Our waterfront is more than a shoreline - it's a community.
The City has been exploring opportunities on the Mississauga waterfront at 1 Port Street East, owned by Canada Lands Company, and 70 Mississauga Road South, owned by Imperial.
The City is putting together plans blending the needs and interests of the community, the landowners and the City. There are unique opportunities at these waterfront sites to create vibrant, inspiring places where people will choose to be. We need to set the right priorities now for the future.
Future of 1 Port Street East - City Master Plan
Planning for 1 Port Street East Moves Forward
On May 30, 2016, Planning and Development Committee recommended approval of the City's Master Plan for 1 Port Street East and release of a Draft Official Plan Amendment to implement the Master Plan for circulation and public comment. This recommendation was approved by Council on June 8, 2016.
You may provide comments on the Draft Official Plan Amendment to the City. A Public Meeting will be held on September 6, 2016 to hear the comments from the community, landowners, and stakeholders on the Draft Official Plan Amendment. View the Public Notice of this meeting.
This meeting is not the only opportunity for the public to forward comments on the Official Plan Amendment (OPA).
We will be able to receive comments from the public before the meeting, at the meeting and following the September 6 meeting of Planning and Development Committee (PDC). All comments received will be documented in our "report on comments" to PDC when we ask them to address the OPA (tentatively in October). PDC will not address the OPA until the City has an agreement with CLC to protect for the continued use of a portion of the site and harbour for a marina.
Key components of Master Plan:
- Creates a vibrant place for all as a destination and place to live, work, shop, make and play on the water
- Protects for the future of a working marina on site
- Generates jobs including office jobs
- Establishes a framework for iconic architecture and public spaces
Development rights will be released for the site when the City and CLC conclude on an agreement to protect for a future marina use on site.
Update - Imperial Lands at 70 Mississauga Road South
February, 2016 Update
At the community meeting held on Tuesday, June 9, 2015, Imperial announced their intentions to find a qualified purchaser for their lands at 70 Mississauga Road South (former Texaco refinery lands). In a statement released on February 17, 2016, Imperial announced three organizations who will be invited to submit proposals for the purchase, remediation and redevelopment of the site.
On December 7, 2015, the Planning and Development Committee recommended approval of the Framework for 70 Mississauga Road South. This was endorsed by Council resolution on December 9, 2015. Imperial has also expressed their support for the Framework, in a December 4, 2015 letter to the Mayor and Members of Council. The Framework will guide the development of the Master Plan for the site to be completed by the purchaser.
