The Motion was Carried.

4. Welcome to Port Stanley Signage - Correspondence received from Port Stanley Village Association respecting new "Welcome to Port Stanley" signage.

The Port Stanley Village Association worked with the Port Stanley BIA,and Lions to create funds to erect an attractive sign at the entrance to Port Stanley. This sign spearheaded by and designed by Andrew Hibbert was erected several months ago. It is impressive, beautiful and welcoming. This was a partnership by Port Stanley people and the MCE administration and staff. This partnership worked.

We would now like to replicate, in a fashion, an entry sign at the harbour entrance. Years ago a large ‘WELCOME TO PORT STANLEY’ sign was painted on one of the fuel/asphalt tanks at the entrance to the harbour. When the tanks were clad in insulating siding, this sign was covered over and disappeared. We would like to see a large sign, similar to the new entry one installed on the south side of the boathouse at the new boat launch area. Our partnership would go forward as follows:

  • 1. MCE staff would design, order and install this large (perhaps 5m x 2m) sign which simply says, in the style and colors of the new sign, ”Welcome to Port Stanley”
  • 2. PSVA would provide the following funding:
    • a. $814.00 from retained funds within the PSVA budget
    • b. Two PSVA directors have agreed to fund 10% each of the total price of this project (perhaps $150.00 each or $300.00 total).
    • c. Any excess funding, if any, would be provided by MCE

We believe this project to which we are committing approx. $1114.00 will show a welcoming presence to our waterborne visitors; local, regional and international. This partnership is in the best interest of the community which is sponsoring it. lf there is a desire to meet or make a presentation, we would be most happy to participate. Please let me know how this is received and what steps are next to further this partnership and obtain approval of this proposal.

A Motion by Councillor Carr and Seconded by Deputy Mayor Martyn that the Council of The Corporation of the Municipality of Central Elgin direct staff to prepare a report of designing, ordering, and installing a "Welcome To Port Stanley" Sign at the Harbour entrance. The Motion was Carried.

CEP 56-18 - Application for a Zoning By-law Amendment - Mike & Margaret Karda, 145 William Street

Background: - The applicants have applied to change the zoning on the subject lands from the current 0S3 to B1, which will reduce the parking requirement to a commercial standard. There are nearby municipal lots to accommodate additional parking needs. A public meeting was held on July 23rd, 2018 at which Council heard from a few residents from the area as well as written correspondence.

Council may recall from the initial planning report (CEP37-18 in the June 25th, 2018 agenda) that, in accordance with the OSS zone standards, around 14 parking spaces would be required. The applicants simply do not have room on the property to accommodate that requirement. it was determined through the consultation process that the B1 zone standards would require only 1 space per 50 square meters of floor area. That would result in only 3 spaces for the restaurant. Staff suggested a fourth space be dedicated for the upstairs apartment. The parking plan submitted by the applicants shows four spaces.

It is important to understand that this application is not about the use of the property as a restaurant. A restaurant is a permitted use in both the 0S3 zone and the B1 zone. This application is about which parking standard should apply. The applicants simply do not have the room to supply 14 parking spaces on the subject lands. They have shown that they can supply 4 spaces. Under the OS3 zone they would need to pay cash in lieu for the remaining 10 spaces required under that zone. This is a financial hardship that the applicants are hoping to avoid through this application.

At the public meeting concerns were raised regarding the proposed outdoor patio. These concerns were mainly with respect to noise and whether the patio could safely work given the limited area for vehicles to manoeuvre in the proposed parking area. Again, these are not zoning related matters as a restaurant is permitted under both the current 0S3 and the proposed B1 zones, and a restaurant could be permitted to have an outdoor patio as an accessory use. The patio is a site plan control matter. As pointed out by Mr. Leitch, the subject lands are subject to an existing site plan agreement that will need to be amended given the new property configuration. The merits of the outdoor patio’s proposed location will be assessed at that time. Nuisance noise concerns are most appropriately addressed through the Municipality’s noise by-law, and it would be unfair to prejudge the proposed use based on ongoing issues associated with another nearby operator.

