Community Council Recommendations

North York Community Council recommends that:

 

1. City Council deny the request for a permit to remove one (1) privately owned tree located at 11 Brooke Avenue.

Origin

(April 19, 2016) Report from the Director, Urban Forestry, Parks, Forestry and Recreation

Summary

This report requests that City Council deny the application for a permit to remove one (1) privately-owned tree located at 11 Brooke Avenue. The application indicates the reasons for removal are due to concerns over injury that was sustained due to falling walnuts, staining of the patio deck and outdoor furniture, the resulting restricted use of the patio deck and backyard, and heaving of stones around the base of the tree.

 

The subject tree is a black walnut (Juglans nigra) tree measuring 61 cm in diameter. Urban Forestry does not support removal of the tree as it is healthy and maintainable.

Community Council Decision

North York Community Council:

 

1. Approved the name "de Havilland 'Mossie' Park" for the park at 111 Anthony Road.

Origin

(April 22, 2016) Report from the General Manager, Parks, Forestry and Recreation

Summary

In June 2012, City Council authorized an exchange of lands to create a park at 111 Anthony Road and capital improvements to the property were completed in 2015. The park has been informally called "Anthony Road Park" and "Anthony Road School Park" during this time, however a name for the park has not been established.

 

Property naming and renaming are a matter for which a Community Council has delegated authority from City Council to make a final decision.

 

The Parks, Forestry and Recreation Division initiated a naming process outlined in the Council-approved City of Toronto Property Naming Policy in consultation with the local Councillor, including the creation of a list of potential names and community consultation on the options.

 

Based on the outcome of this process, Parks, Forestry and Recreation is recommending that the park located at 111 Anthony Road be named to "de Havilland "Mossie" Park".

Summary

This staff report is about a matter for which Community Council has delegated authority to make a final decision, provided that it is not amended so that it varies with City policy or by-laws.

 

Transportation Services has reviewed the intersections of Corona Street/Cork Avenue, Corona Street/Claver Avenue, Bolingbroke Road/Cork Avenue and Bolingbroke Road/Claver Avenue.  These four intersections surround the block on which St. Charles Catholic Elementary School is situated. 

 

All-way stop controls are warranted at the intersection of Corona Street and Claver Avenue. The installation of the all-way stop control at this location should reduce the pedestrian and vehicular right-of-way conflicts.  The vehicular and pedestrian volumes are insufficient to justify all-way stop control at the remaining three intersections studied.

(May 9, 2016) Memo from Councillor Shiner

Summary

Dare to Dream Aviation Two LP submitted an application to Transport Canada for the Issuance of a Heliport Certificate for 1325 Lawrence Avenue East and 30 Railside Road. This location is only 140 metres away from a residential neighbourhood, at the rear parking lot of a commercial building that is also the home of a Tesla car dealership. Section CAR 305.08(1)(d) of the Canadian Aviation Regulations requires the applicant to, among other items, provide proof to the Minister of Transport that the applicant has consulted with the local government authority relating to the proposed heliport and adjacent land in accordance with the requirements of the applicable heliport standard.

 

At its meeting of January 19, 2016, North York Community Council adopted, with amendments, the recommendations in a report from the Director of Community Planning, North York District, dated January 19, 2016. These recommendations included requests for further information from the applicant, upon receipt of which, staff would arrange a community consultation meeting with area landowners, residents, and tenants. The requested information was not provided. The City of Toronto has since been advised by Transport Canada that the Heliport Certificate has been issued.

 

In reviewing the potential impacts of this helipad, the property's current zoning may be affected, including by what City Staff estimate is the removal of approximately 86 parking spaces out of the 205 spaces required on site to accommodate existing uses. Despite not receiving the requested materials and not carrying out a public consultation suitable to the City's standards, it would be beneficial to advise the local community of the approved heliport.
