Dundas Connects is a City of Mississauga website inciting input from Mississauga residents in planning for the next steps for Dundas Street.

As a City of Toronto resident, I am highly impressed with the quality of communications associated with all City of Mississauga planning initiatives – including among others Inspiration Lakeview, the Lakeview Waterfront Connection Project, the Small Arms Project, and the Hanlan Water Project – that I have encountered over several years of blogging.
The coherence, focus, and appealing tone of the communications are a source of inspiration for me.
I am equally impressed with the fact that citizen engagement and citizen input is highly valued at the City of Mississauga – both by way of rhetoric (which is the easy part) and by way of reality (which is the hard part, and the part that matters the most to everyday, tax-paying citizens everywhere).
