Fabio Mazzocco requested that Regional Council hold a public meeting. He further requested that the BRES ROPA be processed for approval without delay and to consider the inclusion of infrastructure necessary for BRES in the 2015 DC By-law update.

See also Resolutions 2015-194, 2015-196, 2015-200 and 2015-202 to 2015-206 inclusive

Maurizio Rogato, Director of Planning and Development, Solmar Development Corp., identified two issues to be resolved: cost sharing of the financial risks associated with growth and outstanding comments from the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH). Maurizio Rogato indicated that the Minister of MMAH has appointed the Provincial Development Facilitator in an effort to resolve long standing land use conflicts relating to Peel and Caledon Official Plans. Maurizio Rogato encouraged Peel to participate in the facilitation.

Councillor Thompson stated that neither the Town of Caledon nor the Region of Peel have received a written request from the Minister to participate in the facilitation process. Maurizio Rogato advised that he cannot comment on the facilitation process because of its confidential nature.

In response to a question from Councillor Innis, Patrick O'Connor, Regional Solicitor, stated that the Region of Peel has not received a written notice from the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing regarding participation in the facilitation and confirmed that staff will require Council direction to proceed with a facilitation process. He stated that Regional Legal Counsel has written to the Facilitator requesting that a formal letter be addressed to Regional Council with recommendations regarding a facilitation process.

Councillor Groves stated that a facilitation process excludes public participation and Caledon residents have made it clear that they want to be involved in the process.

Councillor Jeffrey stated that Regional Council need to provide direction to staff regarding the facilitation process because of the complexities of the BRES application and that the facilitation process would be beneficial in resolving the issues on BRES and ROPA 28.

At 11:09 a.m., in accordance with section 239(2) of the Municipal Act, 2001, as amended, the following motion was placed:

Moved by Councillor Thompson,

Additional Item - Item 5.4:

5.4. Steven Zakem, Partner, Aird & Berlis, LLP, Regarding the Bolton Residential Expansion Study Regional Official Plan Amendment Application and Process

Received 2015-200

See also Resolutions 2015-194, 2015-196, 2015-197 and 2015-202 to 2015-206 inclusive

Steven Zakem, Partner, Aird & Berlis LLP, stated that he represents about half of the landowners whose properties are situated in the Mayfield West Phase 2 Secondary Plan Settlement Area Boundary Expansion (ROPA 29). He advised that Solmar is the lone appellant to ROPA 29 and noted that the Town of Caledon has had a tri-nodal strategy of growth in its municipality and growth has been allocated to rural service centres of Bolton, Caledon East and Mayfield West areas. ROPA 29 was adopted following an extensive process. Steven Zakem informed that ROPA 29 is a stand-alone amendment which does not affect Bolton. The landowners are hopeful that, with a strong message from Region of Peel and Town of Caledon Councils, Solmar will withdraw its appeal to the OMB.

Steven Zakem expressed the opinion that a facilitation process is not appropriate in these circumstances and that it could be viewed as rewarding the appellant for inappropriately appealing a matter to leverage planning decisions elsewhere in the area.

Regional Council recessed at 12:42 p.m.

Notice of Motion - Item 14.1 was dealt with.

14. NOTICES OF MOTION

14.1. Notice of Motion at the Request of Councillor Saito Regarding Garbage Recycling Carts

Moved by Councillor Saito,
Seconded by Councillor Groves;

Whereas, certain Councillors have received feedback from residents regarding the 2016 Cart-Based Collection Program with concerns over the exchange fees for carts should they receive a size that is not useable;

And whereas, the default sizes are based on square footage of a home and not on the number of residents living there;

And whereas, residents with a larger home and small family who receive the largest (default) cart may have concern over the size and space for storage;

Therefore be it resolved, that a 30 day grace period from approximately April 1, 2016 to April 30, 2016 be provided to residents to enable them to change their cart size at no charge;

And further, that staff report to a future meeting of Regional Council with a procedure to administer such a grace period and the funding source, for the consideration of Regional Council.

Carried 2015-201

Norman Lee, Director, Waste Management stated that Regional staff contacted the cart supplier, IPL, to determine if they would entertain exchanges during the "delivery period" and advised that IPL highly recommended against it based on previous experience which resulted in significant problems. Norman Lee informed Regional Council that by allowing exchanges during the "delivery period", IPL would require the Region of Peel to waive all commitments and liquidated damages related to on-time deliveries, including their commitment to have all carts delivered by mid-December.

Norman Lee recommended that the Region of Peel maintain the 90-day period as previously approved by Regional Council. He stated that the cost of waiving exchange fees for 30 days following the 90 days period could be approximately $3 million to $5 million if the Region receives an estimated 20 per cent cart exchanges. With regards to costing, Regional staff has yet to determine the cost to make exchanges during the delivery period however he estimates that it would be significantly higher than what was budgeted.

Councillor Saito expressed her concern that the default large cart size for detached homes could become problematic to residents due to its size. She stated that the Region of Peel should not be charging residents to exchange their carts within a grace period. Councillor Saito felt strongly that Regional Council should give Peel residents the opportunity to exchange carts when the bi-weekly cart collections is implemented in January 2016. She stated that the fourth clause of the motion could be amended to 30 days following the 90-day implementation period, free of charge; and, that subsequent fee charges will be applied following the proposed grace period.

Councillor Sprovieri suggested that the Region should make some provisions during the 90 day implementation period that would permit residents who opted for smaller carts to exchange to larger carts.

Councillor Miles supported the proposed motion noting that the grace period will minimize the number of complaints or requests the Region will receive during the implementation period. She stated that providing a grace period for the exchange of carts, free of charge, is reasonable and gives the residents the chance to make an informed decision on their preferred cart sizes.

Dan Labrecque, Commissioner of Public Works, clarified that the cart exchange will be made at the residents' home/curb side and would result in additional costs to the program. He suggested that the motion be amended to include the funding source to cover the additional costs.

Councillor Moore stated that she agrees imposing fees to exchange the cart size is preferable as residents may not want to exchange carts if they have to pay for it. She also noted that if carts will be exchanged for free there would be a significant workload for staff and a loss of revenue to the Region.

Councillor Starr suggested that a $10 per cart exchange fee be considered to prevent residents from frequent exchanges during the exchange period.

Item 16.3 was dealt with.

16. IN CAMERA MATTERS

Seconded by Councillor Crombie;

That the Region of Peel encourage affected landowners and elected officials from the Town of Caledon to work with the Provincial Facilitator to discuss long standing land use issues associated with the Regional Official Plan Amendment for the Bolton Residential Expansion Study and ROPA 28.

Councillor Innis stated that, if approved, the proposed facilitation process would be circumventing the public's participation with regards to the Bolton Residential Expansion Study. Councillor Innis requested that Council's consideration of the facilitation process be deferred until the Region of Peel receives the formal request from the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing.

In response to a question of clarification from Councillor Crombie, Patrick O'Connor, Regional Solicitor, advised that requesting the Provincial Development Facilitator to submit a formal request that the Region of Peel be involved in the process is deemed appropriate.

Moved by Councillor Innis,
Seconded by Councillor Thompson;

That the motion to encourage affected landowners and elected officials from the Town of Caledon to work with the Provincial Facilitator to discuss long standing land use issues associated with the Regional Official Plan Amendment for the Bolton Residential Expansion Study and ROPA 28, be deferred until such time as the Region of Peel has received a written request from the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing to participate in a provincial facilitation process.

Councillor Innis requested a recorded vote.
