ask that a feasibility study be completed with a presentation to Scarborough Community Council for the Spring of 2017.
