The Lakeshore Corridor stretches from Etobicoke Creek through to the Oakville border and connects Lakeview, Port Credit & Clarkson.
In 2012 the Residents Associations in south Mississauga recognized the significance of how our ‘three villages’ are tied together. The community engagement driven by our associations brought together politicians, city staff and community groups during the Lakeshore Corridor Summit in 2012.
Out of this Summit came various studies including Lakeshore Connects and in 2021 the City run, Lakeshore East Corridor Study. The community continues to contribute to the future potential of our shared corridor, planning
for a successful outcome for our communities.
Local residents have been working beyond the recent City run Lakeview East Corridor Study through workshops on a vision that includes place making, public realm, heritage, walkability, parks, and how they work with public transit, height, density & growth, sustainability & parkland. Building a complete community, while taking all factors into consideration.
We would like to reintroduce & reinforce the original Lakeview Legacy vision of a Lakeview Linear Heritage Park along the Lakeshore Corridor. Using our existing heritage landscape to create a human scale main street. Please see below for recent images provided by Professor John Danahy.
The three sister communities of Lakeview, Port Credit, and Clarkson each share a common connecting road. Together our communities have created a new model for development along a complex roadway. This concept posits that there are seven ways to view a road. The more complex the road, the more of the seven descriptive layers need be addressed in order to better understand the complex nature of the road usage. Some roads are described mainly according to a few of the layers, but complex roads like Lakeshore need to be considered from at least seven perspectives (layers).
