Notice of Motion – Item 10a was dealt with.

a) Notice of Motion from Councillor Thompson Regarding Development Charge Relief for Brampton Christian School

Moved by Councillor Thompson;
Seconded by Councillor Palleschi;

Whereas, the Brampton Christian School paid Regional development charges in the amount of $243,180.74 in January 2009;

And whereas, the Brampton Christian School independently arranged at its own expense for the installation of pipes to connect to the Regional water system in 1974;

And whereas, the Brampton Christian School paid $1,059.05 in 1995 and $62,674.87 in 2009 for the Regional water services portion of Regional development charges;

And whereas, no consideration was given by the Region of Peel to any past costs borne for the installation of pipes by the Brampton Christian School to enable its connection to Regional water services;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Region of Peel provide a grant to the Brampton Christian School in the amount of $62,674.87 to offset the payment of Regional development charges.

Councillor Thompson stated that the Brampton Christian School (BCS) front ended its connection to Regional water in 1974; however, they were charged development charges for water in 2009. He noted that there has not been additional water usage by the school and requested support to provide a grant to BCS to refund $62,000 for Regional water development charges.

Councillor Mullin raised concern with respect to providing a grant from the tax base and inquired if it would be precedent setting. Norma Trim, Chief Financial Officer and Commissioner of Corporate Services, responded that it would set precedence as the BCS applied for the refund after the 90 day appeal period had expired and that the development charge is fixed for provision of services, not the usage of services.

Councillor Palleschi stated that developers that front end services receive credit on their Development Charge fees. He stated that he believes the BCS request for refund is not precedent setting as there was no water service provided by the Region when the school paid to connect to the Regional pipes.

Councillor Fennell requested a friendly amendment to the motion to state that BSC will receive a credit in the form of a grant, which was accepted.

Patrick O’Connor, Regional Solicitor and Director, Legal and Risk Management, stated that developers receive a credit for development charges when they front end costs to provide trunk services and not to hook up to or provide an extension to services.

Norma Trim noted that the BCS received $56,000 from the Region of Peel for the demolition and removal of their portables.

Councillor Thompson requested a recorded vote.

Moved by Councillor Thompson;
Seconded by Councillor Palleschi;

MA-E4. Rick Bonnette, Mayor, Town of Halton Hills, Letter dated June 30, 2010, Regarding a Request to the Province to Cover all Appeal Costs to the Ontario Municipal Board for Growth Plan Conformity Exercises

Moved by Councillor Mullin,
Seconded by Councillor Fennell;

That Town of Halton Hills Resolution Number 2010-0172, approved at its meeting held on June 28, 2010 and which reads as follows, be endorsed:

“Whereas, the Province of Ontario initiated and passed the Places to Grow Act;

And whereas, pursuant to that Provincial initiative under the Places to Grow Act, the Province issued a Provincial Growth Plan for the Greater Toronto Area and pursuant to that Act requires municipalities at the Regional and Local levels to amend their Official Plans to bring them into conformity with that Provincial Growth Plan;

And whereas, any Official Plan passed to achieve conformity with the Provincial Growth Plan must be approved by the Province;

And whereas, the Province permits appeals of its approval decisions on Regional and Local Official Plans regarding conformity to be appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board despite the fact that any appeals of the Growth Plan itself are handled by way of a Hearing Officer who reports to the Province and the Province makes the final Decision;

And whereas, the defence of any Regional and/or Local Official Plan to achieve conformity with the Provincial Growth Plan can be a long and costly process in front of the Ontario Municipal Board;

And whereas, municipalities are expected to defend their Official Plans for conformity at the Ontario Municipal Board despite the fact that the municipalities have had to pass those municipal official plans by reason of the Provincial Places to Grow Act;

And whereas, in Halton, the Region of Halton has passed Regional Official Plan Amendments #37 and #38 as required by the Places to Grow Act and in the case of Regional Official Plan Amendment #37 that amendment was approved by the Province and then appealed by development interests to The Ontario Municipal Board and the same is likely to occur with Regional Official Plan Amendment #38 and with some if not all of the corresponding local official plan amendments;

And whereas, even without any appeals to the Ontario Municipal Board there are significant costs for municipalities participating in the Provincially required Growth Plan conformity exercises pursuant to the Places to Grow Act;

And whereas, such municipalities should not have the added cost of participating in OMB appeals of the various Regional and Local Official Plans produced in compliance with Provincial requirements for conformity with the Provincial Growth Plan;

And whereas, the Province itself, in defending its Growth Plan, and indeed other Provincial Plans such as the Greenbelt Plan, has only Hearing Officer report exercises in response to changes and amendments sought by others to its Provincial Plans such as the Growth Plan and the Greenbelt Plan;

