On April 7, the City of Mississauga will hold a series of events to discuss ideas and gather
input on its draft plan for making Mississauga a cleaner, greener, healthier place to
live. This will be the public's first opportunity to comment on the City's draft Living
Green Master Plan.
"The Living Green Master Plan will help us achieve the environmental goals we've set
out for Mississauga," said Environmental Advisory Committee Chair and Ward 11 councillor
George Carlson. "Cleaner air, land and water, as well as energy conservation, waste
reduction and protecting the City's natural heritage are key goals outlined in Mississauga's
Strategic Plan - Our Future Mississauga."
The Living Green Master Plan will outline how the City can adjust its operations and
services to be more environmentally friendly, identify opportunities for green innovation, and
encourage residents to reduce their environmental footprints.
