The Following Places Are Closing Due to Weather in Mississauga
If you've been outside (or if you have a window), you know the weather is more than frightful.
For that reason, a number of city-run facilities will be temporarily closed because of the inclement weather.
"As a result of a significant snow event, all City of Mississauga recreation, culture and library programs are cancelled as of 3 p.m. today and throughout the evening," the city said in a recent news release.
According to the city, Meadowvale Theatre, the Small Arms Inspection Building and the city's museums will also be closed this evening.
Community centres (including fitness centres), arenas and the Paramount Fine Foods Centre and libraries will remain open to the public. Rentals will continue.
Residents should also note that two committees of City Council are cancelled. The planning and development committee meeting scheduled for tonight and the road safety committee meeting scheduled for Tuesday morning have been cancelled.
The city’s Animal Services shelter will close at 4 p.m.
As a result of the current weather, MiWay is experiencing delays on several routes, so commuters should be aware that their trip home may take longer than usual.
The city has also declared a "significant weather event” and deployed crews to maintain road safety.
Due to the significant snowfall expected, levels of service will be placed on hold for the duration of the declaration to ensure that crews can focus on areas of immediate need.
Residents are asked to exercise caution when travelling on roads and sidewalks as snow clearing may take longer to complete.
The city says crews will focus on keeping major roads clear for the duration of the storm so that emergency vehicles and transit can operate safely. Once completed, crews will move on to clearing residential roads, priority sidewalks and bus stops.
Temporary parking permits have been suspended and new ones will not be issued until further notice.
Residents are asked to remove their parked vehicles from streets so that staff and equipment can safely clear roads.
