Welcome

Dear residents and friends,

 

I deeply appreciate your support and confidence and I look forward to an ongoing dialogue with you on the many issues, challenges and opportunities we'll face together as a community here in Ward 22, St. Paul's and as a city.

 

I'm advocating for a more thoughtful, creative and responsible new approach for city council. I want council to engage our city's residents with an inspiring plan and make informed decisions that are based on evidence, community consultation and the merits of arguments - rather than ideology or left or right-wing partisanship.

 

My staff and I are here to assist you with any concerns or questions you may have. We're also working every day to improve our local neighbourhoods- along with supporting the many valued services Torontonians rely on every day. You are always welcome to contact me at 416-392-7906 or by email at councillor_matlow@toronto.ca.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

 

Josh

My letter to the TTC regarding their proposed shutdown of Yonge subway tracks

October 3, 2013

 

Andy Byford

CEO, Toronto Transit Commission

1900 Yonge St

Toronto ON  M4S 1Z2

 

 

 

Dear Mr. Byford,

 

 

Recently, you informed me that the TTC expects to require a temporary closure of the Yonge subway line between St. Clair and Eglinton stations at some point in the future. I appreciate this advance notice.

 

 

We all understand that the City needs to maintain and construct new infrastructure to keep the lights on, water running and, in this case, get residents to work and back. However, Torontonians expect that this work is done properly, as quickly and with as minimal a disruption to their daily lives as is possible.

 

 

Given that this closure would shut down a portion of our city's busiest transit route, it has the potential to affect thousands of transit riders including commuters from across our city and region, shoppers and tourists. It is absolutely imperative that we are fully prepared well in advance to accommodate everyone who needs to travel through and within Midtown Toronto.

 

 

I am writing to urge you to take the substantive steps necessary to keep Toronto moving. In a publicly accessible response could you please consider the following points/questions:

 

 

A) Is it necessary to shut down the tracks during operating hours and/or weekdays? Could the work be done overnight and/or on the weekend?

B) And if A) is not feasible and you can demonstrate to the public why, could the work be done in August when fewer people are working?

C) With transportation capacity significantly reduced would prioritizing shuttle buses (perhaps with shuttle bus-only lanes) ensure that riders can continue to move during this period of disruption?

 

 

The city does not have to grind to a halt during this subway closure as long as the TTC  proactively addresses the situation. I am requesting that the strategy you develop be open and transparent, incorporating feedback from Toronto residents.

 

 

I look forward to your response, and to learn more about your plans, at your earliest possible opportunity.

 

Sincerely,

Councillor Matlow's Community Update for September 26, 2013

Dear Residents,

 

I hope you find my most recent update to you below both interesting and informative. It's very important to me that I represent your priorities and keep you informed about our community and decisions being made at city hall. I continue to advocate for thoughtful, evidence-based & fiscally responsible policy that serves Toronto's residents. Please see my reports on transit, along with other important issues, included in this enewsletter.

 

As always, feel very welcome to contact me if I can be of assistance to you.

 

Best regards,

Josh

 


 

Scarborough Rapid Transit

 

At the upcoming October Council meeting my colleagues and I will be asked to overturn a decision that would have delivered the 7 stop Scarborough LRT in a completely traffic-separated right-of-way without traffic lights or cross streets at no cost to the City as per the current Metrolinx Master Agreement in favour of a 3 stop subway extension (as approved at the July Council meeting) for approximately $1 billion to be paid for through property taxes. Please see my letter to the mayor and councillors here. It is vital that my colleagues and I receive accurate and fulsome technical and financial information from the TTC beforehand. I have sent a letter to TTC CEO Andy Byford requesting further details about the subway plan including additional costs and ridership numbers. To read the full letter, please click here.

 

My star assistant Ev Delen has created this easy to read infographic comparing the proposed Scarborough subway and the approved, fully-funded Scarborough LRT.

 

The Case for a Relief Subway Line

The Relief Line is the subway line that will most improve Toronto’s economy and our quality of life. It would provide an alternative to the congested Yonge-University line, curb gridlock on our city's streets and increase access to the jobs and attractions in our downtown core. Please click here to read more.

