Mississauga’s first Water Lantern Festival

By Events, Resources

On Saturday August 10th, One World LLC will be hosting Mississauga’s first Water Lantern Festival at Port Credit Memorial Park.  Common in Southeast Asia, water lanterns made from wood and rice paper and lit by a battery operated votive candle, will be released into a contained section of the Credit River, after sunset. Lanterns are later recovered and returned to owners.

Lanterns may be purchased by participants who will be encouraged to write climate change and sustainability messages on the rice sails.  Organizers have sold approximately 1,500 lanterns to date.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Credit Valley Conservation Foundation in support of environmental initiatives.

Staff will be attending to support and assist with environmental messaging and to promote sustainability.

Public Information Centre – 1 Port Street East Proposed Marina Project

By Events, Issues, Resources

July 9, 2019

In 2016, City Council approved the Inspiration Port Credit Master Plan, which included a marina at 1 Port Street East as part of the vision.

The City of Mississauga is beginning an environmental assessment under the Environmental Assessment Act for the 1 Port Street East Proposed Marina Project. The environmental assessment will study a proposed expanded land base for additional waterfront parkland. It will also examine any marina alternatives for the existing site. As an introduction to the project, the City is inviting local-area residents, businesses, stakeholders and the boating community to a public information centre on July 18.

New Mississauga Library website

By Events, Issues, Uncategorized

June 25, 2019

Today, we reached a milestone in the Digital Modernization Initiative and launched the new Mississauga Library website to the public. Following months of design, planning, and testing, staff activated the site smoothly today at 10:00 am, without any problems or disruptions to services.

We created the site by using public input to improve our work, and by following our new Digital Service Standard. Our goal was to make the site accessible and easier to use by creating better search, clear navigation, and simplified content. The site works on a wide range of devices: mobile, tablet, and desktop.

We will continue to measure and improve our work in the following ways:

  • Each page of the new Library site features a feedback button for customers to report problems directly to staff
  • We have implemented a quality assurance dashboard, which will monitor continuously for any errors
  • We are introducing a new customer satisfaction tool this year, to help us understand people’s ever-shifting needs as we continue to evolve the site

The site was developed through a collaborative effort between the Strategic Communications, IT, and Mississauga Library teams. Led by the library’s Master Plan, Future Directions, the site helps move towards the goals of bridging the digital divide, ensuring barrier free access to technology and continuing to invest in a 24/7 virtual branch.

Should you require any additional information please let me know.

City is making Mississauga’s waterfront more inclusive and accessible

By Events, Issues, Resources

In an effort to remove and prevent barriers for persons with disabilities, the City is making Mississauga’s waterfront more inclusive and accessible for all with the Accessible Beach Routes pilot project.  Accessible Beach Routes will roll out at Lakefront Promenade and Jack Darling Memorial Park on July 1, 2019, weather permitting.

Accessible beach mats provide a nonslip, accessible surface and allows individuals with mobility aids, such as wheelchairs and walkers, older adults and parents with strollers, easier to access to the beach.

Parks Operations staff will install the mats and directional signage at both park locations.  The mats are secured in place with pins, allowing for easy maintenance without requiring the mats to be removed or the facility closed for an extended period of time.  The beach access route will remain in place for the season and the mats will be removed annually in the fall and over winter.

If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
