This week, Council approved steps to name and rename a number of Ward 10 facilities.
“Our facilities in Ward 10 are receiving appropriate names for the important services they provide,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “City of Mississauga’s library and recreation services are key in keeping residents of all ages active and healthy, and the pandemic has really shown us the value and benefit of these services. We look forward to the wider reopening of all our facilities in the months to come. I am also proud of my Council colleagues here in Mississauga, and at the Region of Peel, for advocating that essential workers be prioritized in Ontario’s vaccine rollout.”
Ward 10 Facility Names
Council approved a 30-day review period for naming and renaming of a number of Ward 10 City facilities including:
- naming the new community centre located at 5320 Ninth Line Churchill Meadows Community Centre
- naming Park 459 Churchill Meadows Sports Park
- renaming Churchill Meadows Branch Library and Activity Centre to Churchill Meadows Library and Older Adult Centre
- renaming Churchill Meadows Community Common P-423 to Friendship Community Park
Prioritization of Vaccinations for Vulnerable Employees at Places of Work
At the March 10 Special Meeting of Council, a motion was passed to request the support of the Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Loh, to request the Ontario Government prioritize early vaccination to Peel residents employed under conditions that make their places of work conducive to the spread of COVID. The original motion was raised by Ward 5 Councillor Carolyn Parrish.
The motion went to the Region of Peel’s March 11 Council meeting and subsequently passed.
