Passed    Motion To: That the recommendations arising from the Finance and Economic Development Committee with respect to the staff report entitled, “City of Ottawa Participation in the OLG RFP Process” be replaced by the following: 1. That City Council refer the following motion to a Special Meeting of the Finance and Economic Development Committee on the City of Ottawa Participation in the OLG RFP Process to be held on August 26, 2013, for consideration and recommendation to Council at its meeting of August 28, 2013: WHEREAS the Province of Ontario and the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) have provided multiple gaming zones within the same municipal jurisdiction in other parts of the province, including the cities of Toronto and Niagara Falls; and WHEREAS, although the OLG informed the Mayor on May 2, 2013 that “only one gaming site would be permitted within each zone” and the OLG’s “current mandate does not address satellite sites”, the OLG did not address the issue of providing a separate gaming zone solely for the Rideau Carleton Raceway area; and WHEREAS there are reasons for Ottawa to have two gaming zones with separate Request for Proposal (RFP) processes under the OLG’s Modernization of Lottery and Gaming process; and WHEREAS Ottawa City Council remains committed to the continuation of the Rideau Carleton Raceway as a gaming facility, as evidenced by the following resolution, approved by City Council on March 10, 2011: City Council communicate its support in principle of the petition to the Province of Ontario by the Rideau Carleton Raceway to direct the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) to permit gaming tables at the Raceway as a two-year pilot project, subject to any required rezoning and any relevant legislation such as the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation Act, 1999 and subject to the municipality receiving a flat 5% commission on slot revenues upon the introduction of gaming tables at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. And the following motion, approved by Council on October 10, 2012: That the City of Ottawa strongly encourages the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation establish a Request for Proposal process that is fair, transparent, open and competitive and which provides all proponents, including the Rideau Carleton Raceway, an opportunity to compete within a level playing field; and That the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation consider providing an opportunity for the Rideau Carleton Raceway to be pre-qualified to take part in the final bidding process, given their strong record of success in the Ottawa region; and WHEREAS, despite the OLG’s referenced ‘Gravity Model’, City Council believes that all private sector proponents should be given the opportunity to determine and demonstrate if and how gaming facilities can exist at the Rideau Carleton Raceway as well as at another location in the Ottawa area; and WHEREAS City Council wishes to ensure that all proponents are given an opportunity to present their proposals to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation’s Request for Proposal process; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Finance and Economic Development Committee recommends that City Council approve the following: ; and c. That, should the Province of Ontario and the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation deny City Council’s request for a separate gaming zone for the Rideau Carleton Raceway, City Council communicate its support for the retention of the existing slots facility at the Rideau Carleton Raceway, with the current allocation of 1250 slots and the approved expansion for 21 gaming tables; and 2. That City Council defer consideration of the following recommendations until such time as City Council addresses the Report arising from the Special Meeting of the Finance and Economic Development Committee to be held on August 26, 2013: a. That City Council approve that the proponent for any new or expanded gaming facility at the Rideau Carleton Raceway will: i. Be required to undertake a comprehensive Community Transportation Study (CTS) to assess the impacts to the adjacent community and propose mitigation measures as necessary as part of any potential development application for a new or expanded gaming facility, including the creation of a primary entrance to the facility from Bank Street; and ii. Fund the following as part of any potential development application: 1. Any costs to accelerate any proposed Transportation Master Plan or any other projects that are identified and deemed appropriate as a result of the CTS, including the potential timing of the O-Train extension as well as road widening projects such as Bank, Albion (south of Lester), Lester, Earl Armstrong, and the Airport Parkway; and 2. The cost to implement any Area Traffic Management plan, for Blossom Park and other potentially impacted neighbourhoods, required as a result of the Community Traffic Impact Study; and 3. The cost to maintain a free shuttle service to the Rideau Carleton Raceway from the nearest major transit hub with no decrease from the highest level of service provided in 2013; and 4. That the proponents of any proposed gaming facility be required to develop a transit service plan as part of their development application and that staff be directed to review the proposed transit service plan and review possible funding methods, including the potential for a targeted expansion of the Urban Transit Area, and report the results of their review to the Transit Commission and/or the appropriate Standing Committee and Council, as appropriate; and; b. That City Council direct staff to begin an analysis of potential economic benefits and impacts and potential social impacts related to an expanded gaming facility at Rideau Carleton Raceway and report back to the Finance and Economic Development Committee and Council when it is complete.
