Mississauga Hosting Meetings on Future of Lakeshore Road


Published November 7, 2016 at 8:03 pm


There have been a lot of big ticket projects proposed for Mississauga lately (M City, Dundas Connects, Inspiration Lakeview, etc.) and the city’s thriving Lakeshore communities aren’t being left behind.

This month, the city is holding public meetings regarding the future of Lakeshore. The Lakeshore Connecting Communities study will look at how to best connect the communities of Clarkson, Port Credit and Lakeview “while preserving and enhancing the unique character and sense of place of each community.”

Since the project is very much in its infancy, residents are being invited to attend a series of public meetings to share their visions. As of now, the city is asking for input regarding a transportation vision for Lakeshore Road.

If you want to share your thoughts, you can attend a meeting tonight at Clarke Memorial Hall. The meeting will run from 5:30-8:30 p.m..

There will also be another meeting tomorrow at Chartwell Baptist Church (1880 Lakeshore Road West) from 5:30-8:30 p.m.

As far as the project goes, Lakeshore Connecting Communities will build on recent planning studies and develop a design for the Lakeshore Road corridor that “supports all modes of transportation, connects people to places and moves goods to market.”

The study will also evaluate rapid transit alternatives east of Hurontario Street as well as extending rapid transit into the Port Credit area.
