Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study:
Cooksville Creek South of Lakeshore Road

• The City of Mississauga is undertaking a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Study for the Cooksville Creek Erosion Control Project South of Lakeshore Road.

• The City of Mississauga recognizes that this section of Cooksville Creek has been impacted by recent storm events and high lake levels and is in need of rehabilitation. Plans will also need to consider the deteriorated condition of the adjacent city trail through Helen Molasy Memorial Park that sits above the east bank of the creek, as well as the neighbouring properties which have experienced ongoing drainage issues.

• The study will examine this section of the Cooksville Creek and Helen Molasy Trail to identify existing problems, potential risks, and opportunities for restoration and drainage improvements.
• Through the Class EA process, the Study Team will develop and evaluate multiple alternative solutions and refine the options through public and agency consultation (see below). The Study Team will then select a Preferred Alternative.
• At the end of the study, a Project File, documenting the study process will be available for public review.
• Following completion of the Class EA Study, designs will be developed and implemented in accordance with study recommendations.

• Consultation is an important part of the Class EA process. Public input and comment are invited for incorporation into the planning and design of this project.
• A Public Information Centre (PIC) will be held to present the study findings, to consider alternative solutions, and to answer any questions you may have. Details regarding the PIC will be advertised publicly as the study progresses.
• Project information will be made available on the City’s project website:
