The Cressy Courier Jan 23- Addressing our City's Shelter Crisis, King Street Pilot Updates, and More!

Dear friend, 

The New Year is now well underway at City Hall and we're working hard to continue to build our communities, and a fairer and more liveable city. 

Below, you'll find an update on the 2018 Budget. Again this year, the budget doesn't recommend the investments needed to truly make our city better. The proposed budget does not increase spending on programs based on population growth – and we know all too well in Ward 20 that our population is growing rapidly, along with the need for services in our communities. What does this mean? Our population is growing, but we're not spending more on the services we all rely on – so, we're actually spending less. Read more on the budget in the update below.

We're also working hard to ensure more responsible and manageable development, address our city's shelter crisis, support small business, revitalize our green spaces and more – you'll find updates on that critical work below.

As always, please get in touch with my office any time with any questions or concerns about you read below, or anything else.

I look forward to seeing you around the neighbourhood.

Take care,

Joe


Addressing our City’s Shelter Crisis

Over the past number of weeks, you may have seen stories about our city's growing homelessness crisis. Ensuring access to safe and affordable housing for all is one of my most critical priorities. As we continue to work towards this goal, properly resourcing our shelter system to care for our most vulnerable community members is paramount. This is a year-round challenge – and over the last 3 years, we've worked hard together to welcome the services and supports for those experiencing homelessness to Ward 20. However, the extreme cold exacerbates the situation even further.

This past Tuesday, after weeks of work with Councillors Wong-Tam and Fletcher, we released an open letter, with support from Mayor Tory and others, on our city's shelter crisis and the urgent actions we need to take to ensure we have a system where no one is left out in the cold, including ensuring we have the capacity in the system that we need, keeping our emergency winter respite system open past the April 15 closing date, asking the Provincial government to provide desperately needed primary health and mental health services in our shelter system, and more.

At Community Development and Recreation Committee on Wednesday, these requests were moved and supported by Committee, along with additional requests regarding the development of drop-in standards, asking the Federal Government to keep the Moss Park Armoury open as emergency shelter longer, and more. The entire matter will now be considered by City Council at the end of January. In addition, City Council will consider my request to make it easier for the city to open shelters throughout our City this coming May.

I will continue to work daily to ensure we are doing everything we can to address our city’s growing crisis. Please stay tuned for further updates in the coming weeks.


King Street Transit Pilot - Update

King St pilot

The King Street Transit Pilot is about moving people better on King Street, and making the street work for everyone. Working together, we're able to make improvements as we go to continue to build a street that works for all.

Our bold move to improve King Street, the year-long King Street Transit Pilot, is nine weeks old. The second round of data, collected during the month of December, is now available. We are continuing to see that streetcars are more reliable, travel time is down, and vehicular impacts have been minimal. We've received transit ridership counts from the TTC, and we now know that there are 25% more riders on the King Streetcar not than before the pilot - an astonishingly fast increase. Next month, we'll begin receiving data on pedestrian counts, vehicle volumes, and economic impact point-of-sale data. Click here for full details on all the data that has been released so far. Updated data and additional metrics will be published every month during the Pilot.

Transit Ridership up 25% on King

Confirming what we have been hearing from streetcar riders, counts conducted by the TTC showed more people were riding the streetcars almost immediately after the Pilot started. In late November, peak rush hour ridership was up 25%, measured eastbound at Spadina Avenue in the morning. This is a positive but very surprisingly rapid change. The fact that so many more people are choosing to ride the streetcar on King Street is the clearest indicator demonstrating that the King Street Pilot is a major and meaningful improvement for riders.

As a consequence of the how quickly and dramatically the number of riders went up, the TTC is providing about 25% more capacity on King Street than at the beginning of the pilot, adding more streetcars as quickly as they are able. As the ridership count is a number of weeks old now, we all anticipate that even more streetcar service is needed in order to keep up with growing demand. The TTC is also taking the unprecedented step of re-allocating all streetcars from the Dundas and Carlton routes to run on King Street and carry the increasing number of riders. Those other routes will temporarily be served by buses.

I'm also strongly advocating to bring "two-hour transfers" to King Street as soon as possible, in advance of the city-wide launch later this year. This means that each time you pay your TTC fare, you would be able to hop on and off the streetcar as much as you like within two hours. By getting it on King Street now, transit riders could hop off the streetcar, grab a coffee or run an errand, and hop back on to continue to their final destination. The larger number of riders on King Street will have an easier time patronizing local businesses on King Street.

