The City of Mississauga has completed a Class Environmental Assessment study for the proposed extension of Living Arts Drive between Rathburn Road West and Centre View Drive. The Study was carried out in accordance with the requirements of a Schedule B undertaking as outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Manual (October 2000, amended in 2015), which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.
The study examined how traffic operates on nearby roadways both now, and in the future. Opportunities to improve the capacity of roadways and intersections within the study area, as well as accommodate future land uses, were explored as part of this study. It also examined the impacts of extending Living Arts Drive on the social, cultural and natural environments and develop mitigation measures. The entire study process was documented within a Project File, which is available for public review.
Consultation is an important part of the Municipal Class EA process. Throughout the Study, the City contacted various agencies and members of the community and considered their opinions as part of any decisions that were made.
