The City of Mississauga Council has just endorsed the Lakeview Waterfront Development Master Plan. The plan sets out the framework for the development of the 177-acre site, formerly the Lakeview Power Generating Station lands, located in Mississauga’s Lakeview community.
The approval of the master plan is the latest step in the multi-year project which began with Inspiration Lakeview consultations in 2010. The City can now review submitted development applications and can consider amendments to the Official Plan and Zoning By-law. Public consultation will continue throughout the process.
“I am pleased that we are one step closer to creating liveable, walkable communities connecting the lakeshore from east to west,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “The transformation of our waterfront will drive tourism, foster innovation, spur economic growth and attract a new generation to Mississauga. Few cities in the world have the opportunity to develop 250 acres of their waterfront. The potential here is enormous. As we continue to work together, our vision to create a world-class waterfront will become a reality.”
The plan sets out an urban framework that defines the character of Lakeview Village. It creates the foundation for the development of mixed-use, multi-modal, green and innovative neighbourhoods on the site.
