Plan Shifts Toward City-Run Community Centre

Posted December 18, 2014

Market research gathered earlier this year indicated that a city-built and -operated community centre is the preferred approach for the proposed indoor recreation facility in the city’s northwest end.

In April, City Council approved a Letter of Intent to partner with the YMCA of Greater Toronto Area in building a facility on city-owned lands in the Ninth Line corridor north of Eglinton Avenue West. The LOI was a catalyst for both the YMCA and the City to analyse the market with respect to recreational amenities in the area. Key findings indicated strong brand loyalty to the City of Mississauga and limited additional demand for aquatics and fitness amenities given similar facilities nearby.

“These market studies are an integral part of the process,” said Ward 10 Councillor Sue McFadden. “It’s all part of doing our due diligence in finding the right solution for our community. The people have spoken and we needed this input. Now we can move ahead with our own facility.”

Parking Considerations Available Online

Posted December 18, 2014

The City of Mississauga is making it a lot easier to obtain short-term on-street parking permits for residents who need them. Previously, residents needed to call 3-1-1 or the City's after-hours dispatch line and wait on hold until a live attendant could take the necessary information in order to issue the permit. Now it can be done online via the City's expanding Online Services tool. These permits are great if you have overnight guests or are having work done on your driveway. Remember, however, that considerations can be suspended during and immediately after a snow event in order to allow plows to efficiently clear our roads.

The Lord's Prayer at City Council Meetings

Posted December 18, 2014

Councillors discussed the issue of continuing the practice of opening Council meetings with the Lord's Prayer. While there were voices speaking both in favour and against the practice, there remains an overwhelming majority of residents across the City who want to see this tradition continue. The only change approved today was that Councillors, staff and the public will not be asked to stand for the recitation of the prayer so as to avoid unnecessarily drawing attention to those who prefer not to participate.

Major Changes Coming to Waste Pick-up in 2016

Posted December 18, 2014

Regional Council voted in favour of a recommendation to move to bi-weekly garbage and recycling pick-up across Peel Region. Organics waste will continue to be collected weekly. This change will come into effect on January 4, 2016. The Region is using 2015 to roll out the new program, letting residents know and asking them to select the sizes of their carts. New garbage and recycling carts - with lids! - will be distributed to residents as part of this program in the fall of 2015. Selection of carts will begin in early January 2015 with a deadline of March 31, 2015. Much more information will be available at the start of 2015.

Transportation Committee Dissolved

Posted December 18, 2014

City Council decided to dissolve is standing committee on issues related specifically to transportation after trying it out for about 1.5 years. These matters will revert back to General Committee for discussion by all members of Council. Options around striking a Transportation Advisory Committee with citizen members will be considered in the first few months of 2015. This change goes into effect immediately and allows for Council meetings to return to a two-week cycle rather than three weeks.

City Council Establishes Diversity Committee

Posted December 18, 2014

I am very pleased to be appointed as one of two Councillors to the newly created Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee (DIAC). This committee's mandate includes advising Council on how to remove barriers and achieving greater understanding among the many diverse communities in our City, reviewing City policy through a diversity lens to ensure they are meeting the needs of all residents, and more. Ten citizen members will be appointed to the committee representing a broad spectrum of diverse communities.
