MISSISSAUGA, ON. (November 27, 2015) – Construction of a new waterfront conservation area in Mississauga’s Lakeview community, called the Lakeview Waterfront Connection (LWC) project, is scheduled to start in 2016. The project team (Credit Valley Conservation, the Region of Peel and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority) have identified a new construction access route that will result in a more streamlined construction process with fewer impacts to the public.

The new route is subject to an amendment to the project’s environmental assessment (EA), which was approved on May 27, 2015. The route identified in the EA ran through the Arsenal Lands in the southeast corner of Mississauga, and a portion of Etobicoke’s Marie Curtis Park. The proposed new route will run along the eastern boundary of the Ontario Power Generation (OPG) lands, where the Lakeview Power Generating Station once stood.

Agencies and individuals are encouraged to comment on the proposed new construction access route. Details of the EA amendment can be accessed online at http://lakeviewwaterfrontconnection.ca.

The review period begins Friday, November 27, 2015 at noon and ends January 4, 2016. Comments must be submitted in writing only, on or before January 4, 2016. To submit comments via an easy online form, visit http://lakeviewwaterfrontconnection.ca/contact.
