Lake Aquitaine Splash Pad Update
Construction was completed a few weeks ago at the new splash pad at Lake Aquitaine and the park trail re-opened. Thank you for your patience as the construction work proceeded.
Staff are testing the splash pad this week and plan to open it to the public on the same day as the Meadowvale Community Centre on September 6, 2016.
"Please Slow Down" Lawn Sign Campaign
Some years ago, the Road Safety Committee of which I was a member suggested signage that residents could use to remind motorists to slow down.
Nothing was done until this year when our staff purchased, with Council approval, a number of these signs that had in fact been made in other cities.
Each ward has a number of signs and I will be pleased to provide them to residents who wish to carry out a safety blitz on their street.
In order for this to be effective, there should be a number of signs in one location for a short period of time. Over time this type of campaign starts to lose impact and it is important to keep it fresh.
It is also important to match the signs with information on social media and in newsletters and printed media. I will be distributing the signs mid September and will be issuing a media release for the Ward 9 Safe Streets campaign at that time.
If you wish your street to be part of this upcoming campaign, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 905-896-5900 to get on the list. You will be notified prior to the campaign start of where to pick up your signs.
Please note that all splash pads in Mississauga continue to operate and are targeted to close mid to late September weather permitting.
Meadowvale Water Tower Update
Cranes are on site for the removal of the Meadowvale water tower at Meadowvale GO station.
The tower is no longer needed for water and will be used in future as a permanent transmission tower for Peel Regional Police. I have asked that the name Meadowvale be painted on the new tower to identify our community. The photo on the right is an example what the new tower will look like.
