Ward 1 was recognized as the greenest ward in Mississauga by achieving the greatest participation in the first grow local/eat local challenge of the Let Your Green Show Campaign.
"Congratulations to Ward 1 and thank you to all participants who helped turn Mississauga green by growing their own food, planting trees or supporting our local farmers over this past summer and fall," said Ward 1 Councillor Jim Tovey, member of Mississauga's Environmental Advisory Committee (EAC).
By registering a name and postal code, each action a resident took was counted on an interactive map and used to recognize the greenest ward in Mississauga. Ward 1 Councillor Jim Tovey accepted the Greenest Ward Award on behalf of the residents of the ward, and a free skating party will be held for Ward 1 residents at the Port Credit Arena next spring to celebrate their achievement.
The award was presented by Brenda Osborne, the City of Mississauga's director of the Environment Division and Simone Banz, the Region of Peel's planning manager of the Integrated Planning Division.
"Every action taken on climate change counts in helping us make our green plans real," said Brenda Osborne, director, Environment Division. "Come back in the spring and we'll be ready with new actions to help Mississauga Let Your Green Show and use less water."
The Let Your Green Show Campaign was developed through a partnership between the City of Mississauga and the Region of Peel. The collaborative campaign engages residents in actions identified in both the City's Living Green Master Plan and the Peel Climate Change Strategy that will help mitigate and adapt to the impact of climate change at the local level.
MISSISSAUGA, December 5, 2012 – Today at General Committee, staff presented a Nuisance Lighting By-law, regulating "direct or indirect lighting...causing glare or trespass lighting" for Council consideration.
According to the Corporate Report, the by-law applies stricter lighting controls on buildings adjacent to residential properties. Currently, Property Standards By-law 654-98 requires that lighting fixtures are installed and maintained to prevent the light source from shining directly into residential property. Under the new by-law, indirect and ambient light will be regulated to:
· ensure reasonable use of outdoor lighting; · control light pollution; and · reduce glare and control unwanted spill on to other properties.
The by-law will be investigated and enforced in the same manner as the Nuisance Noise by-law. "Due to the subjective nature of the by-law, complainants will be required to provide evidence and be willing to testify in court," said Mickey Frost, director, Enforcement. "On a first conviction a fine of up to $10,000 for individuals and $50,000 for corporations could apply."
