Credit Valley Conservation, on behalf of the Region of Peel and with the support of the City of Mississauga and Toronto and Region Conservation, is embarking on a new project entitled Lakeview Waterfront Connection. The Lakeview Waterfront Connection Project, an element of the Inspiration Lakeview visioning process in 2010, includes the creation of a new waterfront park along the Mississauga shoreline between the harbour entrance to Lakefront Promenade and Etobicoke Creek. The intended purpose of this project is to enhance and re-create natural coastal habitats, to build a natural park that encourages public access, use and exploration along the waterfront, and facilitate sustainable city building.
The Lakeview Waterfront Connection is subject to the requirements of the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act as a project that necessitates an Individual Environmental Assessment (EA). The first step of the Lakeview Waterfront Connection EA is to develop a Terms of Reference (ToR) for the project, which will guide how the EA decision-making and consultation process will be undertaken.
The first Public Information Centre for this Project is anticipated to be held in February 2012 and will be designed to engage the public and collect feedback that will help inform the EA Terms of Reference. If you are interested in participating in this project, please contact:
