Summary

This report recommends that City Council state its intention to designate the property at 68 Daisy Avenue under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value.

The property contains the two-and-a-half storey, brick clad school building, completed in 1929 and additions completed in 1956 and 1963-4. Originally known as the Daisy Avenue Public School and now known as the Vincent Massey Childcare Centre, the property was included on the City of Toronto’s Heritage Register in 2006.

Following research and evaluation, staff have determined that the property at 68 Daisy Avenue meets Ontario Regulation 9/06, the provincial criteria prescribed for municipal designation under the Ontario Heritage Act. Properties on the Heritage Register will be conserved and maintained in accordance with Official Plan Heritage Policies. Designation enables City Council to review alterations to the site, enforce heritage property standards and maintenance, and refuse demolition.
Financial Impact

There are no financial implications resulting from the adoption of this report.
