The City of Mississauga and Metrolinx are working together to complete environmental assessment approvals for the Dundas Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Mississauga East Project. The project will have an impact on the look, feel, and operation of Dundas Street in the future.

Residents are invited to have their say and give their feedback on the Mississauga East portion of the BRT that will run from Etobicoke Creek to Confederation Parkway. Read More

Waste service impacts today due to snowstorm

By Events, Issues, Resources, Ward 1
January 17, 2022
Due to today’s snow storm and road conditions, Region of Peel’s waste collection contractors are unable to safely collect waste. In the interest of safety, today’s curbside and multi-residential waste collection has been cancelled.
• Residents are asked to set out their waste at the curb one day later than usual this week (for example, if your waste is usually collected Monday, set it out for Tuesday; if your waste is usually collected Tuesday, set it out for Wednesday, etc.).
• Best efforts will be made to collect all waste between Tuesday and Friday but, given the weather and Covid conditions, residents should expect delays.
• As a reminder, there will be no bulky collection starting this week until further notice.
• If residents have their natural Christmas trees set out, they are asked to ensure that the trees are visible and accessible for pickup.
In addition, only two Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) are operational today – Heart Lake CRC in Brampton and Fewster CRC in Mississauga. All other CRC locations are closed for today.

Happy New Year Presidents, Board Members and Neighbours!

The past year continued to be very challenging. I’m looking forward to 2022 with energy and optimism.

With the limitations and restrictions in 2021, I wanted to ensure we had a variety of outdoor community events and our office continued to have community (virtual) meetings on a variety of issues; such as the concerns regarding traffic calming issues, development applications, ensuring the Ward gets its fair share with the “Slow Street” program and the “Slow Down” sign program, to name a few. The majority of the streets throughout the Ward have reduced speed limit signage reducing the speed to 40km.

You may recall, I asked for the reduced speed in sections along Lakeshore Road East last year and it has proven to be very successful. Another important initiative I have been working on for our community as an Advocate is against vehicle noise and speed.

The Lakeshore East Corridor Study, the Marina and the Dundas BRT study were reviewed and continue to be modified. These initiatives are critical to our Ward for safe and proper planning. I look forward to continuing to work together on the concerns and aspirations of the community. There will be a number of exciting initiatives in 2022 for our community and I look forward to sharing them with you.

Our community is our home! Shop Local!

Stephen Dasko, Councillor – Ward 1
