MA-D2. Report of the Public Meeting on the Development Charges By-law and Background Study held on June 19, 2003

2. OPENING OF PUBLIC MEETING

Regional Chair Kolb called the public meeting to order at 9:33 a.m. in the Council Chambers, Regional Administrative Headquarters, 10 Peel Centre Dr., Brampton. He stated that the public meeting was open and was being held pursuant to the Development Charges Act, 1997.

Regional Chair Kolb stated that the purpose of the meeting was to inform the public of the Region's 2003 development charges proposal and to consider representations made in respect of the proposed development charges by-law.

3. CONFIRMATION OF PUBLIC NOTIFICATION

The Deputy Clerk stated that Notice of the Public Meeting was given in accordance with the Development Charges Act, 1997, by publication in the following news media having general circulation in the Region of Peel:

Toronto Star - May 28, 2003
Mississauga News - May 28, 2003
Brampton Guardian - May 28, 2003
Caledon Enterprise - May 28, 2003

4. FURTHER NOTICE REQUEST

The Regional Chair stated that if any person would like further notice of the future passage of the development charges by-law, that he/she give their full name, address, postal code and telephone number in writing at the Clerk's Division prior to leaving the meeting.

5. DEVELOPMENT CHARGES PROPOSAL

Regional Chair Kolb emphasized that the proposed by-law and background study is subject to change before being finalized by Council. He then called upon Dan Labrecque, Treasurer and Commissioner of Finance to explain the by-law adoption process and timing of the proposed 2003 Development Charges By-law.

a) Regional Municipality of Peel 2003 Development Charges By-law and Background Study
Overview by D. Labrecque, Treasurer and Commissioner of Finance

Received 2003-747

Dan Labrecque, Treasurer and Commissioner of Finance stated that this meeting is the formal public meeting required under the legislation to pass the development charges by-law. It is part of the process Council started over a year ago to deal with the issues around the provincial downloading of roads and changes in the water and wastewater quality standards. He noted that the by-law is not designed to deal with expansion of the urban boundary.

He further stated that the Region has been working with the development community and various stakeholders including the Boards of Trade to examine some of the details. Based on the feedback received today and from other consultations being undertaken, a summary of comments and any recommended changes to the by-law will be brought back to Council in August, he noted.

6. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION

a) Oral Submissions

i) Ron Starr, First Pro

Received 2003-748

Mr. Starr briefly outlined his concerns with respect to the approval process for dwelling units that are currently in progress. He noted that he is speaking specifically for First Pro Shopping Centres and the related home building companies they are involved with. He stated that 500-700 units are going through the process right now and he sought clarification of the effective date of the proposed by-law. He anticipated that the impact of the proposed development charges on one builder, such as First Pro, will be massive and it will be massive on homeowners as well.

Mr. Starr advised that First Pro currently has two projects they are selling and noted that the proposed development charges have not been built into the process for those developments. He stated that a lot of houses/units are being sold, and to add those charges without some sort of grandfather clause will result in people being hurt in the process. He requested that Regional staff and Members of Council take this into consideration when deliberating an effective date for the new development charges. In addition, he asked that consideration be given to how the building permits process is going to be handled.

He further stated that, in his experience, the Region of Peel has been very fair in the process in the past number of years and that the industry has been satisfied with the fairness of the Region. However, he noted increases of 22-50 per cent in the proposal and suggested that this is different from what has been observed in the past.

b) Written Submissions

i) Lynda J. Townsend Renaud, Lynda J. Townsend Renaud Law Office, Letter dated June 17, 2003 on behalf of the Urban Development Institute, Peel Chapter and the Greater Toronto Home Builders' Association with respect to the Region's proposed development charges by-law suggesting that further discussions are required on a variety of issues

Received 2003-749

7. CONCLUSION AND CLOSING OF PUBLIC MEETING

Regional Chair Kolb thanked those in attendance for their time and input, and stated that all comments received will be taken into consideration. He further stated that a follow-up report and supporting development charges by-law is scheduled to come back to the August 14, 2003 Regional Council meeting for final approval.
