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.”

The City of Mississauga will be expanding on-street metered parking within the commercial district of Port Credit beginning September 1, 2016.
"Expanding on-street metered parking will enable the City to manage the increasing demand for parking in the Port Credit area. It will also encourage parking space turnover which is beneficial for everyone - local businesses, residents and visitors," explained Jamie Brown, Manager Municipal Parking.
The expanded parking is part of the implementation of the City’s Parking Strategy Phase II – Port Credit and Lakeview and includes:
A key priority for this term of Council is completing the studies, reviews, community engagement and land use planning with respect to the Ninth Line corridor so that the appropriate development can take place to ensure that this strip of land is an attractive gateway into the City of Mississauga from the west.
The Ninth Line corridor is bordered by NInth Line, Hwy 401 and Hwy 407 and at the Hwy 407/NInth Line crossover in the southern point. Most of it lies within the Ward 10 boundary. It consists of about 350 hectares (865 acres) of land—some of which is flood plain—with a mix of private and public owners. The City owns almost 25%. In 2010, the City of Mississauga and Region of Peel annexed the land from the Town of MIlton and Region of Halton.
I will be posting NInth Line corridor updates to this page as the process toward development continues.

Derry Road Repaving
Posted August 15, 2014—Please take note of the upcoming construction project taking place on Derry Road W., in Ward 10. This Region of Peel infrastructure project will take place during off-peak hours to minimize traffic congestion along this busy corridor. Thank you for your patience during this construction period. The resulting upgraded roadway will be a benefit to our community and beyond for many years to come. Please see the Project Notice.
Derry Road West between westerly limits and Danton Promenade
The Region of Peel is tendering a contract for road resurfacing on Derry Road West from Highway 407 to Danton Promenade (and at approximately 200m east of Argentia Road to approximately 100m east of Financial Drive), in the City of Mississauga.
The construction activities will primarily include asphalt milling and paving and are planned to be completed between 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. This will allow the contractor an 11-hour working window, which will significantly increase their daily production, reduce the duration of this work and have a lower impact on both commuters and local business.
An exemption to the Noise Control By-law has been approved to allow for overnight construction work commencing on Friday, August 22 and ending on Saturday, November 15, 2014.
Prior to the commencement of construction, the Region of Peel will distribute an information package describing the scope of work, working hours along with contact information to all directly affected residents and businesses of the planned construction activities.
Posted July 14, 2014 — I am currently addressing issues related to two cell towers in Ward 10. This is federally regulated issue and so I am working closely with the MPs in our area to address the concerns raised by the residents that we all represent. I have included a graphic that quickly outlines how the siting of towers is regulated. To find out more about cell towers, visit Industry Canada's webpage.
We are expecting huge amounts of rain today. All pumps will be activated. Please ensure all roads grates are clear of leaves and debris.
My thoughts and prayers are with the people of New York City during this recent violence.
