The purpose of this report is to recommend the Designation of the proposed Baby Point Gates Business Improvement Area.

In accordance with Chapter 19 of the City of Toronto Municipal Code, the City Clerk conducted a poll to determine if there is sufficient support to designate the proposed Baby Point Gates BIA.  The number of objecting petitions regarding the Baby Point Gates BIA do not meet the sufficiency benchmark to prevent the designation set out in Chapter 19‑9A of the Municipal Code.  Accordingly, City Council may establish a Business Improvement Area.  Based upon the results, it is recommended that Council pass a by‑law to designate the area described by Attachment 1 (Maps 1‑5), as the Baby Point Gates BIA.
