a) Christine Pacini, Principal, SHS Consulting, and Janet Menard, Executive Director, Transition and Integration, Human Services, Providing an Update on the Progress made with respect to Council Resolution 2008-368 Directing the Regional Chair to Meet with Private Sector Developers and Home Builders in the Region of Peel to Determine what Incentives are Required for the Private Sector to Build Social Housing

Received 2008-1070

See also Resolutions 2008-1069 and 2008-1071

Councillor Fennell arrived at 9:49 a.m.
Councillor McCallion arrived at 9:49 a.m.
Councillor Adams arrived at 10:06 a.m.

Christine Pacini, Principal, SHS Consulting and Janet Menard, Executive Director, Transition and Integration, Human Services, Region of Peel, provided an update on the progress made with respect to Council Resolution 2008-368, directing the Regional Chair to meet with private sector developers and home builders in the Region of Peel to determine what incentives are required for the private sector to build social housing.

Janet Menard stated there were four key issues that developers identified regarding building affordable housing:

• The availability of land due to scarcity and cost;
• The approval processes and timeframes which add to costs;
• Zoning challenges related to re-zoning land and “Not In My Back Yard” (NIMBY) related delays; and
• The high cost of development from rising construction costs, limited financing options and increased energy costs.

Christine Pacini presented the results of an exercise which outlined the development costs of a hypothetical affordable housing project in the Region of Peel.

Christine Pacini stated that without any cost mitigation, the rental rates for this hypothetical affordable housing project would be 1.8 times higher than the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) average market rents. Christine Pacini outlined how the Region of Peel could assist in reducing the overall cost of this hypothetical affordable housing project by reducing soft costs such as building permit fees and school board levies as well as hard costs such as hydro connection and land value transfer taxes.

Christine Pacini provided Council with an update of rental housing affordability in the Region of Peel which demonstrates that a significant segment of the population cannot afford current average market rents.

Christine Pacini highlighted the following two action items that were identified by Region of Peel staff, and representatives of the building industry:

Chair Kolb stated that building industry representatives will be participating in a workshop to develop strategies that would help develop an affordable housing pilot project.

Councillor Morrison asked if it were possible for the Region of Peel to provide funding to developers in order to make two affordable units in each condo or multi-unit residential development.

Janet Menard responded that Regional staff are willing to collaborate with developers on such a plan.

Councillor Whitehead stated that with the high costs of developing new affordable housing units in the Region of Peel, rent supplements may be a more cost effective approach.

Councillor Paterak questioned the average income of residents on the waiting list and stated that such information is important to provide to the federal government as the current minimum wage is not sufficient in light of the costs of housing.

Councillor McCallion thanked staff for the work undertaken for the presentation. She noted, however, that the presentation does not explain the difference between social housing and affordable housing; as well as the financial position of those on the waiting list for housing. Councillor McCallion suggested that BILD approach the federal government on the issue of social housing, as they did on the infrastructure issue.

Councillor Palleschi stated that joint ventures involving local churches and a legion have helped make it possible for the Region of Peel to build new affordable housing units and the Region must continue to look for opportunities for partnership.

Additional Item – Item 7.2a was dealt with.
