City takes Council Meeting Outdoors for Official Opening
The City is about to officially unveil a gem in downtown Mississauga. On Wednesday, June 22 at 9 a.m., Mayor McCallion and City councillors will hold their Council Meeting outdoors on Mississauga Celebration Square. This may be the first time a City Council has ever conducted their meeting in the open air. But, that isn't the only reason why this meeting is extra special: It will serve as the official opening of the City's new state-of-the-art event destination - a vibrant public square with a year-round line-up of free, outdoor events and festivals, showcasing arts, cultural diversity and entertainment. At the June 22 event, presentations will focus on how Mississauga Celebration Square became what it is today - How the concept of Placemaking was used to develop a design using the community's input. Why this is an ideal location for a major event venue. Why two separate squares were turned into one large one. Those in attendance will enjoy these presentations, about the features and plans for the Square, in high-quality digital pictures and sound. The celebrations continue with a "Panera" boxed lunch which can be enjoyed at bistro tables under patio umbrellas on the upper square. The Tom Barlow Band performs in the redesigned, open-air amphitheatre and on-site performers will make this a lunch-time to remember. Join in the official opening ceremony when the City brings its Council Meeting outdoors. Then, keep coming back, whether it's for a show, to mingle at a festival, meet a friend, grab a bite or just relax. Experience it!
