5. DELEGATIONS/PRESENTATIONS

a) Dave McKendrick, President, Accord Building Consultants Inc., Acting as Agent for Trac Holdings Inc., Hearing of Complaint Under Section 20 of the Development Charges Act 1997, as amended, Regarding the Calculation of Develoment Charges under the Region of Peel's Development Charges By-law 68-1999

HEARING OF COMPLAINT - DEVELOPMENT CHARGES ACT, 1997, (SECTION 20)


1. Opening of Hearing of Complaint

The hearing opened at 9:41 a.m. The Regional Chair called the hearing of complaint to order and indicated it was being held pursuant to Section 20, Subsection 4, of the Development Charges Act, 1997, as amended, with respect to hearing the complainant of Trac Holdings Inc, regarding development charges.


2. Confirmation of Notification of Hearing

The Deputy Clerk stated that notice was given in accordance with Section 20, Subsection 5, of the Development Charges Act, 1997, as amended by prepaid first class mail on September 12, 2003 to the attention of Dave McKendrick, President, Accord Building Consultants Inc., with copy to Trac Holdings Inc. and Mary and Frank Merola.

3. Communication from Accord Building Consultants Inc., dated August 11, 2003

The Regional Chair noted that the Communication dated August 11, 2003 from Accord Building Consultants Inc. regarding 12850 Centreville Creek Road, Bolton, was on the October 9, 2003 agenda.


4. Delegation by Dave McKendrick, President, Accord Building Consultants Inc., Acting as Agent for Trac Holdings Inc.

The Regional Chair called upon Mr. McKendrick, President, Accord Building Consultants Inc, representing Trac Holdings Inc.

Mr. McKendrick stated that the issue was whether development charges are applicable to the cross-dock facility at 12850 Centreville Creek Road. He stated that in his opinion, the definition of "storage facility" under By-law Number 68-1999 does not apply to the subject location as goods are not stored on site, they are loaded, sorted and distributed to trucks. In this regard, Mr. McKendrick stated that the "parking" and "loading" definitions should apply to the facility and are the basis of his calculation of the gross floor area to be used in determining the Development Charges that are payable.

Mr. McKendrick requested that the definitions within the by-law be applied as written and noted that staff had four years to amend the definitions if they were not satisfied with them.


5. Submissions by Regional Staff

Dan Labrecque, Treasurer and Commissioner of Finance and Rob Elliott, Supervisor, Development Financing, responded with the staff position. Mr. Elliott stated it is staff's opinion that while the by-law allows for exemptions for parking and loading spaces, the Total Floor Area in dispute constitutes a truck terminal use which attracts charges.

He noted that full exemption has been allowed for by Town of Caledon staff for the loading dock areas which comprise a reasonable allowance for an exempt area for loading of vehicles as provided for in the by-law.

With respect to the parking area, staff believes this to be more in the nature of space used in the truck terminal (cross dock) operation than space exempt for the parking of vehicles. He noted that numerous other buildings, similar in nature, have paid the charges without complaint and the definitions within the by-law have been used for a number of years without complaint.

Mr. Elliott stated that Region of Peel staff concur with the Town of Caledon's interpretation and calculations of the by-law.


6. Conclusion and Closing of Hearing

The Regional Chair indicated that due consideration would be given to the presentations heard and submissions received.

The Chair concluded the hearing of the complainant regarding 12850 Centreville Creek Road, Bolton and stated that notice of the decision reached by Regional Council would be given in accordance with the Development Charges Act, 1997.

The hearing closed at 10:07 a.m.
