RE: Part 1 application seeking a Commission determination as to the appropriate allocation of the costs of certain relocations requested by the Regional Municipality of York

Dear Madams:

On 2 May 2012, Rogers Communications Partnership (RCP) filed the above-noted Part 1 application with the Commission. In its application, the company sought a Commission determination regarding the appropriate allocation of the costs associated with the relocation of RCP’s facilities to accommodate the Regional Municipality of York (York Region).

By way of a letter dated 21 December 2012, the Commission directed RCP and York Region to resume negotiations in an attempt to resolve this matter. The Commission indicated that, should RCP and York Region be unable to come to a negotiated agreement within 60 days, either party may ask the Commission to issue a determination on the appropriate principles that should govern the allocation of identified relocation costs.

In its letter dated 14 February 2013, York Region indicated that it had been in discussion with RCP to resolve the issues raised in the above-noted application, and requested, on behalf of both parties, that they be afforded additional time to reach a negotiated agreement. York Region indicated that the parties should be able to reach an agreement by 22 April 2013.

Commission staff considers the proposed deadline of 22 April 2013 to be reasonable. Commission staff notes, however, that should the parties be unable to reach a negotiated agreement, either party may, at any time, request that the Commission issue a determination on the above-noted application.

Yours sincerely,