Now therefore be it resolved,

  1. That the Province of Ontario be requested to take responsibility for any Ontario Municipal Board appeal hearings related to any approvals of Regional and Local Official Plan Amendments that are passed pursuant to the Places to Grow Act in order to achieve conformity with that Act such that all costs related to defending a Growth Plan Conformity exercise before the Ontario Municipal Board are covered by the Province including the retention of any legal counsel, planning consultants, and other consultants and witnesses and also the time for Provincial or Regional or Local staff required as part of any defence before The Ontario Municipal Board;

  2. That the Province of Ontario be requested to provide "intervener funding" to any municipalities affected by the appeal of any Growth Plan conformity, Official Plan amendment to The Ontario Municipal Board so as to enable the municipalities involved to defend their positions with respect to the Provincial Growth Plan conformity exercise before The Ontario Municipal Board without added cost to the Municipal Service and Delivery System and higher property taxes;

  3. That a letter be sent by the Mayor along with this Resolution to the Premier of the Province of Ontario and the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing for their consideration and action in having the Province take the lead and the responsibility for the costs of any appeal proceedings before The Ontario Municipal Board on Growth Plan Conformity Official Plans by Regional and Local municipalities and by providing intervener funding to those municipalities who would be involved in any appeal proceedings respecting Growth Plan Conformity Exercises;

  4. That this Resolution be forwarded to all of the Regional and Local Municipalities within the Greater Toronto Area and to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario for their support and endorsement of this Resolution;

  5. That this Resolution be forwarded to the Wellington Halton Hills MPP, Mr. Ted Arnott, for his support of this Resolution; and

  6. All party leaders.”

And further, that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the three area municipalities in Peel, the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO), Peel-area MPPs, and to the Large Urban Mayors Caucus of Ontario (LUMCO).

Carried 2010-840

See also Resolution 2010-841

Councillor Mullin requested that Regional Council endorse the resolution passed by the Town of Halton Hills and directed staff to review the costs to the Region and area municipalities associated with defending Official Plans and Secondary Plans at the Ontario Municipal Board.

Councillor Fennell noted that no other Province or State has an inquiry Board which overrides the decisions of municipalities. Councillor Fennell raised concern for the use of municipal tax dollars for a program initiated by the Province and suggested that the Province should pay legal costs to support the objectives of the OMB. She requested that a copy of the resolution be circulated to the three area municipalities, AMO, Peel-area MPPs, and to the Large Urban Mayors Caucus of Ontario (LUMCO).

b) Community Door Human Services Centres (Oral)

Moved by Councillor Moore,
Seconded by Councillor Mahoney;

That Regional Council authorize the establishment of a $500,000 Human Services Centre Facility Revolving Fund from the 2010 Budget;

And further, that the Chief Administrative Officer and the Chief Financial Officer and Commissioner of Corporate Services be authorized to provide up to $500,000 from the Revolving Fund to Community Door to assist with immediate leasehold improvements required to establish the Community Door human services centres, subject to a satisfactory and appropriate business case and a plan to replenish the funds;

And further, that staff report back as part of the year-end financial report on the source of the funding and outcome of staff deliberations with Community Door.

Carried 2010-892

See also Resolution 2010-765

Janet Menard, Commissioner of Human Services, stated that over the past three years, Community Door has been working to develop a one-stop, community service centre in each of the Region’s three municipalities. The centres would provide a central and accessible location for a variety of social service agencies within the Region. To date, a number of social service agencies have confirmed their interest in the initiative. Community Door requires capital funds in order to retro-fit space in the Mississauga and Brampton buildings and have requested that the Region of Peel assist by making $500,000 available for this purpose.

Councillor Moore stated that Community Door requires the funding immediately and urged Council to support the recommendation, which was discussed in-depth at the Grants Ad hoc Committee meeting held immediately prior to the Regional Council meeting.

Councillor Miles expressed concern related to the ability of Community Door to raise the additional funds required to retro-fit their two buildings.

Councillor Paterak reported that the Region of Peel provides $590,000 in funds to social service agencies that have committed to the Community Door buildings and that those funds would be better spent if those agencies were in a centrally located and accessible location, under one roof.

Councillor Saito inquired if there was space in the Mississauga building recently acquired by the Region of Peel to house the social service agencies interested in re-locating to a one-stop location. R. Kent Gillespie, Commissioner of Employee and Business Services, responded that there is no surplus space in the new building.

Councillor Saito inquired if the funds requested from Community Door would be in the form of a loan or a grant and was advised by Councillor Mahoney that the recommendation is for the Region of Peel to make up to $500,000 available to Community Door in the form of a line of credit.

David Szwarc, Chief Administrative Officer, stated that the wording of the motion enables staff to determine if the Community Door business case is viable prior to releasing funds.