Concerns were also raised regarding potential for pedestrian and vehicular conflicts with cars entering and exiting the subject lands. This concern is no different than for any of the driveways along William Street. In fact, the subject lands benefit from having around 40 feet of opening at the street frontage, which provides a wider range of view for vehicles exiting the property. This same configuration has been used for previous businesses located on the subject lands, and staff are not aware of reported issues associated with traffic movement in and out of the property.

It was commented that businesses should be made to meet the parking standards on their property, and that the parking being provided would not be enough for the restaurant, resulting in patrons seeking parking on the nearby local streets. The applicants are proposing to be able to meet the Municipality's standard of parking for the B1 zone. They simply do not have the physical space to meet the requirements of the 0S3 zone. it is recognized that on-street parking on some local streets in this area is limited, but it is available for anyone from the public to use, not just local residents. This is compounded by the fact that many local residents either do not have, or have insufficient off-street parking of their own. The Municipality has invested significantly in providing public parking in this area to assist with this reality and support the beach function and local businesses.

A Motion by Councillor Carr and Seconded by Councillor Roberts that Report CEP 56-18 Application for a Zoning By-law Amendment - Mike & Margaret Karda be received as information. The Motion was Carried.

CEP 58-18 - Application to Amend Township of Yarmouth By-law 1998 - Andrew Sloan, 11157 Highbury Ave.

Background: - The applicants applied to the Elgin County Land Division Committee (LDC) for a consent for the purposes of severing an existing farm market and accessory uses as an Agriculture- Related Use (LDC Application No. E103/17, see Report No. CEP O3.18 in the January 22, 2018 Agenda).

Through the decision of the consent, the applicants were advised that the Municipality will be seeking a condition that the retained lands will need to be rezoned to restrict the use of the severed lot to a retail farm market and uses accessory to the foregoing. The applicants have filed this application for a zoning by-law amendment to implement the condition.

A Motion by Councillor McNeil and Seconded by Councillor Carr that Report CEP 58-18 Application to Amend Township of Yarmouth By-law 1998 - Andrew Sloan be received; And that the Council of The Corporation of the Municipality of Central Elgin direct staff to prepare a site-specific draft amendment to the Zoning By-law to satisfy conditions of a severance on lands located at 11157 Highbury Ave., which may be legally described as Part of Lot 8, Concession 10, geographic Township of Yarmouth, now Municipality of Central Elgin; And further that a date for a public meeting be scheduled for September 24, 2018 at 7:10 p.m. in accordance with Ontario Regulation 545/06 as amended. The Motion was Carried.

PW 24-18 - East Road/Colborne Street Traffic Study

Background - As Council is aware, there has been increased development in the East Road Area over the past 10 years and there continues to be applications for future development for the remaining lands that are designated for residential development within the municipality's Official Plan. in addition to the proposed development the municipality is also contemplating the construction of a new fire hall on the municipally owned lands that lies west of the intersection of East Road and Sunset Road (south of Sunset Road).

Over the past couple of months municipal staff and county staff have met regarding the fire hall project and its potential impacts on East Road and Sunset Road, which are both Elgin County roads...or under the jurisdictional control of Elgin County. In addition, county and municipal staff have preconsulted with developers of lands that lie south of Hill St. and west of East Road regarding a new proposed residential development. As a result of this preconsulation meeting staff from the county and municipality believe that it would be prudent to work cooperatively to complete an overall traffic study for East Road as well as Colborne St. and determine how this development impacts the ’’village core” as well as East Road and Sunset Road.

Study: - Dillon Consulting was engaged by the municipality to complete a detailed traffic study for the William/George St., Carlow Road/Bridge St., Colborne St./Bridge St. intersections. Staff believe it would be beneficial to further engage Dillon Consulting to undertake the traffic study on East Road, Colborne St. and Sunset Road so that a holistic report could be prepared that looks at traffic volumes, turning movements and potential improvements and intersection locations for the major streets within Port Stanley. We would note that the physical data collection was undertaken on the Civic Holiday weekend so that peak volumes could be used for the forecasting of traffic volumes and the impacts of future development.

Financial Considerations: - The total cost of the study as proposed by Dillon Consulting is $22,300 exclusive of HST. The proponent of the new development on the west side of East Road has committed to contributing $3,000 towards the study to address intersection locations/configuration for their proposed development. This leaves a balance of $19,300 to be funded by the municipality. Staff would note that County and Central Elgin staff have met to discuss the work plan proposed by Dillon and both are in agreement with the scope of services provided. At a staff level it was determined that there is merit to the County and Central Elgin working cooperatively together as municipal partners on the project and equally funding the remaining $19,300. We would note that the County of Elgin does not have funding allocation for their share of the project but staff are prepared to seek County Council approval at their meeting on September 11th, 2018.

The undersigned would note that regardless of County of Elgin approving funding their share of the study, it would be prudent for Central Elgin to move forward with the study even if the entire $19,300 needed to be funded by the municipality. We believe it is prudent to have the study done to ensure that existing roads and intersections will not be adversely affected and that the integrity and functionality of East Road to convey traffic is maintained.

A Motion by Councillor Carr and Seconded by Councillor McNeil that the Council of the Corporation of the Municipality of Central Elgin receive report PW 24-18 - East Road/Colborne Street Traffic Study as information; And that Council approve engaging Dillon Consulting to complete a comprehensive traffic study on East Road and Colborne Streets at a total cost of $22,300 exclusive of HST; And further that the County of Elgin be requested to participate in the funding of the study to an upset limit of $9,500. The Motion was Carried.

PW 25-18 - Eastwood Subdivision Sidewalk

Background: - Recently concerns have been brought forward in regards to the condition of the concrete sidewalks placed in Eastwood Subdivision as part of the Sanitary Servicing Project in 2013- 2014. There has been some scaling of the concrete throughout parts of the subdivision that has progressively gotten worse since placement.

The Municipality had quality control done on the concrete at the time of placement and all testing showed the quality of the concrete was satisfactory. When the scaling first started to show in the spring of 2016 after the 2015 winter season, staff and AECOM met with Exp. the Geotechnical Consultant on the project to review the conditions.

The conclusion of the report was that scaling may be caused by overworking of the surface, broom finish applied too late and de-icing solution being applied in water soaked concrete or a combination of the three. Exp concluded that the sidewalks generally appear to be in satisfactory condition with light scaling defects and that a plan to make any repairs deemed necessary be proposed by the contractor.

All parties involved met on site to review the sidewalk subsequent to this report by Exp. It was determined that the contractor would replace all sidewalks that had medium to heavy scaling at their cost. Approximately 200m of Sidewalk was replaced on Centennial. As for sidewalks on Coulter, Bodkin, Lawton and Lois Streets, scaling was intermittent and light.

It should be noted that the Municipality carries a 2 year warranty on work through its contracts. Typically most Municipalities only carry a 1 year warranty. The warranty on work completed on Centennial, Lawton, Coulter (South of Lawton) and Bodkin expired in 2016 and work on the remainder expired in 2017.

Council may consider two options to address these complaints;

  • Option 1 — Do Nothing, make repairs through the annual sidewalk replacement program when the need arises. The scaling of the sidewalk presents no problems as to the functionality or safety of the sidewalk and repairs would only be done when and if they are in contravention of the Minimum Maintenance Standards, 0. Reg. 239/02
  • Option 2 — Remove and Replace the sidewalks — tender out the reconstruction of the concrete sidewalks at the Municipality's cost. The estimated cost to remove and replace all sidewalks in Eastwood placed between 2013 and 2014 would be $480,000.
A Motion was passed with Option 1 being selected at this time with only Councillor Winkworth opposed.

PW 26-18 - Eastwood Park Redevelopment Concepts Plans

Background: At the July 23rd, 2018 meeting of Council report PW—19—18 was received by Council and direction given respecting the amenities to be included in the concepts for the development of Eastwood Park.

As a result of that direction staff met with Landscape Architect Ron Kudys to discuss the project. Mr. Kudys took away this information as well as the detailed topographic survey that was completed by municipal staff and prepared 3 concept drawings for the new park. Staff would note that all three of the concepts include the amenities that were outlined in report PW—19-18. We would also note that staff have directed Mr. Koudys to include park benches as well as garbage receptacles locations on the preferred plan going forward. While all three concepts include the items requested, staff would have the following items for Council to consider when selecting a preferred plan. A Motion was passed with Option 1 being selected.
