5. DELEGATIONS

5.1. Alex Dumesle, Manager, Eco-Business Programs, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority; and Chandra Sharma, Watershed Specialist, Etobicoke-Mimico and Senior Manager, Climate Programs, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, to Update Regional Council on the Partners in Project Green Program

Received 2014-780

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

Chandra Sharma, Watershed Specialist, Etobicoke-Mimico and Senior Manager, Climate Programs, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), thanked the Region of Peel for the continued support of the Partners in Project Green program, as part of the undertaking of the Peel Climate Change Strategy goals. Alex Dumesle, Manager, Eco-Business Programs, TRCA, discussed the progress that has been made since the inception of the program, as a result of political, community and business support. He highlighted achievements including: energy and waste management savings, education engagement, 2014 collective projects and events/workshops, and eco-business planning for employment lands.

Members of Regional Council thanked the delegates for their presentation and the achievements that Partners in Project Green has accomplished to date.

5.2. Jotvinder Sodhi, President, Home Owners Welfare Association; and Sameer Khan, Resident, Regarding a Development Levies Increase Homeowners were Required to Pay at Time of Closing; Enforced Contract with Vendor for Hot Water Rental; and Front Layout Design

Received 2014-781

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

Jotvinder Sodhi, President, Home Owners Welfare Association and Sameer Khan, Resident, stated that purchasers of new homes in the Castlemore on the Humber subdivision in the City of Brampton were not aware of the fine print in their contractual agreement with the builder which stipulated that they were obliged to pay any additional levies on the closing date. The construction of the homes was delayed for approximately two years and during this time there was an increase in development charges. Some families were not able to pay the additional amounts and lost their deposits while others had to delay closing which resulted in additional costs. The delegates assert that the development charge increase was wrongfully transferred to homebuyers and requested that the Region of Peel investigate the matter and that the homebuyers be refunded the increased portion of the development charges.

Councillor Sprovieri clarified that some purchasers were required to pay up to $35,000 in increased Development Charges, factoring in the size of the home and Harmonized Sales Tax. He noted that his research of the matter revealed that the development was delayed as a result of an issue with the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) regarding a watercourse on the site, that took 18 months to resolve. He noted that requirements of the Endangered Species Act have contributed to development delays across the Greater Toronto Area and suggested that a solution to the issue is required. Councillor Sprovieri requested that the concerns raised by the delegation be referred to Region of Peel staff to determine how to assist the residents to recover some of the money spent as a result of the increase in Development Charges.

Regional Councillors did not support Councillor Sprovieri's request for referral of the issue to staff.

Councillor Sanderson suggested that the delegates discuss their concerns with the Ministry of Natural Resources.

Regional Chair Kolb clarified that Region of Peel Development Charges are determined on the principle that growth should pay for growth and that the process of reviewing Development Charges is lengthy and involves many consultations with the building industry and the public. He suggested that the delegates raise their concerns with their Member of Provincial Parliament and offered his assistance in arranging an appointment.

In response to a question from Councillor Iannicca, David Szwarc, Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), stated that while staff are sympathetic to the residents' circumstances, the agreement they signed with the builder included language to the effect that any increase in charges would be the responsibility of the purchaser and he confirmed that the Region of Peel is not a party to that agreement.

Patrick O'Connor, Regional Solicitor and Director, Legal Services, stated that the issue raised by the delegates is a matter of contractual dispute and suggested that the appropriate course of action would be for the residents to seek independent legal advice.

In response to questions from Councillor Sprovieri, the CAO noted that there was a report on the agenda related to the environmental review process, including delays in provincial approvals.

Councillor Crombie arrived at 9:51 a.m.
Councillor Whitehead arrived at 9:44 a.m.
