Dear Resident,

Re: Community Virtual Meeting 

170 Lakeshore Road East 

The City of Mississauga has received an application from Lightpoint Inc. to redevelop their existing plaza at the northwest corner of Lakeshore Road East and Elmwood Avenue North with a 15 storey apartment building containing 149 residential units and ground floor commercial space.

In order to implement their plans, the applicant is proposing to amend the Official Plan and rezone the property. I am hosting this community virtual meeting to provide residents with more information and to have a transparent discussion on the proposed development.

This winter, avoid short term damages from excessive salt use while staying safe

By Resources, Ward 1

January 7, 2022

It’s that time of year when we apply salt to make winter driving and walking easier; however too much salt doesn’t make it any safer. Using salt on roads, sidewalks, parking lots, and driveways has a big impact when snow and ice melt. It can damage infrastructure, wildlife, and personal belongings. This includes cracks and salt stains on concrete surfaces, such as buildings, sidewalks, driveways, and pathways. A lot of salt use can also damage floors and carpets and your personal items such as the undercoating of cars, shoes, and clothing. Apart from stationary objects, your pets and other wildlife can also suffer from oversalting. It can harm pets’ paws when going out for walks and it can even be mistaken for food for pets and birds, resulting in a choking hazard. Read More

Peel Region advises residents that the winter garbage exemption period (originally scheduled from January 24 to February 4) is suspended.  This is being done in response to the record-rising COVID-19 cases, and to ensure the health and safety of essential front-line staff while maintaining Regional services for the long term.

Residents are reminded that:

  • Garbage tags must be used to dispose of excess garbage bags.
  • Untagged garbage will not be collected.
  • Bulky item collection will continue every garbage pick up day.

Residents can visit peelregion.ca/waste to order garbage tags if required.  Residents can also order garbage tags by phone by calling 905-791-9499 or 905-584-2216 for Caledon residents.

Residents can also take their excess garbage and bulky items to any Peel Community Recycling Centre (CRC), where disposal fees will apply. Check peelregion.ca/waste for locations and hours of operation. Please note that the CRCs only accept credit/debit payment. Cash payments are not accepted.

The Region of Peel works with residents and partners to create a healthy, safe and connected Community for Life for approximately 1.5 million people and over 175,000 businesses in the cities of Brampton and Mississauga and the Town of Caledon.
