Councillor Stephen Dasko will be holding a Community Meeting with respect to the Lakeview Lands (former OPG land) on Thursday February 27th from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the Mississauga Seniors Centre, Olga Tyne Room, 1389 Cawthra Road. (LINK to postal walk flyer)

The meeting will provide information from City Planning staff regarding the Official Plan Amendment and ongoing applications submitted by developer LCP, Lakeview Community Partners.

Plan to attend and please bring your questions!

On October 28th, 2019, Council voted to accept the LCP submitted Development Master Plan version 4.0 LINK HERE

Following fourteen months of ongoing dialogue by LCAP (Lakeview Community Advisory Panel) (The “Panel”) working under the Lakeview Ratepayers Association, the following two recommendations were made to Mayor Bonnie Crombie and Councillor Dasko at a meeting on October 21, 2019, prior to the Council decision:

  1. More information should be provided to the community by City staff regarding
    • the development process
    • the waterfront parkland
  2. Recommendation that the 24-storey building at the waterfront be reduced to 12-storeys (as per attached Fig 2 IMAGE below)
Fig 1 – Current Master Plan approval
Fig 2 – Recommended redistribution of  24-storey
Between August 2018 and October 2019, the “Panel” provided feedback from residents to Planning Staff, Developer LCP (Lakeview Community Partners), Sasaki (their consultants) and Councillor Dasko. The “Panel” concluded that the Master Plan was deficient in several very significant areas (listed below)

Due to the importance and scope of the issues left unaddressed by the Master Plan process, the “Panel” recommended that a very robust community engagement process with multiple public meetings run by city staff be undertaken concerning:

  1. Proposed density of 8,026 units. This number does not include the Rangeview area (that will fall under its own Master Plan).
  2. Building height profiles and location. Exploring the height and design quality of the buildings, particularly around buildings overlooking the waterfront.
  3. The capacity of current and future infrastructure (e.g., roads, traffic, parking, transit, sewers) to support this new development and the existing community.
  4. Parkland experience and design, including incorporating an indigenous village and cultural learning centre as part of the reconciliation process, and developing the idea of a distinct and unique destination as a key goal.
  5. The amenities (e.g., community programming and centres, senior facilities, affordable housing) that the City plans to provide as a result of approving this development.
  6. The diversity and percentage of floor area allocated to various mixed uses (e.g., commercial, institutional, residential, retail, recreational, employment) to ensure that the development is a complete neighbourhood – where residents can live, work and play without venturing outside the development for every day necessities – rather than an isolated bedroom community.
  7. How the City of Mississauga’s Climate Emergency declared on June 24, 2019 has been considered in the interpretation of the Development Master Plan and how it will impact the OPA, zoning and other city requirements in the future.

A community meeting will be held by City Parks staff in March that will speak directly to the waterfront parkland space
