Councillor Di Ciano’s International Design Competition – Westwood Theater Lands

Posted in Uncategorized

International Design Competition for a New Etobicoke Civic Centre
It was standing room only in the Council Chambers at Etobicoke Civic Centre as Councillor Di Ciano, residents, City of Toronto Staff, Build Toronto and members of the Architect and Design community came out to view the world class designs of the 4 shortlisted Firms that were displayed for the Westwood Lands International Design Competition.  

Councillor Justin Di Ciano shared his vision for 6 Points during the 2014 election. It was impossible to re-visit the road and development plans which were all approved after a ten year long exercise, however, the architecture and design could be world class.  Along with a new 2 acre park that was never in the plan, Councillor Di Ciano is pleased that his colleagues at City Council supported his direction to Build Toronto, in collaboration with the City of Toronto Planning and Real Estate Services, to undertake a design competition for the new Etobicoke Civic Centre proposed to be relocated to the former Westwood Theatre Lands.

Local Appeal Body Update

Local Appeal Body Update

On March 29, 2017, City Council passed Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 142 creating the Toronto

Local Appeal Body with an effective date of May 3, 2017.

What does this mean?

Starting May 3, 2017, most appeals of Toronto Committee of Adjustment decisions will be dealt with by the Toronto Local Appeal Body (TLAB) instead of the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB).

What happens to Committee of Adjustment Appeals starting May 3, 2017?

All appeals are still to be filed with the Manager & Deputy-Secretary Treasurer, Committee of Adjustment and must be filed within the appeal period on the Notice of Decision.

Appeals filed before May 3, 2017 will stay with the OMB.

Appeals filed on or after May 3, 2017 will go to the TLAB unless:

  • the decision was already appealed before May 3, 2017; or
  • there is a related appeal to the OMB for the same matter. A related appeal is an appeal under section 114 of the City of Toronto Act, under sections 17, 22, 34, 36, 38, 41 or 51 of the Planning Act or under a regulation made under section 70.2 of the Planning Act.

Where can I learn more about where and how to file my appeal?

If you are planning to appeal a decision from the Committee of Adjustment, or are looking for a general overview of the TLAB, the Public Guide is a good place to start.

To learn if a decision has already been appealed before May 3, 2017, please contact the Committee of Adjustment Case Manager for the matter.

To learn if there is a related appeal to the OMB for the same matter, search community planning applications in the Application Information Centre and contact the assigned planner if necessary.

More details are available on the Toronto Local Appeal Body website.
