Have Your Say! Participate in Virtual Engagement Sessions Shaping Mississauga

By February 1, 2022Issues, Resources, Ward 1

The City is kicking off 2022 with virtual community engagement on some key projects that are building our city.

Have your say Mississauga! We want to hear your ideas and opinions on the projects that are transforming Mississauga. The following are some of the upcoming engagement sessions for February and March where you can provide input, feedback and gain a greater understanding of how the City is planning and shaping Mississauga’s future.

This policy review examines how to manage the anticipated growth in Downtown Fairview, Cooksville and Hospital communities along the Hurontario Street corridor.  It explores how official plan policies can support the creation of 15 minute communities for these areas.

The community meeting will provide residents, business owners and stakeholders with an update on the draft Official Plan policies and built form standards. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide their feedback.

We are launching the Environmental Assessment under the Environmental Assessment Act for the 1 Port Street East Proposed Marina Project. The Environmental Assessment will study proposed lakefill alternatives for additional waterfront parkland and marina for this site.

On Thursday, February 17, a virtual Public Information Centre (PIC) will launch for the project’s Environmental Assessment online on the project website. A recorded presentation and survey will be available for residents to review and complete anytime between Thursday, February 17 and Thursday, March 17.

Inclusionary Zoning is a planning tool, which could help to bring more affordable housing units to the City over the long term. It will allow the City, working within the guidelines set by the Province, to require developers to build affordable housing units as part of new developments in Protected Major Transit Station Areas (PMTSA), where appropriate.

This public meeting will look at results of the municipal assessments conducted to date and preliminary policy directions.

The City’s Official Plan policies address important parts of city-building that affect everyone who lives and works in Mississauga, including transportation, housing, culture and heritage, the environment, and the economy. We’re reviewing the existing Official Plan to ensure it reflects the changing needs, opportunities and aspirations of our city.

This drop in open house will provide an opportunity for the public to comment on the first bundle of draft policies, which include growth management, environment and climate change. Draft policies will be posted on February 17 for review and comment prior to the March 3 open house.

The Dundas Street Corridor is a vibrant street and is a vital part of the City’s transportation network. Over the next 35 to 40 years, we estimate that the number of people using Dundas Street will grow. We have been taking steps through different studies to advance the vision of the Dundas Connect Master Plan.

The first half of the public meeting will provide an update on the general implementation of the Master Plan for the entire corridor. The second half will focus on lands east of Hurontario, specifically on Employment Area policies and flood mitigation studies and resulting policy updates.

There are many other ways to get involved and stay up-to-date on city projects:
