Mississauga looks for input on several projects that are ‘transforming the city’
Published March 13, 2023 at 1:25 pm
From transit and air quality to shopping mall redevelopment and housing, the City of Mississauga says it has a number of transformational projects on the go.
City officials say those are just a few areas in which they are mapping out Mississauga’s future via a series of ongoing projects “that are transforming the city.”
As plans move forward, they say they want to heavily involve residents, in both informing them and seeking their input into major decisions.
“Community engagement is important to us,” a City spokesperson said in a news release. “We want to hear your ideas and opinions on the projects that are transforming the city. There are many different ways to get involved as we work together to plan and shape Mississauga’s future.”
The City says there’s opportunity for residents in the coming weeks to provide important feedback on several projects:
- Clarkson Transit Station Area: Air Quality Study–the City is developing a plan for the area surrounding Clarkson GO station to guide future development. As part of this work, an Air Quality Study was required to evaluate the impacts of transportation and industry on air quality in the area. Residents can learn about study results and next steps for the area study by joining a live virtual meeting (March 22, 6 to 7:30 p.m.) or watching an online recording of the meeting afterwards
- Dixie Outlet Mall Policy Review–the City is reviewing the Dixie Outlet Mall site to help guide redevelopment in the area. Residents can share their thoughts on the elements required to achieve a complete community such as new roads, pedestrian connections, housing, parks and shopping at a virtual project kick-off community meeting (March 28, 6 to 7:30 p.m.) or watching the meeting afterwards online
- Employment Sites Review–the City, in partnership with the Region of Peel, is evaluating three retail and commercial sites to determine if residential uses are appropriate in those areas. The sites are located in employment areas as follows: Site 1, Argentia Rd. near Lisgar GO station (between 10th Line West/Winston Churchill Blvd.); Site 2, Burnhamthorpe Rd. W. (between Erindale Station Rd./Central Pkwy. W.); and Site 3, Burnhamthorpe Rd. W. (between Mavis/Wolfedale Rds.). Virtual engagement sessions are scheduled for April 4 (6 to 7:30 p.m. for Site 1) and April 11 (6 to 7:30 p.m. for Sites 2 and 3)
