The Inspiration Lakeview Project Team was assembled to develop a vision for the Ontario Power
Generation (OPG) lands which is owned by the province and located in southeast Mississauga,
along the Lake Ontario Shoreline. A vision for Lakeview was endorsed by City Council on April
25, 2011, which was developed through consultations with over 1,000 people.
The recent joint announcement by the Ontario provincial government and the City of
Mississauga on June 20, 2011, marked the official signing of a Memorandum of Understanding
agreement to work together to develop a shared vision for Mississauga Lakeview. The signed
Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) represents a clear commitment by the provincial government
that the communitys vision for a sustainable and mixed-use model community on the
Lakeview waterfront property can be developed.
The signed MOU represents a first step in realizing the communitys vision. However,
the successful development of the Lakeview community will be determined by the commitment of
the next provincial government in power.
The question that provincial political parties should answer is:
Will your party honour the commitment by the province to develop a shared vision for the
OPG site as set out in the Memorandum of Understanding and continue to work with the City of
Mississauga to redevelop Lakeview as visualized by the parties to the MOU, the citizens of
Mississauga, the landowners, and the rest of Ontario?
