    The motion by Chair Giambrone carried.
       
    b) Sheppard East LRT - Request for Additional Stop at Settlers Road

    Commissioner Saundercook moved that a stop at Settlers Road be included on the Sheppard East LRT line and that staff consider eliminating another stop on the line that does not have the same growth potential.

    The motion by Commissioner Saundercook lost.

    Commissioner Moeser moved approval of the recommendation in the staff report, as listed below:

    “It is recommended that The Commission endorse the staff position that, while it might be physically possible to construct an additional stop on the Sheppard East LRT line at Settlers Road, such an additional stop should not be built.  The reasons for this are:

    • As with all Transit City LRT Lines, the stop-spacing on the new Sheppard East LRT line will be wider -- in this case, averaging 470 metres -- and this wider stop-spacing is designed to allow for higher travel speeds than other surface routes in Toronto, while still providing convenient local access for customers walking to and from the stops;
    • An additional stop at SETTLERS road would be only 270 metres east of the LRT stop at Consumers Road;
    • Settlers Road is close to where the Sheppard East LRT Will connect with the Sheppard Subway, so there will be more people on the vehicles here than anywhere else on the line, making this the worst location to create unnecessarily close stop spacing which would increase peoples’ travel times;
    • Without a stop at Settlers Road, This Area Will Have One Of The Longest Distances Between Stops On The Sheppard East LRT -- 690 Metres -- however, customers will still be within a reasonable walking distance of the LRT stops at Consumers Road and Victoria Park Avenue; and
    • When the Sheppard East LRT line is open, the 169 Huntingwood and 167/167a Pharmacy North bus routes will continue to operate to and from Don Mills station on this section of Sheppard Avenue East during peak and midday periods, and they will continue to serve the existing stops at Settlers road”.

    The motion by Commissioner Moeser carried.

    c) Lake Shore Boulevard Streetcar Service – Follow-up Report

    Chair Giambrone moved that the Commission approve the recommendation contained in the staff report, as listed below:

    “It is recommended that the Commission:

    1. Note that the Costs and feasibility of operating revised streetcar services on Lake Shore Boulevard are detailed in this report; and
    2. Forward this report to councillors, Grimes, Milczyn, Saundercook, Perks, Giambrone, Vaughan, Rae, Mcconnell, Fletcher, Bussin, and Ashton and Deputy Mayor Pantalone; and the lakeshore planning council”.

    The motion by Chair Giambrone carried.

    Vice-Chair Mihevc moved that the Lakeshore Boulevard streetcar service matter be referred to staff for consideration during the 2011 budget process.

    The motion by Vice-Chair Mihevc carried.

    Commissioner Milczyn moved that TTC staff consult with City Transportation Staff on the possibility of constructing a portion of the civil works related to roads, curbs, sidewalks and utilities required for the Parklawn Loop in conjunction with road construction this year, and further authorize The Chair and Vice-Chair to approve any reallocation of funds required for this.

    The motion by Commissioner Milczyn carried.

    Commissioner Moeser moved that the Chief General Manager be authorized within his authority spending level of $100,000.00 to approve any pro-active work considered appropriate for the proposed Park Lawn Loop.

    The motion by Commissioner Moeser carried.

  15. Other Business
  16. a) Fire Ventilation Upgrade Project - Second Exit - Release Confidential Conceptual Layouts - Donlands and Greenwood Stations - Contracts D6-3 and D6-4

    Chair Giambrone moved that this item be referred to the next commission meeting and staff be requested to bring back the policy with reference to the TTC bus procurement policies on Canadian content reflected in section 4.6.

    The motion by Chair Giambrone carried.
