Last year, Mississauga residents shared their thoughts on the future of programs and services for five key community service areas: culture; recreation; parks and forestry; library; and fire and emergency services. Combing that input with feedback from targeted user groups and other stakeholders plus other relevant data and trends will now guide how the city spends its time, resources and funds on community priorities.
A lot of input and suggestions were received through a mix of surveys, online feedback, face-to-face meetings, public consultations and at community events. On Jan. 30, the general committee approved long-range plans for those services. The plans will now go to council on Feb. 6 for final approval. “We’re very proud of the work that has been put into these plans,” said Paul Mitcham, community services commissioner. “They provide short and long-term priorities for our community services areas. They address concerns about existing programs and services, align with council priorities and investigate innovative and unique opportunities to enhance city services and programs.”
The plans will be reviewed every five years with a comprehensive review every 10 years.
