Moved by Councillor R. Bloess

Seconded by Councillor B. Monette

 

That Recommendation 2 be amended to add the following:

 

WHEREAS one of the main reasons for initiating the current Interprovincial Crossing Study is the need to resolve the heavy truck traffic volume through the City's downtown core along the King Edward / Rideau / Waller/ Nicholas (KERWN) corridor; and

 

WHEREAS the preliminary findings in Phase 1 of the Interprovincial Crossings Study indicated that the KERWN corridor should remain open to trucks and would likely continue to carry approximately 60% of the total future interprovincial truck movement, meaning that no significant reduction to truck volumes on King Edward will be realized; and

 

WHEREAS Phase 2B of the Interprovincial Crossings Study will build upon the results of Phase 1 and be limited to the consideration of three possible corridors for an additional interprovincial crossing; and

 

WHEREAS the Ottawa Official Plan calls for removal of the truck route designation from the King Edward / Rideau / Waller/ Nicholas corridor upon completion of a new interprovincial crossing; and

 

WHEREAS there is an expectation by the residents of Sandy Hill and Lowertown that a new crossing would result in a ban of heavy through-trucks from this corridor; and

 

WHEREAS the City of Gatineau has passed a resolution calling for the KERWN corridor to continue to remain open to heavy trucks;

 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT while recognizing that the Ottawa Official Plan calls for removal of the truck route designation from the King Edward / Rideau / Waller/ Nicholas corridor upon completion of a new interprovincial crossing, that the Interprovincial Crossing Study proponents be requested to undertake a comprehensive study of the diversion of all trucks from the KERWN corridor and that this study:

 

i)          Includes an analysis of the number and type of trucks likely to continue using KERWN and the number being diverted to a new east end crossing if the truck route designation is removed as per the City of Ottawa Official Plan;

ii)         Determines the feasibility and implications of a complete ban of intercity heavy trucks from the KERWN corridor;

iii)        Includes an economic impact analysis of the diversion scenarios in i) and ii) above on truck traffic;

WHEREAS the zoning of municipal address 332 Wilbrod is R4T[1509], it is located in a Residential Fourth Density Zone, the purpose of which is to allow "a wide mix of residential building forms ranging from detached to low rise apartment dwellings";

 

WHEREAS the exception [1509], put in place in 1979, allowed also for a restaurant to operate at this address, which would not otherwise be allowed under residential zoning;

 

WHEREAS this exemption allows for a use which is highly uncharacteristic of this dense, predominantly residential and historic neighbourhood;

 

WHEREAS Since the exemption [1509] is in place and a restaurant is a permitted use, it was necessary in the past for the AGCO to include certain conditions with regards to the operation and use of the restaurant's liquor licence to prevent the impending restaurant from inadvertently operating as a bar;

 

AND WHEREAS there have been objections expressed by the community as well as enforcement concerns related to numerous noise complaints recorded against this location when it had operated as a licensed establishment in the past;

 

AND WHEREAS clause 6(2)(h) of the Liquor Licence Act provides that an applicant is entitled to be issued a license to sell liquor except if the license is not in the public interest having regard to the needs and wishes of the residents of the municipality in which the premises are located;

 

AND WHEREAS Section 7.1 of Ontario Regulation 719, under the Liquor Licence Act, provides that “the board of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario shall consider a resolution of the council of the municipality, in which are located the premises for which a person makes an application to sell liquor or holds a license to sell liquor, as proof of the needs and wishes of the residents of the municipality for the purposes of clause 6(2) (h) of the Act”;

 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT Council petition the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario to indicate that it approves of the operation as a restaurant but to insure that it does not operate as a bar, the following restrictions be imposed:

1-                  Liquor may not be served prior to 5:00 p.m.

2-                  Liquor may not be served after 11:00 p.m.

3-                  No alcohol may be consumed outside (on a patio or otherwise).
