Background:
The Government of Ontario and their partners at Metrolinx are investing in convenient, integrated transit across the province. This includes electrification of GO train lines. In Mississauga, the Lakeshore West GO line will undergo changes to allow for electrification and 15-minute, two-way service all day.

To prepare for these changes, the City of Mississauga is developing a plan for the area surrounding the Clarkson GO Station. The Clarkson Transit Station Area Study will provide a planning framework to guide future development. The City wants to ensure that development will support transit and contribute to the walkability of the area. In addition, the study seeks to:

•    Gather feedback from stakeholders and the local community
•    Complete a transportation assessment
•    Explore the possibility of converting employment lands
•    Develop a land use plan and policies.

The City of Mississauga is leading the Clarkson Transit Station Area Study in partnership with the Region of Peel. A consultant team led by The Planning Partnership and supported by LEA Consulting and Cushman & Wakefield ULC is providing expertise in land use planning, policy development, urban design, transportation and economic viability.
