Accessibility Advisory Committee Report dated March 4, 2019

Whereas Bill 174, adopted by the Province of Ontario in December 2017 includes School Bus Camera legislation;

And whereas as a result of adopting Bill 174, the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) is required to produce regulations within the Highway Traffic Act in order for municipalities to implement School Bus Stop-Arm technology;

And whereas it is imperative that the Province of Ontario expedite the process to implement these regulations to ensure children are safe when they board or exit a school bus;

Now therefore be it resolved that the Mayor send correspondence on behalf of the Town of Caledon to the Minister of Transportation, Jeff Yurek, to develop policy and regulation to enforce School Bus Stop-Arm infractions.

Whereas the Town of Caledon, including Downtown Bolton, has a number of vacant commercial properties;

And whereas some owners of these properties are not actively seeking tenants for their vacant commercial properties as it is financially advantageous for the properties to remain vacant;

And whereas the Town of Caledon intends on renewing its Economic Development Strategy in 2019;

Now therefore let it be resolved that Economic Development staff be directed to consider all available policy tools, through the renewed Economic Development Strategy, to encourage commercial property owners to find tenants.
