MOTION

 

Moved by Councillor A. Cullen

Seconded by Councillor J. Stavinga

 

That Council approve amendments to the former City of Ottawa Zoning By-law, 1998 [By-law Number 93-88] to repeal By-law Number 2005-18 and to change the zoning for the area known as Queensway Terrace North (QTN) to implement new parking provisions, as shown on Document 1 and as detailed in Document 2, as amended by the following:

 

WHEREAS the information provided in the Discussion section of staff report ACS2006-PGM-POL-0069 stated the purpose of the proposed zoning amendment is to permit front yard parking within QTN in those situations where there is no alternative to providing a legal parking space under the Zoning By-law;

 

AND WHEREAS the intent of the establishment of zoning requirements with respect to the conditions in which front yard parking may occur ensures appropriate and consistent design of these parking areas, avoiding large paved areas and excluding the most offensive types of front yard parking;

 

AND WHEREAS the report stated that the development standards in QTN area should permit front yard parking subject to specific development standards and only where the interior side yards are both less than three metres and are not capable of being developed for parking;

 

AND WHEREAS this intent is not clearly reflected in “Document 2” Details of Recommended Zoning of the said report;

 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Details of Recommended Zoning attached to Staff Report ACS2006-PGM-POL-0069, setting out the proposed Zoning By-law amendment, be revised to amend for the purposes of clarification the following:

·                 Inserting Paragraph (c) after 2(b) to say “Paragraph (b) prohibits, whether before, during or after the creation of a front yard parking space, the creation of any new addition or structure within the interior side yard which would result in the removal of any land area which would have been available for parking purposes;

·                    Within Paragraph 2(d) inserting the words “area of the” immediately after “…front yard parking exceed 50% of the…” and before “front or corner side yard…”.

 

AND WHEREAS by motion the Committee amended Recommendation 1 (c) to add “…and direct Building Services to inspect those duplexes that have been converted illegally to triplexes listed in the QTN-PAC Report, to ensure that these units meet Building Code” such that the recommendation to Council stated:

 

Direct the Planning and Growth Management Department, Planning, Environment and Infrastructure Policy Branch, to contact owners of all duplexes within the study area, and encourage those with existing third units to regularize their units to meet the new requirements by making any necessary changes to ensure Zoning and Building Code compliance, and direct Building Services to inspect those duplexes that have been converted illegally to triplexes listed in the QTN PAC Report, to ensure that these units meet Building Code;

 

AND WHEREAS the Chief Building Official advises that resource availability is such that only mandatory Code inspections can be undertaken and additionally, in the absence of a warrant, Building Code inspections can only be undertaken where there is a building permit application or permit issued for the property/building, which is not the case for any of the illegal units;

 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the recommendation 1 (c) be amended to state: 

 

Direct the Planning and Growth Management Department, Planning, Environment and Infrastructure Policy Branch, to contact owners of all duplexes within the study area, and encourage those with existing third units to regularize their units to meet the new requirements by making any necessary changes to ensure Zoning and Building Code compliance.

 

AND BE IT RESOLVED that that no further notice, pursuant to Section 34(17) of the Planning Act, be provided.

AND WHEREAS the ToR include a characterization of the IC&I waste stream, diversion options and mechanisms to get to 60% diversion and beyond; the implementation of alternative technologies, source separation and recycling to reach diversion goals, and the need for landfill capacity in light of diversion;

 

AND WHEREAS the consultant team engaged by the City is currently preparing the Draft Scoping Document;

 

AND WHEREAS the Council approved Scoping Document will define the entire IC&I waste review and the public needs to be part of the process from the outset;

 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that following the public consultation the Final Draft Scoping Document will be submitted to the Planning and Environment Committee in January and subsequently to Council for approval;

 

AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that City staff prepare a detailed budget for the IC&I review and Master Plan, that ensures that the review and plan be conducted in a cost effective manner, and that City staff include time lines for key deliverables.
