Bringing the Lakeview Innovation District to Life

By Events, Planning & Development, Uncategorized, Ward 1

The City of Mississauga is seeking input on an incentive program that will help transform a former industrial area along the waterfront into a 20-acre innovation campus. The Lakeview Innovation District, part of the 177-acre Lakeview Village development, will become an employment hub where people can research, test and develop solutions in state-of-the-art offices, flex-offices and lab spaces.

The City is currently working on developing a Community Improvement Plan (CIP) to help bring the Innovation District to life. It could include incentives to encourage uses such as:

  • clean technology, including low carbon technology
  • life sciences, and
  • information and communications technology

Public and industry input is required to help define the types of incentives – both financial and non-financial – to help attract these uses.

“Waterfront redevelopments like Lakeview provide a unique, generational opportunity to foster innovation and spur economic growth and leading-edge technology,” said Christina Kakaflikas, Director, Mississauga Economic Development Office. “Mississauga is the second-largest employment hub in the Greater Toronto Area and the second-largest economy in Ontario. The Lakeview Innovation District will solidify our position as a major economic hub by creating thousands of highly skilled jobs in the key sectors we’re invested in growing on our waterfront.”

The City has launched a survey to take input on possible incentives including:

In this light-hearted and unconventional look at how and why we garden, author Lorraine Johnson challenges us to consider the role of gardens in an era of ecological and social change. Highlighting examples of gardeners who push against neighbourhood norms—and who are often subject to bylaws and other forms of social sanction—this talk encourages us to celebrate landscape diversity and the gardeners who challenge deeply held notions of garden convention.

Let’s Walk and Roll! Make the Journey to School Fun, Safe and Active for Walk to School Month

By Events, Issues, Uncategorized, Ward 1

October 1, 2021

 In addition to Pedestrian Safety Month, October is also International Walk to School Month and the City of Mississauga is launching a Mississauga Walk to School Month online event. Throughout October, the event encourages all Mississauga students, their parents and guardians to leave their car at home and use active transportation to get to and from school or their designated bus stop. Active transportation includes walking, rollerblading or travelling by bike, scooter, skateboard, wheelchair or other mobility devices. With many students returning to in-person learning and residents and commuters returning to work, there is more congestion on Mississauga’s roads. Walking and rolling is a healthy and fun way to travel to school that contributes to safer streets and reduced traffic congestion in and around school zones.  The event also promotes staying safe by following road and trail rules.

Participating students or their parents or guardians are encouraged to keep track of the number of times they walk or roll to or from school or the bus stop. Students learning virtually can participate by tracking their walking or rolling trips, such as in their neighbourhood, through a local trail or to run errands with family. During the month of October, participants can download an online certificate to celebrate the number of trips they made, as well as share their accomplishment on social media using the hashtag #WalktoSchoolSauga.

Council Approves Extension of Mandatory Face Mask By-Law to March 31, 2022

By Issues, Uncategorized, Ward 1

Based on the advice of Peel Public Health, Mississauga Council approved an extension to the City’s Mandatory Face Mask By-Law to March 31, 2022.

The Mandatory Face Mask By-Law  requires everyone (subject to some exceptions) to wear a medical or non-medical mask inside buildings where the public is ordinarily invited or permitted access. This by-law also applies to those who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

“As we continue to respond to COVID-19 in our community, we have to do everything possible to stop the spread and wearing a mask, especially indoors, is one way we can continue to do our part,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “As we enter the fall, we expect that more people will start spending more time indoors which is why I am very supportive of Dr. Loh’s recommendation to extend the face mask by-law to March 2022.”
