DELEGATIONS TO COUNCIL REGARDING DEVELOPMENT CHARGES

c) Phil King, President, Orlando Corporation, Regarding the Proposed 2012 Development Charges By-law

Received 2012-940

See also Resolutions 2012-938, 2012-941 to 2012-949 inclusive, 2012-1002, 2012-1006, 2012-1007 and 2012-1029

Phil King, President, Orlando Corporation, acknowledged the time and effort that Regional staff provided to assist in understanding the complexities of the Development Charges (DC) Background Study, since the last Regional Council meeting held July 5, 2012.

He noted that during the review, reductions in the DC’s were quantified however, acceptable charges and a transition period for both non-residential and residential could not be agreed upon between the development industry and Regional staff.

Phil King stated that the proposed DC increase would place leasehold projects and development projects at risk which would affect collecting Regional DCs and tax revenue, should the projects fall through. Due to the lengthy site plan approval process, Phil King requested that a transition period be provided to January 31, 2013, to allow building permits to be picked up for all non-residential development (industrial, office and retail).

Phil King concurred with the one year cap of 33 per cent of DC’s for industrial and the phase-in over the one year period for “office” to review employment projections, however, he stated that a commitment needs to be made that the DC charge will be reduced if it is confirmed that the projections are inaccurate. He further requested that the 33 per cent DC rate be left in place until the employment projections are confirmed and he invited Regional staff to work with the development industry to advocate to the Province for the review of the projections.

d) Darren Steedman, Peel Chapter Chair, Building industry and Land Development Association (BILD), Regarding the Proposed 2012 Development Charges By-law

This item was withdrawn under Resolution 2012-938

Councillor Fennell arrived at 10:00 a.m.

e) Edna Toth, Peel Poverty Action Group Chair, Regarding Development Charges, and Corporate and Trade Union Donations to Councillors' Election Campaign Funds

Received 2012-941

See also Resolutions 2012-938, 2012-940, 2012-942 to 2012-949 inclusive, 2012-1002, 2012-1006, 2012-1007 and 2012-1029

Edna Toth, Chair, Peel Poverty Action Group, stated that over 1,000 people utilize homeless shelters each month in Peel Region and over 15,000 families may spend up to 20 years on the waiting list for affordable housing. She requested that Regional Councillors guide developers to build affordable homes, noting that such guidance would be better received if Councillors no longer accepted corporate donations for individual municipal election campaigns. Edna Toth noted that the City of Toronto banned union and corporate funding during the 2010 elections. She requested that Regional Council lobby the Provincial government to enact legislation in the Municipal Elections Act, to ban union and corporate funding for municipal elections which would save corporations more than $500,000, which could be used for charity.

t) Lucy Stocco, Vice President, Kravenside Developments Inc. (Tribute), Regarding the Proposed 2012 Development Charges By-law

Received 2012-942

See also Resolutions 2012-938, 2012-940, 2012-941, 2012-943 to 2012-949 inclusive, 2012-1002, 2012-1006, 2012-1007 and 2012-1029

Lucy Stocco, Vice President, Kravenside Developments Inc. (Tribute), indicated that Kravenside Developments Inc. has applied for all of the building permits related to a development application and requested that the effective date of the DC By-law remain, as recommended by Regional staff, October 4, 2012.

u) Ronald Webb, Davis Webb on behalf of Andrin (Heart Lake), Requesting Relief of the Timing of the Implementation of the New Development Charges and the Development Charges By-law

Received 2012-943

See also Resolutions 2012-938, 2012-940 to 2012-942 inclusive, 2012-944 to 2012-949 inclusive, 2012-1002, 2012-1006, 2012-1007 and 2012-1029

Ron Webb, Davis Webb, on behalf of Andrin (Heart Lake), stated the Andrin development consists of 122 townhouse units. He requested that the new DC not apply to the development and that Regional staff remove the clause in the subdivision agreement requiring that all municipal services must be installed prior to issuance of a building permit. Ron Webb noted that zoning applications and Official Plan Amendments were filed in 2008 and after an Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) hearing held in 2010, the OMB approved the project. A site plan application was filed in August 2010 and is close to receiving approval. Ron Webb stated that the Ontario Building Code allows the issuance of building permits without full municipal services having been installed within the development. Municipal services will be extended by Andrin and securities will be provided to ensure services will be installed.

Patrick O’Connor, Regional Solicitor and Director, Legal and Risk Management noted that Andrin is requesting a transitional period and he stated that the standard planning provision is to provide services prior to the issuance of a building permit, which is common municipal and Regional practice. Departing from this condition would set precedence for other developers. Should Regional Council direct staff to remove the condition, Brampton Fire Services would need to confirm that there is adequate water for fire purposes.

Additional Item– Items 5w was dealt with.

w) Tom Halinski, Partner, Aird & Berlis LLP on behalf of Fieldgate Commercial, Regarding the Proposed 2012 Development Charges By-law

Received 2012-944

See also Resolutions 2012-938, 2012-940 to 2012-943 inclusive, 2012-945 to 2012-949 inclusive, 2012-1002, 2012-1006, 2012-1007 and 2012-1029

Tom Halinski, Partner, Aird & Berlis LLP on behalf of Fieldgate Commercial Properties, supported Phil King’s presentation and the request for a transitional provision for applications which have been in the development approval process. He expressed concern in the lack of transitional period for retail projects noting that his client has three large scale projects that have been in the development process for over a year and will be issued building permits in the near future. Lease agreements are in place for the projects and Tom Halinski requested a transitional period for retail developments.

The presentation related to the 2012 Final Development Charges By-law listed as Item MA-B1 was dealt with.

