Help Us Reimagine the Mall - Take Part in a Walking Audit

Sep 18, 2017

Mississauga is growing and changing, which provides opportunity to reimagine some of our shopping malls and surrounding neighbourhoods.  

Reimagining the Mall is a new project that will guide the long-term evolution of six areas anchored by indoor shopping malls into healthier, mixed-use communities. The project will not include mall redevelopment but will create new visions for these areas. 
 
A series of upcoming walking audits are taking place as part of this initiative.
 
How walkable is your neighbourhood? Find out as we tour these areas, examine the factors that affect pedestrian experience, and work together to identify changes that could make these areas more walkable in the future. 
 
Residents are invited to participate and share their ideas, opinions, and local knowledge to help guide the evolution of these communities.

Background
 
In partnership with Peel Public Health, the City is undertaking a study, “Reimagining the Mall,” to guide the long-term evolution of six suburban areas anchored by medium-sized indoor shopping malls into healthier, mixed use communities.
 
These malls and their surrounding areas have already been identified for intensification in the City’s Official Plan. This study and the resulting policies will help ensure that future intensification is done in a way that enhances these areas.
 
The study will help set the framework for future redevelopment so that the appropriate policies are in place to fulfil the City’s long-term vision.
 
The scope of the study does not include mall redevelopment. The purpose is to make sure that the land use policy is proactively in place if a mall owner chooses to redevelop in the future.
 
Public input is encouraged through a range of engagement activities taking place over the next year.
