Received 2015-437
(Unconfirmed - see page 182 for details)

See also Resolutions 2015-438 to 2015-446 inclusive

Bonnie Ledson, Resident, Town of Caledon, discussed the need to protect the Cheltenham Badlands as a unique, sensitive geological site, noting that the entire 36.6 hectare site is an Area of Scientific Interest and represents Ontario's past and present geological environments. She requested that the report listed as Item 9.4 on the June 11, 2015 Regional Council agenda, which recommends the release of funds to advance the design of the Badlands parking lot, be deferred until a fully funded, comprehensive plan has been determined.

In response to a question from Councillor Shaughnessy, Bonnie Ledson advised that one public meeting on the issue of the Badlands parking lot was held in 2008 and that subsequent notifications regarding the site were received via Councillor and Bruce Trail Conservancy newsletters.

5.3. Irene Reimanis-Aziz, Resident, Town of Caledon, Regarding the $1 Million in Reserve Funds for the Cheltenham Badlands Parking Lot

Received 2015-438
(Unconfirmed - see page 182 for details)

See also Resolutions 2015-437, 2015-439 to 2015-446 inclusive

Irene Reimanis-Aziz, Resident, Town of Caledon noted the importance of through-lanes on Regional Road 12 (Olde Base Line Road) as it is the only road first responders have to access the Niagara Escarpment and that the challenging hills and visual distraction of the Badlands negatively impact drivers who are unfamiliar with the area. She questioned why an arterial road design was not included as part of the Badlands parking lot plan and suggested that it would be premature to spend Regional funds for the parking lot while the development permit is under appeal. She requested that the funds be held until there is a comprehensive plan, including auxiliary lanes, to ensure safety for visitors and residents.

In response to a question from Councillor Shaughnessy, Irene Reimanis-Aziz stated that area residents are not opposed to the promotion of tourism, but feel value-added features should be considered, such as a Badlands Cafe or tour bus, to encourage repeat visits and spending in the area.

5.4. Theresa Nadeau, Resident, Town of Caledon, Regarding the Application by the Region of Peel to Re-address the $1 million Funding for the Cheltenham Badlands Parking Lot

Received 2015-439

Theresa Nadeau, Resident, Town of Caledon, called upon Regional Council to work toward a common goal based on truth, understanding and fair play. She provided an overview of previous Council decisions related to the Cheltenham Badlands, and the provincial guidelines for land use planning. Theresa Nadeau highlighted the need for a management plan that outlines the amenities of the development as well as how the development will be managed on an ongoing basis, including during high-traffic periods, prior to the spending of taxpayers' money.

Item 5.6 was dealt with.

5.6. Ian Sinclair, Resident, Town of Caledon, Providing Comments to the Report of the Commissioner of Public Works titled "Cheltenham Badlands Update", listed as Item 9.4 on the June 11, 2015 Regional Council Agenda

Received 2015-440
(Unconfirmed - see page 182 for details)

See also Resolutions 2015-437 to 2015-439 inclusive and 2015-441 to 2015-446 inclusive

Ian Sinclair, Resident, Town of Caledon, requested that Regional Council not deviate from Resolution 2014-774 which states that there be no spending of any Regionally committed funds for the Badlands parking lot until such time as a comprehensive plan has been reviewed and approved by Regional Council. He further requested that the report listed as Item 9.4 on the June 11, 2015 Regional Council agenda be received and that stopping restrictions be implemented on Olde Base Line Road. He encouraged Regional Council to direct staff to participate in mediation with the appellants of the Niagara Escarpment Development Permit, and all involved parties, to avoid expensive hearings.

5.5. Sean Fraser, Director, Heritage Programs and Operations and Kendrick Doll, Natural Heritage Coordinator, Ontario Heritage Trust; Beth Gilhespy, Executive Director, The Bruce Trail Conservancy; and, Eric Baldin, Senior Conservation Lands Planner, Credit Valley Conservation Authority, Providing an Update on the Cheltenham Badlands Site as per Regional Council Resolution 2014-347

He provided an update on safety and conservation initiatives that have been undertaken since September 2014 and requested the continued support of the Region of Peel for addressing the urgent public safety issues on Olde Base Line Road by releasing previously approved funds to support the detailed design of the 33 car parking lot and implement a no stopping zone along Olde Base Line Road adjacent to the Badlands.