Norma Trim, Chief Financial Officer and Commissioner of Corporate Services and Ed Zamparo, Manager, Corporate Finance, Financial Policy and Development Financing, Regarding the 2012 Final Development Charges By-law

Received 2012-945

See also Resolutions 2012-938, 2012-940 to 2012-944 inclusive, 2012-946 to 2012-949 inclusive, 2012-1002, 2012-1006, 2012-1007 and 2012-1029

A copy of the presentation is available from the Office of the Regional Clerk.

Norma Trim, Chief Financial Officer and Commissioner of Corporate Services, provided an update on discussions with the development community that have taken place since the July 5, 2012 Regional Council meeting regarding the technical review of the proposed Development Charges (DC) By-law. She noted that the technical review has taken place over the past five months and that five rounds of meetings were held from April 2012 through August, 2012. She stated that throughout the review meetings, the staff approach was fair and reasonable; rates were adjusted for legitimate reasons, and; creative opportunities were sought to reduce rates while balancing risks to the Region of Peel.

Norma Trim stated that upon adoption of the updated DC By-law, the Chief Financial Officer would undertake a review of employment data and trends to further inform Regional planning/servicing initiatives which would include collaborating with area municipal staff and the development industry.

In response to a question from Councillor Mullin, Norma Trim stated that if the transition provisions requested by the development industry are approved, the impact to the Region of Peel would be an additional $3 million for industrial; $5 million for office and $ 21million for non-residential, which would bring the total debt requirement to $75 million.

Councillor Saito expressed concern with respect to development applications that have been delayed due to external agency concerns that will be required to pay the new DC rate; noting that Council must balance trying to help businesses that will bring revenue and jobs to the Region while ensuring financial risks to the Region of Peel are minimized.

Councillor Paterak noted the need for transitional housing for older adults and inquired if a charge for free-hold townhouses designed for one or two person occupancy could be considered.

David Bingham, Treasurer and Director, Corporate Finance, noted that townhouses, less than or equal to 750 sq. ft., are included in the small residential rate and he committed to speaking to Councillor Paterak further on the issue.

Councillor Paterak advised that he would be making an amendment to the report recommendation to require that a minimum of one year notice of intention be provided to recommend amendment of the DC by-law resulting from the annual assessment without constraining any amendment upon lesser notice required to deal with technical matters.

Councillor Morrison stated her support for additional transition time for industrial and office developments that bring value to the community through the creation of jobs and reiterated the concerns raised by Councillor Saito with respect to development applications that have been working through the approval process and will now be subject to the increased DC rates.

Patrick O’Connor, Regional Solicitor and Director, Legal and Risk Management, stated that Council has authority to deal with requests for relief from Development Charges and that they would be dealt with on a case by case basis.

Councillor McCallion expressed concern that the Region of Peel is asking the upper levels of government for help with infrastructure costs while considering DC transition provisions that would further increase the Region’s debt.

Delegates on the subject of the recommendations from the Early Learning and Child Care in Peel Council Task Force spoke of the high quality staff and care provided at the Region of Peel Learn.Play.Care Centres. They expressed their disappointment with the recommendations arising from the Task Force and highlighted the value the Centres bring to neighbourhoods.

Additional concerns were raised with respect to the following:

• The availability of evening care;
• The impact to the highly trained early learning staff at the Centres;
• The provision of supports for children with special needs;
• The potential economic impact of people leaving their jobs in order to care for their child, due to a lack of quality of child care;
• The consideration of alternatives to closing the Centres;
• The recent receipt of provincial funding for the purposes of stabilizing the child care system and its impact on the recommendations;
• The rationale for closing the centres;
• The availability of child care for infants to age 18 months.

Janet Menard, Commissioner of Human Services, clarified statements made by the delegates regarding the reporting of child care vacancy rates. She stated that as of September 2012, there were 3,600 projected vacancies within the Purchase of Service (POS) System. The Learn.Play.Care (L.P.C.) Centres represent three per cent of the overall system.

Councillor Crombie expressed concern regarding the impact to the Malton community, noting that it is a high needs area. Janet Menard, acknowledged the service pressures of Ward 5, Mississauga and stated that staff are committed to ensuring there are no gaps in the System as a result of the Learn.Play.Care (L.P.C.) centres closures.

Councillor Thompson inquired why the final phase-out date was moved to September 2014 as opposed to September 2013. Janet Menard, responded that the 2014 date reflects the date when children who are currently enrolled in the Centres, will have aged out, naturally.

Councillor Fonseca inquired if during the phase out process, there is a possibility a parent might lose their current space for their child. Councillor Moore responded that no child will lose their space without an adequate replacement space somewhere else. She added that Area Councillors would be informed and involved when decisions need to be made regarding their ward Centres. Councillor Fonseca further inquired if the information she received regarding detailed demographics and child care capacity for her ward could be provided to the public in order to provide context to the decision.

Councillor Fonseca further inquired what the current enrolment numbers are in the Region L.P.C.s. Paul Lewkowicz, Specialist, Strategic Planning provided the total September 2012 enrolment numbers at 732. Councillor Fonseca further inquired whether or not charging actual full-fee to parents would help provide the needed resources to keep the Centres viable. Janet Menard responded that obtaining full-fees from parents would cover the costs, however in so doing, these parents would now be double subsidizing the younger children that would need to come into the Centres since the number of older children will be declining. Councillor Fonseca questioned what will happen to the subsidy for older children leaving for Full Day Kindergarten (FDK). Janet Menard responded that out of the $40 a day subsidy currently provided, most children in the Centres would continue receiving around $29 for extended day programs, meaning the majority of the financial subsidy would leave the Centre with the child.

Items Related to Human Services – Items HS-C2 to HS-C20 were dealt with.
