The City of Mississauga is seeking input from residents and stakeholders on the draft version of its first long-range Transportation Master Plan.
Beginning in 2017, the city’s Mississauga Moves project asked the community to share their thoughts on the future planning of roads, sidewalks, trails and transit. The input was considered along with research and data analysis to develop a plan to guide investment in and stewardship of the transportation system from today to 2041.
The draft Transportation Master Plan offers a Freedom to Move vision for the future of transportation in Mississauga, achieved through the pursuit of six goals: safety, freedom from harm; inclusion, freedom from barriers; integration, freedom of choice; connectivity, freedom of access; resilience, freedom to evolve; and health, freedom to flourish.
Nearly 100 action items are proposed that can move the city toward these goals. The draft plan is available for comment online at mississaugamoves.ca until Feb. 4. The city will also host an open house and drop-in centre for anyone wishing to engage in person with the team or review the plan highlights in print. City officials will review the feedback and make any appropriate revisions to the plan before presenting the final version to council for approval in spring 2019.
A public open house for the Transportation Master Plan will be held in the Great Hall, located at the Mississauga Civic Centre, at 300 City Centre Dr. from 3-8 p.m. on Jan. 29; from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. 30 to Feb. 1. A drop-in centre will be held Feb. 2 and 3 at the same location.
City representatives and consultants will be in person to answer questions on Jan. 29.
