Local community encouraged to attend Lakeview Waterfront Connection project open house

April 23, 2012 – The Mississauga Lakeshore community is encouraged to attend the second Public Information Centre for the Lakeview Waterfront Connection project. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 1, 2012 at the Mississauga Seniors’ Centre, located at 1389 Cawthra Rd. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a formal presentation starting at 7 p.m. followed by an opportunity for questions.

The Lakeview Waterfront Connection project is part of the Inspiration Lakeview process that began in 2010. The project proposes creating a natural waterfront park along Mississauga’s eastern shoreline to reestablish natural coastal habitats, create public green space and facilitate sustainable city building.

This project is subject to requirements of the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. Credit Valley Conservation, on behalf of the Region of Peel and with support from the City of Mississauga and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, is proceeding with an Individual Environmental Assessment (EA). The first step in this process is creating the EA’s Terms of Reference.

The purpose of the meeting is to seek input on key elements of the Draft EA Terms of Reference as well as to present the outcomes of the first Public Information Centre held on February 23, 2012.

Opportunities for public discussion and feedback will be provided. For more information on the Public Information Centre, contact Brooke Erickson at 416-661-6600. Ext 5581 or [email protected]. More information on the project can be found at www.creditvalleyca.ca/lwc.
