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 August 15, 2014—The City of Mississauga has been selected by Sport Alliance Ontario to be the official host of the 2016 Ontario Summer Games, taking place August 11 to 14, 2016.
“I am excited to welcome the best young athletes from across Ontario to our great city,” said Mayor Hazel McCallion. “The Games will not only showcase Mississauga’s love of sport and our world class facilities, they will also put the spotlight on our youth-friendly community.”
“Our successful bid focused on the strong qualities Mississauga brings to the table,” said Paul Mitcham, Commissioner, Community Services. “We highlighted our premiere sport venues, ease of access, expert event management, enthusiastic volunteers and willingness to work with all levels of government and sport governing bodies.”
The City will work with Sport Alliance Ontario to form the Mississauga Games Steering Committee. The Chair of the committee will be Peter Fonseca, a former Ontario Cabinet Minister and Member of Provincial Parliament who also represented Canada in the marathon event in the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games.
“What a wonderful time to be involved in Mississauga’s sport community,” said Fonseca. “Hosting the 2016 Ontario Summer Games will enhance our reputation as a sport-oriented and welcoming city. I am proud to lead the committee that will make these Games a success.”
The City of Mississauga will reach out to the community for volunteer and sponsorship support leading up to the Games.
The Ontario Summer Games are the largest multi-sport event in the province, with over 3,000 young athletes, coaches, managers and major officials participating in over 22-25 different sport events.

Driveway windrow snow clearing program
Posted August 15, 2014—The City of Mississauga’s Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program is accepting applications as of Tuesday, August 12, 2014 with a cut-off date of Friday, November 14, 2014 at 9 p.m.
Residents who are 65 years and older in 2014 and individuals who are physically disabled can apply for the Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program. No able-bodied person can be living at the same residence as the applicant and the applicant must not reside on a private road or live in a high-rise, multi-unit building, condominium or within a commercial property. The cost is free or $200 depending on the applicant’s eligibility.
Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program
The program will provide windrow snow clearing service after every snow plowing operation. Windrow snow clearing will be approximately 3 m (10 ft) wide to allow one car to pass. As our winter maintenance operations focus on clearing major and residential roads first, it may take up to 36 hours after the end of a snow storm before windrows are cleared. Clearing to bare pavement cannot be guaranteed. The windrow clearing service will run from November 24, 2014 to March 13, 2015.
How to Apply
Visit the City’s website www.mississauga.ca/snow for details on the program and for an application form. Application packages are also available at the Community Centres, the Recreation Customer Service Centre and the Mississauga Seniors’ Centre.
