MISSISSAUGA, ON. (November 5, 2015) – Mississauga and Etobicoke residents are encouraged to attend a public meeting and open house for the Lakeview Waterfront Connection project on Monday, November 16 at Clarke Memorial Hall, 161 Lakeshore Rd W, Mississauga.

The meeting will focus on updates to the conservation area design, as well as a new construction access route and the related proposed amendment to the project’s Environmental Assessment.

The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. with display panels for review and project team members available to answer questions. A formal presentation starts at 7 p.m.  A discussion session runs from 7:30-8:30 p.m. Clarke Memorial Hall is accessible via public transit on the MiWay No. 23 Bus (Lakeshore Rd East/West service).

The Lakeview Waterfront Connection project will result in a beautiful and naturalized conservation area constructed in Mississauga’s Lakeview neighbourhood. The project is a joint undertaking of the Region of Peel, Credit Valley Conservation and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority to add green space where it is significantly lacking. The project is supported by the cities of Mississauga and Toronto and is in keeping with the sustainable principles of the Inspiration Lakeview Master Plan.
