Passed    Motion To: WHEREAS on March 12, 2018, William ‘Bill’ Teron, fondly known as the “Father of Kanata,” passed away at the age of 85; and WHEREAS Bill was a visionary, developer, designer and builder, philanthropist, arts lover, and senior public servant whose work and influence can be found throughout Ottawa; and WHEREAS Bill is particularly well-known for putting together a land holding of more than 3,000 acres to create a new satellite city in March Township in an area holding only a few farm houses. He designed a full City with Town Centre, places of employment, schools, churches, shopping areas and a Town Centre all incorporated within open space and connection to nature before the first home was constructed. His first housing community, Beaverbrook, set an example of a “garden city” that successfully integrated residential home design with the natural environment and served as fertile grounds for future communities, business incubation and civic growth; and WHEREAS Bill was also passionate about the power of community greenspaces, making a conscious decision that much of the land would remain in a natural state and this concept was fervently adopted by early residents who put the plan into practise after his company was taken over by others by protecting those natural areas; and WHEREAS, in addition to his development-related work, Bill was one of the founding trustees of the National Arts Centre and served as the Chair and President of the Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation at the request of Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau; and WHEREAS Bill received various awards and recognition in acknowledgment of his many contributions, including his appointment as an Officer of the Order of Canada, the Jane Jacobs Lifetime Achievement Award, a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, and Doctor of Laws honoris causa from Carleton University; and WHEREAS the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association has requested that the Kanata Town Centre Core Park, located at 6301 Campeau Drive, an area that Bill loved, be named in honour of Bill Teron; and WHEREAS the City’s Commemorative Naming Policy, approved by Council on July 24, 2002, outlines the criteria and process for commemoratively naming municipal streets, parks and facilities (or parts thereof), and provides for Council to assign a commemorative name by resolution, in keeping with its powers set out in the Municipal Act, 2001; and WHEREAS the name Bill Teron has been vetted through Emergency Services and does not pose any concerns with respect to name duplication; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that City Council approve that the Kanata Town Centre Core Park, located at 6301 Campeau Drive, be named “Parc Bill Teron Park”.
