• City of Mississauga Considers Temporary Use By-law to Permit Some Outdoor Businesses

    November 18, 2020

    Today at General Committee, staff were directed to prepare a temporary use by-law effective to December 31, 2021, to permit outdoor retail sales and display and outdoor recreational and entertainment establishments.

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City has received several requests for outdoor uses which are not permitted in the zoning by-law. To support Mississauga’s businesses and/or charitable ventures, the City can temporarily permit outdoor retail sales and display and temporary outdoor recreational and entertainment establishments in appropriate zones.

    A statutory public meeting scheduled for December 9, 2020 is required to enact the temporary use by-law. If moved by Council next week, enforcement of the zoning by-law provisions which currently do not permit outdoor retail sales and display and outdoor recreational and entertainment establishments will be suspended until the public meeting takes place and the temporary use by-law enacted.

    What:

    Public meeting with respect to permitting outdoor retail sales and display and outdoor recreational and entertainment establishments and for the public to ask questions and share views about the proposal.

    Options for participating in the meeting outlined below.
