According to the City of Mississauga's Strategic Plan, one of the City's strategic goals is to build and maintain its infrastructure for its citizens and for generations to come. A sound, functional and attractive infrastructure is integral in completing its neighbourhoods, as we build a City for the 21st century.

The 2004 Library Master Plan called for the redevelopment of Lakeview Branch Library, due to age, mechanical lifecycle issues and functionality. The library opened in 1967 with an addition built in 1974 and further renovations in 1990. The 7,610-foot facility services 22,000 local residents.

A renovation program for this older facility in the south of Mississauga has been reviewed and is ready for implementation.

The scope of work includes addressing replacement of HVAC, sanitary piping, improved air distribution, replacement of baseboard heaters and fan-forced electric heaters, removal of stable asbestos, skylight and support replacement, window and door replacement, replacement of carpet and flooring, painting, replacement of circulation desk, shelving, tables and chairs, reconfigure workspace, program room and storage space, reconfigure public washrooms to meet Mississauga Accessibility Design guidelines, install energy efficient technology due to high utility rates, provide standard interior and exterior signage, improve customer entrance including covered vestibule, introduce interior and exterior Closed Circuit Television, improve public computer workspace configuration and add a quiet study room and vending hut.

Renovation of Lakeview Branch Library will enable the building to remain in good repair while meeting customer needs. The economic life of the building will be extended; energy savings will be realized, a new HVAC system will improve air quality; washrooms will be improved, exterior ramps will be replaced to address accessibility issues, closed circuit television will increase safety; staff workspaces will be designed to accommodate today's technology; customers will have an updated, welcoming facility to gather, borrow materials and use resources. Renovations will also address the changing demographics and the electronic needs of customers.
