Supplementary questions from Ruth Grier, as follow-up to Peter Riedel’s quiz question regarding Humber Bay Shores

Update

A July 7, 2016 post is entitled:

On July 12, 2016 Toronto City Council Agenda: Investigation Report Regarding Conduct of Ward 6 Councillor Mark Grimes

[End of update]

 

As  follow-up to the quiz question regarding Humber Bay Shores posed by Peter Riedel, Ruth Grier has added the following questions.

Supplementary questions:

How did a Secondary Plan that contemplated a total of 3,000 units in a mixed used designation become a high rise enclave of over twice that number of units?

Why is a 62 storey condo development called Eau du Soleil advertising units on land that is designated Private Open Space but was always supposed to be purchased for parkland with the “cash in lieu” of parkland payments by developers?

How much money has the City obtained from cash in lieu payments from the motel strip and the Parklawn Road developments?

Where is that money and how has it been spent?

Under Section 37 of Planning Act a development can be granted density over and above those allowed by the Official Plan and in exchange they give cash for community improvements – how much Sect. 37 cash has been obtained from the motel strip and how has it been spent?   The attachment below gives examples of some benefits to Ward 6 but it would be good to have a larger picture!
