    Port Credit Construction Notice July 2020

  • MiWay is revising Route 103 – Hurontario Express

    Starting Aug. 3, 2020, MiWay is revising Route 103 – Hurontario Express as part of the second phase of routing changes along the Hurontario corridor.

    The routing changes are required to help minimize impacts on service reliability due to Hurontario Light Rail Transit (HuLRT) construction, which began on March 30, 2020. The construction is expected to reduce traffic lanes south of the QEW in each direction in the coming months.

    The revised Route 103 – Hurontario Express will travel between the Brampton Gateway Terminal and the Trillium Mississauga Hospital, seven days a week. While it will no longer travel south of The Queensway to Port Credit GO Station, customers can still get there by transferring from Route 103 onto Route 2-Hurontario at northbound and southbound stops at Burnhamthorpe Rd E, Elm Dr, Central Pkwy, John St, Dundas St, and Paisley Blvd.

    Frequent service on Route 103 and Hurontario local Routes 2 and 17 allows for convenient transfers along the Hurontario corridor, and Route 2-Hurontario will continue to provide local service to all stops between the City Centre Transit Terminal and Port Credit GO Station.

    MiWay implemented the first phase of the Hurontario corridor routing changes on April 27, 2020. The changes included replacing Route 19 Hurontario with two new routes (Route 17 Hurontario and Route 2 Hurontario), and cancelling Route 19 variants 19A, 19B and 19C while providing alternative options, including a revised Route 25 Traders Loop to service portions of the 19A and 19B.

    MiWay’s planned Hurontario corridor changes are in addition to daily service adjustments being made by MiWay to provide essential transit services across Mississauga in response to COVID-19.

    To learn more about these new route changes, visit www.miway.ca/hurontario.

    For details about other planned service changes that take effect on Monday, Aug. 3, please visit www.miway.ca/aug3.

  • Virtual Committee Meetings & Library Recovery Plan

    June 3, 2020

    City of Mississauga COVID-19 Response Continues: Virtual Committee Meetings & Library Recovery Plan

    COVID-19 | June 3, 2020

    Today, Mississauga City Council approved several initiatives in relation to COVID-19 including virtual meetings for Planning and Development Committee (PDC) and Committee of Adjustment and a Library recovery plan.

    “We are very pleased to be taking further steps toward recovery in Mississauga. Our Library has plans to reopen in a phased approach and our Planning and Development Committee and Committee of Adjustment meetings will resume in a virtual format. Enhanced public notification will complement the change of format,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “I would like to note our Planning and Legislative Services staff have remained fully operational during the pandemic and will resume holding required public meetings in association with development and Committee of Adjustment applications in order to keep our City moving.”

    During the pandemic, on April 22, 2020 Council suspended PDC and Committee of Adjustment meetings. Since the closure of City Hall, Planning and Building Department services have remained fully operational, including accepting and processing development and building permit applications with online submission processes including fee payments and scheduling building and site inspections. Public meetings will resume in association with development and Committee of Adjustment applications. PDC meeting notices provide a range of options for residents and businesses to access additional information, including how to contact the city planner and how to provide written comments by mail or email.

    Planning and Development Committee and Committee of Adjustment Virtual Meetings

    Virtual PDC meetings will occur in the same format that Council is currently meeting with public engagement through telephone, computer or mobile device. Applicants will be able to present their development proposals to PDC and the public and respond to questions or comments from Council and registered deputants. Information reports will outline resident concerns received up until the report is prepared. Recommendation reports will continue to summarize and respond to resident concerns. PDC meetings will be held in evenings at 6 p.m. The first virtual PDC meeting will be tentatively held on July 13, 2020. Visit the Council and Committees Calendar for updates.

    Which Applications Can Proceed to a Virtual PDC Meeting?

    Development applications and City-initiated projects that are eligible can be scheduled for a virtual PDC meeting. Only applications deemed to be non-controversial or expected to attract limited public interests will be advanced. If public interest is limited, an information report with enhanced public notice would proceed to a PDC meeting. If additional public engagement is required during the public meeting, the committee may direct staff to either hold a second public meeting once in-person meetings resume or provide full public notice when the Recommendation report is presented at a later PDC meeting. Recommendation Reports for development applications and/or City-initiated projects that have already had a public meeting and which generated minimal resident concern should also be scheduled for a virtual PDC meeting. If the committee subsequently determines that additional public engagement is needed during the recommendation report meeting, it may defer the matter to a later meeting once in-person meetings resume.

    Committee of Adjustment Meetings

    Similar to Council and PDC, the Committee of Adjustment virtual meetings will allow the public and applicants to engage in the process and meeting through telephone, computer or mobile device. The public notices will provide details about how to register as a deputant to speak at a meeting or other means of providing input about an application. The next Committee of Adjustment meeting will start the week of June 22, 2020. The committee is to meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays to address applications. Visit the Council and Committees Calendar for updates.

    Electronic application submission and payment has continued since the closure of the Civic Centre.  Details related to the Committee of Adjustment can be found at https://web.mississauga.ca/council/committees/committee-of-adjustment

  • Update Meeting on Port Credit Harbour West Parks Project

    Join us for an Update Meeting on Port Credit Harbour West Parks Project

     The City of Mississauga is progressing with the proposed plans to transform the west bank of Port Credit Harbour into a vibrant and functional waterfront destination. Building on the recommendations from the 2008 Waterfront Parks Strategy and the Strategy Refresh in 2019, the goal for this project is to meet the various waterfront needs of residents, visitors and businesses while maintaining Port Credit’s cultural heritage.

    The project will transform two priority parks identified under the Waterfront Parks Strategy – Port Credit Memorial Park (west) and Marina Park. The project area also includes the Lakeshore Road bridge underpass connection and the Rivergate easement.

    Plans for the waterfront space focus on creating a distinctive destination with programmable multi-use space, open green space, a continuous water’s edge promenade, naturalization and landscape. Improvements to the space will also be made to support the working port – an important piece of Port Credit’s history.
