ITEM: RESPONSE TO PROVINCIAL CONSULTATION ON ONTARIO MUNICIPAL BOARD REFORM

Motion Yes No Absent/Recused
Motion To: WHEREAS the Province has proposed in its OMB Reform consultation paper related to de novo hearings that it might “Require the OMB to review municipal/approval authority decisions on a standard of reasonableness;” and WHEREAS the Province suggests that this approach would meet its goal that the OMB focus on “the validity of the decision under appeal”; and WHEREAS the intent of this approach would be to “give more weight to municipal and provincial decisions by moving the OMB away from de novo hearings;”and WHEREAS the Planning Act already has provisions that do not provide for true de novo hearings by requiring that the OMB must have regard to a decision made by a municipal council/approval authority as it relates to the same planning matter; as well as having regard to any information and material that the municipal council/approval authority considered to arrive at its decision; and WHEREAS there is also a mechanism in the Planning Act to provide an opportunity

ITEM: MOTIONS OF WHICH NOTICE HAS BEEN PREVIOUSLY GIVEN

Motion Yes No Absent/Recused
Motion To: WHEREAS on April 24th, 2013, City Council enacted its first Urban Lanes Management Policies in order to provide an “overarching framework” to address all such concerns over these rear lanes; and WHEREAS the Urban Lanes Management Policies did not take into account the fact that these lanes may require maintenance from time-to-time, may cause the City to be exposed to ongoing liability even though they may no longer have any positive municipal use, and yet discourage residential landowners from purchasing same due to the requirement that such lanes be sold at fair market value; and WHEREAS on January 22nd, 2014, City Council passed the following Motion concerning a Pilot Project in Ward 13: THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT Council direct staff to prepare a report on the feasibility of a Pilot Project to offer such rear lanes for sale to abutting residential landowners for a nominal payment where the City has determined that there is no prospect for the lane to serve a public
