In late 2009 City of Mississauga Council approved a 100% City funding change to the Noise Attenuation Barrier on Major Roadways Policy.
The Policy was changed to 100% City funding for the ‘Replacement’ of existing deteriorating noise attenuation barriers. This was done in large part to address the infrastructure concerns these private deteriorating noise attenuation barriers posed. These replacements are based on budget allotments and a 'worst' first approach with other factors considered.
What has remained un-changed in the Policy is the ‘Retro-fit’ section, which remains 50% resident / 50% city funding. This is the conversion of existing private fences (typically wood) to a noise attenuation barrier (typically concrete). With this program there is specific criteria that have to be met before a retro-fit can be considered by the city.
For more details about the ‘Replacement’ or ‘Retro-fit’ programs, or to confirm if your residence has a noise attenuation barrier, please call 3-1-1, or if outside City limits call 905-615-4311 from Monday to Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m
