MOTION

 

Moved by Councillor C. Doucet

Seconded by Councillor M. McRae

 

WHEREAS the section of Bank Street between Heron Road and Rockingham, on the east side, has had a long standing drainage problem between the commercial and residential properties,

 

WHEREAS one of the properties that contributed to the drainage issue, on Heron Road, was previously a city work yard,

 

WHEREAS one of the additional issues making drainage a problem in this area stems from a train derailment of three cars of tar in the early 1950’s in the Bank and Rockingham vicinity – currently city property known as Timmerman’s Park,

 

WHEREAS several developments in the past have been approved that did not fully require that work be undertaken to alleviate the existing drainages issues,

 

WHEREAS the City has recently developed a policy that requires proper drainage be undertaken on all development property

 

WHEREAS a development proposal has been filed for 1440 Bank Street that requires work be done to alleviate drainage issues, and that this property is at the northern end of the section between Heron and Rockingham and will therefore be expected to resolve all of the previous problems on this small site,

 

WHEREAS in order to comply with the new policy, the drainage costs currently being tendered to the development are far in excess of what would be anticipated under normal circumstance, with quotes in the range of $220,000 to $250,000,

 

BE IT RESOLVED that the City take the above into consideration and find that the developer should not be expected to absorb the full cost of the tendered contracts for solving the drainage issues of the upstream properties

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the developer be assessed a percentage of the cost of the drainage remediation that is in line with what would be expected for a lot of similar size
