Something New Has Come to Port Credit in Mississauga
Sometimes, a small change can make a big difference—especially if it keeps litter off the streets.
If you noticed a small change in Port Credit, you have a provincial initiative to thank for that.
The City of Mississauga recently announced that it's preparing to celebrate the $667,953 in funding received through the Association of Municipalities Ontario (AMO) as part of the province's Main Street Revitalization Initiative.
Port Credit is the first neighbourhood in Mississauga to complete its project, having installed new waste bins to help reduce litter in the area.
On Tuesday, July 30, Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie, members of council, MPPs and representatives from the Clarkson, Malton, Port Credit and Streetsville BIAs will gather to celebrate the completed project in the patio area near the Timothy's in Port Credit (129 Lakeshore Rd. E.)
Mississauga isn't the only city to benefit from the project—and more neighbourhoods across the city will get to beautify their streetscapes in the not-too-distant future.
The AMO says the Ontario government is investing $26 million to support and grow small business through the initiative.
The fund has been designed to support small businesses areas by providing funds to municipalities to implement local Community Improvement Plans and/or encourage investment in municipal and other public infrastructure within main street areas.
Other beautification projects being managed by Mississauga's BIA's include enhanced signage, benches, new planters and flowers.