King Street is Open for Business

As I mentioned above, while transit is prioritized on King Street, it's important that the pilot project work for everyone. Over the last few weeks, I have heard concerns from some local business about the impact that the pilot is having on them, and we're working together to make changes and improvements to address them. We've launched Everyone is King, the public realm design competition to animate the new public spaces on King Street, and Eats on King, a promotion similar to Winterlicious that will launch on King in February. We've augmented the parking discount promotion - originally announced as a $5 discount in December - to 2 hours of free parking in the pilot area, on an unlimited basis. We've commissioned electronic signage to improve communication, and are continuing to review more improvements. The City is also collecting economic point of sale data, from a number of sources (Moneris, Mastercard, etc.) as part of the pilot, to ensure we are measuring the economic impact of the project on local business.

However, let me be clear as there has been some unfortunate and harmful misinformation in the news - King Street is open for business, every single block of King Street continues to be accessible to private vehicles and taxis, and visitors should not be afraid to come to King Street for dinner in the evening. It is deeply disappointing that some individuals are using every opportunity in front of a TV camera to make claims to the contrary, because it hurts our local businesses when visitors are made to believe that King Street is not an accessible destination.

I am working very closely with local business, Mayor Tory, and City staff to overcome this challenge of communication and perception in the wider City. This past Friday, the mayor and I met again with a number of local business leaders to discuss the matter and our next steps together. We identified ways that the City can help, including a dedicated Toronto-wide advertising campaign, and you should see more roll out in the coming days and weeks.

The City is also giving careful consideration to the proposals from some local businesses to modify the hours and exemptions in effect during the King Street Pilot. Our door is open to all proposals and changes of this nature have not been ruled out. But we must take care to ensure that we do not jeopardize the critical improvements that have already been achieved for public transit on King Street, and rather we must build on what is working to make the King Street Pilot an inclusive success.

Parking Promotion

As an incentive to visit King Street businesses, the City of Toronto is offering daily discount codes for use at Green P parking stalls and parking lots in the area. You can save up to $10 each day (about two hours of parking).

Please visit the project web page here for the daily code and a link to download the Green P app.

Click here to download a map of all the parking stalls and parking lots in the area where the discount code is valid.

Public Realm Transformation: Everyone is King

The City has launched the "Everyone is King" competition to solicit proposals for attractive curb lane public spaces on King Street for all to enjoy. Starting in the spring, you will see three kinds of public spaces along King Street in the Pilot area:

  1. Local businesses will have the first opportunity to use any adjacent public realm spaces. There has been lots of interest in creating expanded patios for people to dine outdoors, similar to what you would have seen during the Toronto International Film Festival in recent years.
  2. The City will be funding the design and construction of two high-quality, showcase parklets.
  3. In the remainder of the spaces, there will be dozens of creative, smaller-scale installations that may include tables and seating, games and other interactive features, and public art.

 

A "pilot project" involves relatively simple and low-cost changes that are intended to test out an idea. This means we have the flexibility and nimbleness to measure how it is working, week by week, and respond with refinements and other efforts to address any issues that might arise. A pilot project is not expected to be perfect when it is first implemented, and we built right into our plans that adjustments would be made along the way to optimize the pilot and make sure it is working for everyone. Many tweaks and improvements have already been implemented, and more are on the way. For more, please see my recent column in the Toronto Star.

Your feedback and comments to my office at councillor_cressy@toronto.ca and to the project team at kingstreetpilot@toronto.ca is important, along with the data we are collecting, for ensuring that we can make the King Street Pilot work for everyone. I appreciate hearing about your experience.


Mirvish Village - Affordable Housing Update

As we manage growth in our neighbourhoods, we know that we must ensure that this growth contributes to the vibrancy and livability of our community. As you may know, this was a critical focus for myself and Councillor Mike Layton in the review of the Mirvish Village Development Proposal, approved by Council in July 2017.

Affordability is central to a vibrant neighbourhood. Throughout the process, we maintained a commitment that the development would be 100% rental, but were also committed to supplying a significant number of affordable units in the development. By working closely with the Affordable Housing Office and the developer, we were able to secure 60 units of affordable housing (80% of market rate) at the time of approval, with a commitment to work towards 20% of the units in the development being affordable units.

