Mississauga waterfront update: Dec. 7, 2023 Pointer article highlights potential next steps for Lakeview Village development
A previous post is entitled:
I’ve not been following land use issues in Mississauga and Toronto very closely since moving to Stratford in 2018. I’ve made it a point, however, to learn more about the decision by the Ontario government to nearly double density for Lakeview Village in Mississauga.
All of the things that I learned, during the twenty-one years (1997 to 2018), that we lived in Long Branch west of Mississauga has stayed with me.
Among the most inspiring memories from those years are all of the great insights that I gained through getting to know – from Jim and Lee Tovey and many other Lakeview residents – of the origin story of the community-driven, large-scale Lakeview development project on the Mississauga waterfront.
A large number of well-organized, well-attended community consultation meetings, involving extensive input from highly involved, civic-minded Lakeview residents, were held over several years; that is how the Lakeview project originally took shape, in a series of thoughtful, carefully nurtured, incremental steps.
The sudden override, by the Province of Ontario, of the previously arrived at Mississauga waterfront planning decisions has threatened to throw the previous community-driven planning efforts out the window.
I recently came across a Dec. 7, 2023 Pointer article which has commanded my close attention – given my strong interest in knowing what the next steps will be for the Lakeview Village development.
The article notes that Mississauga City Council has asked the province to rescind a provincial zoning order that effectively doubled the size of the Lakeview Village waterfront development.
This is an informative article – well worth your while to read it.