He stated that the parking lot is the only technically sound, rational and effective solution to an urgent public safety issue and that the Management Planning Team is committed to working with their partners in the community to transform the Cheltenham Badlands into a safe, publicly accessible and engaging recreational destination that will be conserved and protected for future generations.

Councillor Shaughnessy noted that the protective fence that was recently installed to close the Badlands site to visitors, along with the implementation of a by-law to restrict stopping on Olde Base Line Road, would address concerns related to the site without requiring one million dollars in funding from the Region of Peel.

In response to a question from Councillor Thompson, Sean Fraser advised that the Cheltenham Badlands Management Planning Team is in the process of selecting a consultant to work on developing the comprehensive plan and that the formal public process will commence over the summer.

She stated that the immediate issue is one of safety and that Regional Council should release funds to enable the parking lot design work to proceed.

Councillor Shaughnessy cautioned that if the appeal of the Niagara Escarpment Development Permit is successful, the Region would have unnecessarily spent $300,000 and she suggested that the decision to expend any funds be deferred until the appeal has been dealt with.

Councillor Parrish requested a ruling from the Regional Chair as to whether a two-thirds majority vote would be necessary to deal with her motion.

The Regional Chair ruled that a two-thirds majority vote would not be required as the motion was not contrary to Resolution 2015-239 from the April 16, 2015 Regional Council meeting.

Councillor Groves appealed the ruling of the Regional Chair and requested a recorded vote.

The Regional Clerk stated that a vote in favour of the appeal to the Chair's ruling would be a vote in agreement with the Chair's ruling.

Shall the decision of the Presiding Officer be sustained.

Received 2015-467
(Unconfirmed - see page 182 for details)

See also Resolutions 2015-454 and 2015-469

Patrick Harrington, Partner, Aird and Berlis, on behalf of Argo Development, stated that the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing offered facilitation only with respect to ROPA 28 and ROPA 29, not for anything that is currently before a public process. He noted that the only ROPA currently before the Ontario Municipal Board is ROPA 28 and that his client are not opposed to ROPA 28 as it currently stands. However, should population be added to the ROPA 28, the position of his client would change. He also stated that in his opinion, the facilitation would not save significant time or money because should the Minutes of Settlement arising from facilitation include population for ROPA 28, his clients and other landowners would be in a position to contest the settlement.

Moved by Councillor Parrish,
Seconded by Councillor Saito;

That the agenda for the June 11, 2015 Regional Council meeting include an additional delegation from Michael Melling, Davies Howe Partners LLP, regarding Provincial Facilitation.

Michael Melling, Davies Howe Partners LLP, on behalf of Solmar Development, advised that his client would welcome the participation of other landowners in the facilitation process and that their participation was the subject of confidential discussions held in May 2015.

Discussion related to Item 10.3 continued.

Councillor Moore noted that Resolution 2015-239 from the April 16, 2015 Regional Council meeting stated that the Region of Peel would participate in the facilitation process subject to conditions. She requested that the minutes reflect her disagreement with the ruling of the Regional Chair that the motion placed by Councillor Parrish is not contrary to Resolution 2015-239.

Councillor Moore expressed concern with the clauses related to punitive action, noting that such wording should have been included in Resolution 2015-239, prior to the Town of Caledon consulting with the public on the issue.

Councillor Thompson stated that if the motion on the floor is approved, it could have serious implications for the entire Region of Peel, noting that it is contrary to the Peel Planning Matrix and the local planning process.

In response to a question from Councillor Innis, Arvin Prasad, Director, Integrated Planning, confirmed that the allocation of growth should be conducted through a process that is open to the public.

Councillor Carlson highlighted the challenges of dealing with growth in the Region of Peel, given its composition of two large cities and a rural town.

Councillor Parrish requested that the motion be split to vote on clauses three and four separately, and stated that should clauses three and four be approved, she would withdraw clauses one and two.

Moved by Councillor Parrish,
Seconded by Councillor Medeiros;

That the Town of Caledon, which is refusing to comply with Motion 2015-239, incur all costs including an outside solicitor to represent Caledon for any and all OMB Engagements related to Caledon development, commencing immediately;

And further, that the Town, which is refusing to comply with Motion 2015-239, pay all costs for infrastructure related to the development of the BRES lands unless and until Peel Council agrees this is the best option for future development.

Councillor Crombie moved to call the question.
