Today, City of Mississauga Council endorsed theLakeview Waterfront Development Master Plan. The Plan sets out the framework for the development of the 177-acre site, formerly the Lakeview Power Generating Station lands, located in Mississauga’s Lakeview community.
Today’s approval of the Master Plan is the latest step in the multi-year project which began with Inspiration Lakeview consultations in 2010. The City can now review submitted development applications and can consider amendments to the Official Plan and Zoning By-law. Public consultation will continue throughout the process.
“I am pleased that we are one step closer to creating liveable, walkable communities connecting the lakeshore from east to west,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “The transformation of our waterfront will drive tourism, foster innovation, spur economic growth and attract a new generation to Mississauga. Few cities in the world have the opportunity to develop 250 acres of their waterfront. The potential here is enormous. As we continue to work together, our vision to create a world-class waterfront will become a reality.”
The Plan sets out an urban framework that defines the character of Lakeview Village. It creates the foundation for the development of mixed-use, multi-modal, green and innovative neighbourhoods on the site.
“The Lakeview Waterfront Development Master Plan outlines an ideal 21st century community for our waterfront,” said Andrew Whittemore, Commissioner of Planning and Building. “We wanted to ensure this Master Plan was in place before we considered any Official Plan amendments. The development of the Master Plan allowed us to more closely examine the built form and density. We were also able to more fully engage with the community, than what would have been possible under the original Official Plan process.”
Following presentations of earlier versions of the Master Plan to Planning and Development Committee (PDC) on April 29 and June 24,Lakeview Community Partners Limited met with City staff and the Lakeview Community Advisory Panel (LCAP) to incorporate feedback received and revise the Plan.
“I would like to thank the community for the significant time and energy they have contributed to this process,” said Ward 1 Councillor Stephen Dasko. “We will continue to work with our community partners to ensure we can create something for generations to enjoy.”
The City of Mississauga’s proposed Parking Master Plan, “Parking Matters” is now available for public comment.
The master plan details how community parking will evolve as the City continues to grow and transform. The plan’s content reflects the input received during extensive public and stakeholder consultation staff conducted over the past two years.
“The Parking Master Plan and Implementation Strategy looks at all aspects of parking in Mississauga,” said Andy Harvey, Director, Traffic Management and Municipal Parking. “Parkingpolicy, planning, funding and emerging technologies were studied to develop an approach to parking that is made for Mississauga.The Parking Master Plan will help improve efficiency, manage parking in the future and better align public and private parking with transportation and economic development goals across the City.”
The master plan provides short and long-term recommendations focused on 10 themes. These include Municipal Parking Provisions and Management, Funding and Finance, Safety and Accessibility and Technology and Innovation.