We are delighted to announce that Phase 2 of the Affordable Housing Plan will be considered by Executive Committee next week. With the approval of Phase 2, and an additional 25 affordable units, we have confirmed that 10% of the entire development will be affordable, which is a crucial step forward.

We now continue to work to achieve the 20% overall target.


Supporting Small Business - Moving Forward

Over the last year, I have heard from many small businesses in our community that increasing economic pressures in many neighbourhoods are making it more and more difficult for small and independent businesses to survive. From local grocers and raw food vendors in Kensington Market, to restaurants across our Ward, many have been sounding the alarm regarding the impact large and unexpected property tax increases can have on their ability to stay afloat.

After working closely with City Finance staff to try and find solutions to the growing problem, I am delighted that they have come forward with a recommendation to cap annual tax increases on commercial properties as an effort to support local business across our city. The recommendation calls for a maximum possible increase of 10% of the prior year’s taxes on an annual basis - rather than an undetermined, and often prohibitive amount, for some businesses.

Progressive taxation is a critical part of how our city funds and supports the services we all rely on. At the same time, our taxation system should be fair for all, including the local business that make our communities and economy thrive.

The capping recommendation will be considered by Executive Committee next week, and City Council at the end of January.


The Bentway - Now Open!

On January 6th, I was delighted to join Councillor Mike Layton, Judy and Will Matthews, and countless community members to officially open The Bentway Skating Trail!. The first part of this new and exciting project to open to the public, the skating trail underneath the Gardiner is already receiving raving reviews.

The Bentway is an exciting partnership that is creating a new public landscape under the section of the Gardiner Expressway, from Strachan to Spadina. The project has already begun to transform more than 10 acres into vibrant community spaces that will host community programming, a 1.75 kilometre multi-use trail, a pedestrian and cycling bridge over Fort York Boulevard, and more.

Phase One of the project includes the area between Shaw and Bathurst, with future phases continuing east into Ward 20. However, in December 2017, I was pleased to announce new funding from Ward 20 Section 42 funds, to extend Phase One into our community.


Provincial Inclusionary Zoning - Proposed Regulations

As you've no doubt heard me say, ensuring access to safe and affordable housing is a critical priority of mine throughout all our work together. We work hard through countless development proposals to try and secure funds for affordable housing units, and as often as we can, new affordable housing units provided within developments themselves. However, without tools to require affordable housing in each and every development, our ability to secure the number of affordable units we need is severely limited.

For years, the City of Toronto like countless other municipalities has been asking the Provincial Government, who has jurisdiction over housing and development policy generally, to introduce the powers and rules needed to implement Inclusionary Zoning. This would give municipalities the ability to require the building of affordable housing in developments. When we learned the province would be introducing these rules, we were thrilled. However, the proposed regulations fall far short of what we need, and will not allow us to address the affordability crisis in our city.

The Provincial proposal would require cities to contribute funds to developers for the delivery of these units, rather than requiring that developers be responsible for their delivery - funds that would come from the fees they pay for development. These fees are currently required, and used, to build desperately needed infrastructure that comes with increases in density - transit, parks and greenspaces, community centres, child care, and more. These inclusionary zoning proposals would further stretch the funds we have now to accommodate new growth, making it next to impossible to build the infrastructure and affordable housing our communities really need. This, along with a cap of only 5% of the new of affordable units that should be delivered, and the application of the regulations to condominiums and not rental buildings and more, are reasons that the Provincial regulations fall far short of where they need to be.

The Planning and Growth Management Committee has called a special meeting to consider the proposals, and to discuss the City's feedback to the Province. You can find more information on that meeting, and how to share your comments, here.

I would also urge you to contact your local MPP and share your thoughts on these proposals.


Ward 20 - Budget Townhall

Come to my Ward 20 Budget Town Hall on Monday January 29th, 6:30pm, at Scadding Court Community Centre.  Again this year, we are holding a joint town hall with Councillor Layton and our neighbours in Ward 19. Hear more information about what this budget means for our neighbourhoods, how we can make our city better for all our friends and neighbours, and share your thoughts with me before Council votes on the Budget in February.

Enter through the main doors 

Again this year, the 2018 budget doesn't recommend the investments needed to truly make our city better. At the same time, the proposed budget does not increase spending on programs based on population growth – and we know all too well in Ward 20 that our population is growing rapidly, along with the need for services in our communities. What does this mean? Our population is growing, but we're not spending more on the services we all rely on – so, we're actually spending less.

