City’s Vision for Lakeview Continues to Inspire

Article – portcredit.ca dated April 10, 2018

For a number of years, the City of Mississauga, together with the Government of OntarioOntario Power Generation (OPG) and the community have worked together to develop a shared vision for the Lakeview waterfront that was the previous home of a provincial coal fired generating station.

The City engaged in an initiative that spanned years of consultation, collaboration and consensus,” said Janice Baker, City Manager and Chief Administrative Officer. “The outcome of the process was a collective community vision of a mixed-use neighbourhood, with a vibrant public and private realm including open spaces, cultural amenities and a hub for employment. The Inspiration Lakeview Master Plan is the result of tremendous grass-roots energy and commitment, with a true ‘made-in-Mississauga’ stamp on it. We look forward to receiving the formal application and commencing our technical review and to further engagement with the community to bring this vision to a reality.”

“The development of the Lakeview lands has been and will continue to be a collaborative effort and a new way of community building,” said Bonnie Crombie, Mayor of Mississauga. “Getting to today was no small feat. We owe much of our progress to the late Jim Tovey and to the residents behind Inspiration Lakeview. I’d also like to thank the Government of Ontario for making Lakeview a priority and for transferring a portion of the property to the City to support innovation and promote culture. Together, we’ve built a solid master plan we can all be proud of. I look forward to continuing to work with the community as we transform our vision for the lakefront into reality, while putting Mississauga on the map as a destination.”
