Passed    Motion To: WHEREAS Report ACS2018-PIE-EDP-0016 recommends zoning changes that prohibit dwelling units with more than four bedrooms and imposes minimum requirements for garbage management, including a provision requiring that a garbage storage area must be located within the principal building or an accessory building located in the rear yard; and WHEREAS the Sandy Hill community is committed to preserving its neighbourhood character, has demonstrated its commitment to engagement by forming the Town and Gown Committee with key partners (City of Ottawa, University of Ottawa and Councillor Fleury) and whose vision is to be a community that takes pride in their neighborhood; enjoys and contributes toward a high quality of living; and sees the value and importance in building and fostering a vibrant and dynamic urban neighbourhood; and WHEREAS Ward 12 has 24.6 per cent of the total calls to By-law and Regulatory Services for property standards complaints, which is a significant drain on City resources and affects the livability of the community; and WHEREAS the compounding effects of the existing oversized dwelling units (bunkhouses) in Sandy Hill has created significant operational waste management and by-law enforcement issues and has had direct impacts on the livability for neighbours of these units; and WHEREAS the Sandy Hill community is undertaking the Solid Waste Standards Initiative Pilot Project regarding the storage and management of garbage on residential properties with units containing excessive numbers of bedrooms in Sandy Hill in order to try and address the increase in by-law calls related to garbage; and WHEREAS new development in Sandy Hill will align with the strategies of the R4 zoning review to mitigate the negative effects related to waste management storage. THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that waste be entirely managed within the principal building in Sandy Hill and that the following change be made to the staff report: That Document 2 (Details of Proposed Zoning), Recommendation 5 be amended by adding language to provision 1)(c) similar in effect to the following: (iv) Notwithstanding (i)(2) above, in Area A defined by Schedule B of By-Law No. 2016-271 (Sandy Hill – Site Plan Control), the garbage storage area must be located only within the principal building. BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that there be no further notice pursuant to Subsection 34 (17) of the Planning Act.

Passed    Motion To: WHEREAS Report ACS2018-PIE-EDP-0016 recommends zoning changes that impose requirements for garbage management, including storage in either the principal building or an accessory building, and pathways from the garbage storage area to the curb unobstructed by any grade change; and WHEREAS a development application for a low-rise apartment dwelling comprising seven two- and three-bedroom units at 368 Chapel Street was submitted in January 2017, prior to publication of draft recommendations of the R4 Zoning Review in March 2017, and delayed due to Committee of Adjustment and Ontario Municipal Board proceedings; and WHEREAS the settlement of the OMB appeal for 368 Chapel Street includes a condition requiring garbage storage to be located inside the principal building and not in an accessory building; and WHEREAS all floors in the proposed development at 368 Chapel Street are either up or down stairs relative to grade; and THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the following change be made to the staff report: That Document 2 (Details of the Recommended Zoning), be amended by adding the following as Recommendation 12): 12) Amend Section 9 (Transitions) by adding wording similar in effect to the following as 9(X) (X) The requirement under clause 5(1)(a)(iii)that the required "path for the movement of garbage containers... be uninterrupted by any ... grade change that would impede the movement of a wheeled garbage container" does not serve to prevent the issuance of a permit at 368 Chapel Street this subsection is repealed in its entirety on June 13, 2020. BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT there be no further notice pursuant to Section 34 (17) of the Planning Act.

Passed    Motion To: WHEREAS Interim control bylaws 2017-245 and 2017-278 have provided significant protection to core neighbourhoods through the implementation of temporary restrictions on the size of units and bedroom count in all infill developments; and WHEREAS the neighbourhoods identified in the ICB continue to experience development pressure from the targeting of single detached-dwellings with the intent of maximizing bedroom counts by sub-dividing existing spaces or developing basements to bedrooms; and WHEREAS the City of Ottawa’s R4 and Multi-unit Residential Zoning Review aims to implement measures to address overbuilding in multi-unit residential buildings but permits eight (8) bedrooms in single detached-dwellings; and WHEREAS Phase II of the City of Ottawa’s R4 and Multi-unit Residential Zoning Review will continue to refine and expand on the Phase I policy framework; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Council direct the Planning Department to conduct a monitoring exercise as part of the R4 Phase 2 in conjunction with Building Code Services and in collaboration with other City departments, including Emergency and Protective Services, to evaluate the measures implemented through the Phase 1 R4 policies in addressing Council’s intent to regulate excessive bedroom counts in residential dwellings, particularly with respect to oversize dwelling units in detached units, and recommend any technical amendments as necessary to Planning Committee in Q2 2019; and BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that if the monitoring findings indicate that Phase I R4 policies are not controlling excessive bedroom count infill development in single detached dwellings, that amendments to Phase I R4 policies will be sought to better address this form of undesirable intensification; and BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT there be no further notice pursuant to Section 34 (17) of the Planning Act.