Toronto Island Bird Sanctuary - Approved by Committee

Our Waterfront - home to tens of thousands of our neighbours - is a destination for Torontonians, and millions of visitors alike, and the Toronto Islands are a jewel within our Waterfront community. In addition to being home to hundreds of residents, they represent a significant destination for residents and visitors from across our City, providing a way to enjoy and respect the natural environment, mere minutes from downtown. The Toronto Islands are a sanctuary for all of us.

By their very nature, they also create a significant natural habitat for many plant and animal species. Many areas of the Islands have been designated Areas of Natural and Scientific Interest by the Ministry of Natural Resources, demonstrating their high value for conservation, study and education. Portions of Muggs Island, Hanlan's Beach and Centre Island are also designated as Environmentally Significant Areas by the Ministry, a designation for areas of particular significance and sensitivity, and which require additional protection to preserve their environmental qualities and significance.

At City Council this past December, I moved a motion - seconded by Councillor Paula Fletcher - to ask the Federal Government to review the Toronto Islands for designation as a Bird Sanctuary. This request was referred for consideration by the Parks and Environment Committee, who yesterday, unanimously supported the request. The request now moves to City Council for consideration at the end of January.

Thank you to the dedicated residents and community groups who have been working to protect our Island and Waterfront Habitat for so many years.


Schoolyard Revitalization at Kensington Community School

I am thrilled to announce that at the December City Council meeting, my motion to allocate Section 37 community benefit funds to the Toronto District School Board for improvements to the Kensington Community School grounds was passed. The Section 37 funds were secured through the development at 297 College St, and will allocate $80,000 towards the Kensington Community School grounds to allow them to enhance their green space and expand public access.

Work on the schoolyard has already begun and will include new trees, additional planters, seating, landscape features, and more. As part of these improvements to the grounds, public access outside of school hours will be secured for the local neighbourhood.

I look forward to celebrating the completion of the revitalization later this year with the community.

Information Session - New Public School in CityPlace

Two new schools, a childcare facility, and a community recreation centre are under construction in CityPlace right now, opening for the school year starting in fall 2019. These kinds of facilities and services are very important for supporting healthy, inclusive, liveable communities, and I talk to many CityPlace residents who are eagerly looking forward to when it is open.

On Wednesday, January 31, join TDSB School Trustee Ausma Malik for an information session about the new Jean Lumb Public School, which will serve 550 students from Kindergarten to Grade 8, as well as current local school options for the neighbourhood and special programs offered by TDSB.

New Waterfront Parks and Public Spaces

It was great to see so many new and familiar faces at the public meeting yesterday evening at Harbourfront Centre to discuss the exciting opportunities for two parcels of underused public land on our waterfront: the surface parking lot at 318 Queens Quay (by Rees Street) and the land beneath the former York Street loop off-ramp. If you weren't able to join us, or if you have any additional comments that you want to share, please check out our online survey "How to Make a Great Park."

Last year, I held a visioning open house for 318 Queens Quay to talk about our collective ambitions for this space. One of the main themes of the comments I heard was the need for a public space that works just as well in the wintertime as during warmer weather. Many people observed that while the waterfront is a very good place to live and visit most of the year, it could use more animation and interest in the winter months.

Since then, we have been working behind the scenes to cement a partnership agreement between the City of Toronto and Waterfront Toronto to collaborate on the design and construction of 318 Queens Quay as well as the York off-ramp park. Sharing the task means that we can bring greater resources and expertise to the projects, and also ensures that the two designs are complementary. And I am very pleased to report that the proposed 2018 Budget now includes about $11 million for each of the projects.

Yesterday's meeting was just the first step toward making these two new spaces spectacular, unique and full of new year-round experiences. To sign up for e-mail updates about future public meetings and other opportunities to stay engaged, please email info@waterfrontoronto.ca.


Monsignor Fraser Greening Project

As an advocate for increased and enhanced green spaces throughout Ward 20, I am excited to continue the work on improving the Monsignor Fraser parking lot to facilitate expanded student programming and additional community green space for Seaton Village.

Over the past number of months, I have been working closely with the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB), Trustee Jo-Ann Davis, Parks, Forestry & Recreation staff, and the Seaton Village Residents' Association (SVRA) to revitalize this underutilized space into a brand new community green space. I am delighted that we were able to work hard to secure city-funding to make this project a reality - with confirmed funding and a shared-use agreement between the TCDSB and the City of Toronto, we met with the community on January 9th to present the initial design and solicit feedback.

