City Seeks Feedback on Draft Transportation Master Plan

The City is seeking input from residents and stakeholders on the draft version of its first long-range Transportation Master Plan.

Beginning in 2017, the City’s Mississauga Moves project asked the community to share their thoughts on the future planning of roads, sidewalks, trails and transit. This input was considered along with research and data analysis to develop a plan to guide the City’s investment in and stewardship of the transportation system from today to 2041.

The draft Transportation Master Plan offers a vision of ‘Freedom to Move’ for the future of transportation in Mississauga, achieved through the pursuit of six goals:

  • Safety: freedom from harm
  • Inclusion: freedom from barriers
  • Integration: freedom of choice
  • Connectivity: freedom of access
  • Resilience: freedom to evolve
  • Health: freedom to flourish

Nearly 100 action items are proposed that can move Mississauga toward these goals. The draft plan is available for comment online at www.mississaugamoves.cauntil February 4, 2019. The City will also host an open house and drop-in centre for anyone wishing to engage in person with the team or review the Plan highlights in print. The City will review the feedback and make any appropriate revisions to the Plan before presenting the final version to Council for approval in spring 2019.

City of Mississauga Seeks Public Input on Proposed 2019 Budget

Share Your Thoughts on the City Budget

As the costs to deliver quality City services continue to increase, what’s the right balance between service levels and spending? Tell us your thoughts on the City of Mississauga’s proposed 2019 Budget.

There are several ways to get involved. Try the budget allocator, explore the City’s budget website, request a group meeting or attend a Budget Committee meeting.

Mississauga’s online budget allocator for the 2019 Budget is now available at mississauga.ca/budget. This interactive tool lets residents choose their preferred spending option on 12 City services. Residents can also explore and learn more about the services included in the City’s budget and the overall process.
From roads and transit to fire and emergency services, library, animal services and recreation programs, City services affect people’s lives each day. Decisions about spending on City services and service levels drive the budget. Residents can use the allocator to test different spending options by increasing or decreasing the budget for each service area and then see if they have balanced the budget.
Results from the allocator received by November 30 will be shared with Budget Committee on January 14, 2019. The results will help inform the committee’s review of the 2019 proposed Business Plan and Budget.
“The budget allocator helps residents understand the cost and level of City services and how property tax dollars are spent,” said Jeff Jackson, Director of Finance and Treasurer. “It is an opportunity for people to get involved in Mississauga’s business planning and budgeting process and to share their priorities.”
