A public meeting will be held at Planning and Development Committee on Monday, September 21, 2020 to consider Lakeview Waterfront Development Plans to create a mixed-use waterfront community.
The plans outline the development of employment, commercial, institutional, cultural, park uses and 8,050 residential units on the 177-acre site, formerly the Lakeview Power Generating Station lands, located in Mississauga’s Lakeview community.
The purpose of the public meeting is for:
· the applicant to present the proposal of a draft plan of subdivision, Official Planamendment and rezoning applications
· the public to ask questions and share their views about the proposal
· the Planning and Development Committee to receive a report that provides information on the project
Feedback and comments will be noted for consideration in the review of the development proposal.
· Planning and Development Committee
· Lakeview Community Partners Ltd.
· Residents, BIAs and ratepayers associations
Monday, September 21, 2020
This meeting will be held in person and online. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the public are encouraged to participate online. Advance registration is required to attend the meeting in person due to limited seating. The meeting will be streamed live for the public to view online. Further details on participation can be found in the Public Meeting Notice.
This public meeting is the latest step in the multi-year project which began with Inspiration Lakeview consultations in 2010. The development plans follow the framework outlined in the Lakeview Waterfront Master Plan which was endorsed by Council in November 2019 and have included extensive community consultation. A future public engagement session will be held in the fall regarding the parkland contained within the proposal. Once the technical review is complete and issues have been resolved, a report will be brought forward to a future Planning and Development Committee outlining the recommendations for the development proposal.
Today, Mississauga City Council approved several initiatives in relation to COVID-19 including virtual meetings for Planning and Development Committee (PDC) and Committee of Adjustment and a Library recovery plan.
“We are very pleased to be taking further steps toward recovery in Mississauga. Our Library has plans to reopen in a phased approach and our Planning and Development Committee and Committee of Adjustment meetings will resume in a virtual format. Enhanced public notification will complement the change of format. I would like to note our Planning and Legislative Services staff have remained fully operational during the pandemic and will resume holding required public meetings in association with development and Committee of Adjustment applications in order to keep our City moving.”Mayor Bonnie Crombie
During the pandemic, on April 22, 2020 Council suspended PDC and Committee of Adjustment meetings. Since the closure of City Hall, Planning and Building Department services have remained fully operational, including accepting and processing development and building permit applications with online submission processes including fee payments and scheduling building and site inspections. Public meetings will resume in association with development and Committee of Adjustment applications. PDC meeting notices provide a range of options for residents and businesses to access additional information, including how to contact the city planner and how to provide written comments by mail or email.
Planning and Development Committee and Committee of Adjustment Virtual Meetings
Virtual PDC meetings will occur in the same format that Council is currently meeting with public engagement through telephone, computer or mobile device. Applicants will be able to present their development proposals to PDC and the public and respond to questions or comments from Council and registered deputants. Information reports will outline resident concerns received up until the report is prepared. Recommendation reports will continue to summarize and respond to resident concerns. PDC meetings will be held in evenings at 6 p.m. The first virtual PDC meeting will be tentatively held on July 13, 2020. Visit the Council and Committees Calendar for updates.
Which Applications Can Proceed to a Virtual PDC Meeting?
Development applications and City-initiated projects that are eligible can be scheduled for a virtual PDC meeting. Only applications deemed to be non-controversial or expected to attract limited public interests will be advanced. If public interest is limited, an information report with enhanced public notice would proceed to a PDC meeting. If additional public engagement is required during the public meeting, the committee may direct staff to either hold a second public meeting once in-person meetings resume or provide full public notice when the Recommendation Report is presented at a later PDC meeting. Recommendation reports for development applications and/or City-initiated projects that have already had a public meeting and which generated minimal resident concern should also be scheduled for a virtual PDC meeting. If the committee subsequently determines that additional public engagement is needed during the recommendation report meeting, it may defer the matter to a later meeting once in-person meetings resume.
Committee of Adjustment Meetings
Similar to Council and PDC, the Committee of Adjustment virtual meetings will allow the public and applicants to engage in the process and meeting through telephone, computer or mobile device. The public notices will provide details about how to register as a deputant to speak at a meeting or other means of providing input about an application. The next Committee of Adjustment meeting will start the week of June 22, 2020. The committee is to meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays to address applications. Visit the Council and Committees Calendar for updates.
Electronic application submission and payment has continued since the closure of the Civic Centre. Details related to the Committee of Adjustment can be found at https://web.mississauga.ca/council/committees/committee-of-adjustment

Library due dates and fines continue to be suspended until further notice.

The City’s Official Plan provides policies that guide and direct the physical change of the city. It manages the effects on Mississauga’s social, economic, cultural and natural environment. The Official Plan addresses things like:
· where housing, industry, offices, shops, and roads should go
· which services and amenities (e.g. parks, schools, transit) are needed and where they will be located
· what parts of the city will be the focus for growth and what it will look like e.g. heights and densities
· ways to enhance economic development and job growth
All are welcome to attend the meeting or watch on the live stream: mississauga.ca/livestreaming
The City launched the Official Plan Review at a Special Council meeting held on June 10, 2019. For more information and to sign up for email updates, visit the public engagement page.