Staff will be reviewing the feedback, fine-tuning the design and posting it online for comment before moving to prepare the construction drawings and schedule construction. Currently, staff are looking at beginning construction in July with a three-month construction timeline.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this project happen and I look forward to updating everyone in the neighbourhood about the final design and coming construction.


Rail Deck Park - City Planning and Community Council Oppose the Private Development Proposal

As our community grows, we must focus on building neighbourhoods and not just condo towers – that's why we've been working hard together to make critical and worthwhile investments in community facilities in Ward 20, and continuing efforts to secure much-needed parkland downtown. This past December, City Council endorsed moving ahead on Rail Deck Park, our bold and ambitious plan to build a signature park in the downtown, and to begin the next stage of work this year. City Council also approved an Official Plan Amendment that formally re-designates the space above the rail corridor as parkland. Please visit www.toronto.ca/raildeckpark to learn more.

After the plans for Rail Deck Park were first announced, the City of Toronto received a private application to change the Official Plan to allow a large new development above the rail corridor, including a parking structure for 1,225 vehicles and 9 buildings up to 59 storeys tall. To be very clear, I completely oppose any private development over the rail corridor because it would diminish the size and usefulness of Rail Deck Park. We have plenty of other sites downtown for more towers, but there are no other sites for a new 21-acre downtown park.

The Ontario Planning Act legally requires the City to review, hold public meetings, and make a decision on every private development application, no matter how obviously inappropriate it is, which is why we held a public meeting on the proposal in September and now City staff have completed a final report on which City Council will vote at the end of this month. The report recommends refusal of the private development proposal and Community Council has taken the same position unanimously. I am confident that City Council will vote to refuse the ridiculous and inappropriate proposal as well.


Home Energy Loan Program

HELP Program

Tired of a cold, drafty home and high energy bills - HELP is here!
Through the City of Toronto's Home Energy Loan Program (HELP), you can get a low-interest loan to cover the cost of a new high-efficiency furnace, new windows, doors, insulation and more. And if you want to go the extra mile, the loan can also cover the cost of solar rooftop panels, solar hot water heaters, and geothermal heating and cooling!

The great thing about Toronto's Home Energy Loan Program, is that at the same time that you make your home more comfortable and reduce your energy bills, you'll also be reducing the emissions that contribute to climate change.

Low-interest rates and great terms

In addition to offering low-interest rates (starting at 2%), and repayment terms of up to 15 years, you can repay the loan at any time without penalty. And if you sell your home and don't want to pay off the loan, the new homeowner can assume the payments. Sound too good to be true? It's not!

Save energy, money and more!
The results are impressive. On average, HELP participants:

  • reduce their home energy use by 30%;
  • save over $560 per year on their energy bills; and
  • receive additional incentives of up to $2,250 from utility companies such as Enbridge Gas and IESO.

You can get a loan of up to $75,000 for your improvements. The process begins with an easy online application. The HELP team will then connect you with a Registered Energy Advisor, help you access the incentives provided by the utility companies, and do what they can to make the process smooth and seamless.

The City's HELP team is available to support you throughout the process. Ready to get started? Have a few questions? We'd love to hear from you. Contact us at 416-392-1826 or learn more at toronto.ca/home-energy-loan.


Central Tech Stadium - Community Hours

The Central Tech Stadium holds regular community hours, as part of the settlement reached in 2015 at the Ontario Municipal Board. These are hours where the stadium is open to the community to use, outside of school hours, free of charge. The track is also available for community use at different times of the day, outside of school hours.

Helpful community updates, including information on track availability are available on the Central Tech Stadium website here.


Toronto Police Service Organizational Culture Community Consultations

The Toronto Police Service (TPS) is modernizing its policing model, as described in The Way Forward Action Plan. Part of that effort includes assessing the Service’s organizational culture –the values, beliefs and behaviours that shape how the Toronto Police Service members do their work and interact with the community. 

The Toronto Police Service is completing this assessment to understand the current organizational culture, and identify strengths and potential areas of change. The Service has hired MNP, a Canadian professional services firm, to complete the organizational culture assessment. An important part of this initiative is to gather input from the public.  This is being done through a series of eight (8) facilitated roundtable discussions in locations across the City, and an online survey to collect perspective on the current organizational culture of the TPS.

To participate in an online survey please use the following link: http://sgiz.mobi/s3/TPS-Organizational-Culture-Survey
