Have your say! Participate in Virtual Engagement Sessions Shaping Mississauga – City of Mississauga

As we welcome spring, the City is hosting a number of virtual community engagement sessions on key projects that are building our city.

Write a review Mississauga! We want to hear your ideas and opinions on projects that are transforming Mississauga. Here are the upcoming April and May engagement sessions where you can provide your input and better understand how we are planning and shaping the future of our city.

April 12 at 6:30 p.m. and April 25 at 7 p.m. – virtual meetings

The City will launch its first School Streets pilot project in three schools: Hillside Public School (Ward 2), St. Alfred Separate School (Ward 3) and Brian W. Fleming Public School (Ward 3). A school street creates a temporary car-free environment in front of a school during pick-up and/or drop-off times. This reduces traffic congestion and encourages students and their families to walk or ride to school.

Two online community meetings are available for residents of Wards 2 and 3 to get more details about the pilot project. Anyone curious about the School Streets concept is also invited to attend. All participants can ask questions and share their comments as the planning for the pilot project continues. Residents can also share their feedback using an online survey.

April 19 at 6 p.m. (Off-street parking) and May 9 at 1:30 p.m. (Bicycle parking only) – In person and virtual

The City is updating its off-street parking by-law under the Zoning by-law to support local businesses, help provide affordable housing, respond to climate change, and improve commuting, transit, and walking.

Off-street parking regulations refer to the amount of vehicle and/or bicycle parking required on private and public properties due to new development, redevelopment, building expansion or construction. land use change. The changes would not affect existing buildings or houses.

A public meeting for off-street parking will be held on April 19 at the Planning and Development Committee (PDC) to consider changes to the zoning by-law regarding off-street parking as part of the Study on parking regulations. This includes proposed changes to City parking regulations for private and public properties as a result of new development or redevelopment.

A public meeting for bicycle parking will be held on May 9 at the Planning and Development Committee (PDC) to introduce bicycle parking rates and regulations in the zoning by-law as part of the Study on parking regulations. This includes changes to the City’s Zoning By-law regarding bicycle parking requirements for private and public properties, as a result of new development or redevelopment.

April 20 at 6 p.m. – virtual meeting

The City is aerial spraying this spring and will host a virtual meeting to address any questions or concerns from residents. The spray will target and manage Lymantria dispar dispar (LDD), formerly known as gypsy moth, in affected areas of the city. Timing of spraying depends on weather conditions, emergence of LDD caterpillars and leaf development on trees.

April 20 to May 20 – online engagement

The City’s Study on increasing housing choices in neighborhoods explores ways to introduce a variety of housing options to Mississauga. Housing affordability is a major issue in Mississauga and the wider GTA.

The project team is seeking specific input on the conceptual designs for five different housing types: garage conversions, duplexes, triplexes, multiplexes and garden suites. As part of this on-demand online consultation, residents can view an introductory video to learn more about each housing type. The video includes design concepts and floor plans. After viewing the video, residents can participate in a survey to give their opinion.

April 26 at 6:30 p.m. – virtual meeting

Major Transit Station Areas (MTSAs) are mixed-use, transit-friendly neighborhoods that will provide easy access to local amenities, jobs, housing, and recreational opportunities. MTSAs typically include land within 500 to 800 meters (a 10 minute walk) of a higher order transit station or stop. They are located primarily along existing or planned transit corridors (eg, GO train, light rail, bus rapid transit). The City of Mississauga develops its own detailed MTSA policies to align with regional and provincial requirements.

This virtual information session will outline the MTSA’s proposed citywide policies and explain how they will align with Peel Region and other related municipal projects.

Provide online feedback by May 1

The City has developed a draft comprehensive street guide and is now seeking feedback from residents.

The guide offers a comprehensive approach to building safer, more complete streets in Mississauga for all ages, abilities and modes of travel. This will help ensure that all road users are accommodated and feel comfortable and safe on the streets of Mississauga, whether they are walking, biking, commuting or driving. It will also help the City prioritize safer, slower speeds for all road users in a way that improves quality of life while making a street work better.