 

Eglinton Crosstown Update

 

Amidst the headline-grabbing dysfunction of the Scarborough rapid transit debate, the Eglinton Crosstown is progressing. Boring machines are currently tunneling under Eglinton, stations are being designed and the City is working on plans to improve the street above ground after construction under the street is finished. I am committed to work closely with local residents and small businesses throughout the construction process.

 

City Planning's Eglinton Connects study is focusing on the above ground portion of the Crosstown project. Based on feedback received from the public earlier this year, City Planning is presenting their draft recommendations next week that include:

  • Wider sidewalks, plus room for big trees, benches and patios
  • New public spaces including parks and plazas
  • Traffic reconfigurations throughout Midtown where the Crosstown runs underground
  • A continuous, protected bike lane along Eglinton from Black Creek through to Brentcliffe

Our local meeting will take place on Tuesday October 8 at Forest Hill Collegiate (730 Eglinton Ave W) at 6:30 pm.

 

Development Charges Set to Increase

 

The City of Toronto's Executive Committee endorsed the Development Charges Study and the proposed Development Charges Bylaw this week. The recommendations will be further considered at Toronto City Council at its meeting on October 8. The new fees will help pay for the cost of infrastructure required to service new development, such as roads, transit, water and sewer infrastructure, community centres, and fire and police facilities.

 

The proposed rates represent, on average, a 75 per cent increase over the current residential rates and a 25 per cent increase over the non-residential rate. If the new rates are approved by City Council, the City will implement the rate increases over a two-year period beginning February 1, 2014, with 55 per cent of the increase coming into effect by August 1, 2014 and full implementation by February 1, 2016.

 

While I am pleased that the development industry will start supporting more of their share of the growth it has so greatly benefited from, the City unfortunately backed down from their initial, higher, development charge rates in fear of losing at the OMB. Please see this National Post article for further information.

 

Updates on the new 2014 Ward 22 parks projects

 

This year I’ve worked hard to improve the parks in Ward 22.

  • Work is underway on the approved conceptual plan for the Mission Ground Parkette, located at 399 Merton Street.
  • A consulting firm is currently being selected to take on the Hodgson AIR recreational park project, located behind Hodgson Senior Public School at Davisville Avenue and Mount Pleasant Avenue, and the design process is expected to begin shortly.
  • The preliminary design for Forest Hill Road Park has been completed and approved by the community.
  • A Landscape Architectural consultant is currently being selected to help us move forward with the next steps of the architectural process for this park.
  • A Landscape Architectural consultant will also be selected in the near future to take on the next phase of Charlotte Maher Park.
  • And finally, the project scope of Belsize and Glebe Manor Parks is being reviewed, and I will be working with a consulting firm shortly to get improvements underway.

With all of these improvements in the works, we can look forward to great changes happening in our parks in 2014!

Re-Visioning Yonge Cycling Workshop

 

Yonge Street is Toronto's main street but, for a number of reasons, many people don't feel comfortable walking or cycling for everyday activities along or near Yonge. In Toronto and around the world, good neighbourhood main streets are welcoming and accessible to people on foot and on bicycles. This is important for the vibrancy of our community and can help reduce congestion on our roads and the Yonge subway.

 

Cycle Toronto is facilitating a community conversation about the cycling conditions along the entire Yonge corridor, from Lake Ontario to Steeles Avenue, including side streets and parallel roads. I will be in attendance along with many of my City Council colleagues representing neighbourhoods along Yonge Street to discuss barriers and to brainstorm solutions with local residents. Please join us and share your insights.

 

The workshop will be held October 2, 6:30 - 9:00 pm, at Northern District Library (40 Orchard View Blvd) Room 200. For more information please visit the Cycle Toronto event page.

 

Style on the Way

 

From Thursday, October 24 to Saturday, October 26, the Eglinton Way BIA will be hosting Style on the Way. This three day celebration of Eglinton Avenue will include free rickshaw rides, shopping specials, eats and treats, buskers, jugglers and face painting! For more information, please visit the new Style Lives Here website.

 

Returning common sense to parking for moped and scooters

 

On Friday, the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee agreed to begin the process of returning common sense to scooter and moped parking in Toronto. Due to the motion that Councillor Berardinetti and I brought to City Council, staff have been directed to report back to the Committee with realistic options so that we can move on to finally legalize boulevard parking for scooters and mopeds. This is a necessary step on the path to achieving concrete change.

 

Our job now is to emphasize the urgency of this work to City staff. They need to come back quickly so that people will no longer have to fear receiving unreasonable $50 tickets for simply parking their scooter or moped.

 

Making a tech-friendly Toronto by providing free wi-fi in public spaces

 

I'm bringing an initiative to city hall to create more free wi-fi spaces across the city because I believe it will be a great benefit to our high-tech economy, our tourism industry, and our quality of life, as well as helping Toronto residents who cannot afford internet access in their homes. The Toronto Star wrote an editorial in support of my plan, which you can read here.

 

Funding transit and infrastructure priorities in Toronto

 

In June, City Council approved my motion to have the City Manager study innovative policies that could reduce the City of Toronto's debt burden and allow us to invest more heavily in our transit and infrastructure priorities. In his report to the Executive Committee, which was adopted this morning, the City Manager recommended a program based on the model of "Build America Bonds" in the United States which are directly supported by their federal government. With City Council approval expected in October, we'll be approaching Ottawa to request their assistance in establishing such a program in Canada.

   

My letter to TTC CEO Andy Byford requesting more information about the proposed Scarborough subways

Below is my response to TTC CEO Andy Byford's reply to my letter requesting more information about the proposed Scarborough subways.

 

October 7, 2013

 

Dear Mr. Byford,

 

Thank you for your letter dated October 4, 2013 in response to my letter dated September 30, 2013 requesting additional information for the upcoming City Council meeting where future options for rapid transit in Scarborough will be debated. I appreciate the time you and your staff have taken to respond to my concerns with the McCowan Corridor subway extension of the Bloor-Danforth line and your overall dedication to improving public transit for Torontonians.

 

I welcome the information provided in your response on cost issues including the SRT decommission, responsibility for cost escalations and the process for allocating funding for engineering/design work associated with the new Environmental Assessment that would be necessary for the proposed McCowan Corridor subway extension. Your letter was also useful in highlighting a number of determined costs including $30-40 million per year in capital maintenance and unknown costs such as the cancelled Bombardier contract that are not including in the $3.56 Billion estimate contained in the Report from the City Manager on Scarborough Rapid Transit Options.

 

As noted in your letter, detailed planning work has not been undertaken for the McCowan Corridor extension. I was provided a description of the process used in past transit forecasting analysis and specific data from the 2006 Scarborough RT Strategic Plan, but little in the way of specific data, models and methodology used for ridership projections for the McCowan Corridor extension as requested in my letter. The density and trip origin numbers provided contemplated the route alignment of the approved LRT contained in the signed Master agreement between the TTC, City and Metrolinx. If the TTC has generated similar studies for the McCowan Corridor extension used to generate its ridership forecasts for the proposed subway I would request that it is provided to Council as an appendix to CC. 39.5: Scarborough Rapid Transit Options: Reporting on Council Terms and Conditions in the Council meeting agenda.

 

Of particular concern is your revelation that the TTC has not determined overall trip time from point of origin, including time of travel for walking and bus, for the LRT and the proposed McCowan extension given its importance to transit riders and their representatives on Council. As the subway option provides decreased geographic coverage and fewer stops it is likely that many Scarborough residents would confront a longer overall commute with this option than with the LRT. Having this information quantified would be helpful for Councillors and residents.

 

I understand that it is standard practice to perform detailed planning work only after approval for a project is given. However, this is not a standard transit planning exercise. If Council gives Staff permission to move forward studying the subway extension, the only alternative - the fully-funded, shovel-ready Scarborough LRT - is dead. And in four years, if the EA confirms that the Relief Subway is, in fact, a prerequisite for the McCowan Corridor extension or it is determined that it is indeed more of a regional route that Toronto taxpayers should not be funding alone, or the technical studies find it is exorbitantly expensive due to geological features, what do we do? We'll have spent several years studying it and hundreds of millions of dollars keeping the current RT standing with nothing to show for it. Given the risks associated with the decision before Council, the TTC's rationale underpinning the McCowan Corridor extension is inadequate.

 

I appreciate the quick response you provided to my letter and your candour in answering my questions. I look forward to discussing this issue with you further at City Council on October 8, 2013.

 

Sincerely,

 

Josh Matlow

Below is my original letter to TTC CEO Andy Byford requesting more information about the proposed Scarborough subways.

 

Dear Mr. Byford,  At the upcoming October Council meeting my colleagues and I will be asked to overturn a decision that would have delivered the 7 stop Scarborough LRT in a completely traffic-separated right-of-way without traffic lights or cross streets at no cost to the City as per the current Metrolinx Master Agreement in favour of a 3 stop subway extension (as approved at the July Council meeting) for approximately $1 billion to be paid for through property taxes. It is vital that my colleagues and I receive accurate and fulsome technical and financial information from the TTC beforehand. Please make the following information available to City Council and the public:  •	Data, models, assumptions, and methodology used by TTC staff to determine the respective ridership projections for a light-rail conversion and a subway extension including:  o	Trip origin of riders. With each mode of transit, where are the riders expected to start their journey? How many riders are from Scarborough? How many are from other municipalities in the Greater Toronto Area?  o	Future density assumptions, identifying where and how growth will occur •	From point of origin including time of travel for walking and bus, what is the average trip time for Scarborough residents from different municipal ward boundaries (or other delineated land parcels) to Yonge/Bloor station using both subway and LRT? •	Cost to the City of project escalation (nominal dollars) associated with the subway extension only, as Metrolinx will pay these costs if Council opts for the LRT plan •	Annual ongoing operating and maintenance costs associated with the subway extension only, as Metrolinx will pay these costs if Council opts for the LRT plan •	The cost of the subway was estimated in a January TTC report (pg 16) at $2.8 billion. Please account for the $500 million cost discrepancy as compared to the figure cited in the July report to Council •	Cost to decommission current SRT •	Cost to cancel Bombardier LRT contract •	Cost and length of time for new Environmental Assessment for the subway extension •	Cost of engineering and design work for the subway extension •	Cost of permanently providing parallel bus service due to wide spacing between subway stations. •	Describe additional pressures on Bloor/Yonge subway and other effects on TTC network resulting from potential Scarborough subway extension o	In particular, how will service quality and travel times be affected for riders travelling on the Yonge line (including those from Scarborough) if the Relief Subway Line does not open at the same time as a Scarborough subway extension? •	Describe need for Automatic Train Control (ATC) that would be triggered by a Scarborough subway extension including the changed timeline for implementation and cost •	Any additional costs associated with the subway? •	How would shifting resources toward a Scarborough subway extension affect the ability of the City to move forward with projects that have been identified as a higher priority including the Relief Line? Would construction costs be driven up? Would locating additional boring machines be an issue? Would current TTC staffing levels be sufficient?  The TTC has requested similar information from Metrolinx to evaluate the provincial subway option in its September 25 report to the TTC Commission.  Please provide the requested information by October 1, 2013 to give Councillors a week to review it prior to the Council meeting. I appreciate your exemplary service for Toronto transit riders and eagerly await your response.  Sincerely,      Josh Matlow Toronto City Councillor Ward 22 – St. Paul’s www.joshmatlow.ca

APPROVED: Supporting Improved Parking for Mopeds and Scooters

Dear Friends,

 

It is my pleasure to report that the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee agreed, this afternoon, to begin the process of returning common sense to scooter and moped parking in Toronto. Due to the motion that Councillor Berardinetti and I brought to City Council, staff have been directed to report back to the Committee with realistic options so that we can move on to finally legalize boulevard parking for scooters and mopeds. This is a necessary step on the path to achieving concrete change.

