Passed    Motion To: WHEREAS Staff recommended refusal of the application to demolish 234 O’Connor, a property designated under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act; and the issuance of a heritage permit under the Act; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Planning Committee recommend Council approve the application to demolish 234 O’Connor, subject to the following conditions: 1. At their sole expense, the Owner shall design, construct and maintain a privately owned public park space at the property known municipally as 234 O’Connor Street; 2. The design and construction of the park shall be finalized in collaboration with staff, and shall be built to City standards and specifications, including any required environmental site remediation, all to the satisfaction of the General Manager, Planning, Infrastructure and Economic Development Department; 3. The Owner shall pay one hundred percent securities to the City for the value of the design and construction of the park, with the securities to be released once these works are completed; 4. That park space shall be publically accessible until such time that a building permit has been issued for the new construction on the site; 5. The Owner agrees that to the discretion of the General Manager, Planning, Infrastructure and Economic Development Department, a replacement building must be substantially completed within five years from the date of this approval and in default thereof, the City Clerk shall enter on the collector’s roll the sum of $5,000 for the residential dwelling to be demolished; 6. The registered Owner shall enter into an agreement with the City of Ottawa to include the foregoing conditions, to the satisfaction of the City Clerk and Solicitor, and pay all costs associated with the registration of said agreement. At such time as a building permit is issued to redevelop the site and the replacement building is in place, the Agreement will become null and void and will be released upon request of the Owner. The Owner shall pay all costs associated with the release of the agreement; 7. The Owner agrees that a demolition permit will not be issued, and the building cannot be demolished, until such time that the agreement referenced herein has been executed and registered on title; 8.