 

Thank you so much for contacting your local councillor, writing to the Committee, and even coming down to City Hall for the meeting today. Your engagement was very important to our success.

 

Our job now is to emphasize the urgency of this work to City staff. They need to come back quickly so that people will no longer have to fear receiving unreasonable $50 tickets for simply parking their scooter or moped. I'll share an additional update with you once I know when we can expect the final report to be released and voted on at the Committee.

 

Sincerely,

Josh

   

Build The Relief Subway Line Now!

 

The Relief Line is seen on the map in red.

 

It's time to stop the endless debates. Toronto City Council has a responsibility to use honest, evidence-based and fiscally responsible transit planning rather than rhetorical political posturing. We can't keep waiting to improve transit and fight gridlock. Toronto needs the Relief Subway Line now.

 

printPDF Click here to download this information as a brochure to print and share.

 

What is the Relief Subway Line?

The Relief Subway Line would provide an alternative to our existing subway system that’s already overcrowded during rush hours, curb gridlock on our city’s streets and increase access to jobs and attractions. It is the evidence-based subway expansion project that would most improve Toronto’s economy and residents’ quality of life.

 

While the precise route must be designed by our planners and engineers, transit experts agree that the first priority is to build a line from Pape station through the downtown to relieve the extreme overcrowding at Bloor-Yonge station created by riders coming into downtown from the east.

 

As seen on the map above, the next two phases are to extend the line north to Eglinton or west and then north to Bloor near High Park. Both should be completed but projected ridership numbers and the coming Eglinton Crosstown suggest that the northern extension serving residents from North York and Scarborough should be a higher priority.

 

The Relief Subway Line is Toronto's Real Top Transit Priority

What subway expansion project does Metrolinx CEO Bruce McCuaig, TTC CEO Andy ByfordToronto's Chief Planner Jennifer Keesmaat and City Manager Joe Pennachetti all agree is Toronto's top transit priority? The Relief Subway Line.

 

This City Council term has unfortunately featured transit debates long on rhetoric and short on facts. The Relief Subway Line is the one line that most transit experts agree is not only justified by high ridership but will very shortly become necessary if we are to avoid crippling overcrowding elsewhere on the subway system and curb gridlock on Toronto’s streets.

 

Photo of crowded Bloor platform on Yonge subway line.

 

As any resident who rides the subway knows, the Yonge line is already at capacity. During rush hour at stations like Eglinton it is common to wait for two or three trains before boarding and once on, you’re crammed in like a sardine.

 

The overcrowding is most critical at Bloor-Yonge station, which is already overcrowded with another 45% increase in users expected over the next twenty years. Even with signal improvements and the new, larger trains we can’t keep ahead of this growth.

 

Metrolinx, the provincial transit agency, has identified the Relief Subway as a priority for the next phase of projects to be started within fifteen years.

 

Toronto can't wait that long.

100 Years of Delays and Inaction

The Relief Subway is a long considered transit route providing an alternative link between the suburbs and the downtown that has taken various forms in City and TTC planning documents over the past century. As early as 1910, City planners recognized the need for a 'U-shaped' line linking the eastern and western portion of the City with the core, and produced the map below.

 

Map of 1910 relief line subway plan for Toronto.

 

Plans and studies for a Relief Subway Line were also put forward in 1944, 1973, and 1985. Unfortunately, these plans have done little more than collect dust on a shelf. In their 2012 Downtown Rapid Transit report the TTC once again made the case to construct the Relief Subway Line. We cannot afford to let another opportunity leave the station.

 

Take Action Now!

Please write to the Premier of Ontario, the Minister of Transportation, and your local representatives to tell them:

 

  • You are tired of waiting for two or three trains on the overcrowded Yonge line.
  • You want a transit system that will curb gridlock by being a quality and realistic alternative to driving a car.
  • The Relief Subway will mean a faster route in and out of downtown for residents from across Toronto (including Scarborough and North York).
  • The current transit network in and out of downtown will reach capacity by 2031.
  • Tax dollars should be spent on our real transit priorities.
  • Toronto needs the Relief Subway now!
